Breathe Again

keeping a day ahead when
space occupied by those
preceding still reeks of
waste is deemed vagrancy

and planning non-events
because your life depends on
it does not explain why no
demand exists in any case

living in expectancy of a
life-changing phone-call
doesn’t bring order to the
chaos surrounding you, so

unleash suspense, be an
angel freed of tyranny
leave the mess, hide the
phone, breathe again

June Thirteenth

If I didn’t mark this day in passing
if I didn’t make this date a part of
solid History I’d fail – a day to fix in
memory and memory will prevail

June thirteenth, Gemini of Mercury
an element of Air – where hunger
for awareness rests, your love
therein is seen a proper reckoning
