Best Poem of Janet Budd

From Arthur To Zen

31st December 1919 – 6th March 2005

Don’t know where to find him.
How can I truly care?
He left nothing behind him.

Tokens that would remind him
He’d scattered, who knows where.
Don’t know where to find him.

Where was the link to bind him
To his child? Should I care
He left nothing behind him?

I found a note signed by him.
Familiar yet rare.
Don’t know where to find him.

I wrote to define him
In curls and loops we share.
He left nothing behind him.

Maybe life resigned him
To desire but not to dare.
Don’t know ...

Blonde

I wonder to be blonde. What signifies
That fair Madonna of the nativity
Playing before parental beaming eyes?
The paragon dark urchins fail to be.
I ponder on the sad sadistic Myra
Mixed up Marilyn, mysterious Marlene.
Iconic blondes exude peroxide fire
Out-do the dull plethora in between.
My brown, unwieldy curls are turning grey
