Je'free Y . Poems
University Of Life
We are the undergraduates of everyday, From the first morning yawn To the time we merge the freeway; From the moment we harvest a lesson
There is a mild breeze inside That wants to be a hurricane. But I try to weather it. By sheer Force of will, I contain it within
Not far, nirvana, nations without guns and diseases, Where men speak only the language of the heart; Euphoria, a dream away, rising on the horizon To harmonize the surroundings in symmetry.
Why Newborns Cry
I, like everyone else, Do not have a vivid recollection Of my physical disconnection from mom. I snuck in this world of loans & utility bills
I do not think that physicists discussing The plausibility of time travel will be surprised, If one day, their descendants knock on their door;
I took a couple with breakfast I wish they'd be called ‘Memory Killers’, As I now either eat waffles alone; Or, what is even more pathetic,
Soon we will gather our flesh in pitch-dark rooms, And productivity of a hard day's work will pause. Smoke is already fogging my vision; And fumes, Clogging my lungs. Desire burns in cold shadows.
As A Poet
I yearn to find the silence to hear, and Listen to the story that nature speaks of, Praying for patient attention, Not for mere talent, to create masterpieces.
The abode of tears: Tears of joy and tears of sadness. The house of traceable stressed contours, And relieved smiles on faces.
She was a projector. Mirror was her screen. Fluffy scarf of feathers around her neck, A boom box to her left, costumes to her right, Dancing, caressing the boa that she had on.
Remembering To Forget
The night? Hanukkah - Dying in the yawn of the moon, And the fading crumbs of stars Above eucalyptus fields.
Vision Of Void
Good evening, My old friend silence. I have returned from revisiting A faded song, long gone
Cage Of Crows
In a midnight dream, A portrait of your funeral, shot in sepia, Partly burnt, was tossed in a cage And in the cage was a dozen of crows.
Into These Pages
I begin by forgetting myself, Maturing into a child who learns fast, Paying close attention to a grain of sand, And seeing a whole new world within it.
Remembering To Forget
The night? Hanukkah -
Dying in the yawn of the moon,
And the fading crumbs of stars
Above eucalyptus fields.
I reminisce waking dogs
Unfolding like accordions;
Doves scattering skyward,
And a cascade of leaves earthward.
