Best Poem of Lesley Taylor

Spindle

I was born in a printing press
I'll die as a thread
through a pin
in the rain
On the sidewalk.
I was simmered
and sauteed
like an onion
or like grain
I was baked and I rose up like bread.
I'm there 'cause I wander
I'm here cause I stay
Perhaps I'll never leave this place.
I'm torn and regretful,
battered and heartfelt,
I'm a baby in the womb, I'm the mother.
I'm defeated so soon.
(breath alludes death intrudes)
can we go without knowing the truth?
I'm a bell on a string,
I'm a whisp of a dream,
I'm a poem, I'm a poem, I'm ...

An Almost Goodbye

Frosty fingers intertwine
elaborate lace, peering eyes
and what is this I feel inside?
what darkness is amiss?

heart so pallid, moon so cold
stars extinguished-black as coal
and what is this I feel inside
what final frigid kiss?
