The trees were angels this morning,
seeming to bend their variegated boughs
to bestow benediction upon my weary brow
as I walked out my front door,
The day I was born,
phantoms took my balls hostage.
They also took half my brain.
The trap door opened.
I fell into the pit.
After ten days,
The moon exploded
over our hill tonight
and quickly floated
Youth, my untried powers
and the crimson glow of dawn,
youth and its infinite horizon,
When human beings lift a voice in song,
bowel movements, and quarrels somehow disappear.
These people at the Christian Conference at our hotel
Pulling apart the plastic package
that enclosed the turkey slices,
I tore off a few for my lunch
and returned the rest to the package,
Without the taste of coffee
lingering on the tongue,
titrating into the cells-
would the world be complete?
