The Nyro Poems - Majestic, Reprise - Poem by Warren Falcon

Recall floods,
florid days/nights.

Planet 'UnRequitia'
spins not,

only mulls over,
over again,

again relentless

'red rover
red rover,

just send...'

Still, now,
feels right,
riches gained
by memory as
only memory
miracles can make:

Old Razor Burn,
his 'Empty-Moon' bottles,
molotovs thrown skyward
at dusk.

He insisted lab coats be worn
distributed ritually before
silver-painted matchboxes
opened, blessed with his spit -
impatiently explaining
(I always fled falling fire
and glass) -

'Such concussion
upon night sky brings
deeper stars to surface,
the more easily gathered,

Flash of Fish Star,
Formalhaut, brightest,
belly up for hands to grab,
abhorring steeples.'

Swollen Liver, his mad dashes -
we were always fleeing valley's
venial back doors then in the
name of Jesus and gin.

All this, more, an Aeon's end
is not easily outrun checking
gun splintered thumbs at portals
beyond Finned Star's shining reversals.

Gladly, Astonished Grace,

I address 'She of the Yellow Rose, '

Her stone lantern paper thin -

abounds in now/then pomes,

always in hearts made gentler

by breaks,

their simpler majesties ever within reach.
