Best Poem of Robert Rorabeck

A Flower In The Rain

I want to fall on you like rain
upon a wildflower
Opening new reason from you
Scaring all the old bees away from
Pollinating your bed
Scaring all the fake men off who
Can only stand the sun
So it’s just me and you in the
The rabbits in the hole
The grasses are wet and beginning to bow
The forest is damp and sleepy
And in the meadow
I bend down and kiss your petals wetly
Falling all over you
Letting your pistil slip into my mouth
Sucking off your honey,
Almost plucking you
But not going so far
Just pulling you so that you can ...

Drowning The Graveyards

When I saw you standing there, I knew that this was America.
The sea encroaching like an unwanted lover,
Shimmering with its cenotaphs of conquistadors-
The crowds gathering separated by infinitesimal lovers.
Hands reaching out, dividing like starfish infinitely wounded,
Recreating the reciprocities of an untouchable classroom:
Seeing him attempting to pin a corsage on the hem of
Her phosphorescent dress:
Like a weeping bouquet dredged from a mortally wounded womb:
