the world hasn’t time to wait,for the seeds to grow,for the cows to eat the grass;for the moon to wax and wane,and for the water to flow,the time it takes to ride a thought,to know which way to go,the upheavals and the angles,the voice that says: go!

Material Marriage

as rocks tumble from mountain topsand the wind steals the smoke and the dustto hide those pieces away, inside purple flowers in the river vale below, the one who winds ’round,devouring whatever dares linger upon its edges,with waters who lap like tonguesand froth like the hunger of lovers, as those rocks tumble,I saw his lifeContinue reading “Material Marriage”

God is Death

Does it look like Socrates?Does it look like a monk sitting on a rock?Does it look like a yoga teacher?Does it look like meditation?Does it look like martial arts?Does it look like music? But wisdom is found only in the waters,keeper of the memories of what is hidden,harbingerContinue reading “Wisdom”

a smile over quiet ice

it’s funnyhow he believes silence concealswhat he loves and what he does not;as if the wordless treescould hide their breathing limbs,from me,as if they could suppress such majestyfrom the eyes of a goddess. I can even feel the limbs that’ve fallen,who remain as still and untouchedas that unused dictionary,as solemn and as dusty as churchContinue reading “a smile over quiet ice”

The Rivers

the Rivers,the great waters who roam,between the fingers and the toes,those who fill your cups and pails,and who prod and poke the lazy rocks,to goad a primal impotence to move,wasting their Time in daft mockery; everyone has seen those Rivers,in the movies and the politics,and the memories of booksand all the poetries of the worldContinue reading “The Rivers”
