Wild

Riptide wind

whips house

 

hurling tiles

like ammunition.

 

I wake from

dream of you;

 

voice in my head,

sweet, lilting.

 

They say the

voice is mirror

 

of the soul

 

& yours

& mine

 

make

 

honey twisted

serpentine

 

across the space

between us.

 

Our melody’s

the same

 

earth tone

rise & fall

 

beneath the

bracket

 

of this sky

so wild tonight,

 

as we are.

Perfect

Saucer sea

sky high

 

limitless.

 

Rolling through

universe, this

 

world of luminosity

 

jewel beyond

jewel

 

razor light.

 

Dog watches

seagull flight

 

winds of time

second perfect:

 

water like

sea glass

 

I can see

through

 

the soul of it.

 

Love pockets

sidewalk

 

razes cracks:

don’t step on

 

the bears:

 

I’m riddle

perfect.

Mackerel sky

morning rose

 

years roll by

like dust

 

imperceptible

interchangeable

 

lost from us.

 

Dust motes

in empty room

 

hand reaches.

 

Gold falls

through fingers

 

nothing to grasp.

 

Your words

of love

 

echo:

 

I wait for feeling:

my heart

 

transcendent.

 

Paradox

Before I go

I’m longing

 

to return:

to silent

 

depth of

winter.

 

Venturing out

I’m planning

 

my retreat,

 

from life’s

exhausting

 

whirlpool

of desire.

 

I seek reprise

from

 

conversation’s

megabytes.

 

Before I go

I’m waiting

 

for this day

to end:

 

the car

the train

 

those city

streets

 

familiar faces

glimpsed

 

& left

 

I’m haunted

by my hermit

 

need

 

for solemn

introspection.

Us

We talk in cypher

your ideolog

 

well versed in

pattern

 

of retreat.

 

Sun stares

wintry pale

 

hovers on its

silver sea.

 

This is the

magic hour:

 

nature of

becoming:

 

breath to body

conscious.

 

Eyes flutter:

an empty room,

 

we talk in cipher

I have no master

 

switch, translation

for the ‘deal’

 

hands express

mile upon mile

 

of empty;

 

I am

palladium.
