Boarding Passes

Taking some time off to fly back east.  First, to finally perform a long-awaited veteran’s memorial service for my brother-in-law.  Then to get together with family and friends– some of whom  (because of our distant addresses) we’ve kept in touch with but haven’t seen in years.  Be safe, fellow bloggers.  And have a wonderful summer.   Peace.

Isolation

our eyes once
held hands
your footsteps
sunken into mine
o’er
the cold warmth
the beauty
the wonders
of winter’s boulevard

now all
by your absence
be a blur
striking me
colorblind
in all spectra
as my mind
trips
into frozen thought

we are not here

we are
not

Restless Cerebrations

pollen from thought to thought
until “The” thought

fingers stroke where speech breathes
to where smells migrate

and yawns and stirs the lover
with infant’s eyes on a date with night

draw passion into syringe
stab into mind
and hew the tourniquet

thy bosom
the sun
flash flood

then drought in soporific beam

Secondary Soul (from the Time Capsule)

as far as she
        shines
flyeth she
   till a wall
wherein she’ll penetrate
curiously and see
          behind
to the next wall

how she might
despair
        fantasizing
great flocks
         of dust mold’d
with space
to a clay
      ever confusing
      and reidentifying

I’m born
                I live
I die
(suppos’dly)
Something’s before
                         during
                              and after
             me
(suppos’dly)

          but
of myself a part
has always been
   I
      of Everything

or is Everything
               Me?

for Now
…perhaps
