Who should know better
ice forms its perfect mirror

The stations go flying by
rooftops and windows between them
graffitied brick and concrete alternate.

A different view going in either direction
each so expected they barely touch the mind
flickering images releasing the brain
from
for
perception.

the powder holds water
longer, making a stronger brew,

Don't post.

For life in full flavor on my tongue
I trade the risk of aching heart,
bare feet ripped raw on every rung
I climb to spin the color chart
of human hue, a prism streak
that quivers in the moving air
escaping me, each time I seek
to grasp I watch it disappear.

Dry your crying eye, my sweet,
it's only blessings that you miss;
gifts given bloom and then retreat.
You know that you would be remiss
to grasp so hard you can't let go
when all things perish on this plane;
unclasp your fist, it's apropos
to launch what you cannot restrain.

A smile breaks through as I recall
his head thrown back under the moon,
his cackle cutting through the pall;
our friendship was a lifelong boon.
Emotions rise, both joy and grief,
I know my loss is his relief.

(oops not 8, sorry, :) )

12:21 trips
becomes 12:12 and skips
books, "be joyful in hope".
All codes climb, slide down the same rope;
inhale disruption, exhale calm.
Praise a lord or read a palm,
claiming a godless infinity
doesn't read as sin to me.
I hear your laughter cut through the din,
you may not be here but I hold you within.

Remembering beyond this lifetime
I will watch for you,
hoping to recognize your gleam.
Looking deep into each eye
I will find you early in our adventure,
raise a shelter against earthly pain;
you had enough last time around.
Next one will be a romp.

As sweet milk transforms into a memorable
gorgonzola, I have taken you in; now my adornment,
you run in blue streaks, swirl in patterns I've stolen
without regret or intention of returning.
You may no longer be you, but you are me.

xo, mari

Through those long dog nights,
exchanging juicy bits just to prompt a grin,
we squeezed what joy in life we could muster.
It was honesty that shocked and sparked
a friendship in the lunar spotlight,
spinning nighttime into threads
tied to the earth with fairy stakes.

I see your wry smile spreading
as you roll in the grass with your pups
of a feather, laughing and patiently waiting.

Vespertine At Rivernotch

In that moment when the fireball reflection
from the sunset behind us goes ppfffttt
the bats' ballroom buzzes as gnats rise,
dips and twirls just above our fingertips.
Barbecue smoke fades leaving honeysuckle
and wild clematis, vines brush our shoulders
and pull at strands of lake-loosed curls
as we lean our heads back and breathe
the still.

aaaaahhhoooooool, doggie

It could all blow down with one big puff,
the remnants of what was lies broken.
As we stand drenched we cry Enough!
Shh, hear our love's words spoken:
Do not bemoan lost things, just stuff,
embrace what still remains.
This life will always call your bluff
but inner strength sustains.

keyboard's zipped
the rhymes that slipped
down water flumes
stay locked in rooms
with doors nailed shut
they lisp and stutter
but sung in tune
to just the moon
they speak my name
an endless game

I went to make dumplings and thighs
from my Kentucky recipe but, sighs,
it's gone from my head
and that other site's dead
a new one just sucked tho I tried.
Then suddenly who would appear
but the author, 6'3" but still dear
so if you wouldn't mind
and if you'd be so kind
It'd be great if you posted it here.

In a Sonic milkshake brain freeze
Through my head meaning leaves on a breeze
How can it be so full
Of details and plain bull
And yet bare as late autumn’s oak trees

The Great Virtue Sitting Parlor and Greasy Spoon
Posted: 10/28/2014 5:44:53 AM
*wave* Here's one for a giggle.

Give an Inch

The first time was to please an ex
who viewed her graying with disdain--
what's with that bond of hair and sex?
She dove in with a chestnut stain.
Years passed before she asked herself
"Hey, wait a minute, is that me?"
She put the bottle on the shelf,
embraced her curiosity.
Her new love takes her as she is,
declares that she can do no wrong.
Then he reveals his preferences:
"Babe, gray is fine, just keep it long."
She wonders why they even care,
she'd always thought it was just hair.

I found the empty cup,
its silver rim faded;
how many lips pressed
against it's fine edge?
I browse the labeled jars,
a pinch of this and that
revive the roses rubbed
away by warming hands.

It carries us to lands beyond
our planning or intentions,
this urge to leave our birthing pond
and leapfrog through dimensions
we had never thought to dream of.
Now we find ourselves perusing
scenes we'd never thought to scheme of;
sails set and bellowed out we're cruising.
