soft fall

the grapefruit ice you stir

upon the delta breeze
while summer lost

the spark

calm down you need not

rush

the leaves to turn and

softly fall upon the crossing

walk

time to sit and talk

all the cell phones gone and what a world

would be. what a world

 

once

was and how we got along you

fingered my blouse i cried to think so

soon you would be

gone

emergenc.y

my thoughts spoke for themselves my
feelings could scarcely be
contained

any time of triumph of the spirit
appeared

rather sloppy and
unsophisticated

try the world out

take a vacation to planet earth

it won’t be paid you

gotta earn your keep

it won’t be fair cuz life on earth

ain’t fair

you could get lucky you

are guaranteed

pleasure and pain in almost lethal

doses

come and sign up at the mall see

how long you can

survive

where was where is your world

you found a place where you clicked you could go and be known you could go and belong you could go and now you’re aching to be there

where

you can dress how you like and just show up and speak out any of the lost or jaded old attitude and let them have it and turn into something fresh and funny and not so heavy though it may be honest

true

the lightning strikes the storm thunders so violently like it did back then you know you never left you are there it is here and all is real
