Current Era

Ships capsize
on the way
to forever
tossing lovers

maybe one
found a lifeboat

the other
lost vision
visibility sight
or something

in this present crisis
Praying to Isis
beautifully sacred
angels in waiting

what kind of father
would I have been
what kind of son
what kind of lover
if I had been
the only one

that cannot be measured
like an inch
no real standards
outside the lines

non linear
beginner buddha
she thinks
I think
I'm Jesus

slightest misunderstanding
she would be my pontius pilot
flying away
with our plans
she wanted me
to pick a team
be a player

.1 percent less
more like ordinary
go back to churches
with steeples
priest, nuns and latin
learn about sacrifice
I was like
I already gave
ME to U

Poetry Tree

I saw no birds grieve No fallen leaves No branches on the ground None made a sound It wasn’t rotten It didn’t die in a storm Capitalism came In its progress form To take one of my last  Best refuges from me I may be the only one who noticed The death of my poetry tree.
