Best Things Through

]]]L-I-S-T-E-N!:

…I have sound, and, the words come;….
(They pass)….

They’re not mine,
and that’s best, too.

Reaping Blades Of Sunny Grass

I was outside
Mowing the grass
When I thought,

People have got to go through
So much
Just to be so simple.

Each grown blade
Waiting,
Not a clue what’s coming;

I know what’s coming,
Yet haven’t a clue about it,
Except to say,

People take care
And that
Takes a life
Meant for giving.

Then,
Like a whirling blade,
Like a gunshot,
Like failure,
Like a crawl,
Like splendor,
Like life,

Comes mysteriously calling
Something I think like what I saw as myself
Behind the lawnmower that day.

Poems

Fools Lot Accepted

I am
Laurelled
By indifference:

Your mothers,
They will not love me;

Your fathers,
How could they understand?

There is nothing but love
In the self making war;
Wisdom as light
Shines no victor.

Wisdom is
No victory,
No loss.

I send out my messages
So I can dissappear
Into the chorus,

Accepting
Fate’s not some hoary old grandfather
To smile and bounce little lives on bent knees.

What else to do, though,
But to play hard,
A good child
With meaning;

To choose wisely
This fools lot,
Cracked mouth
Unbroken,
Smiling wide.
