I Have Not Called Your Name

Times Read: 451


Yesterday God was a windmill pushing sand,

Fingertips trailing through the grains

And the hint of an idea 

Teasing the features of His face.

A hair away from who I used to be,

I have begun to measure myself in velocity

And shades of sticky notes.

A breeze found me this afternoon,

Blowing drier than the mouthfeel of a good chianti.

The sweat rolls unchecked between my shoulder blades.


Behind my eyes, Afghanistan 

Dreaming herself from the sand,

Longing to taste your clove-spiced words,

And vintage promises sweet as pomegranate 

Or sandalwood on sun-warmed skin.

If only I could fill my lungs,

Counter intuitively inhaling smoke,

Holding my breath to expel the gleeful beast 

Standing upon my chest, crushing my sternum 

While I do not to complain,

Focusing on the expert brushes 

That paint on my morning face.


Another day spent trying to believe in it all,

Jealous of the screams 

That belong to other people.

I will not offend 

Until my pendulum slows,

Clockwork gears grinding sand.

A shrug of the shoulders, 

My price tag.

Christ, what do I care about?

I'm tangled in the covers,

Exhausted from sleep I can't afford.


I bequeath my eyelids to you

And all that I have surveyed

Here in this nutshell 

Shaped by my ambition,

Your narrow mind,

And the shadow of a dream

Where substance is a dry wind

From the lips of an ancient God

Wearing away the eyes and the mind

Sculpted from sand

And the whisper of an idea of me.

To me it was an insight into the apathetic indifference which has crept into modern society. Brilliant!



I am probably WAY off with your intended message! :)
