You lie white in your sorrow

Upon a dark reflective surface,

Mirroring anguish to your marrow.

Fared your well and kissed her thus,

Twinned in grief, cheek to cheek,

Echoing your solemn posture here

So like a Pompeiani cast shriek.

Caught that I may see, but never hear.

Ruins

I wade through oil wept from a statue veined

By days, ticked off by a constant metronome drone

Of the grain, the grain, the grain of sands that strip the stain

From a crying virgin seducing the sun with her moan.


I weep Ozymandias tears, which grind worlds and hopes

Down to dry and desiccated dreams of forgotten floes

Of the grain, the grain, the grain of sands where Sirius lopes,

And Rahab rasps her tongue toward the Nile’s wet woes.


I wince the Exodus of life’s love for child’s sweet, “abbas”

And shade from copper pots that creak on linen strings

Hanging from ancient doorframes of plundered mastabas,

Beside swaying palms and the tinkling songs of silver ankle rings.


I wear the scorn of a people forlorn by the sight of Time

And the moons in his eyes, which pull the oceans’ tide

Over the grain, the grain, the grain of sands’ rhythmic rhyme,

Cleansing our romance, forsaken to dance where only dreams reside.

I Am

I dream of the Tigris and Euphrates,

My mind stretching toward the dawn

Of who we are, fascinated and longing

To lie down in the cradle of humanity

And cry, filling the valley that is imprinted

Upon us all, flooding her with the salt

Of my need to understand, to drink

Every why to quench my thirst for every how

Until I am again drowning in the ocean

Of my parched soul, shaking my fist at the storm

That pours from me and I am small

Even measured against myself,

A maelstrom of need, echoing my legacy,

The heir of all who have hungered to be.

Unraveling Threads

Golden hue

Covering you

Taken aback

Laugh track

A timely moo

Breathing

Sharing

As the night flew

Finding hair

Unaware

While I discover you

Pizza stars

Verbal spars

A stern Russian blue

Nightmare

Say you care

Treasuring all that is true

Otherworldly near

Sounds like you’re here

Sleepy clandestine tattoo

French poetry

Iced tea

And I make a party of two

Bicycles

Snow and Icicles

Enchant me anew

Steven Wright

And all is right

Here with me there with you
