“i”{exhibit #3}

up
lantern
sky
fish
swimming
through the oxygen
ribbons cutting of
blue
yellow eyes
disguised
behind galaxies
watch us
or don’t at all
yellow beat
good lovers
in the street
boy
what
a
way
to
be
I
wish my life
could take on
meaning
there’s a rushing
on the shore
a battle
drowning
in the depths of
the dark moor
the plains across
a battered sky
abandoned souls
ready to fall
waiting to die
we wait
our turn
expiration
trains
running
in
and
out
of
(time)
stations.

Way to be
a peace loving enemy
burn the flag
as it strangles you my
child…the holly crawling up the side
tasting red, poison tongues
sister, your dead
way to be
my lovely sister
my guardian angel
hiding in the shadow
of the bottom of the
sea, me a holy stranger
choking flags
church bells blinding
god, what a sight
lovely to be
alive, sister, to be
one in oneself
cherish blossom,
blossoming flower
catastrophy
in death row
soon to be free of strangers…
let them be
peace loving enemy
enemy strangers
hound eyes, angel sighs
standing high
flying through the great doors
mary’s eyes
sister let me be,
let me kneel by the angry sea
drowns the good life out of me
my spirit, the thing
got away
way to be
my peace loving enemy
blossoming flag
traveling to the grave.

the smokes
beat the smokes
looking for someone to play a game of murder
heart as cards, assassin of
the night
the smokes
take me to
the place
where souls take flight
the smokes, the ghosts
kiss me in the canyon
we’re wolves
we’re shadows
dead eventually
no escape from grim
smokes, smokes and blades
smokes an mirrors
stars my eyes
superstars, super light
villains running with the dogs
howl it, howl it
we are beasts
moon beasts
howling for the moon
for the love, the love
the smoke and mirrors
dash far away
my speeding bullet sweet heart
into the flashing tv,
you’ll be out of their sight
illusions in her eyes
grim slinking
round corner
trailing shadows in the smoke
in the clouds, the small rain clouds
it’s a personal night,
sky.
peace.
