Adrift

 

ADRIFT

 

Germinate them
 hope proclaims.
Dreams
spew their steam.
Contrails
lulled, a wayward breeze,
Evanesce.
Make thine own regrets.

Here

Twas put before me

Once.

Who is it I am?

And given to wonder

Why,

Is it to matter?

I am not so much that.

No.

Rather more this I think.

Trees and river and

Sky

All came there

With me, within me

Me

Was there to see.

I’ve done it.

Yes.

I’ve worked it out.

‘Tis plain to see.

At last

I am

what I am to be.

Destiny Abridged

 

DESTINY ABRIDGED

 

I knew about Paris,
the loveliness of it,
the artist haunts rue Bonaparte,
plumbs the depth of vintage bottles.


Why ever did you fly?

 ~

Them

THEM

 

My wealth is not jingle
nor a heart forever throbs.
No,
‘tis Them beside me strode a mile,
saw me home
and asked to keep my smile.
