Curves Of Perception

corners of streets

speak in the language of emptiness.

what waits outside the orbs

of eyes. the liquid  curves

of hazel perception

the clever has long left

me alone

for i have no  treasure to give.

my desires mouse traps that rattle inside

my thumbs are wooden and slow

forgetting speech

only a closed word do i remember--

wrapped in paper tied in twine

a wonder that can be

squelched into hope.

 

must i search for a moon

you have stolen

strange one

the buttons on my cloak cold

and dream of gleaming in warmth.

of a ancestral fire  a simple hearth

coins of spirits jingle spilling

from pockets long in need of sewing

much have i searched

 in hunger of language

 

my bread

that i have baked in secret

was spent feeding

the sparrows

that follow me after me

 

little one leave me alone

for your songs lodge in my heart

i want a thinness in

the onion of my  heart

for then i will not suffer

but the words you scatter

flow oceans--slice...

i am but  a scarecrow that

abides  in moonlight

and as i spend

the last lock of hay in payment

the moon laughts

from the dark forest of the sky

curling midnight

and the leaves swirl

from my empty clothes

that have stopped

 to pray in the grass..

as a moon rolls nude

through the clouds.

Haunting memories... and being left in the middle of nowhere... I know these feelings, Andrew, you have painted them so well for us. I wish you strength.
