the cup of parting – filled now
feel

do not say
the thing you so
want to say

wound chain wristed
behind it, left minutes
ahead of it, time

the rain
gave life to the bike
abandoned
on the grassless
front yard

my little fort

September 27, 2012 § 2 Comments

it is
where I am
when you think I’m in my chair
seemingly concentrating
on a book propped against
the cat
sleeping in my lap
what you are seeing
across the room
is an apparition
of someone far away
in a small suburban
backyard fort
with walls of
faint pictures
lashed together with
ever changing tales
of boyhood

the line
has been laid down
it’s mine
yet remains unknown

Where Am I?
