Eyes

Eyes –
There are good eyes
There are evil eyes
There are eyes that look but never see
There are eyes that see so deep
They cut the skin and break the masks
We wear
There are questioning eyes
And eyes that never answer.

Eyes –
I was told to fear them
As a child and came to revere them
Through them I saw secrets
Through them I opened vaults
Of human mind and soul
Then came your
Eyes!

The only eyes to puzzle me
To suspend me
To turn me a child, fearing
Eyes.

Unkind Anger

Anger corrupts the soul my son
Said the woman wrapped in the
Ugliness of the years past.

I wondered how unkind
Time can be.

Classical … typical

At the door she stood
Half naked the light went through
Her see through open robe
Half open to be accurate
Occurred to me as I was
Half listening to her stream
Of words, a self held
Conversation.

How typical of you
Always half never to end
Can’t you hold the way
Can’t you reach the climax of
Success can you not persist
A classical line she toed
Always.

How typical of us
To remain unchanged for
So long stuck in the
Old ways afraid of saying
I do not love you
I do love you not
Perhaps I hate you because
I can’t leave you to
Your self held conversations
And your nakedness
And your halfway doors
Where you always stand
I can’t just leave you
In a whole decision once
In a decision undivided
I can not leave you
And
Go.

Indigence

Indigence flummox!
Hundreds fleeing the eruption
Home is flattened earth.

Cudgel

Cudgel –
A heavy built boy who was
Often bullied at School
Now a success sought after
By old buddies two faced liars.

She walks … Her smile

She walks with a
Smile on her face
She walks with a
Spring in her step
She walks with a
Flying hair,
Like an Eagle in the
Sky,
Like the Wind stirring a
Sandy beach
Like my heart
After seeing her
Smile.

She walks and I cry.

Unbeknownst

A gentle man enters in
A workman clothes unbeknownst
To the crowd – ignored.
