L B Jul 3
An early evening gust
broke the back of the day's blaze
Still 90 degrees at eight
in orange haze
Sweat runs down my neck
Through the gorge between my breasts
The wind lifts my linen shirt
runs its hands along my sides
reviving memory
of Forest Park
of a blanket in the grass

Where the pines trace
so many faces
Crackling popping kids
stolen matches, running
screaming victorious!
Blowing tin cans up with fire crackers
Bicycles, sparklers, fireworks at dusk
That whole afternoon
I spent just hammering caps

Noise really makes us kids
really
especially
annoying

Mom wants us out!
Gone! All of us!
No needs for excuses!
No cookies! No slices of bologna!
“No more Kool Aid!
Out now!
Out!”

I tried that evening
to dismiss the itchy sweat
of stupid-sister-Suzy-matching-sun-suits
at Gino's family picnic
When some kid
(I don't know?)
between the rigatonis and the sweet corn
Some kid
tosses a sparkler
into box of fireworks
I don't know?
whether to cry or laugh
I was pretty scared
Rockets going off across the lawn
and onto porch
Craze of colors through the trees
Some at eye-level horror!
But the sight of Aunt Nedda
diving under picnic table
Stockings, garter belt upended
Capsized beyond her caring
of uplifted dress

Some images just stay with you, ya know?

July 4th always lands for me
on a firework's ass
"Caps"  are little red rolls of gunpowder dots, originally made to give a snap to toy guns of the 1950s.  We figured out that by layering them and using a hammer, you could get a bigger crack.
Messy Thoughts Dec 2017
I never thought that i will fall for you.
But, here i am.
Every day, every second,
falling for you over and over again.

I told God
my struggle on finding the right man to date.
because, i'm tired of wasting my time on someone who don't
deserve me.
But i guess, He just sent me one person
who deserve me and i deserve him,
it's you.
He knows that i need someone that could change me to be a better person.

You are that "someone".
You are the one that i never thought would come.
but, i'm so lucky and thankful that you here.

How i'm so in love with every wise words that you said.
the way you take responsibility of everything you do,
and the way you take care of me like brother take care of his sister.

There are so much more about you that makes me fall deeply in love with you,
but i don't wanna share it to everyone,
or else the will fall for you too.
four virgin sisters born in the frozen woods;
  emerging from the mind                      of their older sister,
     who is also       mother
                 of the universe;
as the fair sun sets             & darkness
                                   comes w/ winds
down from mountains;                 mother running mad [      ]
out to the field,
shouting kinfolk          running from everywhere;
the oldest    sister        Philosophia wondering aloud
                                    about her sister's things
                              |
      scanning the sky w/ her magical eight-eyes;   [          ],      
      Beautia, watching her slyly;                                    sits
      beside her w/ two heads, [                  ]  one in her arm;
             it's no wonder                     [her lover] has [              ]
              gone but
          appears at her  [           ]  cracked                    window
          where she ponders snakes &       her faint         starlit
                father's statues           of the              
monumental men
of old           as he imagined them to be;  
    brawny & vague; -
     [that race of giants]            
baby sister nature trots down
the        mountainside bringing the music;
           she-goats following         |                                 her dusty      trail's
trail                [from below the earth - as from above]
trailing             their tails                                  & running ahead; mother,
possessed long into the night; [shipbuilding,
  sailing &                               navigating was not accomplished
by trial & error;                      some higher being had to instruct
  [generations have to pass for
   mankind to learn one thing]      until electricity
              men gunned each other down
                           in the streets & parks
                 | &  used swords        [                 ]
       |          the garrulous collection of
                             hairy morons,          |              if only
                         to get them [since the Bomb humanity
                                          hasn't learned a thing; now,
in a new era,                             [we have yet to learn]
wiping out the race
           through rape, starvation                  & murder:
in the wide field [                   ] of the wide plateau, [                    ]
arms spread,                     |               flat on her back        where the
genius sky echoes
ring out from the barbarous throat of
                   the fourth sister

I'm here thinking of you, my dear friend
The days keep moving and I can't forget your face
Your kindness and the love of Christ within your heart

Now you've gone to lead the way to the great beyond
I think about our life and how blessed I was
-to have found a heart like yours sweet friend

More a sister than a friend
A friend that can not be replaced
I'm grateful for your love and light

Thirty eight years of friendship here on earth
Never met a heart like yours
Thank you for bringing beauty, peace and love

You will live within my memory and heart
Til we meet again my dear friend
Ciao!

lily says she is the very epitome of sad
her heart distant on some abstract crusade
the pain of man etched in purple braids
hung her black eyes lost to dissolute and
laid out before a death of finite rainbows..
that is just sunday afternoon girlfriend

i say,the cabbage white that circles our head
flutters and settles like the love fades
but will ride smitten the cosmos allows
indestuctable and possible to near..
no further abundant like gods own bow
lily my sister..

ii

all around this blighted globe
people are told to get go
mostly by fear and guilt..

so,
so they went to the new world
so called..

but now on the whole
for the most part
that is fucked too..

the moon is still too far..
hard to say
what to do..
