sin, sugar and sex

sin, sugar and sex

Don’t try to praise the mutilated world.
But do remember June’s languid days,
and wild strawberries, & drops of wine.
The nettles that methodically overgrow
the abandoned homesteads of exiles.
You must not praise the mutilated world
Even though you watched the stylish
yachts and ships;
one of them had a long trip ahead of it,
while salty oblivion awaited others.
And yes - you’ve seen the refugees
going nowhere, and
you’ve heard the executioners sing
joyfully. but truly you shouldn’t praise
the mutilated world.
Remember the moments
that we soebt together?
in a white room & the curtain fluttered.
Return in thought to the concert
where music flared.
You gathered acorns in the park
in autumn
and leaves eddied over the earth’s
scars. Still do not praise the mutilated
world. and the gray feather a thrush
lost, and the gentle light that strays
and vanishes, and returns.

to be a woman is to be a house

consider a womb - that warm and watery shelter which you can not remember but can easily imagine. inside its walls, you were safe as a pea in a pod, or a heart in a body. you were wrapped like a gift and cherished. now every time you look at a woman, you examine the inside-outs of her anatomy: the arches of bones, red rivers of blood, and most importantly, the house that she carries inside her. you have long known that people are homes; you felt it in the warmth their hands emitted at evening. but now you know that women are that all the more, you know that whenever they travel they take their houses with them…consider this traveling house, this temple, this church, this womb. discover that its symbology is endless.

dear hands: i get it. you like writing poetry. but you can’t bring a metaphor to a gun fight.
