Lost Light

I close my eyes

and chase the light

in a world that opens up

in my imagination

and is projected on the inside of my eyelids


there amid floral surroundings

I chase after you

guided by your halo

but can never reach you


and when I open my eyes

I am still without you

a tale of two territories

once diamonds littered the fields
and gold gave the sky its shine
forget Adam and Eve
or the Garden of Eden

now corporate vessels and thieves
know not what is divine
poaching and poisoning the sea
in the Gulf of Aden

Those People, Those Seasons IV

of memories inenarrable

that evoke feelings which put you back in a moment

restoring youth

and a rhythm your heart fell behind long ago


a smile on a friend’s face

ripe fruit hanging from branches

fresh milk from the dairy to the door

the aroma of a healthy bake

real money, not currency

sights, smells and sounds that ring bells in the mind and only you know

a scene for saturday

her body was adorned with animal print lingerie
taking it off seemed a violation of some law of nature
perhaps unbeknownst to him before that moment
so he just kissed her
in her wild place
it seemed befitting

she erupted then he cuddled her
surprisingly both satisfied
she kissed him all over his face
teasing him she said
you smell like pussy, plush pussy of course
they giggled

he lifted her from the bed
to the living room couch
and wrapped around them a blanket
then watched a fantasy series
and had ice cream
her pet on his lap
and they both dosed off
and so did the pussycat

value all experience
and you never have to wonder
what life is worth
