p o e t r y

you are the dragon

l don’t want anything but your fallen words against the back of my throat and I’ll tell you I’m not on target and you’ll tell me it’s no bother even though you are the dragon and I am the water. This doesn’t happen enough but it proves that I’m always wrong especially on those long uneventful drives in the country. It’s fine if you’re not ok with my nothing as long as you send me flowers so I can take them to my sweet mother who promises me the north side because she has so much to give. And I want it.

 

 

 

 

x-row

what if those on x row had their feet

 

held, their hands kissed,

 

what if we bathed them in hope and carried

 

them to forgiveness, what if we put them

 

at the front of the room

 

and listened to their words and

 

heard their whispers, what if

 

we took them home to our beds and

 

at dawn they groomed our pets

 

and they lived their lives under our roofs

 

while we went to work, what if they did

 

their time and knew who they

 

were, what if we kissed

 

them slowly and said goodbye

 

and pushed them away

 

and said you’re free -

 

you’re forgiven for now
