Let Us Drink

Let us drink the bitter wine
Until our dire woe
Which bedrives us to a restful privy
Where we stub our great big toe

Let us drink the fire water
Long, hard, and deep
And when the wolves come lurking
We'll be fast asleep

Let us drink the dark-brewed ale
Against a night bored cold
For breaking fast and supper, too
Lest ere we die growing old

Let us drink the foaming beers
Pints adozen, three dozen, and more
We'll tempt pretty maidens
Out to the twirling floor

Let us drink the sparkling clear water
For purity and truth
It'd be better for us
This, I think, forsooth.

Maureen, April 25, 1975 - June 10, 2003

There should be a single word
Just one word
That can conjure all the beauty
This one person holds

I knew her
And I loved her
My divine muse
Tragic angel

But that one word
Just one word
They are all dumb in my ears
Dumb in my mind
And I am too dumb to find it

Shocked in loss
Ignorant of the loss
Until now
Now, I cry
I sob, face held tight
Until the ache of not crying
Clenches my jaw

Locked at the keyboard
Searching for the one
Reaching
But I know it isn't out there

Neither is she
This bitter blow
I lament and shall
For long whiles

Vain searches
For just one word.

Tidbits and things
All tied in ribbons and plenty o strings

He'll tend you and care o'er you
Delphy'll sure see him through
Though for her, you might just be screwed

She's not near as likable
Not so charming
Damn to near terrible and even a bit harming

Let Taggart smooth her down
Whenever you're in town
It's his smile that'll build you up and her frown....

Whoa!! Hey!

That's what all the adventure's about
Winning reputation and tout
Stride forward all confident and without doubt.

Taggart's around here some'eres
He's sure to be here soon
Smile you silly noble loons.

The Way it is

The Way It Is

Life's a long highway
The road signs along the road
Telling you where to go
They're all cliche

Look on the right and on the left
Turns of extreme
Leading on to more extremes
Getting you nowhere

All the time you are nowhere
That nobody else hasn't been
Looking for the new place
an original
Knowing you'll never find it

It's lumps and bumps
hills and curves
A variety of dilemmas
That make us sore, swell, and ache
No roads have none

Depending on the vehicle of your progress
You may swerve or plow straight on through
either way there is the chance
Some reckless happenstance

Can we afford the time and effort
To aid those trapped and brokedown
In the median
On the side of the road
Risk ourselves and our progress

Their sake or ours
Beware of hijackers and thieves
Keep a watchful eye on your trailer
Help those of earnest need

It's a nowhere world with nothing to do
All wrong turns and potholed roads
Where ever you are going

Don't turn off
Don't turn around
Just keep driving

And hope you don't breakdown.

The Way It Is too

It's a tired grip that holds the world together
All the people are prying
And pulling to get the fingers loose

We want to just spiral out into nothing
Just burn up in the sun
Sink to the bottom of some forgotten ocean
Be as far from ourselves as possible

We want to look back and be ashamed of what we did
We want to cry about our shame
We want to be defeated and trampled
Punished, as it were, for our crimes

But we do not want to confess
We do not want to be caught
We do not, in reality, want to feel the pain of our own punishment

We romanticize the end we know will come
But we deny the time of its arrival
We deny our part and place weights evenly across any available shoulders
Innocent as babes, knowing we increase our guilt

All it takes is the tiniest plea for forgiveness
Accepting that forgiveness
In whatever form it may come

The grip really never loosens

Isn't It Hard

What do we do about being split
You know it's not us
But me
Or I

See how thin the razor can slice
So very thin
A soft pat
And miles of coarse toast to go

Would that it were
That we could give excuse
For selves
Holding self aside

Where's the end
And my pistols
My lost sunshine
That retreating path

Damn complicated wrong rights
Right wrongs
Clenched eyes and borrowed time
No more tears and no more smiles

There once was a chuckle
A gleam of mischief
Replaced by woe and responsibility
A daydreaming ache

Wishing that more was really more
And tasting the ghost of sweeter times
Dreading the touch
Needing it all the same

Delving eyes for the fire
Finding the dying coals and ash
Can't quite resurrect
The old heated burning soul

Thinking of escape
Distance and wonder
Mountains and mineral plunder
Stumbled and trodden paths

I wonder when I died
And how it happened
I admit to confusion
And now the truth

The truth
A well spoken lie
Believed and repeated
In a heartless strain

Like the Earth, my mean mistress
Wrapped in leathery bonds of pollution
Begrudging of her tainted bounties
Where it's all brine and can kill in time

Will a conclusion be the last word
Should one get stuck in the folds
Undigested, unspent
Understood, by who and when

I like the random confusion
When it works with me
Wielded like some melee club
Spiked of all that's foul and wrong

Injured for longer than memory serves
Limping along to get along
Dying again with each lessening word
The pain of love long out lives the joy

It's a cry
Not so much a belief
A poor wish gone awry
With rags of hope tying it together

How do I describe this odd solid
Life's new contraption
A pain maker
A rears and ahead

One long march into bitter lament
And the hope leading, pulling, tugging
That tiniest bright pinpoint
The goal amid the darkest hour

How more sad can this get
Swiftly and suddenly
What's to say but silence
Tiny steps away

Hands in the coat pockets
Head down
Eyes aglaze
Moving along waiting for better days.

Castor and Pollux
Destined to sail on separate mains
By their gracious Mother
Birthed
Gifted each
By his own renowned Father
Unalike but Brothers
The same
One to live on in forgotten years
And one to die as the age passes
But for request of love
They both now shine
Immortal for all time
In the sky

She Whispered To Me

And she whispered to me
She whispered so quietly
Her voice was a tickle
A blissful buzz
And I took joy in knowing her secret

We held hands
Whether in wrestled grip
Or lovers clasp
Our palms matched
And I took joy in her touch

She could create
Create with paint and brush
Photographic lens
Words, paper, and pens
And I took joy in the beauty of her mind

She was pulled on
Pulled down
Life beat her dreadfully
Still she smiled
and I marveled at her strength

When my mind aches to know another secret
The sweaty brush of hand on hand
To know beauty
And to carry on when there is little reason
I take heart from all of her that I knew

There are so many words
Which explanations fail

Beauty confused
Sorrow left shallow

Happiness washed out
Anger impotent

Feeling across the barrier
Illusions that fade

No one quite reaching
Understanding not received

And lost.

A Final Cut
.
Let us talk about the edge
Its keen, smooth, rifled surface
Removed of knicks and burrs
How does it cut?
My, how it shines!
Not so when dipped in thick ferrous brine

Once and half again as long
Than an arm, so deftly turned
By, swung or through, taken
At contest's end
Dull and blurry, blind
To the darkening of each mind

In what frame do these words speak
Of sword, battle, and loss of life
Nay, tis but a pittance
So shallow a code hidden
Masking what is loved and lost
Deciphered in time at great cost

While sleeping I mumbled my thoughts
One long ego riddled scream
Into the darkness, so cliche
Waking again to have forgotten
And relive them all day, the next

Not remembering a word
Discovery hell
Stumbling along the same path again
Vague illusions standing in recognition
Passed away as strangers

Bubbling cauldron spilled
Hearts vie and boil
Among dying heat
Sizzling ashen coals
And choking steam

It is an end
A sweet, bitter end
Cloaked friend and bosom pal
Thick wrapped covering coat
Comfort on a long road

After a dead fire
So void of direction
Moving at speed
Crashing along, through
Back to the start

While sleeping I mumbled my thoughts

So froze up inside
My life is bad poetry
Big words that don't mean much
And can't rhyme

It should read longer
But it doesn't
Like all good work
It ends before time

Leaving someone
Wanting more

John Lee Hooker's strummin my soul
So be good and smile
Be good and smile

The world don't know you
So be kind
Be kind

There ain't no love out there
Make some and save it
Oh, please save it

You ain't owed nuthin'
That's for sure
For sure

It's all blank and gray
Get my brush and paints
My brush and paints

Gonna leave it better than I found it
Gotta go sometime
Sometime

There's too much to do
Not too soon
Too soon.

I'll wake up tomorrow morn
What great hope
Great hope

One more day above ground
Tryin to make it right
Makin it right

John Lee Hooker's Strummin my soul
And it's time to go
Time to go.

Spending time taming words
Making them speak
A mind's peace

Coding morsels
Of sorrow
Of depression

Seeding hope
Of love
Of clarity

Time not wasted
Vanity staved away
Humbly seated

Hiding away the real words
Within the words left on screen
No notions of truth

No notion of fame
No glory
Just the moment

All felt on the surface
Smaller than a grain
One long beach

Meaning and mean
Lost in the surf
Jetted jetsam

Counting letters
And placing them together
One more line and then we'll go.

Come hither, you look at me
Fool I am, I step closer
The space keen, steep
Paths lined, crumbling
No fear, only the smallest caution

Snarled, snagged
Caught for true
We'll have to see
What I have the means
To do.
