When I open my overcrowded closet
What do I see? But every stamped deposit
From a broken heart on one shelf
To a worn out mind, reminder of my old self
Because of you, upbeat the bliss,
to ring within, and prompt a tune.
Because of you, a gentle kiss,
this day's to bring where flowers bloom.
Because of you, my thoughts are clear,
Sound that brings
Sounds that make
…From an ol’ music box…
Sound that tears
Tears from one’s eyes
And wrenches forth
It’s hard work,
the underwater jellyfish that need to keep being avoided
along with other problems that never go away
like litter that infests the sand each morning,
Red blossoms melt in a fog's drizzle
Gentle rain pouring roses in streams
How beautiful the crimsom waterfalls
How fragrant the blood of our dreams
Heartache in measures of love songs
There are clouds in my tea
Gently stirring leaves to fall
Colors sifting to the bottom
Illuminations of trees breathing
And I sit quietly with my cup
Knowing that thirst saves me
You don't bring anything into this world,
And you don't take anything with you,
So all you own when your life's unfurled,
Are your memories of the life you knew.
Eastern North Carolina,

and you're the first casualty I hear of.
He is summer hunkering in the eaves
Caught between testament and
A spoiled plum-breaking twilight.
Love pauses again to lie down
And be acceptable.
You ask if he knows how he will
