Your song

Recommended Posts

your song tells a bit about you

it kindles a place

a simile to introduce

a slight background

from where you hail

 

the sex the fabric

the economics

the joy or lack of

the resolve or the

hope of rising

or the fear of not

ever being able

to provide

 

the song

is there over

time

 

it is a song

this life

 

playing in and out

sitting silent here

and there

 

 

with no voice

it sits

plays in your head

 

the boy played

and wished only

for a time alone

with his mom

 

in the park or

at the grocery

 

the girl fancied

all these things

down the avenue

 

what sparked her

fancy most

was to be loved

truly loved

for who she was

 

the lights

the streetlight

the river rushing over

making the land

green in Spring

 

the perfect hearing

we would listen

only so much

to

 

depending

on melody

 

or mood

or

 

Peace!

you write this when you

are old, and news is bad

And you are bald

and the fire still

wields itself

 

in your heart.

 

Since you're still

alive/ halfway

sane

 

halfway coherent

of mind

 

And a new tune

is possible

if it should

 

be melodic

there were gold

and there were

solid oak

 

And you were

only a

Song

 

Peace!

it hums

it hums

sometimes almost imperceptibly

behind your eyes

in your bum

 

you think of it as your song

is it only the hum of the world?

 

sometimes, the music lives

and you almost forget

that you have a prostate

the size of Bulgaria

Coda

 

She doesn't like my verse.

She says the words I use offend her.

She says that all my thinking's

concentrated where I sit.

She says "this stuff ain't poetry",

and though I don't resent her,

she wouldn't know a poem

if it bit her on the tit.
