Could have

painted pictures,

instead carried

up a corpse.

Walked away

with roses,

two stranded thread

for warps.

Behind,

an empty tomb

lined with

metallic gold.

Blued palms,

legs and arms,

part of the soul

I sold.

I and the you

this is me,

know what

Asked with tongue,

and your heart replied.

Not drifting,

Strangers in a crowd,

side-by-side.

Mirrored man

of mind’s eye;

I heard

your line

falls short.

Walk tall,

cold blue floor.

I’m unlike your people. 

Events of an insipid life,

now worn as truths you lack.

What earth pulled down,

moon pulling up 

from land takes back.

Rivers wide running high,

washing away what I feel.

Only you’re sure of what you see,

sayin’ what is said to keep it real. 

I’ll take the hand of a thief,

telling I’ve nothing left to steal.

an ungloved hand,

stricken heart

stirring storms

on land.

To the

mourning dove,

heard from

wire perch above,

Cooing

higher thoughts

than thoughts

of love.
