Measures from The London Hours

Standard

*

something to do with measures
unknown
to others the length
of my despair whether is
it by nature, mine
or a not understanding of facts

of the jokes
among men, their secret bets
their sudden shoulders

and all was lived
and built, all that had an essence

to dust them off
to cough them up
it’s all forgotten
at once.

I don’t seem
to understand other’s
measures, the sense of
their steps, it’s long
far from me.

The Route Of The Skies

Standard

*

I remember well

the route of the skies

I may be on clouds

.

as you said

 .

I may not need

to tread on soiled

divorced paths

 .

the air is thin above

and the view is fine

I wish my wings back

On Being From The California Notebooks 2016

Standard

*

when my words
surfacing out of
poetry define
who am I
I cry

I also
rejoice and
stand still as
if suspended
all at the same
exact

time holding
that tiny particle
of truth inside me
that shining in spite
of me

Places From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
I know some
tongues that aren’t even

tongues languages
of a heaven I don’t recall

learning but I own
I may be foolish not

to practice but is that
a requirement

how do I go back to
that country where

the horizon doesn’t lay
where each drop is

gold filling up
the atmosphere

where we met where
I met myself where

I was where
I am today
