My Feelings

Standard

*

my feelings this time

don’t want to stay on

paper or even reach it

there’s is a modesty

to them as they rise

from my aging family

I move from pangs

of anxious pain to

serenity as giving

honor to vulnerability

brought forth a new

sweetness to be

savored alone

California Notebooks, 2014

Standard

*

till the day
we will be a clumsy
and ill-fated arrangement

of bones held together by love
when gratitude sailed with us

far away deep into the years
past crumbling or lines
holding our days

Intertextures – Crossing Rivieras

Standard

*

.
shall I describe to anyone
now or when I’m old
the many bosoms of
the Mediterranean gulfs
.
that fill my heart periodically
since I was fourteen I think
I would have not imagined
to be here still after all
.
I visited the metropolis
I lived in and left as a capricious
gets tired of lovers the oceans
I crossed the skies I consumed
.
I keep on being called here
to have my days emptied
to skim thoughts to the bones
to love those bones
