Fellow Travellers: Shadorma

FELLOW TRAVELLERS

We’re always
Travelling alone
Companions
Merely serve
To distract us from what is
Inescapable

Portmanteau: Shadorma

PORTMANTEAU

I carry
Enjoyment with me
Wherever
I wander
And very seldom fail to
Find a use for it

Gently, Bentley: Shadorma

GENTLY, BENTLEY

Whenever
You try to take more
Than one step
At a time
You can be sure of one thing
You will fall over

Sweet Permeations: Shadorma

SWEET PERMEATIONS

Love just is
In all directions
At all times
Whenever
We choose to stop blocking it
Simply let it be

Nourishment: Shadorma

NOURISHMENT

What it is
We seek to nourish
Our first quest
The second
Within – while beyond our thoughts –
The proper aliment

While this was composed back in October I post it in the wake of the annual mania of overconsumption and frenzied acquisition.

Fellow Traveller: Shadorma

FELLOW TRAVELLER

Perhaps we’ll
Meet along the way
Share a loaf
Recount our
Adventures and disasters
Then go on our way

Pulling Teeth: Shadorma

PULLING TEETH

Tried to have
A conversation
Harvested
Sweet zero
Not hard to see how she drove
Her partner to drink

On The Job (Fuck Me): Shadorma

ON THE JOB (FUCK ME)

Poet’s job
To spark and nurture
Both free thought
And open
Emotion, even open
Doors to other realms

Vinery: Shadorma

VINERY

So tangled
So densely woven
This vinescape
Hard to tell
Whether made up of many
Or of only one

Lost In Translation: Shadorma

LOST IN TRANSLATION

I love you
A complex concept
To try to
Get across
When we know so few words of
Another’s language
