Like Blood, Like Water

LIKE BLOOD, LIKE WATER

Love is like
Blood … is like water
It brings life
If it stops
Flowing then there’s stagnation
Putrefaction, death

A Role In The Hey

A ROLE IN THE HEY

Hey after all
My life could be worse
I could be you

Hey after all
You life could be worse
You could be me

Hey after all
Our life could be better
We could be one together

Pirouette And Parody

PIROUETTE AND PARODY

What tawdry melodies
What over-frequented bars
What cliché-laden notes

What lustful desires
What spiteful tricks
What fearful denials

What we choose to call love
What a grotesque ballet
We turn it into

Duel Purpose Weapon

DUEL PURPOSE WEAPON

She always did have
A soft spot for irony
Both crutch and breastplate

Backstory

BACKSTORY

She had tattoos, she said
I’d have to pay to see
But then I’m miserly
Rather squeamish besides

Nuptials Ongoing

NUPTIALS ONGOING

She’s always found right
Whereas he’s always found wrong
He’s her perfect match

He’s probably right
Whereas she’s probably wrong
But he keeps the peace

Chiselling at it
Venturing past right and wrong
They’ve found perfect peace

Season’s Greetings

SEASON’S GREETINGS

I bless you
For reminding us
Of others
In essence
However we may view them
Not other at all

Evening On The Porch (3a)

EVENING ON THE PORCH

Fine balance
Revelry subdued
October
Decked in leaves
I your Spring, you my Autumn
Soundless harmony

Shadorma November

Lackaday (1b)

LACKADAY

Who’d have thought
After all this time
Such a short
Encounter
Might still be gleaming so bright
After fifty years

Shadorma November

Open Ended

OPEN ENDED

You are invited to take the air
On wings for too long trussed
(Not the best sort of trust)
So switch craving to braving
Half the sky is already yours
The other half yours to explore
