So many souls sacrificed for Mexico,

in Mexico,

May 5th. 1862,

Cinco de Mayo.

So many souls sacrificed

every minute, every day, every year,

in every nation,

at every beat of the drum,

at every beat of the heart

so many souls.

Demented Confessions 19 – Touch

Touch

don’t touch

touch

transcendent / tantalizing

fingertips evoke

The Electricity / The Ecstasy

of skin

unfurling

a million cocoons

releasing

butterfly kisses

Yet To Be Confessed

Spring – Resistance is Futile!

“Dorothy was at the sideboard, breaking eggs and spilling them into a bowl. Just watching the oval things crack in her white fingers and spill forth with a golden plop created a series of small explosions inside me. My calves shuddered as she scrambled them with a fork and they turned yellow like her hair. She poured a bit of cream into the mixture and the silken smoothness of the descending cream had me reeling. I wanted to say, ‘Dorothy Parrish, I love you’, to take her in my arms, to lift the bowl of scrambled eggs above our heads and pour it over our bodies, to roll on the red tiles with her, smeared with the conquest of eggs, squirming and slithering in the yellow of love”.

from 1933 Was A Bad Year by John Fante

April Fools, Blue Moon, Easter Sunday, Oh My!

two foolish ones

attempt

a meaningful conversation in the night

on the doorstep of spring

their words

slow syllables, emerging, fragmenting, dissolving

their words

dance dark and dizzying waltzes

stumbling

falling under starless skies

they cannot agree who has the key to the door

forgetting

it was never locked

two foolish ones in the dark

struggling to speak

while beyond the door

quiet brightness waits

“May the long time sun shine upon you,

All love surround you,

And the pure light within you

Guide your way on…”

 

 

However you celebrate this time of year I wish you love and peace.

The circle turns and the light is reborn,

how wonderful is that…

 

See you all next year.
