Please You

Please You_2

Please you.

Please me.

 

Emerging

from the chess game

with Time,

the fall of the cards

and the testosterone

of the mother board

the grim eye never blinks

and never pleases;

the stripped man runs,

but never arrives,

pleasing his desire,

but getting nowhere fast,

and the banner’s warning light

pleases only

low flying dreams.

 

Please me.

Please you.

 

Through the beautiful mess

of smouldering

and suspended animation

the totem bird topples

but cannot fly

to anyone

and everything hangs

on the edge of motion,

drawn by nature’s laws

to please you,

to please me

but frozen in eternal stasis;

a clock without hands,

a river of ice

and the solitude

of endless space

beyond the stars.

Intersections 7 – I moved to Vancouver in the ’70s – such a different city then with more funky old gingerbread houses than high rises. The energy of the hippie scene was still high and I knew this intersection and its smoky ambiance well. No ‘hippie’ could afford to live here now and the flowers have migrated from long hair to short lawns and tidy condo gardens.

Intersections 6 – one of the oldest parts of Vancouver and an area I like to stroll around in and quaff a pint or two of local brew.
The description below the image tells it well.

Intersections 5 is a location I avoid whenever I can.  It is an essential yet complex maze constantly filled with heavy traffic, frustrated drivers and accidents. The description is below the image.
