A hot expanse swells below

This cafe floor, my Earth.

Above, if i picture it,

A bulb of light so large it might include a tree-

Between, am I, small and sitting-

Straight, I think, ready channel but feeble

Conductor.

 Let Life Force strike light

Through a balding head

Into my woken soul.

Ring scratched me

Ring chose me

Ring rang bright

When I put it on-

True it rang,

With the truth of light

Filtered through fathomless

Aeons before molten bronze.

‘It’s a very powerful stone’, she said,

It knew me before I new it

It called me to it,

Its point, set in silver, dangled sharp

And chipped top finger flesh,

Exposing backstage blood and raw; but

Flesh flapped back and sealed beneath the ring-

A rock called citrine, post-card from Earth’s core.

Firm and awake is how I feel,

Now that day is done

And night is

Come to stop

The whirr of consciousness.

Today was easy,

There was no drag,

Low air resistance and I

Soared high, even

At my desk, sat on foam.

After lunch came cruel gut,

Prompting truancy, again

the shame of crunch and swallow-

But it passed and day dawned anew

With afternoon and bloodstream teeming-

Tasks were done and now,

I’m happy to explore the night and trip on sleep, by chance,

Busy looking for a dream.

Hope fits nicely into Today.

Yesterday was small,

An awkward size, to small to

Hold an egg-

It held salt, as much as filled it, instead.

Hope fits today,

Fills it full, pills

Throb through veins,

Skin drinks up the breeze,

Food floats light and

Sense is song

Happy strings strike happy chords

Haphazardly, and I realise I’m

Making progress and

Heart heaves happy twang!

What disrupts balance?

What brings balance?

Perhaps it is not a thing sought but

Rather, the knowing how to seek-

I won’t summon thirst and hunger,

Let them call me when they will,

Let them approach with steady paces,

I’ll greet them them with slow, frugal

Hospitality, and hope they’ll be the kind of guests

Who leave early, to beat the traffic.

 

 



5 Second Romance

Pulsing frame cool against

My hot cheeks burning through

Finger cage of cupped hands.

Fringe spilling over hands held

High to keep out awkward offered affection.

Fringe gaping to expose the shame of

An exaggerated forehead.

With mis-placed hairs in mind

Hot cheeks singe and

The current is fused.

Now, Mascara’s tracks are blurred to bruises

And smiles flake the face,

Like butter too cold for bread.
