Candlelight Nightsong

7 Jul

A little wild ray of light
from the dying summer moon
that runs blue through
splendid cities abandoned.
Each and every skull is
pierced with light and
slowly floating away.

As campers we find
our shadow s
leap ing
in the foliage
the golden river glowmurs
our feet outstretched
submerged
feeling the sand.

Angels divine
by the light of
their halo s
as lightning
dangerous ly
strikes.

Lips feel like
streetlights
our fingers
intertwined
like bountiful
bird s nesting-
careless divination
amongst the wild
starlight loveplay-
waiting for a
blueblossom
morning as the
stars all
meltfadeaway.

With dreamy candle eyes
we fall asleep as the
stars float above awake.
And new horizons always
have a face, and the
willows rustle in the
wingflight of a
mockingbird’s
nightsongs.

Bus Ride Overture

10 Feb

“We are stopping here for fifeteen minutes, this is nowhereville, smoke’em if you got’em,” a crackling voice speaking awakes us.

We stumble outside that building over there looks like a face we say to each other, and who wouldn’t want to stay at that motor inn.

Flea bitten and now maybe beg bud ridden hotels/motels not my thing, nor is it yours.

I take this picture holding you in my arms as we smoke cigarettes in nowhere Virginia- on our way to Oklahoma by bus. And. It begins.
