Before we were wed


Before we were wed
    how often we'd said
love lasts and no foolin'
    we've written the ruling

alas    how come    why
    you 'n i made time fly
too soon and we split:
    never mind and that's it

alas    howcome    why
    time flies to th' limit
twain t' two gone by
    before we can tame it

exposure to wind
    and exposure to weather
blows off yr headdress
    'n sprightly tail feather

epode to life (singing ,,,

oh i looked it over
    happy over
still it's over for a long long time

Mud Bay, October mmix


Mud Bay, you'll stay as you were
    in our weather eye this day
dank desolate late october
    heavy drizzle    wind tilts umbrellas

and cameras sprayed with rain
    high tide featurless unmoved
such pounding on grass and reeds
    clumps of heavy-headed flowers
saturated and subdued    like us

no we didn't shout in confrontation
    nothing dramatic    too busy coping
by mutual support    tangle of togs and gear
    elements aim breath-taking shots at us

lone great blue heron empties locality
    at our substitution and elects distant post
marching legs of railroad    trestle dwindling
    like our comfort zone

blown away and had enough
    we seek alleviations of car
content to be present and in companionable spirts
    when earth and weather conjoin
    treating us to spectacular visitation

to laughter insubstantial


You don't have to be ilka moor baht hat
    or doolahlitap
to dig th' infra
    simply touched
when you encounter number's outcome
    death's door
dearth of plenty     dower of none

cheer up    says sparrow
    layin' down bow-n-arrow
cue tip to review

likelihood's where we're at
    certainty - trust in bonce's sponsorship
gone for a burton

trees in breeze     mare's tails in sky
    supply verity to you and i
anticipating rain or clarity
    consulting obedience    habit's tie

on measure    we stake our lot
    crossroads of heart's dilemma
passion a-sighin an' a-sobbin
    topknot counts us out
guts in denial
    as evermore invites us in

suzerain transcendence     sacreblah
    dig the infra
doff thinking capstone
    feel how and what and is
source of up and does and wrests worth

egyptian goddess nut overarching sky
    twin of world-god geb
pictured bending from horizon to horizon
    in touching embrace poised
primitive vision    shattered as visions must
    until beyondwherewithal    manumitted from human whatness

my    oh my    unbounded unmindful at last
    singing paean as visions slip away
until what is not is not
