Three Poems

dust bowl

fell in love with your science
 poetry of noise
 wise owl muse
  wooed with a promise
edged with pain
despite visits to the dark
felt touch
followed through the wall
the demons shouted louder
laid to the alter
splattered on your wall
lost in past gone

see me as i stare
into nothing

emptiness becomes you
don’t walk away backwards
that will no longer do
see me as i stare into the
nothingness
of
you

grey sky
blue moon

dust bowl



She no obey

woman go slow
shimmy and sway

she know joy come of pain
woman big laugh
she know sorrow
woman got sass
mystery
and
somethin borrowed
got a whole lotta old
so
strut queen
voice like symphony
she
talk
you
lissen

hear

thunder

she be born new
so
jump
back
 lightnin and rain

nothing but woman dew

she got honor
she no obey
she got
a bouquet of roses

gonna toss back
yo way

woman go slow
shimmy and sway
