Counting Lovers

Cheese occurs at night,
Counting lovers, Gerald

Jason,
Daniel,

Some guy at the Holiday Inn,

Leonard,
Han,

Rolf,
Keshavjii,

Simon,

Like that, they
Say a healthy lifetime has ten to twenty,

Lovers.

Said the Joker to the Thief

Don’t make fun of the flower arranger, Ikebana
Is self – discipline, a

Nip here, a
Snip there, and

With fullness of time, and
Passage through life,

Done with the flash of a scissor;

Bone handles,
Glinting.

Scissor flash snip, all gone
Extra weight, things un-needed, flash

Unheeded,
If you stop to think about it,

You will frighten yourself cold,
Frosty, frigid, cold lock-down, too afraid

To make a wrong move, stop –

Don’t laugh at the flower arranger, Ikebana
Is worth learning;

Moving through life with less.

We don’t dance anymore

older-black-couple-discussing-

 

We don’t dance anymore,
And it happened so quickly.

We sold our souls on the galactic market,
For peanuts.

The Earth recovered though, its
Nature.

We sold everything to be together,
We did, and

Life happened.

This far down the line, we’re all that’s left and
You still are,

The most beautiful thing about me.

The tyranny of age

short poetry, age, end, death, review, purpose, doubt

When you are born,
You know that you are,

Here to change the world,
And it is good,

And it’s alright,
To do your best.

Then,

You are checking the curtains,
Just in case,

You run out of sunshine.
