I am the Woods

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 31, 2009 by dc

I am the woods,
The light that dances
Through trees,
The leaves hunting for sun,

The rustle of birds
On the branches,
The bushes that quiver
Surrounded by flies,

A promise I made
To love you forever,
A molehill on a mountainside,
A dalliance with the rain.

Her Beauty Perplexed

Her beauty perplexed,
Like heavy hale in July
Or top hats half perched,

A smile chapped with rust,
Distant eyes like two bike wheels
Vanishing downhill,

She waved like
A curse half disguised.

On Fire

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 1, 2009 by dc

These are empty schemes
Skies awash with promises
Lies from leather tongues,

I keep an eye out
For rainclouds and changing tides
Trollies in canals,

Strangers sit amused
Hairy sneers and deja vu
The future on fire.
