That Fantasy

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 26, 2012 by dc

Come take my hand,

I’ll soon be the sand that
Blows near the ocean
But never settles down,

A sound like a whisper
Born from a dead tongue,

A finished elixir,
A temporary fixture,
A song partly sung,

And the fun
Of a gun
That’s never shot


To Love

Dawn’s tickled birdsong
A dew fresh hallelujah
Alive in your eyes

Toying With Hatred

Posted in Poetry with tags , , , , , , , , on February 12, 2012 by dc

They pickled us in vinegar,

Tart words spat across main roads,

The punch of running scuffles,

TV violence daydreams
And the glorifications.

In time

We learned to sit on benches
And take it,
All pastel lipped,

Toying with hatred.

Then one day we awoke in unison

Wet as dew,

A shimmering new,

All camaraderie and truth,

And ready,

This will not be
The can’t
Or the won’t,

We thought,

We have swollen our hearts
And we’re ready for battle.
