Red Angel

 

Jan 10

 

 

Your forever tomorrow came again not today

I am not surprised

I blink in slow motion and smile

Because I have nothing to lose, even less to prove.

 

Your jaded heart meets a brave one

Lovelorn and long away lochs

Of which you know nothing

And you again risk disappointment and derision.

 

Did your worship

Find a god of flaming tresses

Or is it another false prophet

You denied three times?

 

Is this is all there is,

This series of insipid misnomers, stupid misdemeanours and cupid near-misses?

Not that it matters or so you tell yourself.

And not that I care, but do you care to dance?

 

There were other pretenders to the throne

That abdicated before their coronation.

It was a rational inner-national disgrace and we stiffened upper lip to save face.

And now from the shadows comes creeping hope and slit-eyed caution.

                          

The past winters of discontent

Have killed the buds and blooms but have not hardened

The kernel of other possibilities that lay open

And yet again I stand at the door to let in all my tomorrows

All their cosmic nooks of infinite possibilities

And woe-begone slashed and dried sorrows.

If love be war and it is I do beseech.

Then truth is the first casualty…
