Two Poems that are One

Updated on August 26, 2012

Monday from Above


Out of the air come wafts of a desperate reality


Teetering on the brink of our specialty


We humans are the silliest creatures to date


From being stood-up by those who hate


Now and then our doors of perception


Are relegated to hounds of election


When there’s so much more to a rose


Than a thorn and a blossom to open and close


She is a symbol of complexity


Of which no one can lash to a mast at sea


And knowing this our hearts thump like an apple


Kissing the ground near one who was baffled


By the laws set by you and me


When to be so selfish could pit you eternally


In a land of which gods toss you to the fish


Who wants to be a breakfast dish?


When the study of all dipped your Achilles’ heel—


Helen won the darts of how Paris feels—


Leaving our names to remember forever


Because there’s only one cadre and we’re in it together


Humble your minds and grab at the candy


Life throws at you, pick a road and bandy


With your neighbors—determine the ones who lost


The way to Byzantium, for there is a cost


For the ones who reject love—the other side a mistake


We can remedy in time, face the bellyaches


Understand no person could Shepard us all


But if you believe hard enough, Love’s long and tall


Whoever is your God, wherever you may be


‘We’re forever one,’” says more than she and he.

In Loving Augury of Myrtle Jones


-Anonymous





When Judas fell like a stone in still water


He took the shape of what we not ought our


Children to know, except when it’s time to share


Our love invisible—if we dare


Because He sees through sea, sand, and, stone


And it’s not right to be alone


Against what Jesus gave himself up unto—


We’re the ones he dropped bread crumbs to


For us to share, and to learn, and give back


The knowledge of the tree guarded by a cat


We ones who believe that it’s not only a cross to bare


But the sun has an equally driven stare


His brother’s the stars and the moon his child—


She’s the answer if you believe much too wild


For animals are created on every single day


And if we find we’re ones too we cannot say


Or the Lord humbles thee with a hot pursuit


Of unimaginable minds taboot, taboot


Up the hills and down our backs


Water—the purest—marks our tracks


And we’ll keep running if required to the beginning of ends


While our vibrations of life secure and mend


The rifts of any soul who has lost their way


We’ll find you child, nap in the hay


And wake to a morning almost too bright to see


There is no cost, there is no fee


But know that it’s admirable to look back and remember


That stormy day last September


When you were tete a tete with the Dark Lord


And he asked you your name when you were bored


And you listened as He spoke into your ears


The sin that’s not right, and it’s right to fear


The comings and goings of our neighbors and citizens


Who choose the easy because the crooked mend


Exactly what the crooked intend


To capture you heart, mind and soul—


The snake stole, and, stole, and stole


Adam and Eve’s glorious appeal


And struck a most egregious deal


So don’t trust—damn it—for trust’s sake


Because love’s out there on the make


To steer your rudder in eventual circles


If you dart like a rabbit or run like a turtle


There’s no finish, wonder the fertile


Because everything is alive and One with you, Myrtle.





-Mike Head (8/9/12)
