Weathering Window, a Poem

Updated on December 26, 2012

Unstaved hoops

How rain falls gentle down the jaw,

no longer narcissus and wild rose

cast slim daggars or desire

but the elephant in the room

no one can explain.

Merrick on display.

pearl-handled derringer

rings of those insects

as big as plates that

roam the Fincas at night

waiting for the head

painted with molassas

opinions, roll off unstaved hoops

a mine field in the descent

of truth.

Demeter, be quick as the moon,

roll dismay right and left,

Claudius, ride your horse...

now a night hag, unhinged.

Rise up, tide, to the barely breathing,

trick some to live,

trick some to die.

Moribus.

the dead salute you.
