THE REAL STRAND

It will take a miracle for me to accept

That all we float between us

Is a tiny globe, complete with mini-countries

Diminutive oceans, and fierce border disputes.

We share our responsibility like sharks share chum.

My hand, your ear, my nose, your gaze, my wish,

Your dream, my sight, your pain.

We don't do this well, this planet lording.  Perhaps,

if we were beings in other skins,

we would find the little thread that really binds us

and realize how much blood it has soaked up.

I AM THE HEIGHT OF TIES

That photo, you know which one,

Me centered, clasped by your arm

June heat, but we all grin.

BERRIES AND CHEESE

Believe the farmer

Knock box, crate, carton

The vine morsels, pluckable to a fault

I never like seeds, you say

Our heavens pucker, angels frown

Offer keffir in a spoon with jewels atop.

You turn down immortality so well.



SING

We've played it too many times

And never do it.

We've saved it too many times

And never woo it.

We'll be old and bent over canes

Before the essence of those sweet refrains

Dissolves in empty placemat stains.

And how, and how, and how...
