Such Great Heights
if our hearts
are shaped like trees
with endless flowing roots.
can we let them tangle.
together deep in the
and if our eyes
are rippled like the surface
of the ocean
can they be the gentle
tide that carries
me back to you?

I remember all those old numbers
and names of people now forgotten
You squeeze the last of the orange into your glass
and reach for grapefruit
the bitter taste reminds you
of me

Silence and the Hands
These human hands are bony, wicked things,
The tools which bring to life an idle thought
And silence heaven's birds which long to sing.
Spider digits of rich men and kings
Will bend and crawl toward the items sought.
Their human hands are bony, wicked things.
Old man lying on his deathbed clings
To memories his filthy gold has bought.
He silences the birds which long to sing.
A bird with lovely, complex, feathered wings
Has never been corrupted, changed or taught.
Only human hands are wicked things.
Sun whose regal march the darkness brings
Takes no sight of pretty things we've wrought,
But neither hears the bird which longs to sing.
We guard our brutal toys with cloth and strings
And jealousy which only comes to naught,
For human hands are bony, wicked things
Which silence heaven's birds that long to sing.

conveyance of nuance
would the perfect poem invoke
visions, sounds and feelings
to transcend one less majestic?
if it did not,
would it truly be superior?
or is it simply ours
to calculate some sweet spot,
entwining timeliness with worthiness?
"i think that i shall never see a poem lovely as a tree..."
"...put out my hand, to touch the face of God"
"no man is an island, entire of itself..."
is each perfect, or just supremely worthy?
and perhaps timely?
each says what it is meant to say;
is that not all the perfection we need?
build your best reasoning machine;
give it all the most poetic terms;
program it with the phrasing of a master;
it should still fail to touch the heart
as well as even i -
as well as even i!
fine poets might eulogize its suicide,
and put aside this dreaming of perfection.
