". . . sunshine and some sad afternoon"
The Sun King
comrades at arms
all the cat hair in Phoenix
Paris before the war
sky blue, warm yellow and verdant green
they looked so happy
in the arcade
sweet Passover wine
my friend, my friend, i
("your breasts are fluttering birds")
a series of days
a certain rhythm
(shadows of a broken heart)
1,000 white plates pile up the wall
haphazard, one on top of another
the box caravan
love god of the Mycenae
a dearheart #
so sad the Argensia
(i kiss your lips sweetly)
it's a false face society
a good and honest day hospital
(red lilies in my underwear)
a series of 1,000's of days
morning to evening
evening to morning
at the monasterium
we dress in robes
no one talks
we leave written messages
to move through silence
move through seasons
anxious we awake
to see who has survived the winter
next and next
rain falling and falling
the gift of 1,000 years
of the colour blue
the colour of the sky
in a shoebox
we do healing prayers
through the walls
the blue season
"where angels fear to tread
under the hot Italian sun)
(i run my hands over all of him)
the way the day is still
ancient rites of Susskind
(you enter me like rain)
(and so Major Barbara
the munitions factory
so clean and white
the naked bodies
on the finely manicured lawn)
and pearly aces
o' the lily white hands
the blue hen
the blue cock
and sunny side eggs with buttered toast for dinner
the game of sorry
and a word from our sponsor
soldiers we march the carousel
sink into Mai Tai's
capture the sun
how bright the morning
in my eyes
you think you can hold onto
through your hands
through your hands
the night, the galaxies inside
burn your soul
how dark the time alone
from the kettle
how bright the day
Subterranean Blue Poetry Presents!
The New Age Renaissance Republic White Flag Manifesto
"we surrender . . . now give us what we want"
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
- from The New Colossus (inscribed on the Statue of Liberty) by Emma Lazarus
