ubterranean Blue Poetry "for those subterranean blues"
"Tide Pool: On the Waterfront: Marlon Brando for Christmas"
Art/Photo by Pat Tompkins
"Tide pool, sea balm, blue seashells in rain,
watch the ocean, watch the rain, "everyone
answers to someone, answers to the rain" . . .
past winter tree
sunlight . . .
heaven for small miracles
magic like that
jewelry shang bit
the life cycle of diamonds
and something in girl song
and gin coloured robots
and southwest Anaheim
jus and candy rain . . .
their own euphoria
and we wear
the dresses of the damned
dance in the silences of winter
remembering the moon
and the silence rains down
the night travels
some blue night
in the night
I watch the rain
I watch the sea
awake the dragon
stirs the blue
the next thought
in the woods
calls down the moon
claims the moonlight
a pearl earring
from his wife's treasure box
something you get used to
it is February
into kind . . .
the glass cloche
forces the flower
the glass sweats
in the sunlight
in the winter days
the glass bell jar
the inside of the road
the whole earth, blue
and the island caves
carved by the
with no ceilings
and the rain
soaks our skin
as we lay
answers to the rain
the last imprints
(rain on bare skin)
desire is a hard beg
to say no
the geography of no
to have your dress removed
the white veil
from your eyes
it is hard
to stay alive
drugs and Christmas presents
in the underground tunnels
i lay down
hope for sleep
heat and light sparks
across her throat
down . . .
strawberries and honey
across the moon
in the morning"
