Blood in Your Heart


Has life ever clenched you by the chest

and forced you to see the rest

of the details?

Has a moment ever summed up your

whole Existence? If you were put

on the spot and the Giant Ear of the World

was listening,

could you speak smooth

like butter?

Or would you shutter

at the responsibility

and babble,

dabble,

rabble,

and stutter,

...and not know what to utter?

Is the Blood in your Heart

and the Mist on your Soul

worth

pouring out over the Earth

from South to North Pole?

Or, is it only worthy

of being spilled

in some gutter?

am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
