I am Shamed. I am Drunk.


Like a shadow birthed
From dawn-light's approach.
I hide between the pink and red
Of pollution's grandeur.
And listen to the morning birds sing.

Ambiance to my lips stretching
Grand as Dali's face.

What is a muse?

When she hides sunlight
In blonde temptation.

Falsifying complication
To a pucker
And plump.

Along the river
Lilacs bloom,
But what value does a miracle have
That happens ever year?

I still stutter language
Like a drunk's footsteps.

Asking:
"What is sobriety? "

Ahhh
Such a gift to make a poet dumbfounded.

I had to be in-intoxicated
To put this sensation into verse.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
