Mandolyn ...


if the sun blows up, come find me


the temperature rises
around me, like the soul of Summer
that swings from tree to tree-
a quiet forest
you kept tucked inside your palm
until i peeked
and swooned like it was 1893-

you handed me a fire,
i blew the flame to watch it dance
felt the glow of your eyes
following me in every room-

sackcloth dreams, i wrapped around me
a hundred miles or more
towards piney paths and pastures
i touch with made up memory-

now peaches fall to the ground
and are picked up
by your sturdy, hustling hands
i ache to grasp
and hold for hours-

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
