Still Writing


poet asks me, yesterday,
if I still write poetry?

is this poetry...if it is,
I don't know...

cause I started doing photos,

anything that is a record - I suppose...

I used to love cassettes,
recording my voice,
saying things out loud,

or wanted to keep some part
of me, that once existed,

I imagine that words once
served me better, than now,

you are too bitter, said the coach,

maybe?

inside out, even back to front,
like meaning got twisted around me,
a suit of word thorns,

try and live out, what it is you wanted
to say,

I get it!

I see what it is to become things,

black as coal, shinier than a precious gem,

gagged in the frozen drama of everyday time,

I live ahead of every action,
carry out what it is I need to do,

and avoid others, postpone my own demise...

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
