Best Poem of r james sterzinger

I Wanna Touch God

i wanna
touch god
where he lives
if it's silence
or vibration.

i wanna reach
out to see
if he is real.
like when you
skin a knee
or break a beer
bottle on the side
walk and hear it
smash.

i wanna smell god
like the sun when it's
hot and yellow.

i wanna see god
like emptiness.
that rainbow moment
when something means something:
when the east is pitchblack
and the western sky
is just right.
yeah!
like a rainbow.

i wanna touch god
feel him
like bactine in
a cut.
i wanna feel him, ...

Parallel (For Karen)

Because we were parallel,
We had spent days
Together. Holding hands
And giggles.

Because we were
Parallel, we swam
In the river, did things
That scared the fishes.

[Hata Bildir]
