Let's Jive Midway

I'll bring you flowers
I suppose
a bottle
or two
and deadly black from Nepal

Let's jive midway
or if you're resting
don't fret
I'll get to you
hammer on your door
sleep on your doorstep
if you're dreaming

Come on, hun
shake it out
I've got to get into this
before the machine
make a mess of your bed

The Cool Indescribable

A break of continuity first thing
cold and sunny blue
bird wings crack icy air
throws the ragged poet dreams

I love the warmth of Eden
our quiet days in Clichy
but patterns register
spit out frames from the loop
never the whole story
