Death and Commas

.

.

“Poets are

interested primarily

in death and commas. ”

.

~ Carolyn Kizer

.

.

Elfje:

.

commas

colon, period

grouping words grammatically

sentences, clauses and phrases

punctuation

.

Haiku:

.

all things diappear

returning to Mother Earth

food  for the future

.

Poem:

.

life and ampersand

.

in conjunction , &, but, if
immortalized in a glyph
science defines the living
with just a few links missing

poetry fills in the voids
using words that were Freud’s
ego, superego and id
excluding those living off of the grid

you’re OK, I’m OK
a few civil laws to obey
creating more than death and commas
dreaming of living in the Bahamas

a poem a day keeps the doctor away
keeps the mind from turning gray
smile, life is not all commas and dramas
think cozy, snug in your warm pajamas

it’s always time to enjoy a conjunction
happiness is basking in the realm of dysfunction
and, if, maybe; always get in the last word
but, don’t ever forget that bloomin’ password

poetry is not all death and commas
poetry is paying tribute to our Momma’s

Into The Abyss

.

.

“He drove his mind

into the abyss

where poetry

is written.”

.

― George Orwell

.

.

.

Elfje:

.

mind

over matter

seeing is believing

illusions and skulduggery abound

mysticism

.

Haiku

.

rivers to oceans

water the essence of life

naming the seasons

.

Poem:

.

memories lost, memories rekindled
long timers share their stories from hell
their old faces scarred and wrinkled
of wedded bliss and good times they tell

moments of heroic courage and valor
fox hole prayers hoping to survive
the countries flag their favorite color
what the world was like in forty-five

the troops their  mighty numbers dwindl
some battles only remembered on library pages
their step and cadence no longer nimble
their cause and effort are one for the ages

how soon the next generation conveniently forgets
self consumed by their technological advances
will they eventually suffer agonizing regrets
indifference slowly diminishes their chances

the ego, the super ego, the id, debated
why does man want to destroy humanity
mementos and thoughts of the past desecrated
what will ever end this absurd insanity

don’t be the lemming, be the voice
when the swamp becomes putrid, pull the plug
hope and faith that there will be a time to rejoice
when all men will be greeted by a loving hug

history is know to repeat
can the cycle be broken
will Satan suffer defeat
can peace be the only language spoken

only time will tell
