But Be

.

“A poem

should not

mean

But be.”

.

― Archibald MacLeish,

Collected Poems, 1917-1982

.

Elfje:      (Cinquain)

.

exist

must be

visable or tangible

not in the imagination

consist

.

Haiku:

.

happy larks warble

no concern for life or death

God is positive

.

Poem:

.

why me
am I am who I am
do I need a church key
does anyone give a damn

what does it mean to be free
will there be a final exam
is it more than the bird and the bee
was this world just a sham

can I just cop a plea
can I be as happy as a clam
scoring points on bended knee
why doesn’t everyone have to get with the plan

is there a God to play emcee
can my ego handle a grand slam
what really is my cup of tea
must I follow the flow diagram

too many questions,
never an answer
why not me
I’m just glad that I am

Forbidden To See

.

“For now,

poetry has the capacity –

in its own ways and

by its own means –

to remind us of something

we are forbidden to see.”

.

~ Adrienne Rich

.

Elfje: (Cinquain)

.

wax

bees knees

sweaty elbow grease

see your own reflection

polish

.

Haiku:

.

tropical storm floods

too many paved parking lots

nature always wins

.

Poem:

.

to my brother
from another mother
better than a best friend
dude like no other

together to the end
over backwards I would bend
always there in a pinch
a helping hand to lend

willing to give an inch
generous without a flinch
love it when you call me sonny
forever making my life a cinch

would you be my honey bunny
could you lend me some money
what do you mean  – – friend
I was just trying to be funny
