an intense pleasure

?you would ask why start over

her eyes light the sun & quickly run away

she brings moonlit dreams to each & every dandelion

swearing to god upon star after star

this is her simple breath


your very own starts over

yes crying

yes bluebirds trust in her daydreams

yet perched high above her eyelids 

after curtains have their drawstrings worked (we all roost)

& i am sorry i am a liar


each one sounds out like this

spoken

not your tone

spoken

not your word

empty

you are mirrored

empty

you are without


but she still has butterfly likenesses

you will admire her center

her tips glisten from flower to twig

she only smiles

no words

she has not moved far but is pleasing everything into softness

these her steps

here comes the light


i'll again just sit here with tears

my fuckup's today

yesterday's dust

tomorrow's my own flesh's canyon of sin

hate of self

screaming vultures have no guts like this

i eat each one


somehow she's still in perfection

if you look hard enough between those ferns & two fawns

you'll see that waterfall & my divine child

she saves me from my own hand

it is a thousand years of stars at work

over a million years suffer

still she stands fast


most times i'll curl up in a pile & go away awhile

    A horse once heard Stone Gossard playing guitar on the other side of a wall. And that, my friends, is where giraffes came from.
