I no longer write / long poems
Je peux pus / écrire au long

Je redouble d’intensité / je vis
I intensify / I live / I see

the open field / of my dreams
le champ s’ouvre / je rêve

de thé / et d’eau fraiche
tea flows / as fresh as water

I run / to this poem’s fall
toute bonne chute / a une fin

la mienne n’est pas / écrite
so many ends / left to write

ciel_sale

PIS UN AUTRE

mon coeur s’emballe / pour moi
and then my heart / unwraps itself

ciel_propre

PIS UN DERNIER

I thought the clouds / would fit
Suis-je trop / pour les nuages

Her heart on the brink of
exploding concrete
she wanted to fight through
the woman in her
the bramble on her
but she counted her colours
as blessings instead.

White
her knuckles as she ruffled
depleted bones
and their crushed leaves.

Brown
a lock catching her wild eye
her least favourite colour
her own hues.

Yellow
her envy of bright gold
bullions in her pockets
to ground her in oolong leaves.

Red
the heart of the problem
sowing too many beats
around the saddened bush.

Purple
her head blossoming
in all different directions
violet – was she dancing.

Black
her sleep so tight and dear
a grip of delusions and falls
on top of her world.

And back to white
morning light that saw her temple
shining through her bark
who was she now

who was she not
risen from a day of painful strokes
on her inside skin
and left gazing at another reflection
of her own tortured being
on the sky’s infinite
openness?

Here is a post inspired by Tracey Grumbach‘s picture below, for tonight’s dVerse Poets Pub. Enjoy, and have a good Saturday evening.

On this tweaky hour
although we had hands pointing at
various skies we
couldn’t find the middle of
things.

Away for twelve hours
already we had killed two birds with
various stones we
couldn’t help leaving one in lieu of
goosebumps.

We avoided rush hour
all the way we rushed to get where
various angles were softened
we found skies of dots and lines
birds.

Oh all that’s ours
always leaves fleeting out
various trajectories we
can’t help seeing circles
ends.
