Poem I Wrote From Way Back

15 Aug



Because you have been so kind,
you have ruined me.

You have left me sitting, with a fool’s smile,
In the detritus of our delightful disappointments
Diligently assembling the latest set
of minor miracles
Trying to persevere
on the other side of the terrible mirror.

Lately it has been raining for a long time.
It is like crying. You get your feet wet.
And then there is all this mud.

Heavy duty.

But, the sun comes out at times,
The rain falls off my shoes,
the wind blows it away,
and you are not gone, only missing.

All of this later, all over,
Breaking things to bits, right and left.
It must be spring!
or at least some sort of cracking.

It must mean something, all of this disarray.

I should be able to find it handy.
Broken pieces, more spare parts.
Clastic debris
Grist to the mill.

Useful stuff.
