  169.     

six thirty nine in the morning

it is raining
but the way the things are going
this morning seems to be so soft and gentle
tiny needles of rain like some snowflakes
in my mind

i have not been to chicago or to new jersey
or to any place where there is snow
where the coldness perhaps
strikes at the core of the heart

where my loneliness
though how far taken to make it
disappear like a car running to the farthest road
and like a dot dissolving in the horizon

shall not perish
not even diminish like a number five
subtracted from four

it is cold even when the sun starts to shine
simply because
you are not here with me

caregiver leaving again

The children of Punta
Sing you a sad song
We hear the whirring
Sounds of dragonfly wings
Then the plane flies you
To Chicago
As you make
Many flying kisses

  171.     

you were born bad Charlotte! you were born bad! and you will die bad!

the sun sets in the east
with it goes the warm embrace of love
the night brings no stars
most chicago nights seldom do

give me your word
before this windy city takes it
i long for my summer nights
a lovers embrace

but spring in this city holds no friend at all
the snow still comes
even with the sun staying up long

where is your summer
bring me your heat
i give you my heart

you hand me a receipt

  172.     

Battle of the Glassblowers

The battle of the glassblowers in Kalamazoo
Sitting with anticipation in an old church pew
Gaffers from as far as Chicago and Detroit
To show of their talent, and some glass to exploit
Making things they normally, never would do
A chicken, an elephant, and a spider web too
Laughing and joking, making things out of glass
All with a time limit. They’ve got to move fast!
Not everything made it… that is just life
All glassblowers know it, and except that strife
