  169.     

lost father...

he was once a priest here
having a disagreement with the bishop
he went on board
took time to rehearse life in Florida
took some time riding moments in San Francisco
onward Chicago
moving East and then West
and landed a job
loading Goods,

in his sixty
he posed half nude in a picture
taken by his
part time girlfriend
no commitment he said
because life
is one flitting moment
unable to
stay at a fixed point

he posted the pic
in facebook

i guess, and this is my opinion
i looks
pitiful.

  170.     

Wilson and Broadway at 4 a.m.

Chicago

Sunday evening. Drunk
and strolling home.

On the way an hour now,
block after block,

bar to bar.
Weekend's gone,

Monday's turning.
Along the way

his swollen fingers find
parking meter posts

are an endless xylophone.
Plunked, they play

the anthem
of a life misspent.

  171.     

Midnight Anthem

Chicago

Sunday evening. Drunk
and strolling home.

Roscoe's on his way,
block by block,

whistling as he goes
despite the lurching.

Weekend's gone,
Monday's turning.

Along the way
his fingers find

parking meter posts
are an endless xylophone

that only he can play
for all the world to hear

the midnight anthem
of a life misspent.

  172.     

Jazz Trees

Jazz trees sway by the river
Miles sweet horn blows desire
Desire to know you
Desire to return home

I await the breeze of freedom
Barefoot on a golden beach
You are like seagulls
You make me feel every note
Red toe nail polish
Coltrane and eagles
Slow wet days
I have known you forever
We are ruled by your pheromones
Gardens of a king size bed
I get your coffee in the morning
Sketches of Rembrandt
Trains in the mountains

Leave your fears I am here
Chicago suburbs
You lay like a Queen
Art and books
Black and white photography
Garter belts soaked
Goddess with the bathroom door open
Six inch high heels
Sex so deep it hurts
Slow melted psyche

Jazz trees sway
