  397.     

Conversation with a D.A.

He was a very civil man careful to give thanks
For a well brewed cup of coffee.
We talked about a world not so civil and
levels of battery recognized in law.
We talked about education and the brutality of excellence.
We talked about hunting hogs and their quality as sausage.
This man with the shirt that declared an identity
Was good company even before breakfast and good conversation.

Conversation with a District Attorney

He was a very civil man careful to give thanks
For a well brewed cup of coffee.
We talked about a world not so civil and
levels of battery recognized in law.
We talked about education and the brutality of excellence.
We talked about hunting hogs and their quality as sausage.
This man with the shirt that declared an identity
Was good company even before breakfast and good conversation.

Conversion

It occurred to me while loading pills
How much life had changed from days of youth
When loading would have meant a magazine
With which to harry crow or fox.

One spring break was memorable
Twenty three wood chucks were taken with varying forms of guile
I can not even imagine such carnage being recreation now
For one who delights in close proximity of deer.

Too much of anger, fear and youth has passed
With a vision of place upon a different planet
Than when hope was standing in the center of the whirl.
The innocence too is gone,
When the word 'survival' was something only for artic explorers
And others too fool hardy to imagine.

Conversion on the Trail

The glass that throws colors
Pink, blue, green, orange, red
With a power greater than florescence
Charms me most in darkness
In bright sun has almost no power
To even lightly charm this soul.

My daughter would be distraught,
That ownership rights being both emphasized
and honored in our clan,
She was not even consulted
In her father's appropriation
Of a toy converted into beer glass.

In the darkness of the world -
(Those who rebel against it
Or at least in the word of Bergman's squire - 'protest')
A few may find an allegory here -
My form almost certainly not charming enough for poetry's sphere.

Despite the bashing
Given by those who do not understand
The issue comes to 'son' and 'sun.'
Jesus has light to give in our darkness
A truth transcending even the transparency of saints.

Trophies have great power that the hymn writer understands.
Car, house, title, wife - can serve as well as anything on any mantel.
For some having little else they become the idols of worship.
The world is a hungry place,
Jesus can not change this, but perhaps the issue is:
If we take his blue print seriously
This makes it much more difficult and likely
That we will not eat each other.
