There Is A Poem (Senryu)

There is a poem
inside the heart of mankind
waiting to be born.


(Previously published in Poems Md, Apr 2008)

  138.     

Throwing Away The Key

Strip away your relationships
One by one
Friend by friend by friend
By lover by parent by child
Until all that is left
Is a broken soul
Alone.

Then, when you understand
And only then
Equipped with the necessary wisdom
Are you at any kind of liberty
To judge
The desperate actions
Of another.


(Previously published in Webstatic, Sept.1999; Zinos.com, July 2000)

  139.     

Trapped

the cage is locked
from within
a trap set by unknowing hands
you bleed
through pores of disgruntled flesh
flailing
for reason to find the stolen key
hidden in some dark socket
of a primitive skull
and hope
like a feather
drifts
upon the improvident air
lightly brushing the iron shackles
and floating
like a question
just barely out of reach...


(Previously published in L'Intrigue, Aug 1999; Poetry and Art, Feb 2001)

  140.     

Unplugged

To be disconnected
Pulled from the wall of
Family relationship
Unable to fire electrons
Up and down thin
Conductors, no grounding

For a live wire

Spinning out of control
Lethal shock
Without warning
Unclaimed bodies
To litter a house
Built on unreasonable

Expectation.
