And Affectation Likes a Fine Dress

And affectation likes a fine dress
Bought from right out the shops window front
And does never care one whit for fit
For the vanity which will occupy the brunt
And does there smiling crookedly, sit
And not for all worldly tears, ever confess..
Patti Masterman



My father was an orphan

My father was an orphan,
And so I was an orphan;
My father never knew his fathers name,
And so I never knew my fathers name.

My father lost his mother young,
And I also lost my mother young;
My life followed every curve of his,
And I could imagine, his battle to live.

His childhood was diffused in me,
Percolating down, his song of being-
But cells talk to cells, closer than breath,
And life learns life- in spite of death.


I was adopted at three days of age,
by my parents, who knew my birth mother,
and it was an arranged adoption- sort of
like an arranged marriage; and I consider
myself quite lucky how it all worked out.
Patti Masterman



A House Breathes Through Its Bones

A house breathes through its bones,
Its summits sit like sentries;
Though rafters decompose-
It never denies entry.

Its ghosts lie in their beds,
Soft earth beneath their memory;
The shutters firmly closed-
The past seen only dimly.
Patti Masterman



All things move in a circular motion

The lathe of heaven's spinning, spinning;
Now the web of time beginning,
Time the holder of the many secrets
We must someday learn;
Time the hearth where lie the days
The universe will slowly burn.

Life springs up; it's breathing, breathing
And the web of life is weaving,
Life revolves through many stages
And no one foretells the whole;
Life, the mold in which we pour
The essence, turns into the soul.
Patti Masterman
