  2309.     

We had snowflake symphonies

We had snowflake symphonies,
And foreplay arguments-
So long as we both shall live;
So long as we both shall live.

We had silverware tympanies,
In tiny apartments-
So long as we both shall live;
So long as we both shall live.

We argued every numbered day,
But we could never stay away-
So long as we both shall live;
So long as we both shall live.

We watched as love stretched out his wings,
We listened just to hear him sing-
For love, he's brought us every thing;
So long as we both shall live.

  2310.     

We have our being in the air

We have our being in the air;
When someone leaves
They're still there-
Though cells may vanish,
Voices quiet,
You still hear them late at night.

We still see them in our dreams,
Eyes are twinkling-
What it means?
Awakening, it seems they're gone
Into shadows-
Just at dawn.

To be eternal must be fine;
I won't ponder
What's divine;
If I loved while they were here,
That's what matters:
I won't fear.

  2311.     

We humans put faith

We humans put faith in clocks
And count place numbers;
In decimals, we trust
Our well measured slumbers.

There are no secrets
In an open source;
Register your complaints
Higher up, of course.

Time still flies
But we don't have fun:
Things are artless
In the setting sun
 
Patti Masterman
   
 

   
   
 

  2312.     

We Love a Mystery

We love a mystery-
The hard to get person,
The impossible to possess:
Makes you work, for every second of eye contact;
Any hint of camaraderie, is like the holy grail,
Now within our very sights.
How richly rewarded we feel then,
To get a moment of that attention, bestowed only upon us.
While we have scarcely any energy left over at all,
For even an eyebrow's lift
For our own fawning adorers; busy hanging on our every word,
Their self-sacrificial love for us like a contaminant,
That we just can't abide much more of.
And the fact that they would choose us, above all others
Just makes them that much more sketchy-
Who would choose us over anything?
For we know only too well, our own worth;
There are no mirrors left in our houses,
We go out daily, our hair sticking out,
Food stuck between our teeth, toilet paper tails following behind us-
Stop staring at us with all that seedy worship in your eyes;
It's like a stake being driven slowly through our lives.
 
Patti Masterman
