A 17th Century Curse

In the bottle rests my pee
Collected under a darkling moon
And pared down fingernails, overgrown

Some bits of hair and rusty nails
Brass tacks, and a leather pierced
By a nail, which bent at odd angle

Upside down in hidden grave, it lies
So on the evil doer, it rebounds
Until that she, herself, soon die

* * * * * * * * * * * * * *

For those afraid a witch may have cast a spell upon them.
If all goes well, the trick will cast the spell back on the witch,
perhaps killing her — or so goes a 17th century witchcraft belief.
Patti Masterman



If I Were a Princess and You Were a Knight

Come rescue me from the castle
I'm chained to the highest spire;
A dragon guards the trestle;
Cruel vines crawl up the brier.

There's three things that you need,
To spring me from the tower:
First you'll need to bleed,
To make the cruel vine flower.

Then you'll need a magic draught,
To make the dragon snore-
And as soon as he wakes not,
Open the drawbridge door.

And then, of course, a single kiss:
To break the enchantment's spell,
Then, wrapped so tightly in your arms;
Thus happily ends my tale.
Patti Masterman



Lighting the Way

Tentative, new poets are so shy-
Begging for tolerance, patience-
“I am just a minor poet, a sometimes poet,
A writers writer- don’t mind me none.”
But the truth is we are shining meteors
In the atmospheric outer spaces;
Far from our home galaxy,
We are the art nouveau, the avante-garde,
Amino-acid delivering asteroids
Continuously streaming effusions,
Our broadcast verbiage making it’s way
To all the lesser worlds
With the sheer voluminous forcefield of our creations,
We enlighten the dark corners,
The gas giants, the tiny frozen-rock worlds.
We bring truth to light, rediscover things,
Point out hope where none could be seen-
So that when new life does occur;
It has a ready mold of intelligence, a self-absorbing
Centripetal motion to get it started right:
New human-like beings will draw more animals on cave walls,
Adorn themselves earlier,
Seek for first cause more intently,
Learn language more effortlessly.
All because of the photons we sent ahead of us
To colonize the universe.
Don’t be intimidated by the heavy weight of responsibility:
You are doing just fine.
Patti Masterman



Some Ruff Conversation

I went for a walk in the meadow
And spied an old dog in the hay;
Now old dogs know old tricks much better-
And none is so tricky, as they.

I walked close, to peek at him sleeping
But nary a word would I say;
Cause when old dogs are sleeping dogs, dreaming-
Well it's better to let sleeping dogs lay.

I left him un-bothered and sleeping,
I left him passed out in the hay,
And went on my way, till the night time-
And hope every dog had his own day.

And should every day have it's own dog,
In this dog-eat-dog world where we be,
Just remember who lies down with dogs
Is bound to get back up with fleas.
Patti Masterman
