  7597.     

let it be of record

that everything last year
was a struggle against
choking, that something
grips us and wants us all
dead and buried six feet
below our grounds but
let me say on record,
my dear, we have sur
vived on some surrogate
fears, love, this thing,
provided us all with all
the tools, and here we
are like moon-cats
grinning in this darkness
in darkness out, grrrr
it is pretty damn cold
inside and out. Grrr.

  7598.     

LET IT BE SAID....

Let it be said Jane
that i
have preferred silence
over
Adele's
songs of remorse,

that i have taken
distance
rather than
the intimacy

that i have chosen
pain
and embraced the coldness
of isolation

that i shall travel alone
and that i have
shut my ears
so that i can hear nothing
about what is being
said
about myself.

Let it be declared
that i do not care
about rising

that i have chosen
the dignity of
my fall

that i have triumphed
without
anybody's
knowing......

  7599.     

let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!

Siberia breathes its cold air
southward to the Pacific
down into our archipelago, and
so the nights are longer and the days are getting shorter
and it rains and rains and rains
seemingly without stopping and i am caught
shivering under the nipa roof inside the wooden house
facing a mountain through a window
a world drenched in water
wet season everywhere
mud and flooding rivers
buffaloes relaxing and white herons resting on their backs
between the drizzle
i sit and watch the beauty of the tropical countryside
the trees and hills and huts and houses
and horses and cows...

no snow, and not that harshly cold, this Eden
of the orient seas!

  7600.     

let me be

between David
and Goliath
between the slingshot
the stone
and the eyes

let me be
just a page of a book
telling the story
about
the distance between
defeat and triumph

let me just be the air
between the stone
and the slingshot

i have too much
already of this
indulgence
let me be
just a sigh before
Goliath's fall

let me just be the shout
after David's
unexpected victory

let me finally be the dust
blown by the wind
after the engagement
the duel
