Maybe Tomorrow

you ask for today
i do not have
today, maybe tomorrow

i may have tomorrow
inside my hands
wait for another day
or another week
or another year

maybe tomorrow
maybe

i cannot give you today
what i have is this past
that you cannot accept
and i cannot offer you today
because i cannot afford
it.......

today i am nothing
but tomorrow, if you can
wait, i may have tomorrow

whole and full
inside my hands, yes, yes,
tomorrow,

i have lots of these tomorrows
my dreams
my hopes
inside the basket of my hands
clasped by the gentle cups
of my heart

wait, please wait, do not die yet
we still have tomorrow

that is all we have
a bunch of tomorrows
sweet sweet tomorrows

dreams, hopes, wishes

Mayet On Cita

Cita is as yellow as squash
or egg yolk spattered
in the kitchen floor

as thin as a stick of the broom
and bald
the usual falling hair
and wry smiles

AND
Mayet looks at her with
so much pity

Two months more to go
the suffering will soon end
perhaps
on the scourge
of pancreatic cancer

All organs fail
Mayet looks frail
Searching for the Holy Grail

Who's next to understand the pain?
Who's willing to stop the rain?

Me

at the moment when i put my head
on my left hand
my left cheek on my left palm
feeling the warmth
of myself to myself
i may say without shame that
here i am again
thinking of you

my mustache is untrimmed
i have not shaved for day
my hair needs a cut badly
i smell i stink like a skunk
my coat has dust and dirt
my underwear has not been
changed
my undershirt has dried sweat

i feel so low these days
i have this discomfort of my soul
this pierce of the pins of my conscience
the furies are attacking me
day and night
with the possible weight of disgrace
and ripping grips of my regrets
perhaps because to you i have always
lied.

Me & U

me and U
WE write poems together
i read yours
and you read mine
hopefully to refine
this craft of mine

me and U
WE need to sip coffee together
on an early morning
and read another poem

me and U
ALONG the shores of sorrow
walking hand in hand
bringing with us
the purity of our intentions

me and U
WE ARE but offerings
me an incense
u the myrrh
or both of us gold together
before that manger

me and U
FRIENDS forever
rowing in a boat
on the river
singing a song
under the stars.
