  11601.     

Questions......

lady, (lady in black
gown, black hat, and
hand-gloves)

why do you want your
coffee black?

why do you always want
bitterness?

why always alone
sitting on a chair facing the sea
and drinking the salt of
the breeze
with your black coffee?

why sip bitterness
when
to my mind, coffee would be
better with cream
and honey

with someone beside you
facing the sea and
savoring the salt of the sea
with that black coffee of yours?

lady, why mourn
when joy is just around the bend?

why can't we be alone
together?

  11602.     

Questions?

i am tired of questions
all of them
too familiar and all
with ready
homemade answers

canned questions
and answers
in one book
scanned for years
and you all know them

canned laughter
canned faces

canned souls
canned and caned and chained
bones

they rattle and they shake
and roll

i have no answers.
i am throwing all these questions away.

i live everyday. i look at the trees
and the forests.

i simply live. Now.
i have no more questions.

neither will i demand
any answer from you.

go, go, find yourself.
i stay here wanting to find nothing at all.

i guess, after my 48 years
there is this truth
that i find: there is nothing

nothing to find
nothing to expect

nowhere to go
it is just this and this and this.

the one that i have in my hand
the one that i keep on holding
i enclose it and keep it warm
and alive

and you do not even care
this is it: me, myself, and I

  11603.     

Quibble

Write about love
The greatness the loveliness the thirst the anticipation
Of love
The night of waiting for love the dawn consumed to writing
About love the joy the ecstasy of the lines in between
You, my poet so well engrossed

Here I am pretending sleep; it is you that I miss,
Dreaming that I am waiting about your kiss

  11604.     

Quickly

quickly they did it
under the shady
tree and nimbly
they left

in a hurry they forget
they rush
to a flat edge and fall away
like broken glasses
from the tiled sink

now they want to remember
but there is
nothing more left
everything rushed
to the wind
of the oblivious.
