The Lingering Concerns

some books open up
and show their pages
like tongues
and you watch them
as you begin
to salivate like a
mad dog,
there is nothing new in
there
except the ears and the
words that dissolve too
in a distance
those that you like to go
back again
and grapple with
or perhaps even embrace
and shed tears again

The Little Bird That Was Eaten By The Hungry Cat

it is alright now
you feel freedom too
in such a very
short,
delicate moment
setting a little bird
free
from the hold of your
hands

it is hopping still
unable to fly and from such short distance
between you
and it
you see this hungry cat
snapping it
from the grass
taking its lifeless body
towards
the alley

you regret
you have miscalculated the
need for freedom

by analogy
you have miscalculated
you

The Little Black Bird And The Wooden Railing

it is a black bird with a shade of red
on its upper wing
that perches on the wooden beam
cracking under the sun
last summer

below the beam are the tall reeds
i forget whether it was the black bird
or the tall reeds
which was singing

but i am sure i heard a song
so sad like a dying note from the throat
of a mad man.

The Little Black Bird: A Poem For The Other Woman

the little black bird
goes home in a cave
just below her belly
between
her legs

it sings about love
that she always kills
for nothing

before midnight the
blackbird flies
seeking the warmth
of other blackbirds
it is cold and
dying
in her keeping

now she sings alone
like a blackbird
cursing
the trees and the flowers

she wants to disown the
blackbird
in exchange for the
earthworm

she likes it that way
wriggling
without any feet at all
pointed and
penetrating

the curse continues
it can never be hers
and the blackbird
keeps coming back
mocking her like
an old man
