Still Life With Burros

A redundant whip in a whipped boy's hand
loudly cracks.

Sway backs are unburdened by little cries
which simpler crickets take to heart.

Their singing legs suddenly still to sighs.

Still Life With Coffee Can, Father, River, Bell, Mouse, Lover Fled

[poet's note to the reader:
read the 'x's' as the word
'times' as in multiplication]


This

just to
reintroduce some
levity

for we (loves)
were many day-ed

x merry

we merrily played
harming no one,
not even the
mouse unmoved

perhaps, watching
perhaps, still,
still, from beneath
the god you insisted
be excluded from
all our nakedness

x 1 too many breaths

exchanged, groped

x many ropes all our

wanting

I stand behind
them the curtained
dancer entranced
entered into/
upon a mystery
how one could
be so, well,
swell, so
marvelous &
so cruel upon
one silver stem
hangs the metal
tin top jags
tears at
memory edge
opens facts

now you, love
are new memory
hands emptier
sensitive finger-
tips filigreed
prints your
body hairs
sifted imprinted
touching softly
x all the x's
here accounted
for, listed,
besos as kisses
scribbles, notes,
letters,
no matter
the black or
blue tide

of thee
O lover

what
slips out
ebbs black
back into lapis

lapses into what
self is

uttered/poured,
scored trans-
parent upon
surfaces

faces which are
even eyes which
now glaze with
love/loss

beside the flue

glaze upon the
pane

black
mouse remains

stays,
is many,
a multitude
of petals

x 3

the jasmine
unspurned
at last

at last/least
O return
soft Junes
the lips of
which are
sometimes
pink, of
lavender
swollen, as if
to kiss

x memory

x 3

the antinomies

a string

of pearls

anemones

& thee O lover

bring all them

back, so many,

to me now

memory

torques

into soft

teas

June

steeps

turns

steaming

said window

(and torsos)

said prints

views obscured

of nothing

in particular

or special,

but

troubles,

troubles only

of passing birds

enamored-of

(their lighter
bones)

or

are they

cloud and shadow,

merely the steep

sun declining ashen

into New Jersey?

occluded

silhouettes

contrails

glyphs &

Maxwell House sign

'Good To The Last Drop'

familiar
cup for decades
tipped
tips &

one

(out-spilled)

drop

x 0 suspends

O suspends trembling
reflected in the water
river made of the many

countless drops

x (again) infinity

x (surprised) my
father there
(memento mori)
opening the
can all blue with
the same cup tilted
spilling that dark
brown dropp imprinted

x (the

dove,
to recall,
brown, shaped like
said drop, now
flown, or)
finally
spilled into water,
river currents
downward, to bottom
pulled sort/sift
my father always
complaining of grift,
a weather man by trade,
a cloud man once a
pilotWW2 drifting
often since enough
into sky

he turns
the silver opener
butterflied
round and round

with effort his
arthritic com-
plaints upon the
ridged silver top
of the can blue
with coffee
'course grind'
the better to drip
with within that
satisfying hiss
compacted air
hissing out
from compression
now released
the smell
then of coffee
fresh not yet
brewed in the
kitchen

the twist of
the edge jagged
silver metal
carefully turned
with fingers to
break the remain-
ing stem of metal
holding the round
to the can entire
unsealed now try
without spilling
the grounds
out

x at least 100 thousand

to guess having no
acumen with numbers
and math but father's
over
there in the cup tilted
over
spilling into
o endlessly
it's seams,
it seems from
river bank
into memory
which is,

already
over-said
overheard
redundantly
as river
and time,

this one
now recalled
to mind,

dad

dad
the cloud drift
and the flows
the tides beside
the city

(both sides)

is as ancient
as it always was
& is

as 'in the beginning
was darkness over deep
water & a word, '
any word really
would do it,
form
something
out of deep,
of dark,
of water
which shapes
itself only
by outer
circumstance
in this case
a word
leading up to
this -


Palisades cliffs
above bridge

allude perhaps
to river at
city's start
up from water

the silver bay
capped, remembering
centuries' frigates

x countless

ferries torn

and Tories be-
tween seas
wars
vast to
the east

x duplicating

waves, stretches

the narrows

the necks with
rocks strewn,

the lonely buoyless
waves over depths

their vespers
intone

once was laughter
spent

seeking out
between bodies

continents
valleys eternally

shifting eluding
rapture

x 1 whisper

contraction
of sentinel
bells against
each of each

reaching

x 2,

the clappers

x 20,000

(of bells
anatomy there
is much to
say
(of the
elements,
zinc, copper,
tin, & more
while not for-
getting brass
more commonly
used)
of infusion
into cuppolas

the beating
the shaping
heat also to
be given account
amounts much into
bells conformed
gracefully out
in the end,

but only
as metal,
sharp tongues
blunted can of
bells then speak

tonally only

overtones inviolate

in violent swings
side to side the
hard knock shocks
into quakes into
belfry beyond
dance of iron
bronze overtaking
& annunciate
round of hammers)

so many dawns

x so many goings

down of the sun

x fortune the lips

x myriad ones gone

before of murmurers

O lover


of thee

I adore


in timbre

thru the

window rings

(the bells)

the arms

of which

too

wring out

breath to

breath

x no more

embraces

into indolence


This

(yet)

again

(late
offering)

just to
reintroduce some
levity

for we

(loves)

were many day-ed

x merry we

merrily played
harming no one,
not even the
mouse unmoved

perhaps, watching
perhaps, still,

still, from beneath
the god you insisted
be excluded from
all our nakedness

Surrealistic Sutures For The Acetylene Virgin

'I think that poetry should stay
awake all night drinking in dark cellars.' - Thomas Merton


Look to the body for metaphor -

Look to blood, use this word
in relation to dreams or flowers
while silver runs in veins which
are usually streets or vines.

Breasts, male and female,
are stars, have to do with
a handful or feet to span them.

Abdomen, then, is a great
Milky Way gathering,
holding, expelling comets,
caroling colons' humming.

Spleens are bones
to pick teeth with, teeth
which are, of course,
sea horses or gravestones
bearing images of the Flagrant
Heart to tame this spot
of gypsum and flint, to charm
where Violin's cut throat sings
itself awake, one black breast
out of its fold slapping metal seas
against dropping metal shores in
Sidelight's shadow across this
hand writing now, slap of waves
mute in this stillness of knees.

So lend a darkness to gardens,
ancient pattern of a breast,
cloth lightly lifting, black on black.

From Her chest reveal a slenderer throat
that nods when she swallows
and names her peace.

The delicate will not pass away just yet.


Great Seamstress of Space

sew, please,

with fingers of dew.
 
Warren Falcon

Suturas Surrealista De La Virgen De Acetileno

Mire a la sangre, uso de esta palabra
en relación con los sueños o flores
mientras que la plata que corre por las venas
son por lo general las calles o las vides.

Pechos, hombres y mujeres,
son estrellas, tienen que ver con
un puñado o de los pies a palmo.

El abdomen, entonces, es una gran
Láctea reunión Camino,
tenencia, la expulsión de los cometas,
tarareando villancicos dos puntos '.

El bazo son los huesos
para recoger los dientes con los dientes
que son, por supuesto,
caballitos de mar o lápidas
imágenes con la flagrante
Corazón de domar este lugar
de yeso y piedra, de encanto
en la garganta cortada violín canta
se despierta, un pecho negro
fuera de sus mares veces bofetadas de metal
contra la deserción de metal en las costas
Sombra de luz de posición a través de este
la escritura a mano ahora, bofetada de las ondas
silencio en esta quietud de las rodillas.

Así que darle una oscuridad a los jardines,
antiguo patrón de un pecho,
paño ligeramente elevación, negro sobre negro.

De su pecho revelan una garganta esbelta
que asiente con la cabeza cuando se traga
y los nombres de su paz.

La delicada que no pasará por el momento.

Costurera gran cantidad de espacio
cosa, por favor,
con los dedos de rocío.
 
Warren Falcon
