YOU(AT YOUR SECOND WEDDING),DANCING
Alight with a knife grin /split skin joy beaming
Having found safe harboring/sanctuary
or RE-found/this time with wise accomplice
voluntary /optional heart burglary
THAT is the fire that burns all words to crisp!
YOU,WALKING DOWN CONGRESS FOR PEACE
Our steps aligned but not/again,that possum smile
as if peace were already evident
YOU,DISPENSING ADVICE TO CHICON ST.POETS
Based upon over two decades of dedicated practice
designed for inclusion/adventuring/risk-taking
YOU,ADDING TINY PEARL POEMS TO "LITERA"
Over and through the weaved tapestry of poets
Anti-clique,anti-cliche,pro-open heart surgery
BETWEEN THE SOUNDS ,where silence sits
and waits for us to catch up to meaning-
there is a circle and a fire of conversation eternal
stoked by meaning,pretense,illusion ,metaphor,story,image
This is not where you are.Ask Helga.
