A baby grows inside of me.
I know more than I ever have;
Lost in this quiet polar confusion.
I do not know where I am.
My ears, nature, music: they are
What? without that touch.
Why am I in love? I linger.
Where do different journeys lesson?
Why can I not make up my mind?
When will I stop wondering?
Always and never.

Treat people even better than you want to be treated,
Listen to that music, see those images

I used to sit on the couch and read Tu Fu to you,
You leaned on me, then sank into me, I sank into
You, we blended into one. Our Luos (soul) was able to
Exist in a beyond human, bond, a moment, a
Thought that moved and stayed. We used
To sit still in silence, we smiled and exhaled --
Our breath in - love air. I put almonds in your ears
At the park, with gardens of music gracing
Different songs at the same time... together.
We spoke about almond shape and textures.
In other times, we played with all kiss
ssssssssssssssss, eyes closed, oceans.
I put edamame in your ears. We laughed
As the same person. You looked adorable
With bright green baby beans in your angel ears.
I scent you, I listen to your breath, I taste your mind.

We Are Nature

Meaning reaches across, a small
Daughter, strong, unaffirmed, her
Fear captures her, because parents
batter her in torment, they were so
Mean, too much to overcome, the
We and they believed. Merciless,
She could have been so different.

Outbreak fear molds time
Power, soul experience. She
neshwadid ( uncerta...in true
place between want and need,
past tense) This little girl, adorable,
Came up
With the sweetest ideas, and when
The angels looked upon her they
Laughed, ahh, they tingled. Beathe
In deep. "Happiness ends."

Happier easier than we could ever be.
She hurt profusely because of scales,
Comparing to other people and things, forms
Continue. Somewhere else she sings for
The hope
through songs in ever remain
Wisdom, stop waiting! No time
Awareness understanding,
Power

My child, you will not see me until you get to
Heaven. Strands, seperate strong wind from wind.
Have humility in the dance stance of life,
With every breath, beyond body.
More humility = more beautiful soul.
God is all-powerful, in wisdom understanding
Untouchable, almighty Father takes control.
Mind open, pure love and acceptance.
The humble glorify God.

What is beyond your power? Do not watse your
Time. Be honest with your responsibilities.
The stubborn are oppressed with sorrow.
Without the pupil there is no light; without
knowledge where will you find wisdom?

For Ever


In violent brown river
I see my childs tears.

My husband lunges and clasps
His arm. My baby feels safe.

Water pierces air and water.
My husband falls in, I cannot

See them die.
I feel it.

Teenage Womans Wish


Love me kind
or do not love me at all.
Hold onto my beauty
let go of the flaws.

I want to share minds
Within the same soul without
Ends in time. To find
A poets relics that heal
Our souls every time.

Purple lightening
Peels rain. Our tree falls, we weep.
Remember the seed?
Decades with our tree? Naps, love,
Memory holds tragedy.

Bithermia


1

I slip on a rock covered by snow
And plummet into grey river. Gorges
Of adrenaline warm me, I cannot
Feel my body. I emerge out, about
To die. I writhe until my limbs cannot
Crawl. I accept death and hear silent
Concerts. I wonder which breath will be
My last. Then my wife gathers me with
All she has. Still, I die.


2

I am brought back to life, naked
With my wife, in warm shower water.
I see her body, I endure her beauty.

She holds me, her breasts dig for my
Heart, softly, we sob on the shower floor.
She prays into my ears and smiles
Into every memory I will ever have.

After Agnes


Our misfortune is better now,
better than furtive totality-imprisonment
and poets under siege. It’s better now,
our resistance and dialectics of ebbed
syntax; now is better than culture
roars and actions of slashed compassion.
There is a heart with a child inside of it,
it is better because it loses as if it isn’t.

The lord of clouds touches
things and places. Us children
wake art with him, we share
sounds, images, and feelings.
Yet adults rebuild misery and haunt
their own reality, they want us
to be like them; there is another
way. It can be better now.


This is the story of my enduring
childhood, with more than a space
of indecorum inside wiser future.
I want the adults to brood again.
Together they will never have to sing
through rebuilt misery or haunt their
own reality, they can dance with us,
where no one is waiting to be found.

11 Years 4 Months and 14 seconds


Music echoes from their silence,
He holds her senses, immense;
In her eyes, I can see their skies.

They ungravitate love, the image
Warms me with unwritten poetry.
Bred memories ballad the present.
