Late September Before Dawn

The Big Dipper, standing on end . . .
where the bottom star is nearest the ground,
I find it in a giant’s palm — lucky for me he’s sleeping.
I tickle his wrist . . . he loosens his grasp,
and I’m off with a constellation
of my own.

(first publication)

Note: Technically, I guess, The Big Dipper isn’t a constellation. Somehow, though, I couldn’t bring myself to write

and I’m off with an asterism
of my own

Mein Geist:

Dark nights washed by distant rippling trees
and alien winds covering your eyelids, purifying
like everything, move on with splendid ease
leaving us a message: life will never cease
its sleepy course in vain
in order to attain
rebirth, since Death is not and Life is dying.

The heat around Time's corner waves a scent
for creedence revival of some virtual vampire
as deep inside. A force considered spent
returns from utter non-existence that was meant
to keep us out of breath -
Is Life both Life and Death?
Riddle of the Night! The Day be hot and dire.

My Poetry Blog


Adiós, mis vacas! Que pasa en esta temporada de tristeza?
La soledad se cultiva en las ciudades;
viva la muerte.
Uno no debe imaginar que el hombre es bueno.
El paisaje se despierta en un fiel espejo, pregunte.

La noche ha porches de la siesta en ruinas con pistacho.
Débiles enemigos se disipa amigos sin
valor. La calle es corta.
Hay falta de coherencia, la esperanza y la fe.
Todas las puertas evitadas saludan: No pasarán.
