one world's end

revere.

remember

how once i could

jump on the subway

and jump off the subway

at the end of the world

in just half an hour?


remember

a crescent of sand

filling with crescents of waves

and crescents of winds

and crescents of dogs

and buoys dressed like dogs?

I also like this: a little poetry vs. prose sometimes. Good for those transition times in life. (So, that means most of the time....)

And I see you are listening to my CDs now. Hmmmm.... Sing Eternal Flame for me, loud and often.

Love you, B.

thanks, all.

mary-henry, yes i wrote this last night. i thought of it while watching the movie Pollock. Interesting how watching other artists or depictions of artists inspires one.

nanc, if only you could really go there, it would be a lovely respite.

mand, you know the rest of my life when not in the q lab is in despierto. i find i'm almost as interested in the physical shape of my poems as in the words. i'll sing eternal flame to you tonight in your dream.
