Letter #29

June 16, 2012

The bed is a marsh.

I acted without intention

and somehow found myself where I was needed;

your mouth opened with your body,  I swam

smoothly past its riverbanks,  side-stroking   to the sea.

 

Now, here is a string between two cans.

Love is mundane

wears dirty jeans and chews gum

the boy  writes her a poem, makes her   into a poem

everything happens  for  a season.

 

One skin at a time

I peel  son,brother, lover, father, husband,

friend

until the wind scatters  my bones for futures-

until the acid in the rain bleaches what  remains

down the gutters and  I stand

shaking  on a string 

strung  between your eyes.
