You Are Too Pure And Free


 

 

 

You are too pure and free,
I can tell by the debris
of relationships
that lock you into such a storybook
fantasy
where everything else is a
final shade of pale grey:
nothing
decided as you endlessly change

Partners, and retreat into the vagaries
of impossible superiority
and fame; life,
your decree, shows no sign
of meaning
Nor a season in this hell of fear,
from which
you do not know: that here,
the angels’ work is treason

-excerpt from Silence Louder Than A Train

Poets don’t live by Likes alone, IN RIPARIAN FIELDS, and satires in TORMENTING THE MONKEY

Conjugation


 

 

 

 

This is the way we make love –
Words back and forth, innocent
Repartee and almost hidden
From ourselves, but she knows
I wouldn’t quit; she’s ideal, and

Though we might never meet
She could say yes any day; I’d be
More than ready every way, my
Vowels in place for greater conjugation:
Literature, my aim and obligation

Blood Upon The Moon


Ripa1

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poetry is far behind me, now:
I have lost the gift of music,
the memory-hidden silences

That place where once I lived
in glory, is occupied:
by cruel forces of the invasion

The armies of the ignorant
twitch, and kneel:
they leave their blood upon the moon

Too Much


Ripa1

 

 

 

Too much coffee, too many
Cigarettes
Scrape against my soul

Like I bumped
Against you:
Without regret

One world down
One more
To go

Poetry has been an essential art in history and is in danger of being trivialized into extinction.
Several seminal events in recent literary history are detailed in illustrating how poetry is not merely an adjunct to history and culture but can elucidate and influence those same events and deeds.

is a wide perspective on a combination of poetical and social influences –
