alive

a thrive

without her

i drove

her out

with a cuss

and a shout

so it goes

the lament

and the lame litany

a lame

on her going away

old

shelf

smell

like wet

rotting cedar

not enough

sunlight

air out

get out

no need ta shout!

ugly

shit

good

or out

jack

or practicing

disgusting

cult

control

demeaning

seeming

and truly

something to be destroyed

prayer

was said

with such

care

and despite

of all them that was

there

warming

up not quite

a loving

cup at the literal

crossroads

faith youth

and older

them moving on

professed

possessed

by the spirit

literally

same and not yet

hesitate

the words

had allure

still do

seen

or blind

to the touch

blind woman

on a corner

studded

for her disability

and yet

she could

not fathom

and work

up the courage

to walk into

certain death

without

gasping

a blue mood baby s breath

childish

wish to be healed

to feel

complete!

she meant

it was sent

the intent

something

else

gist

in general

plea to be

understood

 

coda

mode

of the way i feel

seems real

but faded

jeans with holes

you looked

like her

then again mebbe not

oought

to tread

there

and see

if there is a reposte

to the host

of words

being the only scabbard

my sword

sheath

does unleash!
