Example text

Eventually even poetry leaves us flat, When we hear the same colors over and over ad nauseum. By now eyes have grown older with life, Yet we still stumble around for what really is. We turn to lines of hope and jokes, Glued to refrigerator magnets. As age stiffens bones even these become cliche. In desperation we search for the Word of creation. Obsessively we repeat ourselves – Our brains arthritic dogs crawling after mangy tails. We could save a lot of grief if we skipped past this And were able to look within the word.

Naked ancestry in water, Slowly dissolving, Leaving only a stain. SWEET SONG SO YOUNG Orpheus in straw hat and blue button-up, Before the ash and bile of grief. Eurydice by his side, Before an asp gave her soul relief. Two by two genesis circles, As his flute spills love, his heart truth. Their world bound by her silk hair and his bare feet, The green glade the limits of spring's youth. She looks through the swirl of life, Pierces the white veil to our universe. But he plays on unaware his song is fading, Or that his love has glimpsed time's curse.
