Ready or Not

I don't really mind that the day
goes by with nothing much done
the situation is ripening my destiny
gradually or suddenly to be revealed
I observe this happening what can
I do but what I do ready or not

Needy Lips

the mind is a field of play
disobliged of remorse
forms announce themselves shyly
hidden by their particulars
matter only in themselves
without needing to be seen

substance flows like milk
warmed for needy lips
transformed in consuming
existing in becoming true
before the moment is gone
marked only by pleasure

what happens is all there is
where you are in it unknown
still making moves you
diligently inch along
joyfully doing your part
as the seasons revolve

Similar Trees

remote and foggy coast to live
somewhere other exotic impulses
take away everyday cares desire
a memory silent sparks expired

or wandering forest similar trees
conspire to ignore me when I cut
thinking only to let in more light
and shade they heal live wounded

secretly in cities hidden by doors
and multitudes lost among others
private histories privileged first
forgotten dreams the realer place

Our Kisses

to be intimate
loving companions
is all I want
and have to give
romantic to the core
affectionately close
our kisses speak
whatever else
can't be said

Here I Am

here is where I am now
on this fertile planet amid
far-flung spinning galaxies
surrounded by walls and furniture
on the border of our town USA
wearing this envelope of air
molecular gravitational
slouching on my pillow

I is this body
what we agree I can be
defined by shifting circumstance
and age increasingly
as if there could be doubt
or any other outcome
and personal history
no one knows
and I remember strangely

am is the personal to be
not forever but long enough
first person present tense
until these molecules disperse
existence is required
awake or sleeping dreaming
happy or appalled my
beautiful world despoiled
by our very existence

and then actually be here
not only breathing
awake to the whole shebang
take it as what it is
a sheer fiasco forever worse
and continue to live
