the wheel rolls around
without breaking butterflies
luck my fate this time

dance in a circle
traditional rhythm
booming drums echo

drums like old dragons
koi in and out of shadow
voice of ancient things

song of grain planted
a seed already growing
vigor of new life

Tower

Tower

I can't escape you
you come
glittering
scintillating in gold
uncaring of my fate
I am one more notch
just another mortal lay
and now they laugh, saying
"golden shower".
This is worse than death at sea.
Leda is famous art.
No one laughs at Io,
that fat cow.
Neither one, the deserved
bestiality joke
And what of all the others?
But me, I am recalled
when recalled
not as princess in a tower
but some girl
into
water sports
droplets still falling
over the spelling of my name.

One gray night it happened
a boy outgrew his friend
But new beginnings bite the tails
of even that tale's end

When Jack became a father
as boys, grown up, will do
He named his bright-eyed daughter
little Jackie Paper, too.

When he put his child to bed
the stories that he told
were of adventures out at sea
in search of pirate gold
and treasures such as sealing wax,
or fancy stuff like giant's rings
and how he had a mighty friend
who earned the bows of kings.

Then on he started making up
more stories for her just the same,
And somewhere in a deep dark cave
a dragon heard his name

A dragon's love lives on and on
and waits to roar again someday
so even if you have grown up
dream again, make believe... and play.

not out of trust in weather

limited choices
stress tests performed on patience
tensile strength measured

quick little note
part of a finished poem
Scribbled on the back
butterflydreaming: "Cris", in blocks with a blinking cat (Default)
That which no one seems to see
Little thefts of forgotten things
Unmissed, unnoticed, for the taking:
Rhinestones plucked from crushed earrings

A dime left in a drawer of junk
Batteries from a broken clock
An ribbon dropped along the street
A key far wandering from its lock

Scavanged out of dusty corners
A sticker sheet, a post-it pad,
A journal, words scrawled on its pages,
I didn't know that I still had

A fragment of an old perspective
Out from underneath your lies
My worth stolen back again
And my reflection, from your eyes

On a crowded bus
On a warm, dim, gray morning
On the way to work
