heartbeats for her grace

~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~

I

eyes arrive and leave
coming, going, claiming me
such eyes are my flame
 

II 

your eyes these black moons
do rise, do set; I follow
black moons my life-stones
 

III 

open your black moons
open my life-stones blithely
burn me my black flames
 

IV  

forever I plead
mendicantly forever
begging back blackness
 

V  

in thanks crying on
gratitude flaming my eyes
crying your courage

es flüstert etwas
etwas zischt
solches seufzt mich durch
 
et les étales
tous les étales pleurent
je suis une étale abandonnée
 
na réaltai méain oíche
mo réaltai
an bhuil siad dubh go deo?

last day of winter
so it snows
all day long it snows
 
walk in it, shovel it, watch it in windows
but only late remember:
it snows on your brand-new grave.
 
snows on his grave, year on year
snows on you there with him,
just lately come, with flowers there a-wilt,
I presume.
not seeing,
I presume.
 
it snows there in that place not seen
for ten years and twenty and ten more again
snows on him
who trusted you
snows on you, lately come,
who broke his trust.
snows as it will one day snow on me,
I presume.
no other fixed place at hand,
it’s presumed I will go where you are.
 
it will snow on him,
who trusted you and shunned me
snow on you, who betrayed him,
who had no time for me.
snow, that I have loved,
will smother me there in the dirt
with both of you.
no place else to go.
closeness that in life you didn’t want,
he didn’t want,
closeness with me,
will come one day, forced on you both
in the dirt and the snow.
 
my mouth won’t tell,
your ears won’t hear.
readers of the granite words
will think we were a family,
 
and it will snow.
 
last day of winter.
it snows all day.
snows on me in exile,
snows on him for years,
snows on you, 
johnny-come-lately,
lain in his place,
snows all the day there
on you.

in spacetime,
at lightspeed,
I have sped,
sped,
flown among neutrinos,
at lightspeed;
have spun widdershins
the bony hands of
an erroneous device,
and have made it THEN again.
so that now, in
then,
you and I are whole again,
walk and breathe and
breathe and walk again,
in then, now.
 
the folds of timespace,
the swift of light,
have brought us home.

haiku

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

thirteen

snow softens our sounds.
featherly fly our snow-names.
gods are ruthless lies.
 

fourteen

I tried to freeze to 
death when they stole you from me.
failed on that ice-bed.
 

fifteen

thieves gather again.
will I seek ice now, or flood.
will I again fail.
 
 

sixteen

black rabbit dies on
orange floor, alone. alone,
I pulse orange, black.

haiku

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

nine

 

tabby invents games.
heavy human head learns them.
tabby forbears, bears.

 

ten

 

shh… snow falls, snow sighs,
whispering me my snow-name.
I whisper back:   yes.

 

eleven

 

close your lips quickly.
snowfall speaks the element.
you can add nothing.

 

twelve

 

the dog remains lost.
I search caves for my dog-name.
universe stays shut.
