Living the Life

Day 3 of Nano Poblano, and the idea of a morning teleconference with authors was made just a little better with a proper writing prompt.

Green Grass

Silence,

the green grass upon which

every dream of summer rests,

to wither,

lost for seasons,

burnt,

then cold,

unremembered,

until awakening in the

nightmares of another spring.

Muth Labben

ben muth labben

Today is for counting my wasted yesterdays
Each one neatly lined up
row on dusty row

Every year the same

Today is for remembering your unborn tomorrows
And the time I sit
because walking is too slow

There is no blame

Today is for pretending to make sense of the past
From a life ended
with nothing to show

When I speak your name

Today is for thinking that memories last
But all they do is fade
until they go

Like every unfinished song to be sung
About the death of a son

Holes

Sometimes

we fill the holes in our lives

with deeper holes

Waver

I waver

between imagined

happy endings

And realized

disappointments

Fearing

my unreadiness

for joy

This just in,

we all suffer fools.

And if you doubt me,

you don’t own

a mirror.

Long ago

I learned to take “no”

for an answer

 

In words

 

And more when words aren’t spoken

and the absence of a “yes”

whispers louder

Exonerate

There is no court to exonerate

No appellate or arbiter, in this world,

or the next

To discharge such unconvicted guilt,

accepted life sentence of a twisted

heart

But myself
