POTES 4 POTES' SAKE

weeds

*

by billy forbes

*

weeds

let the masses run and hide

the grass is dying---

the lower class has taken us

for a ride

*

i dreamt of the scene in a dark,

firelit parking lot of decadence

people putting values on things

that make least sense

*

weeds

the cars run over themselves

and die...the reef has trapped

the ship of ignorance

on rocks of knowledged lies

-------------------------

SONG OF RINUNZO

*

by Astinerzo Rinunzo

*

Hold me ever so close

Administer (me) the Lethal Dose

pick out for me a daisy or

A Lily one of those

*

For thou hast slain me

even where I stand

Thou hast banished me

to a surely foreign land

*

I have been a child in

your arms my friend

With luck and love

a man to prove again

We may have seen inside the Soul

and perhaps even Known the fruitful Fold

*

And thou hast conquered

like a king from very far

with my Galaxy collided

Thou art but my fatal star

*

Kiss me once and I shall fall

into the harmony of your every call

Bid me onward to provide your all

Thou hast blinded me of sun

and moon and even candlelight

I am what's left as you can right

We are the stillness of the snowy

sleepy winter's night.

Amazing~~two disparate poets appearing on the same page!  I'll get the hang of this back=wise at last.  I feel like a conduit...or maybe an enabler.  Now if only i could reply to the voices in my forgetful brain.

I anticipate many & much commentary--
and encourage all archivists & poets [pomers]
to join in. My mood was literate...
Mssrs. Forbes & Rinunzo could not be far different
And yet each stands alone, historically~~

"We are the stillness of the snowy/sleepy winter's night." Oh my. I like that much. And fatal star. (so pass the word on to Astinerzo, wudja?) i used someone else's poetic phrase to make a PICTURE (animation) make sense. How verbal is that. Here's the link to that:
