Song of The Graceless Cadaver

Goya

Goya

Her face is a mask

painted on

with a shaking hand

her heart pumps wine, not blood

the years

have not been kind

to her.

Bitter and mean

youth has left her

a graceless cadaver.

 

She coughs and she hacks

a cigarette in her hand

she’s  used up and spent

twisted and bent

waiting for life

to knock on her door

again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Says You!

We considered behaving, but it’s against our nature.

There’s nothing certain in a man’s life except this: That he must lose it.

This morning- there was a little bite to the air, it was dark and October will be here soon.

I wish it were now.

This morning I saw the slow murder of Pioneer Square- she is slowly being crushed to death  by glass and cranes and steel.

I wish that were not happening now.

Or ever.

I wonder where this stone came from, is it art?

I wonder about that now.

I wonder what will happen to the rest of Pioneer Square- now.
