You had me at Hello
You said hello
And it was a good and well measured handshake to my soul
You asked how are you
And I sun shined and star ran
You said it’s good to see you
And I cried rivers of joy to float us and keep us high and high
You smiled and talked about the weather
Our love was stretching time to its limits,
We were ageless lovebirds painting new skies for cavern beings
You said we should go out sometime
I wanted to tell you that eternity was ours to have
That time was a thief but our love eternal
When we said good byes
I kept a piece of you well hidden in my heart
You left with my breath and I still don’t have any regrets.
In my house, you find grass for walls and the sun for lamp
In my house, windows are blurred or spotless depending on the state of my soul
In my house, doors are custom fit to your mind. Don’t be surprised if you can’t walk through.
In my house, chairs match the softness or hardness of your skin. They can’t be fooled, believe me I tried.
In my house, the TV only shows your thoughts so be careful to not step or sit on the remote control
In my house, the table loves all, suffers all, forgives all and supports all regardless of gender, race and religion.
In my house, rooms are chambers of our hearts, there’s no keyhole, but your significant other always knows how to get in.
In my house, there’s no entrance or exit door because the universe is always at home in my house.
Westside Portland’s waters contained low but threatening levels of E. Coli
Symptoms include fever, diarhhea and death in worst cases
It comes from animal or human shit
There’s no cure for human or animal shit or bacteria
It’s malignant and resilient
Water bottle companies saw increased profit sales over the weekend
Nothing like human or animal shit or bacteria to remind the good citizens that water aint free
Darfur war due to water shortages caused several hundreds of thousands deaths
This was death knocking a hundred of thousands times and making it every single time
This was one soul, two souls and a hundred of thousands souls
The average American individual consumes 159 gallons of water while more than half the world consumes 25 gallons of water
The average American industry energy consumption should drive us mad, make us sick and leave us trembling
Facts are fat sometimes
You stack them like fast food one on top of the other
You open wide and swallow them,
Your stomach has enough acid to break them down.
Your body like the earth is made primarily of water
Little Hydrogens bonding with cute Oxygens to make plenty of Hs and Os.
So let us pause and
Pray our heart out
For water that washes, that purifies and fills us up
Water can’t be made, but is always bought
Oil can’t be made, but is always bought
Remember: for every Thing the Earth makes, blood is dripping somewhere.
We out here
We out here licking our wounds and baring our teeth
We out here howling to the moon and throwing fired glances
We out here in the wild
We out here in the cold
but not here or there
feeling our way out of the darkness
one foot in front of the other
the sun is at our feet and the rain above us
a rainbow forms our belt
we keep stars in our pockets
to throw out as we moonwalk back into us
Let them speak, I say to you
They growl because they don’t have a bite
They puff and puff and puff
While we out here
And we aint going nowhere.
I like this poem for the way inside and outside are set up so nicely to play against and together. Great poem!
Why do I love this poem? Two words: rested skin.
Skin, get your rest today.
