.the night is of poetry. by StJoan
the day of sweet song
and melody that rises
in the sizzling sun
but i belong
creature of breeze
and cooling quiet
in the void of stars
Reason on Mutein the love of philosophyReason on Mute by StJoan
against the battle cry
and for the sake of sanity
for all I have said
I as well said nothing
DivorceSound was not invited to dinner,Divorce by StJoan
she was busy with you tonight.
For me, a can of soup sufficed--
I do not yet know how to cook
The TV movies, sitcoms, reality shows,
prime time dramas told me
to put down the pint of ice cream
open a bottle of white wine
bob my hair
find a younger man
strut like I own the world
pawn the ring
ignore the tan line
move on, up, out
but on the patio,
I light a joint, listen
for the suburb's muted murmur.
I packed your bag
kissed you good night, parted lips
to tell you again but
you took sound with you.
HurricaneIn time we feel the same rolling heatHurricane by StJoan
waves and tropical disturbance
builds over warm water
swirling mass of vapor and energy.
The mercury rises and falls with it
our breath sighs and stress,
fingers gripping into plywood, wobbles
stalls and charges forward.
The memories say we should leave.
HalcyonI must not smile so muchHalcyon by StJoan
when the sky is the color of decaying
snow without the crisp cold
to hold me hostage in reality.
They think it strange
for lips to be swollen
glowing pink and pretty
up turned despite the clamoring
rush, hurry, faster, farther
falling around me.
It should fade, vanish in the flux,
yet even as I bite the curve of my lips,
it will not yield.
I've been accused of going by Joan, but really my actual name is Alicia. |
I recently relocated down to Austin, Texas because let's face it: it's the best place on the planet.
Occasionally I write something worth reading, but more often than not I'm in the business of quick scrawls and scraps of poetry that i've been terrible about getting back around to them.
Follow me on twitter StJoan or join me and others at Texasdevmeets around the state I won't bite, i promise.
