Monster broke from the track

Carly’s man not coming back

the grey line of the sky meets 

the narrow smear of pale blood

the blushing rush of winged life

upon the virtue of blue hills and

radiant mornings and the like

but abandon me with disgrace

For now, for ever the heart weary

folded within itself, a golden sparrow

it plays on margins with bright hope

fleck n’flutter and arrows long and true

I not so certain walking on eggshells

out of control in Texas and nervous where?

wanting more and then wanting less

the simple girl in a pale blue dress

More than ever dreamed or schemed

Its late and dark and wet and cold

Imagination’s red and bold, Marie,

a gold-star coach, a pocket of notes 

sometimes we step off a plane

wander down streets we never seen

floating over reality’s silver sheen

in Texas, Arizona, Bakersfield, Carp

those places we never even been

and the orange sun shouting! 

just wanted to run – be someone else

run – be somewhere else than hell

The effluence of my short life .. . I'm a Writer and Artist - since 1966, now a Blogger ~ I write lots of poems, written essays, articles, reviews, opinion + comment .. . please join the shebang but more importantly please leave me a marker with a comment for my ego and my encouragement :- thanks, edenbray
