Honestly, I'm a Liar, & Other Balances & Imbalances

September 28, 2010

Another hole

facing facts, I’m two faced.

Another hole in my head would be good,

                                                                    no, better.

Another mouth  might make two stories

flow,  to & fro,  as would

go good  w/city sewers.

Plumbing deep, and sound,  no worries.

KATHY DARLING

whirling ’round & ’round again

’till yr off & away from where you were

as if   in incantations

as if  the world would surely be a blur

.

with cloudy comes this smoky delirium

it’s the same sixties christmas lights

Kathy Darling & I looked on from the linoleum.

White Album permeated but she delighted

in creating inner scenery for every metaphor

in a Paul Simon poem.

.

Kathy Darling needed to love me

but was too young to know love better.

.

Kathy Darling needed to weep openly

that school hallway. Tears fall way

hard on ink run.

.

As the room swings back to this stop,

“‘Kathy, I’m lost’  Though I know”/ stop

“I’m empty and aching and i don’t know why”/stop

I’m sorry/ stop/ I was too young/stop/ to know love better/stop
