15 questions at 2:28am 5.4.07

arrangements?

like flowers?

like

furniture in a living room?

like

our grandparents’ marriage?

like

seating at a dinner party?

arrangements?

arrangements and steady income?

like:

steady hands?

steady jobs, maybe?

the way ladders are held?

to keep us from falling, steady?

money shaken out of envelopes, steady?

asses wiped with remaining unread contents, steady?

jerking off onto paper with pen, steady?

gravy trains rolling south, steady?

no matter what’s on the other side of a stamp, steady?

dogs die

brakes fail

daughters sometime need

arrangements shape-shift

and change with the tides

sometimes arrangements

have to

for awhile

steady arrangements become

infused with eventual concern

with a knowing gratitude

constant wonder and gratitude

patience has to

or should

become the only remaining

steady arrangement

for awhile

as exercise or exorcism, i write...for the eyes of others, for my eyes and heart only, for the love and the rage, i write...to release the gamut of emotion...to tell the truth and say what's often thought but not written...
