four acres………………………6.11.09

their neighbor left
headed to the mainland
in a big hurry
leaving behind
five televisions
scattered throughout
and a baby grand piano
the sole living room
survivor

as i sit at his counter
in this emptied
maze of a house
i marvel at the oddities
of line & curve
walls & rooms
the oddest assemblage
of multiple apparent
afterthoughts

out of the massive windows
the thick jungle shows off
its finest
these acres of pristine park-like beauty
remain
while he did not

i remember how easily
one can leave
paradise behind
and how one knows
exactly when that moment
hits
when its time
its really time
to go

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...
