A Kindness

.
.
While
Waiting
For your
Shunning,
To be
No more,
Against
The pain,
I closed
My eyes.
Was it a
Novelty of
Kindness
That spoke
Goodnight,
Your whisper
A warning?
Without
Touching
My face,
You gently
Removed
My reading
Glasses.
When I
Opened
My eyes,
My arms,
You turned
Away.
Trapped
In awareness,
Alone,
Grounded
In reality,
I weep,
And I wail.
My arms,
My body,
My heart,
Enfolding
The space
Where your
Warmth is
Imagined.
I hear
The click,
Again,
And again,
And again,
As pretending
Not to be
Aware that
I am awake,
You firmly
Shut the
Shunning door.

Down Home Truth Punctures Mountain Top Bump Onna Log Deities

.
.
It took a lifetime
But Bear carried
Her burden basket,
As asked,
To the top of the
Slick glass mountain
Only to be told by the
Smirking Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities,
“You’ve got the wrong
Stuff in there.”
.
“Us Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities told
You to collect
The second scavenger list
Of goodies to bring to us first.”
.
“Take all this
Valuable heavy
Stuff back down,
Dig a deep hole,
And throw everything
In the hole and bury it.”
.
“Then bring back this
Other buncha equally heavy
Doodads of no value,
That is really the first list.
Hahaha, hohoho, hehehe”
.
“Then go back down
Dig up this second list
Of valuable heavy stuff
And bring that stuff
Up here again,
So that we can reject it
In the right order.
Hahaha, hohoho, hehehe.”
.
Did the weary Bear drop
Her burden basket?
.
Oh no.
Bear threw it down!!
Jumped all over the
Burden basket
And its valuable and
Heavy contents.
.
Then Bear threw
As heavy and sharp
As spear heads,
Some honest
Down home truths,
And a few heart-felt
Curses, as well.
.
The Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities
Laughed so hard they
Forgot to dodge
The harsh truth
And their hot air souls
Were punctured so that
They blurbbblububububed
Off the other
Side of the mountain
Like giant farting balloons.
.
The Mountain Top
Bump Onna Log Deities
Were never missed.
.
Except the local mayor
Did notice their absence
On voting day.
.
Sadly, however,
Bear’s burden basket
Was smashed to nothing.
It had been a fine
And useful basket.
.
The End

Toxic Grin

.
The rivers are dead
And sky has turned red
Hungry ghosts howl and
Are begging to be fed
Cherubim suckle on
Zinc white painted lead
All has become as the
Henna haired seer said
There is no pillow
To rest your foolish head
You must share the
The poisoned dreams
Slumbering in the
Animas river-bed
And when all waters
Have withered and dried
You will find that
Your ancestors came this
Way before they died

Thoughtfulness

.
.
I have
Ten
Thousand
Fiddly
Tasks,
For you
To do.
I just
Have got
To get
A good
Sleep
Tonight.
This must
All be
Done
Just so.
But only
If you
Have nothing
More urgent
To do.
It
Will be
Such
A relief
To have
This
Out
Of the way.
And if
You really
Don’t mind
Just after
Dawn
Is a
Good time
For me
To go over
All this
Stuff,
That you
Should have
Ready,
For me.
But,
Only if
It won’t
Interfere
With your
Plans?
By the way,
I will fix
My own
Breakfast.
While I
Am eating
You could
Box up
What all
I want
To keep.
Then,
While
You are not
Doing
Anything,
During the
quiet lull
After
I eat,
If you
Could give
My bed
Linens
A wash?
They smell
So much
Better
When they
Dry
In the
Sunshine.
I do
Worry so,
About you
Working
Too hard.

.
BUMP ONNA LOG:  Oh I can just tell, you can take my word for it.  I don’t need to ask her.
