vv Butterfly Effect

Butterfly Effect
 

 

I

sunning on a cloudy day

enchanted by cottony plight

gray and white

sky blue

as my mind

 

brilliant teasing

in and out

dizzily rolling clouds

faces appear within the mist

to demise

among the crowd

 

II

sweat-beads track down

tickling my nose

like comical tears

 

numb from the neck up

the shadows of days slipped by

imprint a message on my soul

DON’T LOSE CONTROL

 

“nevermore” the raven said

starving soldiers eat their dead

give me love is written

between the lines

of frozen fingers

and jellied spines

 

III

beams of light

rip thru a darkening sky

a ladder reaching

where angels hide

but the rungs are broken

 

the sun has fallen

now night wears on

rain smacks the concrete

a soothing song

erosion

 

peering thru the window

of my wooden womb

i see colors dripping

from the wings of butterflies

 

Houston, Texas ‘81
