Forget Me Not

Poem By Charlotte Ballard

Forget me not-
Beauty of the night
For your flaming passions of
Fire and Air
Crystal and water
Drip through the crevices
Of my stony heart
Breaking it asunder
And releasing
Contrary emotions
Of love and hate -
Passion and desire.

I release the yellow
Pigeons to fly
To the Secret Island of Aslos
There your hand will bring
Down the dove, now transformed
From pigeons to that.
Oh, beauty, I sing
Songs about you
To anyone who'll listen
In hopes that one day
That it'll be repeated
To you, oh- how still
Your heart and hand lies
I hope the song
Will quicken
These and you will
Return for
Me.

Promise of stringy cheese, pepperoni
And tomato sauce warm. Each piece
Contested over, grabbed, hungered over

Burnt orange oak
Drifting down alone -
All its fellows

Emily, your words breathe fire.
From simple words to grand designs-
Heaven drops, sweet nectar.
I propose a promise

The Night Rider

Watch for the one that comes in the night
Unbidden and unknown-
Spring up on barren ground,
He rides a charging steed.

Taps

Taps are being played
In the middle of me
To say good-bye
To that part that
