Gone Before

Poem By William D. Borgen

Walking across the frozen lake at dusk,
My tracks meet with other souls
Who have gone before.

To never know who they where,
Their joys, their sorrows,
Saddens my heart

But that's OK.
It doesn't really matter...

For all the tracks, the snow,
The lake ice itself,
Will be gone in the Spring.

In Each Other's Skin

Tides rock the fish to sleep.
Our child dreams in candy colors,
of green, white and red.
Hands cup the sunset.

A Fall From Grace

Arms reach across mountains to
seal the fate of lovers.

Teach me,

I Had Forgotten

I had forgotten
Of the blood and love.

Anger takes into

Oppenheimer's Hungry Ghost

Neutrons cascade
with geometric beauty.
Cause and Effect
Chase after each other's sex.

Anno: 2019

A thin, white sheet covers my corpse
A nun kisses my toes, one by one,
In a small adobe chapel,
On a high plains desert.
