I Had Forgotten

Poem By William D. Borgen

I had forgotten
Of the blood and love.

Anger takes into
Her arms
One's half-death,

Selling reason to the
Highest bidder.

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,

Gone Before

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

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.
