If I Were A Moon

Poem By Patti Masterman

If I were a moon, I'd chase your sun,
Or if a butterfly, you'd be the one
Flower, that I could not resist;
Or if a valley, your green I would kiss,
And if a cloud, when the day is done,
The spark of lightning, the storm's begun.

If you were death, I'd be the tomb,
If you were birth, I'd be the womb,
And if you were higher to reach than the sky,
I'd hitchhike the meteors, whistling by-
For love is the field that holds the whole world,
As patiently, patiently time is unfurled.

A house breathes through its bones,
Its summits sit like sentries;
Though rafters decompose-
It never denies entry.

I Am That

Behind the movies scenes, behind the protagonist's smiles,
Beneath the orchestra's strings, back of the ticket booths,
There is a message found in all of this;

How Much Are Words Like Bridges

How much are words like bridges-
Or fires, to cut a swathe,
Some distances not traveled;
Last stop, where love got off.

As much as you're capable of,
Just let them go. Even better,
Don't write about them- ever.

A Bear Came To Dinner

A bear came to dinner;
He ate before the bell,
He didn't use his napkin,
I am here to tell.

Abuse Me

Abuse me, abuse me;
For it does amuse me,
How you wound and contuse me,
Baffle and plain ole bruise me-
