Last Rose

Poem By Brian (Yaotzu) Bungcayao

11 roses writing new rituals to the light of the rising sun.
Left on a doorstep with a million questions on a clouded mind.
A card reading no name, only words of poetry
to purge a breath from a porcelain doll.
Exhaling a blush even blind men can envision beyond the necessity of sight.
Sending shivers down her spine to her belly,
Transmitting the essence of joy through every nerve of her physical being.
Synchronizing her heart beats to the fight of butterflies.
Waiting with the final rose to end her long awaited anticipation.
Widening my arms to catch the world between my fingers.

The Bed Of A Modern Man

Where has the quiet gone?
Aching for the mouths of bickering beast to swallow their own tongs.
Envisioning the flames of crashing cars from drivers with no respect to the human foot.

Losers Never Win

Losers never win,
dim lit existence
showing up at heavens door
banging daily yelling 'let me in',

Lay With You

As I lay here
Will you lay with me.
Nonsexual embracing of shadowed walls
blocking out the light of day unappreciated

Love Letter 2003

I tried to write a poem for you tonight
To encapsulate the feelings of joy
Elevated to heavens eyes
Gazing into a windowsill

Unhappy Ending

They called her china doll
I called her for anther round

Her eyes rolled to the cat calls

Whatever Happened To The Slow Dance?

Whatever happened to the slow dance
Two souls weaving to the music
Bodies clinched to a slow jam
Mam, may I have this dance
