Musings Of A Dead Old Man

Poem By Gilbert Alasa

The ample stage a heed flung
And beseech those who crave to snoop
Its counsel
The familiar lots disdain, blaring
A man’s back doth not lean

Instead, thy solo boat steer
Amidst abounding tempting sounds
But exploring her widespread parts
Grazing the ugly white feeds
All alone

Like a miserable flock without a shepherd
The day the little crab hatched
Its mother’s milk doth not rely
But daily toil the slippery shores
With its infant, greasy feet

Death

Questions about Death

Where do we all go when we die?
Or how do we bind our hasty time

Cry For Haitians

My heart goes out to the Haitians
Having lost touch with the stillness of your land
Yet have you been made to travel still
Clinging your teeth to the back of trees

Sounds Of Broken Lips

Sometimes I cry, somedays I groan
Yet, no one seems to behold
This ever-flowing tears
In this dark world I fare

A Crack In My Mother's Wall

Somewhere among naked clouds
Have we, but waning songs to sing
How could we stand these lingering frowns?
Such that scorn our faces still

Elegy Written In A Desert Creek

Can’t you feel?
How you gnaw my tongue so hard, yet pledge
To heal this wound thereof
You scratched the silver panel off my skin
