Strawberry Dreams

Poem By Bengt O Björklund

Dying at the hands of mortal dysfunction
one man is but another man’s intention
and as all roads with agony reel and rivet
without the sound of the one eye blinking
I see no reason not to go on
flinching to the tunes of yesterday.

I am no less than the sum of all trees
and all other visible attributes
of the omnipresent substance of which
we cannot speak, imagine or fathom.
I am an old bumblebee trapped
in a flabbergasted spider’s web.

Seriously, no man can ever comprehend
the implications of that which can only
be explained within itself, of being I
in the perpetual infinity of being more
than the other more can ever understand.
Thus I cherish strawberry dreams.

... And You

I will never fall for dark digital wolfs
that lurk in murky quiet pools
where airy assailants silently die

Dylan Thomas Was Here

Part one

There will never be a moment
like this summer’s day I am.

To Sam And Dave

Poignant by proxy, it seemed,
as I saw myself on a slow slide,
denying all disastrous days,
now nameless without content

A Dream

The elevator rises far beyond
the wanted floor
turns into a subway
with an unseen female driver


She was just the voice
to file the dark cabinet,
the secret choice,
pulling me

Here And Here…

So lost but not in fear
I stretch for meaning and intent
in days that constantly lace the present
with all immediacy’s nerve,
