The Near-Part: Energy And A Bird

Poem By David Smith

I look upon a book of peoms
Done by a single man
And wonder how he got all those words
Inside a single book
Energy and a bird
Good near and far
The Far part I got
The Near part is hard
To learn the Near part is hard
That is the trick
The shadows descend upon me and Moses
Upon me and Isaiah
We got the Far part
It is the Near part that's the trick
I hear the beat of Ezekiel's band
And the clarinet of Moses
It ain't the Far part, Charley
It's the Near part we gotta learn.

They spoke like they knew her, like she was an important person to them.

Thanks for the wine in time
It helps keep me in line
It brings my priorities to mind
Thanks Anica for the Bosnian brew

Making a day of it
With a jewel or two
Saying something what needs saying
Shall I take her along who smokes?

Cold Texas Night

Healing feeling too close to the ground
Love is the greatest healer
Angel flying too close to the ground
