When You Dance

Poem By Patti Masterman

When you dance, the earth's ghost
Moves sublimely through your body,
Sine-waves twist in continental drift
And the suns rays noiseless behind.

Then the surface tensions rise,
Up above the hidden quarries;
Their back-lit corridors soon ambushed
By the sound of a thousand cries.

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;
That this is the now, and you are here alive,

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.

Anti-Love Poem #1

When you've loved someone,
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-
