Waking up in the afternoon....
« on: September 28, 2007, 05:01:05 pm »
I dreamed I could fly,
Falling asleap thinking of you,
My mind turned to the hills,
And the pastures just outside your door.
And I was gliding along,
In the sweet twilight.
But I was gliding alone.
"It was only you in my life, and it will always be only you, Jack, I swear."

That was so beautiful and bittersweet.  Thanks for sharing.

I am a poor boy,
Having paid the cover charge,
I have enough in my pocket for
Three beers.
It won't be enough I know.
To let my guard down,
To unclip my tongue and speak
To someone.
I will have to streach them out,
As long as I can,
In hopes someone will speak
To me.
Perhaps he will offer to buy me one.
A fella can dream, can't he?

In another hour,
You will be suspended above the world.
Another will be waiting for you there,
To carry you off,
To see bats, eat Mexican and dance,
Dance the night away.

I will feed your dog,
Who will not come out
From under the porch.
She, too, has only a need,
And then she is off
Dance the night away.

But that is another hour,
You buy me a biscuit,
You tell me you'll call
When you get there.
Go, I tell you at the curb
Dance the night away.
"It was only you in my life, and it will always be only you, Jack, I swear."

Matters not how early I rise,
I will always leave the house running.
Running late.
My shoes pair'd up, but I reach past them
For my boots.

Stomped full on they carried me
Out of a sunny day in California,
Cotton Eyes Joe ringing in my head.
Carried me down the streets and dancefloors
Of San Francisco.

The heals push me that little distance
And I am Six Feet tall, and thiner.
These boots wil carry me into my day,
Thru the clouds and the loneliness,
And remind me of better days.

Come friend, as I am sleepy,
And I can see you are tired,
Lets us curl up here together a while
And Nap, as I can always sleep better,
Curled around someone,
Perhaps you can too.

If we put our heads side by each,
If we touch them together,
Maybe we will have the same dream,
Maybe we will not be apart at all,
And a little more time will be ours,
Where there is never enough.

I went to Florence once,
David was everywhere,
In all his naked and marbled glory
The vendors in the markets
Sold postcards of his penis.

And that night,
I dreamed of a Cyclopse.
"Oh" I thought when I woke,
"Now I understand".
"It was only you in my life, and it will always be only you, Jack, I swear."

I do not know if I have slept or not.
The room is starting to fill with light
In an hour or so he will  rise, and,
Start his hunt.

Another thanksgiving,
The children and the grandchildren
The meal I will work on for three hours
And that Damned Electric Knife.

Their faces about the table
Smiling, Indifferent,
My fork pushing food while he
Grates my nerves one more time

Every year I tell myself
I will make it go away
Every year I scrape the plates
And remember.

This is my life, my outcome
With man who said he would
Love my girls.
Ennis, I am so sorry.
