Behind the Woods
Under the tent,
can't describe this light.
Under the black base are blue and red shadows.
The ink glistens, silvery like tiny mercury.
Working to purity,
music and words and sewat.
Let go the problems in time.
Sun bleached cure,
the addiction does not hold me,
as the drugs,
create the sound.
Saint Augustine night, moon mother smiles.
Catch the flow,
it may never be back again,
Poetic form disintegrates,
quit cold turkey,
so I can find what I have lost.
Termite stars shine on the oldest city.
The fascist doctors are no match for the
old man with beads.
Double digeridoo warble,
aboriginal soul hum.
Sweat, blue meets red.
Let it drop for peace of mind.
Fingerpicking violinist weaves notes
through the breeze...
words about money float by.
Hope springs eternal
as long as the well ain't dry.
