Collage 13

To what do we owe this intermission?

I drink cumulus from a mason jar

but nothing worth salvage brews in me.

I carry the mementos and scars

of every transition we have ever

jointly maintained. My heart does not wane

though these abbreviations refuse to spare.

I see you, I bate you, I wolf you down.

Remember the haunted televisions

we saw while chasing rainbows through asphalt?

We were inebriated, infectious, half-laughing

And death smiled at us as if we were the only

one’s left alive. At our best did we not embody love?

Leave me if you must, forget me while you can,

but in the end it’s inevitable, surrender, home.

Even though we fail, we still have the grace to bow.

I am beat 6 hours of cleaning. The painting is finally done!

  1. I drink cumulus from a mason jar

    ~breath taking~

    I see you, I bate you, I wolf you down.

    Smackingly brilliant. oh oh oh oh … I am envious 😉

    [rest and try to be well and slightly less frantic now]

  2. Almost reminds me of an adolescent crush and chase.
    Foolish to think that at least in the beginning we are so far from death. And those crushes on actors or singers that we could only realize in our dreams… And then we get lucky some of us to find the one who always finds their way home, because home is where-ever they/we are together.

    Lovely room – now after the holidays you can rearrange things back to what ever passes for normal 🙂
    My Hubby was helping other family today. So I still don’t have any photos hung up. Maybe tomorrow… or next week.

    Thanks again for a wonderful collage. I was playing with photos in one operating system but I couldn’t figure out how to get it into the one I use for working with my blogs. Argg…. I’ll get there one day with the photo stuff. My threat to hire a Geek may come sooner than later. But might have to wait until next year 😉
