i wanted to write a poem : my 200th blogpost

thru & thru & thru

Rain & rain & rain
thru cold late-winter nights
bursting with intensity
as if on a
hot tin roof
decibels that
comfort and ignite.

Give sleep the elbow
the blacker the night the better
the night
just one stud
in Orion's belt
thru slow-moving cloud.

Lights & candles at bay
my voodoo chile
thru a blur of rain
forget your breath
& tumble out of bed.

  1. Aah, much prefer this font after initial enthusiasm for the other larger one. Congratulations on yr 200th! I like that 'stud in Orion's belt'. I imagine you in the attic, peering through the rain, Hendrix blaring!
