These now fully revised all just happened the past few days, and it was needed that I’d write them…:) Each are separate poems, I just pasted them all together.
I’ve changed all the locks I still love you my cat naps he snores like soft weeping my tears, but l don’t know our reason the soft, plush vacuumed rug I notice so much more in winter than in summer journals of poems I’d thrown out— what I remember most were their rhythm and their pulse rinse my face with cool almond milk think of how I’ve been thinking you are so pretty last night I picked out candy vanilla and strawberry softly chewy ice cream cones in glitter I could taste if you are wondering, my daydreams are sweeter, how I look at the sky all through the day; the candy-glitter kept its glitter, and I will keep my promise to gaze
you are my greatest puzzle when storms come and sun, the pieces don’t seem to fit together
the sky looks so blue that I step barefoot onto the balcony my feet feel the cold my eyes know I will look at the sky all through the day a brighter bulb in the living room lamp beach cottage, part forest I am just lounging by the bedroom window waiting for this loud airplane to pass I’d once gone to a rodeo but I didn’t want to look at the ring I’d gone to movies that I didn’t want to see this sunrise sky is the greatest screen for my daydreams to play out love me less and expect nothing the volcano says it’s not going to erupt, and so it doesn’t the great lake shrinks into a paper cup yeah right; the lake still thrives from here if there’s too much algae in this lake my hands will tend to that to pull out what is not in one’s heart, not possible, thankfully in love, we move afloat in a dance anyway
your smile sparkling your eyes, enchanted enchants me with a deep memory just begun desire, an ancient current, a few steps climbed with cushions, spoken… I saw you, I envisioned your visions, I see you never, I see you anyway…
