Blue shadows all over the Berkshires. The sea of evening is sad, a star burnt out. The wild forest may wash away like darkness. What is the black leaf of October? What is the bronze chain that holds the darkness to the wet lilac of madness? Coffee at the studio. The world’s interiors. Full moon night and our amorous goodbyes. Ultimate green leaves. Blue night sleeps in my eyes like the madness of cellos. The mountain Hovhaness sang has left its titanic footprints upon me. That which the ocean has forgotten colors October Mountain and makes music on the horizon.
How experimental is the wet moon, how expansively laid before you, super-troubador! How like Lisa is the hour of the footprints of red steel left beside the Mekong River! Every friendly mountain is blushed with mushrooms on a blue night. Small, icy waterfall, the Yahwist rain, talk the cellos through the interiors of your golded poem. Brooks echoing primary colors, you stop on the shell light, the twisted conch. Strong dog, say goodbye to the evening, the warm hearts of mysticism and beef. Phillipines, vary your music, disregard these variations. Opinions will structure their own variations. These circles force truth.
She stretches tautly, vigorously for tournament, yet her hair is soft and her features are perfect. Her eyes say peace. Her character is stalwart and her intelligence is real. She’s got the figure adorable. Ruffled hair she wears casually. Her quizzical looks are friendly. There is a brassy perfection in her voice, a grasp of the issues. The light blends well with her complexion. She does not bend her head far from the vertical. She quietly questions our world. I’ll describe her motions in rouge on white stock paper. Two or three lines can describe her appearance, friendly to consider.
Limeade on my tongue, and your heartbeat and your hair my feast, you barefoot girl innocent among spearmint leaves. Let us sleep and wet each other down with kisses until my fingers touch you and search for you more deeply, and your heartbeat and your gold hair press upon me. All I have left is a rusted heartbeat and a mind. I will give you a blue feel for love rated R, rated X. This is the dust of dense words undamaged by wind that sucks fruit for the blue symbols found in it. Just give me dense red rain.
In nebular cantos, the starry-eyed cantos, the evergreen century releases its spectacular flags. Electrical storms are innocent, gathering rain like old words in an evergreen-emerald canto. I view night after night them detonating the sculptured rose, the scripture of rock that night takes to the poor–a stillness of my own, though reason is my endgame. The graveyard is the reason the centuries storm the last red rose, pulse-red and rooted in the ancient blue moon mounted above the canyon. Don’t burn the evergreens in a ritual storm. Let reason be your rose allegro, crystal, raven-hearted.
Words are the cup I drink from, containing my perceptions and restorations. Words set blazing in me even as I put them down, rivers of restorative color that medicate me as does Schubert here and there. Jeremy Fire, you must be honest to lift the great song. Don’t let old memory get lost in the woods. The butterfly wing and tear light are native here. Words are the cup I drink from. Schirra I will remember when a lot of other things are ruins. Strike up the music for a page of poetry. “The poet speaks syllables of mangled silver.”
