Farewell Children

 

 

As the faces disappear

the eternal memories begin:

Of crabgrass children

who flower in summer’s heat

and are blown toward tomorrow

by the west wind.

Of spider web girls

who balance threads

waiting for love to stick

or snap.

Of granite gruffs

who go as they came

and are never missed.

Of blacktop boys

whose headlight eyes and piston hands

never found the exact timing.

Of insecure jesters

who knew all the words

to obscene songs but

never the meaning.

and

Of the two or three unicorns

thought to be extinct

who reveal their rare magic

to a select few;

share a special mystery

and like all the others

are too soon – gone.

The Crazy Man

 

 never ever begs.

 He speaks religious tracts

 in mystical tongues

 that once

 would have made him

 a soothsayer.

 The nether zone

 tempts him often

 but he is so far gone

 that those

 who glare and scold

 secretly

 desire his immediate

 moment.
