Deluge Blues

It was full of flowers and bees eating the nectar 
as seconds pass through your skin 
weapons upright held above their heads
their unfurling minds reeling at the task before them
the full edge of their platoon pitched as they were
and a spy discovers the truth that the enemy are
not so bad after all their women all lead to criminals
who’s prowess with deadly force and volanoes and cats
drown out all but the salient storms that flutter under his hat
it is as though the man has to travel the same path every three hours 
a lifetime of jumping out of planes and landing safely somehow
while wrestling their wounds deeply under the round
buried as they were while turning up and around
the wakeful shake of that storm that wreaked the city of towers
the people are tougher than that and snorkled in their living rooms
the screaming of the rich many floors up
won’t be able to get out to buy their weekly sup
or even walk the dog seventy floors down 
the beginning of the event and the frown as the leave 
after a show with many feathers and snow
but nothing much else as the actor was held
in a traffic jam and so we heard the
outpoured heart of the first to come forth
and speak to the crowd start a movement start a walk
until it is brisk and they shout 
as the wind dances ahead

  1. Nice work! Will be glad to follow you and post a suggestion of mine: Do you use sites like, cafepress. com, fiverr? They could be a good way to show your works and to help “remove” stupidity in the streets like headlines on t-shirts, fridge-magnets, cups, etc: My Boyfriend kisses Better Than Yours, FBI – female body inspector, etc. Not everything we see and think of should be about sex, right? It would be much better if there were more nice pictures (even of mythical creatures), good thoughts, poems (from any genre are welcome I guess), etc? I’m allanbard there, I use some of my illustrations, thoughts, poems from my books (like: One can fight money only with money, Even in the hottest fire there’s a bit of water, All the problems in the world lead to one – narrow-minded people, or
    Love and happiness will be around,
    as all the chains will disappear,
    and Mountaineers will climb their mount
    and there won’t be any tear!
    etc). Best wishes! Keep up the good work! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (a greeting of the water dragons’ hunters – my Tale Of The Rock Pieces).
