My Charger 2013

My Charger

God, you are

My charger.

Plugging in to you

For energy and power too,

I’m tired, really tired; things to do,

It’s likely that I’ve got the flu;

Stomach hurts, the torso.

There’s a light dry cough –

It’s such a drag.

I understand Virginia Woolf.

Fagged out, lagging behind

A sagging and fatigued behind;

I’d say I’m pretty far behind.

I’ve got to find my health again,

So God, my doctor friend,

I am your patient battery,

Heal, charge and then restore me

(when you’ve got the urge and can.)

Too Old To Be Self-Conscious(revised/refined/re-worked)

    Too Old To Be Self-Conscious

 

There is no subject that cannot

Be kicked around

Or talked about;

No theme so ‘sacred’ it must be avoided.

No age when you cannot have passion,

No age when you’re not allowed

To be yourself:

The same in every

                       situation;

When you can’t become a newcomer

To themes that make you joyful,

Things that make you tingle;

There is certainly no age

When you may not be entertaining:

Giggly, extroverted, corny, plainly silly – and a fool.

No age when you must discontinue demonstrating, sharing

What you’ve learned and known;

No age too late to come into your own,

Be known for what you’ve done and do.

If it is not your birthday,

Happy anyday* to you.

 

*(written for a friend whose birthday it was).

Whole Body Sex 2013

Whole Body Sex

Where least is penis,

Where body-whole squirms,

Both affirming and confirming love:

The stem of love,

The germ of love in every cell –

Feeling very, very well indeed.

Not the form-physique that

Weighs.  Not parts –

(They’re only parts)

But heart/soul/mind

Defining something deeper,

Terminating in,

Perhaps

Eternity.

Constant Correction 2013

Constant Correction

You do the same things

Day by day.

Write poetry,

Wash dishes,

Say the very same cliché ideas

And phrases.

If we don’t review, re-listen

Fresh and new,

We don’t correct,

We do not grow.

In fact we shrink.

The trick

Is to correct –

If possible to re-correct:

A constant.

The Cosmic Code: What Can Crack It? 2013

The Cosmic Code: What Can Crack It?

 

What can crack it?

Science or theology?

Scientists plus theologians?

Happy accident –

(What we call chance?)

Intelligent design (with purpose?)

Laws?

You’ve got to ask

Where law itself comes from;

Some that surpassing

Every boundary of the total;

That that tops, outdoes,

Takes in, outstrips and blah, blah, blah…?

Are we so split

In need of faith,

We cannot see a blend of both?

Do we need dogma till it hurts?

It’s probably no, must be blending so complete,

Outclassing us

And all our puny explanations.

Birthday Mine Once Again

Birthday Mine Once Again

Whizzing by,

Drizzling down from nowtime’s sky;

Fizzling out.

Dazing amongst frazzled thoughts –

Puzzling thoughts that buzz around

Those fuzzy feelings

of foreboding

One cannot define or face.

A souvenir.

Day-after’s bland reminder:

Birth dates, time and passing.
