you might have woke
hearing the clink of stirred coffee
smelling the vague smoke
last bit of an old joint
never knowing
the youth
old age
in your kitchen

stop messing around and get to work

Matters of Life and Death by Marietta Calvanico

great great piece of work



Matters of Life and Death by Marietta Calvanico.


sipping the Tyrconnel single malt and writing on a freezing new England winters night.


bed poem yesterdays

Effortless rising

After effortless sleep

After hours of love

Still in each others arms

Not needing to shower or brush teeth

Kiss & Kiss & Kiss


Bed Poem Today


angels sang

in his head

as he lay

across the aubergine and green bed


Sometimes the sun

danced elliptical

 edging his cup

fingers tap tapping

cosmical coded eclipses


Sometimes the day

just began this way

open windows

white  blinds

even traffic softer

as if the dust of dark ages

shed and unknown

precisely the  time of his life


with random

ice across the road

fields brown tipped golden grasses

spread occasionally into figures

something unnameable does pass

soft light strands of sunlight green

snow dropped jewels secret circles

cast beyond mere mortals grasp

Bridget’s fair sweet token

The Day It Didn’t Snow

The day It didnt snow

Rita asked me to tell

her about swimming

in the halls

But my mind was on

other things

Crunch the candie

in my mouth

tiny pieces of pain

on my tongue

satining my

mouth in

at the red kitchen door

on blue broom sticks

did a magic spell and then there were 6

At a quarter past eleven

Did a magic spell and then there were 7

on a green metal gate

did a magic spell and them there were 8

making spider wine

did a magic spell and then there were 9

chasing grumpy ladies and cross face men
