you might have woke
slightly
hearing the clink of stirred coffee
smelling the vague smoke
last bit of an old joint
invisible
morning
ghosts
never knowing
daylight
fled
the youth
fleeing
from
old age
midnight
in your kitchen

stop messing around and get to work

Matters of Life and Death by Marietta Calvanico

Matters of Life and Death by Marietta Calvanico.

nice


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

Again

Bed Poem Today


Sometimes

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

Little witches

One little witch

with bright yellow shoes

did a magic spell and then there were two

in a white birch tree

did a magic spell & then there were three

3 little witches

at the red kitchen door

did a magic spell and then there were 4

4 little witches

sharpen  silver knives

did a magic spell and then there were 5

5 little witches

on blue broom sticks

did a magic spell and then there were 6

6 little witches

At a quarter past eleven

Did a magic spell and then there were 7

7 little witches

on a green metal gate

did a magic spell and them there were 8

8 little witches

making spider wine

did a magic spell and then there were 9

9 little witches

chasing grumpy ladies and cross face men

did a magic spell and then there were 10

with their little black cats

did a magic spell and next Halloween they’ll all be back!
