Red Love Lady

as walking in dreams
i give the impression of
someone seeking truth
ancestors
wildfires
heroes on the run
voices that are
atoms from another life
not always but 
sometimes, yes, a 
voyage of cruel contemplation
	red love ladies
	city boys &
	space-age whiskey
silence is the universe in a bottle
(& here they are as if
made in miles)
tongue-tied & alive
& loosely seeking 
contact

  1. Je suis d’accord avec naivehaircuts. C’est un poème fantastique, les mots se déplacent sensorielment avec une telle facilité et grâce. Il a un grand contrôle sur la voix et le ton et est si efficace pour transmettre son point. Tu es une poète fabuleux.

    Joyeux samedi, L. Méfiez-vous de l’ange exterminateur!

    • Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed the poem. The line you pointed out, I think, can mean many different things at once (i.e., that the silence speaks to us, is imminent, the power of the universe taking shape), but it can also mean nothing at all. The kind of line that’s there to ignite the possibility of new meanings. Thanks for reading!
