Holler, Wild Rose!

from a
cistern, beneath the city
she
draws deep in the washroom sink

she draws deep, from the harbor

plunging her hands
steeping
the water
and her countenance is
radiant,
her countenance is
bright
it was her countenance
that drew back the shades
that
pulled back the cold slate greys

from my morning eyes

so
crestfallen, and exhausted
long
commute is so frustrating
lines
of people, intersections
inching
forward, so disheartened
missed
appointments, beating
deadlines
lost amidst a sea of
brake
lights
disappointed
waiting for
the good things in my life to
come
yet on she races up a
highrise
stretching her fingers,
scaling bridges
on she rages
and
her joy ties me down to the
pavement

I’m pulling my visor
down, yes
I’m pulling sunvisor
down
she breaks her mirrored
grace up in my windshield

I’m a
weak man, I can’t tame it
I’m
only one man, I can’t contain
it
I’m a poor man, I can’t claim
it
I’m a fool and I can’t explain
it
(but I can see for miles and
miles, sweet smile)

Lookout!

Holler for my Wild Rose!

like
an amplifier should
keep pushing
soft waves
straight down my
hallways
Sorriso Dolce!
sweet
travelling smile
