Houses

The one you were born in is a gas station now, pumps in the playroom, walk-up window for beer. Daddy always drank too much. They paved over the spot where you buried Popeye the parakeet in a shoebox. The place your Mama passed away, neck of a yard, noose-around drive. She hung on his every word. Her...

Re: "no deal is real" (celebrating a golden anniversary)

Bit of a stretch tying the gospel to Woodstock, but I admire the ambition.

White Crow

When I was a kid, the old folks  teased , saying  you could teach  a crow  to talk by splitting the tongue.  You would have been proud the way I didn't cry at your funeral in front of perfect strangers, like you always said. I almost didn't come ,but who could  resist a last look at the pinched face...

Re: Living At The End Of The Road

Billy I had a thought about Native Americans somehow getting a nod in this poem. I recall some of your work referencing that topic. Just a thought. Good as is

Re: Old Number One

Thank you Bob. Pesos and coconuts refers to Santeria. Babilu ( Lucille Ball's husband Ricky Ricardo called him Bobby Louy ) is of Cuban origin. He is often depicted with cigars and offerings of food and money.

I cannot answer about the sacrifice. I didn't think that far through it.

I like it. I would axe Van Gogh.
I would axe " tedious voice" and stop with wind.

Re: Yanar Dag

Thanks Billy. Sometimes, all I can do is write the poem.
I'm OK if it turns out not to be a good poem. Appreciate your feedback.

Yanar Dag

The tongue of my lover parts lips like a prophet separating sea from sea. In Baku, there is an altar to Ahura Mazda, where fire seeps from some old fault of earth. We leave wine made from honey, and a gourd of goat curd. From the time of Alexander they have dragged the dead to the mouth of the mount...
