Dark Water

.

Dark, the bats,

say it’s dark.

And it is dark,

even for bats.

\water/

How?

Where

is

the water?

Do you hear?

I hear water.

Which way?

So hard to pinpoint

where the sound

is coming from.

The little girl in the yellow rain slicker

whispers to us as surely as can be

the water is there

and there it is,

water.

Now close your eyes

and your mouth.

They

cease to care

about the dark.

playing with words again

Scream no one can hear

Come undone no one can see

______________________________________

Dream screams; no one hears,

they’ve lost their ears.

Stab wounds, there is no blood,

no scars, no love.

_________________________________________

Why, why, why.

Do you think you

need to know why.

____________________________________________

Spread your arms, flap and run,

perhaps you will take flight, like a penguin.

_________________________________________________________

I am a balloon. I float above the town, a renegade.

_________________________________________________________

 

Beer, wine and a bottle of whiskey.

Marlboros, a joint, just you and me.

__________________________________________________________

TODAY-RIGHT NOW!

I HATE LIFE-

SORRY BUT IT’S THE TRUTH.

_____________________________________________________________

No smiles, just tears, no hope, just fears. No, no, no, no, no…
