out of keys

pages turn in blackened winds
time looks on and shares a grin

pinwheel spinning silent songs
of endless nights of endless loss

a tear conceived -unrecognized
a trail of salt on keyboard vines

starlight paints frosted eulogy
white roses whirl in arctic seas

suffer through bluing ecstacy
sparkling pinnacles of heart valleys

skipping stones over diamond shoals
kissing perfumed nape while breaking bones

when {grave} becomes the home
a star paints out of key

    maybe it's just a matter of acknowledging your heart. Quit calling it by other names. (not people, your heart.)

    I have reread this a few times, and it don't seem as sad as I first thought. Know your own heart, Anthony. It reminds of of an old gospel tune, "Up from the grave he arose" yeah, that's what I'm thinking. Excellent poem filled with insights. hugs, Catie
