Moonflower Aglow
To Flower
by Michael R. Burch
 
When Pentheus ["grief'] went into the mountains in the garb of the baccae, his mother [Agave] and the other maenads, possessed by Dionysus, tore him apart (Euripides, Bacchae; Apollodorus 3.5.2; Ovid, Metamorphoses 3.511-733; Hyginus, Fabulae...Read More

The Brown Phoenix
Doubly twisted
Hating thine existence
tremors of a neurotic hand
Violent and bitter
Consumed by Ashen sands

Like the phoenix 
I’m reborn
Rebranded
Undoubtedly divine
My wings transform to arms
My beak into lips

I walk amongst the giants of the land 
Hands stretch outwards towards yours
Like a Superman in...Read More

Mere Minutes Into May Sixth, 2019

Heron entombed within b44 man cave
at Highland Manor Apartments sitting
in catbird seat after shower and shave
attuned to silence permeating airwave
wondering what comprises silence music

to these keenly attuned ears as agave
tastes sweet on tongue curious just...Read More

Summer in paradise

We dance on the beach –
aquamarine the ocean
under cerulean sky.
Dresses twirl,
saffron and coral,
colors of joy.

Eucalyptus trees whisper 
faint scents of lemon.
Agave stalks stand tall;
hummingbirds hover
around the chartreuse flowers.

In the orchards,
juicy tangerine promises
gleam amid the leaves.

Later, at sunset,

Confessions of a Cereal Killer
To keep my movements moving, 
I begin each day,
with a doctored bowl of oatmeal, 
bland stuff, some'd say.

But not for me I spice it up, 
creative — like them poets.
(Really! Like the finicky ones,
the ones with all the know-its).

Dear Heron, I promise
HERON SONNET

Betty spoke of god’s face seen through puddles
A mirror on the way from bad to good
In puddles of my overgrown troubles
There is little ebb and flow, air and food

Yet each morning and evening without fail
Fishing for frogs or what...Read More

At Tea Time
For the daughter I love and miss.

I feel it in the morning when I rise to make...Read More

Agave Blues
The band's trumpeting out the Bose 
A dozen red roses for thirteen chicas 
In that old cantina
Looks like one's left cold
But it's colder still out that
Crooked oval door
As Jorge keeps 'em entertained
With his liquid tambourine 

Hey Mr. Cobbler shaker
Play a...Read More

Continuing Job Search Implodes
When I was skinned

I made a little list-

Call it (Something Here) :

It started out,

'I am getting older,

what should I do? '

Like go on the road,

Actually join the Legion or

Take vows for the ashram of Guru SatChitAnanda.

Tequila Tears
Chartreuse waves of ocean,
Grains of ivory shore, 
Drown another memory.
Citrus smothered whore.
Lemon-lime and bittersweet,
Icy hot and burn,
Swallowed pain, lies and truth,
So easy not to learn.
Salty veil of innocence, 
Tattered, torn, a demons kiss,
Virgin, verdant, in twice the 
way,
Intoxicated bliss.
Lick the rim, tongue...Read More

In My Cupboards
There are Jaipur vegetables
in my new home,
Craisins, clover honey,
and maybe twenty different teas.
Pastas, Clabber Girl,
Real Mayonnaise and Agave Nectar;
things with names like
Kashi and Bumble Bar,
with canisters of cocoa, coffee
and Whole Foods Shake
vanilla flavored,
Green Vibrance (what is that?)
and Whey Protein Powder

Mojave Sands
Her touch the warmed delicate Mojave breeze
Whispering love through dulcet Agave blooms

Her bronze skin a perfection of the desert spirit
A hot gossamer breath that intoxicates my soul

Lost in her embrace of the balmy deserts nights
Drawing me to the comfort of...Read More
