Browning's Soul Sky Parade

Bleeding ripe woman,
wet naked stone;
honey rock dries--
fast star bone.
Dead memories change
just like laid,
wants fly open--
soul sky parade.
Sea moon dreams,
daddy heard stars--
known little face;
death drives cars.

Three in the Morning!
It’s three in the morning, and I’m half-asleep;
Thinking of things’ none of them deep.
Pictures are flashing before my eyes,
Some very pretty, others make me sigh.
