A stone on the bed of a river
Sometimes I feel like a stone on the bed of a fast-flowing mountain river: namelessness, immobility, contemplation;

nor past nor future
instantaneous rapid 
stream of illusions...

Angel dances by the pond
Like fairies all night long
Music playing
All voice chanting
Moonlight shinning as they go along
Singing the night away 
Sending good dreams all night long....

Gardens Above Ground
are decorated
with daisies.

The perfumed 
hang like plants.

above ground. 

They are seen
in New Orleans,
not elsewhere.

Blackberry Picking
I see grandmother's bonnet moving above the bramble.

My mother tells me not to keep eating berries. 
My little pail fills so slowly.

mouth drips purple juice
clothes torn, skin bleeding, itching
spill berries again...

Dawn's rays break starred skies
I wake to find the bed cold
You've already gone.

I still feel your lips
Pressed hot against my shoulder
Stunned there is no mark.

Tangled hair is combed
Each knot a mark of shared lust
Gently tease them out....
