IMG_5625 Paper Boats~


 A piece of you is still in me
Still here and it can't be lost
The peace of you is still in me
Still here still with you gone

When loneliness swamped me
Caught out in a paper boat
Still here, your peace bailed with me
That piece we could not drown

When fortune's hunt yields pyrite veins 
When frost collides with hope
It's your peace that keeps me sane
Still here still with you gone

I've been exiled from paradise
Soul's pockets emptied of all that shines
But there's a well worn path to where peace lies
I'm waiting there for you

A piece of you is still in me
I'll wait there for you

Slack-key Apostle




guitar fingers

A guitar in his hands
is an acoustic Pentecost.
Ten fingers turn to fifty
riding steel strings
riding harmonic glory train
through souls
on thrum of hammer-on
pull-off slides.

His fingers spit
cloven-tongued flames
anointing chords
igniting crowd
taking them on a journey
to an absence
a free-falling bliss
into an angelic orgy of notes.

Gun Control #erotic #poetry #NaraMalone



Sexy sexy sexy

Some are flashers
waving their loaded weapon
wide-eyed attention
makes it stand proud

Some prefer concealment
secret power
dramatic reveal
the rush of new respect

But all guns
Want
a holster
a tight embrace

leather, latex, silky heat
whether they ease in
or slam home...

once holstered
velvet squeeze
fingering hair-trigger

then
yes, then
every gun craves
prays for

gun control

On April 16, 2007 a mentally ill boy came within a few seconds of blowing a hole in my life that I would never have recovered from. He came within seconds not once, but twice. I don't have the heart to write about that. If I've crossed a line here, I apologize. I needed to shoot back.
