Dorothea Lasky: Three Poems : : Lemon Hound

PEOPLE DO REALLY BAD THINGS

People do really bad things
But I don’t pay attention to most of them
I knew that Alex was my real friend
When he told me the one night
That true love can not be calculated or contained
Despite the orb of blue fire
I always hold right up to my lips
It is hot and earthy
And full of red and green stars
But the one I love is not a plant to grow you in
The one I love goes driving thru the streets
My true friends have always been poets
Laura, and Eric
And the other people
The endless need of people crushing everything too, the sublime
Most of the time I am not the coral
Most of the time I am ashamed of my happiness
But that’s because most of the time I do it in private
But not when my true love comes around
Then I do it everywhere
There is no place I would not be willing to make my true love sing
Even on the mountain where the seaweed is upturned into the heavens
Even then I would take his gentle hand with me anywhere
Even then I would not forsake anything he’s done
Even if he did really bad things
I’d dive into the rich waters to help him

Seven Poems by Barbara Moore Vincent : : EOAGH

Ninety

It all depends on where you are

And what you want to be.

Mostly people get pretty wound up

And ready to take off

But there are lines ahead of them.

They are not really lines

But indications of experience

That might be quite interesting

For those in line behind them.

“I guess you are still in line,” I joke with her.

Yes, I guess you can say that!
