i'm reposting this (written in 2015) for two friends mentioned in the poem. it really is ever-changing. i wish they were still in my life




ever changing

 

 

 

 

i love 

 

cats

friends in far places

dancing

smiling at the sun

running

 

closing my eyes at night

seeking resolution

 

parks

families celebrating occasions with piñatas

red checked table cloths over picnic tables overflowing with food and drink

all of them bad for you

 

words in the right order

  

lying on the beach on a sunny day

yellow and white striped beach towels

listening to the surf

watching surfers and pelicans

shore birds dodge waves

espying a porpoise or seal

 

tea with honey

 

all kinds of meat

except chicken and beef and lamb and pork

all kinds of seafood

except lobster and shrimp and mussels and clams and oysters and et cetera

 

fage yogurt with golden raisins, blueberries, and granola 

veggie burgers with everything 

watercress and morels

fresh 

from the spring and woods

especially if my dad surprises me with them

 

helping him build walkways 

with rocks he brings back from the fields and streams

 

that he sings so very, very badly while he works

 

winter

 

blondes, brunettes, red-heads

vixens with black hair or no hair from chemo or choice

a quiet girl from the north country

 

möbius strips

 

miley cyrus's version of lilac wine

lou reed's perfect day

the second movement of brahm's requiem

sunhae im and nikolay borchev

singing zerlina and masetto's duet in don giovanni

 

a kind word from anybody

 

the poems of rosalia de castro

han shan

writers on poetbay

 

imagination
