A Question

A voice said, Look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth. 

(Robert Frost)

Beach House

High up below,
deep after the waves,
behind a silver jazz.
Hello, afar,
right next to aspects,
you, a sound.
Fifteen green cellophanes,
burnt for good,
a sentinel for my childhood.
A thousand smaller waves
hit the ceiling and us,
on a pile of portraits.
The seagulls, 
I wish they were seagulls, 
lock our eyes,
far off the beach house.
It’s there, a chrome moonshine,
a radiant face,
next to me in bed.

Moon Fear

Afraid of the moonlight
Illuminating reptiles
But interesting fears
Never go out of style
A modest breeze
Runs over my cheeks as reality does so
A maze of dark corners,
one or two serpents, to and fro
You have lost, a thousand years before
When the venom strikes
You secret knock, at my door.

Afraid of the moonlight
Impersonating fiction
It strikes me as a faux pas
As trickery, suspicion
My wobbly gaze against your steady punch
My love for you a poor detection
An easy thought, a hunch.

Afraid of the moonlight
Illuminating me
Well, this too shall pass
You must simply count to three.
