dr_con Posted July 17, 2018 Share Posted July 17, 2018 Running with the Dead (This is about) This poem is about Being awkward bookish Frustrated fanciful and Fuming this is about Standing before Audience Trying to speak truth Before you know yourself and the wanting The Wanting for something real authentic but you haven’t separated Intensity from Love Pain from Ecstasy Experience from Responsibility its About finding my friends And favorite authors before dream had edged into waking Wishing For nuclear absolution To be wiped clean To remain comfortable as violence transforms From chronic to terminal about holding onto stories Tight tight their horizons obscured the death Of their species a moment of celebration rather than loss Dumbfounded jogging through An old cemetary I saw our Names repeated An endless Liturgy Echoing the antecedents Of those I thought I knew And started laughing as the two hawks who Landed told me You Know nothing and possibly, nothing too well And so this is about The Hare who was frightened Running and hiding Saying Silly Silly Boy Your world is so fragile Enjoy this hunt chase magnificent Now.
