we watched old movies in the hay loft while the chickens slept


Barn Door, View From Within

mea vitae 
peregrinum spiritus
lacertus manus
scriptum 
cum gallinis






strange upper hand 
human guile bands 
take to dancing 
with all my poems 
like birds taking 
to the old barns 

I sat tuffet-ed 
curd-ing afternoon 
churning a burning 
every arm learns 
a milk fed lassie 
scented with her work  
indeed turns me on 

fantasy, a needed  
tranquility chord-ed 
all the white keys you knew 
take just so much trafficked 
or fall asleep never 
remembering that one 
time you wrote down old poems 
left a notebook nearby
