"hope" a poem



I search the clouds for a wrinkle of rainbow

Some sliver from which to wring a droplet of hope

Give me torrents give me sky fall

But I will pull your tongue

Till you spit that color thread.


Perhaps the sleek seal shivers the rain from off her fur

My parchment skin stains and scars with each dewdrop

I’ll weep blood for you

My eyes will sink pupil ink in words to peer

Forever out to my distant lovers – my beloved readers

These words my very view of love for you

For here in this place there is no color sign

Upon which to gaze

My eyes and blood are incarnated as book

My love is for you

This is my one hope.
