The Archeology of Her Smile

The Archeology Of Her Smile Poem

” I love you “

These words that he said

A thousand lifetimes ago.

A thousand women weeping

A thousand flowers burned.

The poem,

Just written for someone, somewhere

Once.

Beloved

A wife

A daughter

A love.

About the archeology of her smile,

About her hidden voice,

The joyful noise of her child

Or just the way she laughed,

Poised, in the mirror

Or running thru the grass

Or thru the fields

Of forever.

For these words

Were said, were written

 A thousand lifetimes ago,

A thousand women weeping

A thousand flowers burned.

The poem,

Just written for someone, somewhere

Once.

About the archeology of her smile,

About the way she loved

About the life she lived with you

About the world she touched

For this is her true story

Written in the voices of each life.

Civilization, man or woman

And of their rise or fall.

For without her or her

Beauty, her eyes, or her smile?

Why there would be

No “his-story” ever written

At all.

Marlowe vs. Shakespeare: Wrongful Death and Double Identity

IN THE COMPANY OF RILKE …


IN THE COMPANY OF RILKE.

Rainer Maria Rilke was a giant of twentieth-century writing who is quickly becoming a visionary voice for our own time, captivating readers not only with his brilliance but also the way he boldly addresses the “deepest things.” Speaking through his own contradictions and ambivalences, he gives readers a profound understanding of the complex beauty of the human existence.

In her new book, In The Company of Rilke (Tarcher/Penguin, on sale Nov 10), bestselling author and spiritual leader, Stephanie Dowrick, invites the reader into the transcendent and piercingly beautiful world of the much-loved poet, and reveals how we can connect with our inner life through his poetry.

IN THE COMPANY OF RILKE …

A 21st Century Dirge For America

A TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY 
DIRGE FOR AMERICA


Another dead song
for a dead man
a dead art in no
man’s land.


“CENSORED”

For Being REAL

As they stop the world,
Judge and destroy
all that which they
cannot make

Or see.   


FOR WE THE PEOPLE BELIEVE IN

 
Anarchy Archery Douche-Beggary
38 Flavors & Fifty Stars Officially

And nothing more.

For to say the least  it’s your
Apathy Banality Absolutely
An Analogy, Abruptly. America So
Blow Me
From Sea to Shining Sea &
Lovingly Bitterly Swallow Me


In Poverty

“Amen”

Or ?
 
You can
 Literally Be, Continue
 
In The Middle Or
See-Dream Of
Vespucci, Liberty With Symmetry
Synchronicity or Being


True.

So Are We Truly  Free? 

Re-discovered or The Undiscovered Country
Land Of The Brave
That Has Never Truly Ever Seen

DEATH.

“Up-Close” 

So America I ask you beg you 
Please;


To 

Tax Me Take Me Fuck Me
Love Me And Then Silently Leave Me

 
In The Dark.

But Please,
Don’t Use Me, Tread On Me
Abuse Me or Ever Break My Heart

“Again”

For Now
Lady Liberty is walking the streets
& Looking To Make A Buck, & Is  
Saying  “Heeeeeeeyyyy Chhhhiiiinnnna”

How Are You?

While, like an angry lover, 
Jealous, she watches your 

EVERY 

“Move”

And Domestically, Majestically
And Carefully

She says ever so softly;
 
PAY UP.

So,

Democrat Republican Soccer Mom White or Black
Welcome to the Homeland The Tea Party & The 
Land Of The Numb

WHERE WE THE PEOPLE, ONCE BELIEVED

Once …

BELIEVED

In This, This World 

 IN FREEDOM


And Not Merely

The Dead Sound, Dull Thud Of It,
As It’s Soul Is Bleeding Out.

(Don’t Tread On Me)
