    MEMORIES OF A BLUE BUNGALOW

    MEMORIES OF A BLUE BUNGALOW  

     

    Blue bungalows in a row,

    or a walkup flat where the

    spiral staircase descends.

    Her memory is etched on rice paper

    and folded just so, bound with

    ribbon then hidden from view .

     

    So many summers have come and gone;

    so many so that winter hurries along.

    Diminished days followed by dark;

    still the wind carries her memory.

     

    Town houses side by side; windows

    and doors, who hides inside?

    For my eyes are dim, and my wide grin

    has been wrapped in cellophane

    and cast aside.

     

    I clutch this rusty key that once

    unlocked my heart. It bleeds its

    brown -red blood, drop by drop,

    pooling at the feet of my lifeless

    form; but still her memory lives on.

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
