a single glance
a sudden dart of pain
ambush, whirlwind
a plain without a feature, bare and brown,
no blade of grass, no sign of neighborhood

nothing to eat and nowhere to sit down,
i don't know where i am or what this place can be,
the heroes who do not bear witness
the flowers of blood fade and scatter in the empty wind
think of cinemas, panoramic sluts
with multitudes bent toward some flashing scene

search the dark, the silence
and the shadows
dark sleep in a huge landscape
of waves taking the earth

there are two trees left
a sycamore and a weeping willow
i'm trying to figure out
which one is more uplifting

tumbleweeds, dry sands,
harsh sun are punishing you
tomorrow's kisses will erupt in your ear
feel the flame stabbing your bones
driving toward the nerve

use bandages with careful positioning
add guilt, fear, self mutilation
light a fire, coal, gasoline,
throw your worries away

just worry about
the blood on the sand
the nails in the man
the headlights of a van
the thorns of the land
the paupers of grand
the doves of steel hands
the tears of swollen glands
the bruises of black old bands

a single glance
a sudden dart of pain
ambush, whirlwind
hold on tight

I catch butterflies with my eyes
lacing them in a web of mystic order
it is natural
we are all gods
we are all demons
tomorrow the sun will rise in the west.
Welcome home.

Hi,

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.

Melissa K. W.
