Another Mistake

Training your voice, you
had come around to open―
the door of the miasma.
 
The departure stretched
very long. Strange blinkers
were holding the light.
 
A cunning God would
not let you die―
in the trenches of syllables.
 
The moon would withdraw
from the humming night―
for a face-lifting.
 
One blind sun, hurts
the path, where I had
laid the marigolds.

It Was No Magic

When you would be absent,
O Druid, I will know you better.
Time leaps my watch―
I have become blind.
 
It was not enough to
read― that was not written yet.
I am coming down the mountain
to meet the dust.
 
Life was not very kind to me.
Too much undoings had given
me a white sheet to―
write the names of fugitives.
 
I sweep the floor, I wash
the black earth and shut―
the windows. Too much knowing
had made me a dwarf.

An Elegy

The abundance spills on my
torn shirt, when I was
gathering your voice.
 
The affiliated sore
begins to fester in your face―
after flying a kite.
 
It blurs, when you give
a speech, manipulating the lives
of innocent bystanders.
 
When you were heaving the numbers,
I was holding on the poems, like coins
not your paper thoughts.
 
Being blind was not becoming
a Buddha in the garden.
Suicides were increasing every day.

Killing Yourself

It was a flame in the drizzle:
a golden peacock.
I was trying to understand
the Adam and Eve.
 
Between X and Y, my
heliograph stood in the foliage of words.
The hetero factor was generating heat.
 
The mitochondrial Eve will
search the land where the seeds were
dispersed. The swinger was still
active in the dark.
 
You have missed the bomb.
The laser-fed boom landed―
in the crotch of death.
The black dust covered the grave.

Where Dreams Live

Despite the great divide
a dialogue must ensue, between
earth and sky.
 
This was a climacteric change, when
you cannot land on your feet,
after the rainfall.
 
The criminal assaults, rapes
and homicides, bring the species
on boil. The books are our god.
 
You cannot start a group
conflict, skirting the question
of mining the gold.
 
The void within widens, you
will not tell my dreams. For each
star I had picked up a soul.

Kidnapped

Lamenting, what not to―
think. Condemned to burn
the words daily.
 
The dwindling values tear open
the sit-ins of faith. I was
not ready to become a stone.
 
A busy vessel sends daily, the
blood to remote memories.
I look askance at the falling peaks.
 
A dog star following the
heels of master with blinders. No
straight vision. Time was the
mystery of the clock.
 
The moon is nowhere
in sight. I was starving
for a cardinal pain.

From The Edge

You were becoming more prone
to violence, confronting
the moon. Heat was rising.
 
Like a mongrel, twirling
round and round in dirt,
to sit in.
 
It was very dangerous, the
racial thought of eliminating
oneself in the mainstream.
 
A morphogenic change
was visible. Why were you
shrinking in horror?
 
The group pain was getting
a hold of me. I am not
sure, what I will do now.

Picking Up The Threads

No attachment with the
alma mater. You have
eaten away all the grass.
Bounteous breast was empty.
 
Like a nun, dropping
the robes, the moon was rising.
Would you meet her in dark?
 
The night wanted to come
and sit in your lap.
Let us play with cowries.
 
You know my life was
never in the hands of god.
I was a walking tree.
 
So simple were the means
of death. Nobody knew
who was me.

From The Streetlamp

Hits you in the face, 
disseminating the chivalry 
of fragile connotation. 
 
A virtue slips away from― 
your hands, when you think 
what is a pain. 
 
Then the poem starts 
writing about the pen 
which had no ink. 
 
You need courage to― 
smash the mirror which 
was telling the truth. 
 
And the complexity of 
relationship comes, to the fore, when 
the belief was stronger than love.

WIEDŹMOWO

Obyś nigdy nie dał za­po­mnieć, wy­ma­zać na­grob­ka, za­trzeć,
po­de­ptać. Uczy­łeś mnie, ojcze, mil­cze­nia, przy stole dło­nie
czy­ste od grze­chu, chleb. Słowa za­mie­ra­ją wraz z nami,
od­bie­ra­ją god­ność. Mia­łeś za­szcze­pić zwąt­pie­nie,
prze­pro­wa­dzić przez rzekę i tylko nas ko­chać.
 
Sku­le­ni w ra­mio­nach stra­chu pa­trzy­my sobie w oczy,
mil­czysz, a ja nie po­tra­fię. Za­ku­rzo­ne od­pry­ski pa­mię­ci,
smut­na mysz wcze­pio­na w fi­ran­kę i wiatr w ko­min­ku,
sza­le­je moc, dzi­siaj nie zasnę.
 
Ro­dzisz się od nowa, cała ty. Nie­na­zwa­na, nie­od­na­le­zio­na
wil­czy­ca. Matka mo­je­go stra­chu.
 
Przez dzi­kie ścier­ni­ska, ścież­ką wzdłuż ru­cza­ju, umyka
ostat­ni świa­dek, dzie­cin­na wiara w jutro, w za­to­pio­ne
skar­by, w lep­szy ro­dzin­ny dom. Nie chcę już baśni, gdzie
ogniem wy­pa­la­ją tę­sk­no­ty, całe pola płoną, a w la­sach
miesz­ka­ją tylko cza­row­ni­ce.
 
Pra­gnę czu­ło­ści, bez znie­czu­le­nia.
