the prophesy fulfilled
(Alchemy Formula #2)
My head’s finally above water, since
that God almighty Flood when my emotions could no longer contain me.
up ‘til now I couldn’t breathe. but for the painful gills.
it’s true, time heals (breathing deeply) still…
there are doubts, reservations, insecurities.
okay… self defenses! so much trauma from the past.
Man you’re hot. Solarized!
and yes, I have wanted to return to you long as I could dream. wanted
to meet you all the way in rainbow ecstasy. not hold back,
repeat the same mistakes. I do feel wise and powerful …I’ve
learned to exist without you
Cause…let’s face it -
So far Love... We’ve failed.
I just can’t stand rejection - and I know how much you like
to win - but I’m hoping this time you can really hear me,
(ching ching ching the Chinese coins,
the hissing cobras rattle)
How will ancient separation-codes be broken? Stars inside
Eye to eye, facing extinction…will I attack in fear or
know my own reflection? within the changing lines?
“One day,” twin serpents whisper,
letting go, holding on, letting on, holding go! xoxoxoweeeeeeeeee”
Alchemy Formula #2
by the sea this morning, early morning sea,
only crabs and seabirds watching the sun
come up with me, the crescent moon
orb of yellow fire rising in a bubble-blue liquid sky, high, high, high
hopes for us, hopes which set off ancient stirrings…
all those perfectly sealed memories, each a gilded jewel
box containing clues for my
beneath-the-surface-mind. inky patterns tracing our course in prehistoric
life-forms aching to break the hard-edged frames, penetrating fear with
the scurrying sideways. two black gulls soar to silhouette
in flashes of sudden insight I know who I am with you. beyond
existence toward eternal life.
whenever you’re ready for that quintessential
me give you a hug.
