There is a scent of
Cheap whiskey and cigarettes
On his breath.
He, with soft lips that respond
And a mange of tangled hair
Is the trace of sweat on his chest.
He wears two gold circle earrings.
On that signifies what is
And the other for what will be.
He doesnít worry about what was.
He has divorced himself
From others' shepherded pain,
But empathizes with those
He loves.
In his grey eyes is a horizon
That has no vanishing line.
And yet there are those
Who have vanished in those eyes
That have cried for
The death of a mother
And the cruelty of a fatherís lies.
His touch has the power
To electrify
Through the dense mist
That conspires.
He is a shadow of a thought
That rends reality in tatters.
He is an oak framed mirror shattered
Or a rainbow in puddle,
Boot splattered.
In an anthology of verse
He is the line you speak aloud.
He is the known stranger
In a crowd.
He has passed from the world
Of colour, and thru time
On a spiral of thoughts
That cloud the mind.
His mortality rests in a place
Where the heavens as one align.
And with one whispered kiss
Becomes all moments missed.
