Get ready for Y2k

a cloud bursting shadow
drove us from the blanketed field back to
camp pioneering back up through dark trails of
woods across a clearing and fallen logs fitting our
selves between a couple of dried snags we barely
slipped through the greasy darkness until we
found insulation enough to scratch out a
swaddling nest while busy hands &
fingers began their trail sparking
inside the pink panther electrical
system tightened lumps mounded just
out side the water hose neck I never thought
to notice if any invasion of crafty eyes while white
rain dripped along the wet wresting clothes line then
reaching over to check the oil for a night of steamy
cruising only moments away but not unexpected
furry rode in over pulsing sudden eruptions
squealed and gasps lost control in an
up roar scrambling back to eye
quaking arch lifting and
thrusting to such
sparkles of skin lean
and oily shattered whitish
drops raining on gleaming tips over
each otherís intense devotion settled into
a bearable idle to a warmth like furry whiskers
trembling in rhyme we must have scurried over the
moving hillscapes unknowing which no longer slept
through the thunder we built a shelter where we could
flee different shadows through the night live a couple
different lives fantazise in the same span of time just
existing in a spin of torrents cozying up to the
belief each other built containing
explosives while each
maintained this
gloryious system
of flashing back filing through
the darkness reclining to the knowledge
that there was enough fuel shines to carry us
past any Y2k glitch plus these stars would
certianly be visible long after that
anyway yet just down the...
etcetera, etcetera.




 If I could paint a portrait, of this life in which I've led, and somehow sketch a story, of the visions in my head, I'd start out with a canvas, stretched tightly in a frame, and in the bottom corner, I'd leave room to sign my name. (Michelle A. Bartley)
