Mood moving

re: Friday, September 11, 2020 


I'm darting around behind
commemorations hoping to
not be seen.

My trumpet is in the shop
getting waxed and buffed.
I'm not feeling the tune.

A beautiful gray day.
A poem by P.J. Rockwell scrolls by.
I cried. I'll show you where.

What if nothing else ?

This. Only. No more.

A song by Willie pops up in my face.
Something about the ease of older age.
Nothing matters.

Except I cried.
Again.

Had enough.

Blessed.

THE LOST KISS

i approach your face with mine
at that oblique angle indicating
parting friends that kiss the air
next to a cheek turned just so,

doing this with all the passion
of a city clerk filling out a land
deed or transferring some title
that specifically outlines every

boundary between properties.
this seems fair. like the shared
air we breathe in the moments
as brief as comfort allows, but

shallow too just as our mutual
expectations in love assuring
us how safe such conditional
affections can be. yet oh how

i miss the lost kiss, passions
unrestrained as a child's joy
at anything new. or perhaps
this is what we are seeking,

to replace past puberty and
its demands. the unabashed
return to the thrill of playing,
the flutter in the stomach as

the swing hits the peak and
we hope to stay forever like
my lips do now not wanting
to leave your face or its air.

LYRICS

It gets easier, as we get older

It gets easier to say "not today"

It gets easier, as we get older

To say "go away, not today"


I don't have to do

One damn thing

That I don't want to do

Except for missing you

And that won't go away


It gets easier to say "some other time"

It gets easier to tell the world to wait

It gets easier to watch the world fly by

And tell it, "I will catch up, but not today"


I don't have to do

One damn thing

That I don't want to do

Except for missing you

And that won't go away

Except for missing you

And that won't go away
