Variations Of Grief
excerpt from a small collection of my poetry with the working title : `It is so hard to say I love you these days `and `aborted photographs never fade `.



the bump on the page is a dead songbird




That left of you now

The letter around your waist

Will make you never sleep again

- rage : refuses to be dressed

THE SHED


the shed

---------------- grass ---------- soft wind ----------

breeze
grass--------------------- growing tall----------------tall--------

the path -----------------------grass
behind the shed
dead
wood piled--------------------------------dead---------grass----

the shed -------------------
a shadow
the stone

-----
beneath the stone
----------------------------her grave----------








This garden laughs

barefoot

tiny footsteps

curled roots

behind the bangs

(she laughs)






__

- this is how we meet

dressed in white paper

populated by the absence
of each-other

only the weight of our waltz

has an echo



the bump on the page

is a dead songbird

"beneath the stone ---------her grave----------"

Sounds like a few of My X's - all dead now !!

Well I am such an old bugger - Even Hitler could not kill me !!

i must confess it took me several minutes to recover after reading your poems...particularly this one...this is such a new vision of poetry for me! YOU are such a new vision for me...bow down, you are more than a poet, you are a true artist of word and shape!
