The Weight of Water

What is the weight of water
by Mike Lee

what is the weight of water
when you have none?
dipping my frozen feet in a waterfall wind
i fell far into a glass jar pool
silence reflected
loss
and gain
waves ripple
memories
while the weaver wind
through frozen lemon trees
bleeds
cows graze
on green landscapes
and thin white lines
painted highways signs
songs of the open road
towing the wrecks of the world
on the ocean’s shoulders
while we dance
naked as the day
we were born
half-crazed
ignoring the shadows
that close
our reflections
behind us
What is the weight of star dust?
dust bowl dreams
filling our bodies
soft fruit
in the orchard
of the infinite

 

LOOK FOR MY NEW BOOK, FEAR coming out soon.

“In the House of Pain, let fear be your friend!”
