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
and gain
waves ripple
while the weaver wind
through frozen lemon trees
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
ignoring the shadows
that close around
our reflections
behind us

what is the weight of stardust?
is it dust bowl dreams?
filling our bodies
like so much
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!”
