The Outside Glory Of The Story Within

Posted in poetry, teaching with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2009 by Keith Alan Watson


In remembrance, we harvest the touchable

With all due respect, we negotiate the unspeakable


The fruits of our labor produce the cream of the crop:

those who question every law set in stone

who ponder over the face value of moral obligations

who are never satisfied until they go below the surface

who step outside the ring of glory with an act of self sacrifice

in order to find the story within

and the legend they may one day become


The Rotten Cycle Of Life

Green bananas today

Yellowing tomorrow

Freckled skin peels away

Bruises show the sorrow


The fruit reveals the call

No time left to borrow

The sun slips down to fall

Night ascends to mellow


Way Beyond Terms

Posted in poetry with tags , , , , on February 23, 2009 by Keith Alan Watson


Excess time limits

Zeroes claim sufficiency

Always more to gain


Speed loses it’s thrill

Passing belies danger

Too slow to fly right


Leftovers with bite

Words left out two nights to spoil

Lines become homeless


Meanings foster mold

Language to languish over

Properly kiss mine


To the bitter end

Middle ages fly faster

Hellish days drag on


Spread the crap around

Bottom foundations in growth

Tree’s sanctuary


Terms slip on sweet fruit

Wear them in then wear them out

Face a toothless grin
