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

.
