All The Suns, So Far / new poems 2011

All The Suns, So Far

I never saw
any of it

The two broken baby teeth lying bloodied in a snowy road

A red balloon slipping into the sky from a little boy hand

My misguided drives through a haze of chemical hubris

Leaving childhood behind for an entwine of lust's legs

A grey wedding day masquerading as a lasting love

The pale saint of me fading like an old photograph

Her saving grace offering more than moments

The wilderness of days becoming a decade

A blessing of a beautiful boy for us both

The light above, upon wide open water

Promises never made but still kept

The changing shoreline below us

The sky without rain for now

Whatever is yet to come

All the suns, so far
