Acorn: Everything Changes Daily

FacebookTwitter

A response to Yoko Ono’s Sky Piece IV. Her imagination puts me in her place, moves me home, finds me redundant, failing interviews and brings back a memory of someone else I never kissed. Make a list of all the people you never kissed. Reach out to them. Those last two instructions make me feel like i’m getting the Yoko bug.

Kiss

Acorn; Everything Changes Daily

Imagine the world
As I do
Upside drown
Dolphins sky dance
Blackbirds hop in sand
Beneath the sea
Where I sidle sideways
Hermit crab

Back on earth

Walking new shoes
Soft, slow purpose
Not one to leave
An impression
In Interviews
Thoughts wander
Down your corridors
Leapt out naked

My seeds like
Strawberry
On the outside
Of your navel
Orange tanned
Tanned and tired
We lie together
Lie about love

Unsatisfied
Someone missing
We do know
We will not
Continue
Yet we kiss
Like flying dancing dolphins
Just like hopping, wet birds

And I think
Of Christine
Skeletal flaws
Forever limping
Angrily
Through my mind
Just before
We kiss again
This time kiss
Each other
