A Poor Man’s Song

Though fearfully pierced

And beginning that

Never-to-end fall

I sing joyously:

Of hope,

Of love,

Of my lady.

Surely someone, somewhere

has heard of a story

In which the

Head of a queen

Is turned by a

Poor man’s song

And the death of a pawn.

You Should Know …

Two days ago –

Fierce and fast –

Blue electricity, drama and hazard

Climbed blink-blink fast

Down greased ladders between

Sky’s undeniable singularity and

Our different-degree backgrounds.

We rolled the friendship dice, folded paper,

Measured the paces of bishop and tower,

Sheltered under the proud, peaceful wings

Of history’s graceful war birds;

We laughed happily together at

The ice and fire we walked through …

And we did it with spirits high!

At the end of some games,

You should know,

It’s possible for everyone to win.
