Poem for Today


In this land,
Obliterated with light,
So bright and numbing and pure,
Feeling like sound,
Destructive with its vibration,
Shaking the strips of my bones.

In this place,
She gives me colors,
White, searing, sizzling.

A flash of burning joy when we love...
Black, never ending abyss when she leaves.
That is what stays with me.

Opening of a shaft, cut into the earth,
Whose end is dizzy-deep.
I feel it at night, becuase the entrance is even darker,
That’s what makes it stand out.

She colors my life.
Now all the shades,
They are mixed,
Scrambled, and dry cracked in the sun,
Like my old paintbox.
