Poem # 1:

A Poem for Stayers

I want to stay
Squat, full, immense
Full of the broad wealth of age and joy and
Ripe, Sweet Life.

I want to leak
All over the space I occupy
Squishy, syrupy flood
Oozing out of every pore and
Onto everything in sight
Liquid, solid
Life

I want to be the thing you love
More than you love yourself

So that when you are gone
I am still here
Your memory stuck to me and
Leaving the stain
Deeply on the land



Poem # 2: Do Not Concede

Your self
Exists
Do Not Concede it
Then tune your ear
To hear
Your self
Over the din
Under the chorus
Around the edges
Just outside the point of focus

Unfix your sight
Do not concede the
Frame of Reference
Regain your perspective
By blurring the one you inherited
From your Masters
Do Not Concede
Your self

The familiar
Is not the thing you have been forced
To accommodate
Do Not Concede It
To the practical, sensible thing
Listen to your Self
It is old beyond age
And longer than length
It is your lasting, essential tie
To God

Do Not Concede
