EDENBRAY in EXILE – 2* – selfie

‘Edenbray in Exile’ OUTTAKE

… … …


… … …

Entangled, overwhelmed, a picture in mezzotint

Dove grey – bordered in the usual way

Of men and women and games they play

Of piano-moods or senseless abandon

Where the wicked transgress and say it is not so

^ ^ ^

The leaf-lawn green and sweet, a mothers smile

We don’t only talk in words, language, gestures,

Mock perception or a hand to trace your face

The given moment sentient in the mind’s eye

Not deep or dark but tangled like wool

^ ^ ^

And in one moment, mounted on horses

Dressed in flesh, a mountain above easy feeling

We shake ofF the intrigue, guile and terror

And hold each other closer than our mother

Bite, scratch and scrawl passions sanction

^ ^ ^

If lonely guilt were left in the darkest room 

And the strangers we become, last years Kodachrome

Lying in a box, a cell of transparency

Every word full, close-ups, vivid pictures

And our honest selves introduced as friends.

^ ^ ^

About edenbray

I've always enjoyed writing and that is all I want to do... .. . I’m not sure why I ever stopped, was it 9/11? .. . edenbray is born ugly, wet and covered in blood, mucous and bodily functions ~ the effluence of my short life .. . I am a Writer and Artist since 1966 - I'm now an avid Blogger ~ I write lots of poems, written essays, articles, reviews, opinion + comment .. . I have had many poems selected for Anthologies of verse and recently have published many of my poems in 24 themed booklets ... please ask for details and join the shebang by leaving me a marker with a 'like' or comment for my ego and encouragement :- thank you so much for listening ~ edenbray
