Winner: Poem of the Week: December 19, 2004

Caught in a tsunami;
tangled up in you.

Yeah, I know better,
but better don't know me.
So I'll sit a spell
and kiss your eyes.

The lights are bowing low,
cold and huddled,
'neath the moon.

Oh, sweet lady,
your lips are sweet dust;
the stuff of angels.

I know my limits,
but limits don't know me.
So I'll wait a while
'neath your branches.

Long dark curls,
skin like porcelain.
Lips like flame.

Damn, I'm in love again;
tangled up in you.

Good stuff Quiet. Particularly liked the second and fifth stanzas. I know better,... but better doesn't know me. Very cool ideas and imagery in the whole thing though. Bravo!

...Yet the stones remain less real to those who cannot
name them, or read the mute syllables graven in silica.
To see a red stone is less than seeing it as jasper—
metamorphic quartz, cousin to the flint the Kiowa
carved as arrowheads.
To name is to know and remember
