AGING POETRY

ICONOCLASTIC ELASTIC
.
Our ceilings fell
walls gave way
the roof could not forget;
the chimney’s down
the clown was smoking
an unfiltered cigarette
.
Gods will survives
conspired constitution
dreams will pay the debt;
save the golden calf
take the sea away
screed the alphabet
.
fog horn breaks
into the window
keep your memories lean
lightning strikes a pose
on a poets matchbox
always more than seen
.
the rafters purged
floor joist clashed
the steeping cellar turned
the garage is found
the car idling for
a fleeting moment learned
.
Oh
God will contrive
desired desecration
dreams increase their bet;
melt the golden calf
take the world away
deed the alphabet
.
walking these wires
outside this window
angels scent of wintergreen
lightning strikes deep
twice more in succession
fog horns never seen
.
wood blows smoke
into the rainbow
helicopter stirs us bare
I was alive
time drove by shooting
angel lights this final prayer
.
God will revive
inspired indecision
dreams both laughed and wept;
stone the golden calf
hate the hearts replay
bleed the alphabet
.
