जवान / Young
KK is a good friend and an unbelievable author. I love this poem; you will see it here again on Valentine’s Day!
If you smell happy
I’ll kiss you once.
If you are full of merriment
I’ll kiss you twice.
if you are filled to the brim with a joyful facade
I’ll devour your drink ’til my soul is overcome with delight!
The beauty of a daffodil
lies in my Mother’s hands.
is fast to calm any grief.
Mom’s passing went so fast and so slow
but silently none the less.
Oh God, my dear God, how do I make it through this.
I have my Mom’s hands; they make daisies beautiful.
Away above the clouds she dwelled
until slumber I took.
In her left hand, she grasped a plain, wooden bowl
In her right, an ornate, porcelain vase.
In dark, I slept in terrors as her lengthy arms fell from the sky
Grasping the bowl down my throat, she scooped me out.
Misery, we shared.
But, as the day began to creep back in,
her magical potions of clear, cool water caressed me through with joy and jubilation. Dig me deep and fill me up, my wise, wizened Mother.
Is it the left hand or the right tonight?
Like every night, it’s both.
I drank a cup of poison today
opened her up and slewed her down.
And, all of the folk who wished me harm,
regretted there wishes and were over come with a mass of frowns.
I said I drank a cup of poison today
would have eaten it if I could
But, I knew that drink was all my tummy would take,
Otherwise, gnashing I would.
You drank some, too, my dear ones
And, agreed that it’s better than guns…
except in a true duel￼
Striking matches to enlighten a room
Shadows blur on the wall.
The flame having no shadow
enlightens your mind.
Sheets smell of a two day continuous fart gala
Eeeww!…He flicked a booger on me that he had balled up like a balloon.
I have become a waste can for fresh, newly picked boogers.
How do you get raped while the rapist picks his nose?
You remember the punishment that will befall you next time Mom and dad are away.
Between the tears and his sweat your Tweey Bird nightie is drenched and a full breath is impossible.
He’s so scrawny yet feels like a boulder on your chest.
Rolling off of me, he does a gymnastic type dance and is on the floor.
“Get out of my bed, slut” he remarks in a sneering yet comical way,
but you can still get the hint that he means business.
I was eight.
My heart is just a hot mess!
Why so, you could hardly guess!
Men tore it in two.
leaving me to boo hoo!
Now, I am learning to love me first.
Staring at the paint chips in the ceiling,
Not wanting to move because I’m sick and finally cozy.
I’m starving though.
I stretch and claw my way into a half seated position
My mammoth duo of dogs aid me to no avail.
I lie back down,
Taking a couple of puffs off my vape,
I rev upward.
I’m hungry dammit.
I stretch and wobble,
the dogs think it’s game on now!
I grab a chair and pull myself up.
Thighs of fire get me cleaned up and fed.
But, looking at me in the end, you would never know the fight.
Southern ladies always are presentable.
After all, we tidy our hair and freshen our lipstick,
even if the house was on fire.
I forgive myself for idealizations of holidays pastFor quick crying between wishesFor wiping tears on my pumpkin apronFor missing the harvest moon …
