Hopi grandma sat on the trailer steps

saw the ancient spirits dancing.

Drunk and beat the homeless man cried

“Love is lost before it’s too late.”

Only a fool tries to handle

a mandolin like a guitar.

The lawyer said, with some distaste,

“Please stop filling my case, filling my case.”

In the deepening shade of twilight time

a nightingale mournfully sang.

To satisfy its hunger, the shark

swiftly flew to the depths of the sea.

A rare rainbow rushed to earth

while a million stars devoured the sun.

  1. Your verse reminds of the beat poets, I can see your poem morphing into a story of it’s own. I really like this, Skywalker.
