Poetry Break: 3 Poems by R. Gerry Fabian

______

I’ve Seen You Carrying

enough sunshine

to grow an entire

Kansas wheat field.

In disasters,

your special hugs

are a gift glue

patching fragments

together with care.

So many owe you,

banks are envious.

And your program

of no interest,

no repayment

causes skeptics

to pronounce you

a false prophet.

For you to give

those very same,

a patient smile

is so much more

than even my

envy can handle.

 

 

Object Lesson

 

In the fall of the year

she went crazy on me.

The demon ‘change’

grabbed her by the neck

and carried her to the outskirts

of her own possibility.

There were gypsies in the front yard,

a high wire act in the back

and strange women cooked in the kitchen.

There were morality plays

in the hall,

several brokenhearted lovers

howled unrequited ballads

in every bedroom.

 

When I finally cornered her,

it was in the living room

which ironically remained in tact.

“Are all these people necessary?”

I asked her.

“They seem to think so,”

and she smiled the smile

that had me playing all these roles

back when

she was the object

of my every affection.

 

Two Moon Romance

 

You awaken softly

into the intersection

of two opposed moons.

Just before feather songs

and after moonlight,

the scent of

heavy dew honeysuckle

arouses you.

A flash of initial light sparks

as you touch me

and the red breasted trill

becomes our love song.
