Hiroshima -A Dress Rehearsal Mon Amour   Leave a comment

There was nothing there

Survivor
Did they make it up

Survivor
Temporary survivor

It goes on

They did not eat
We do not eat

My memory is obvious
Do not deny the chaotic scars
Upon my back
Look upon my skin
It will be nothing
If not open

They rejoiced
The first time

This time
The next time
I am not so sure
I will not be
So sure

Do not make fun of peace
Hiroshima never does

There
Where the crane
Flew no more
Only paper wings
Without heart
Were found

Do you remember the first time, Hiroshima?
Nagasaki doesn’t

We thought we knew
We thought it was the end
Instead
It became a dress rehearsal
An infidelity
An adulteress affair

Rebuild

Learn
Unlearn
Relearn

Forget

Oblivion
Cicadas
Oblivion

The Mark on Your Neck   Leave a comment

You have a mark on your neck
in the shape of the lips of
a lover who left you

again and again

On the back of your clothes
are the stains from the flowers
in lilac and violet of the
trees you laid under each day

You pray the mark on your neck
in the shape of the lips of
that lover you gave yourself to

will soon fade away

But tattooed in your mind
are the memories of hours
spent giving yourself to a lover
that just didn’t care

You have a mark on your neck
in the shape of the lips of
a lover who no longer loves

set yourself free
