Our Window Of Yesterday Days — Revisited   2 comments

Our Window Of Yesterdays

Like Cinderella’s
Glass slipper

Only one pair
Had the right fit.

In life’s early years
It took time
Searching
For the right fit —
Trying on
Many different shoes
Before the music
Brought us together.

I
Slipped into you

Tying you
To my body –

Knowing
Only you
Could get so close.

We
Have walked

Many miles
Not always in step
But at the start of each day
You were there.

You
Supported each step
Through the good times
When we danced together
And the bad times
When the music stopped.

Over the years
I knew
Where we were going
You knew
Where we had been
As our
 souls
Have now worn thin —
Broken
Held together by twin
Only now expressing
The secret face
Of our enter selves.

Having been seduced
By a lover’s
Darkest kiss
No longer laced together —
Merely to be left behind
In the window
Of yesterdays
Kissed only
By tomorrow’s sun.

BOOT: Anthropomorphized

There are some simple decisions to make: 
are the eyes on the outside 
or on the inside? 
How thick is the skin? 
What kind of strings are attached? 
How tight are the stitches, 
how sturdy the soul?

Such accidents will determine 
the way it walks through the world, 
the way it holds the memory of mud.

Almost A Line of Poetry

Winter’s trees place shadows on the walls.

Leaves pepper the dirt floors

Below broken rafters open to the sky.

Windows and doors missing from their opening.

An old canning jar, hot-pot and boots

Placed in open window, not by chance.

Someone arranged them —

Almost a line of poetry.
