Mercurial Emotion (or sometimes it’s better to shut the fuck up)

I’d tell you
how I feel

But I’m not
sure I should

Not because
I don’t know
or don’t have
the words

More because
I fear they’d be

Or worse
I’d have to be
as if I have to feel
the same way

And there’s no way
of knowing
what the next day
will bring

(D. James)

Overweight champions

Their feet shake the ground
and the teeth in our skulls
Their gigantic arms
send dried leaves
whirling around us
Their laughter
booms enigmatic
like deep thunder
Who are they?
Who were they?
Nobody knows
and nobody
really cares
because the first
buds are blooming
and birds are a-singing
and the overweight champions
just become mountains
on the horizon line
very blue
very far away
