Of Invitations

31 July 2011 § Leave a comment

at times
one must decline the most honorable
and accept the most radical
Of Invitations;
and here/now i present these examples:

among stately towering family
(notquite oldgrowth)
–cousins, at least, if not siblings–
whose welcome/smile was
of course(emphatically confirmed by beetles/walkingkisses)
but to stay
would be to
face tall expectations,
like marrying into the Amish.


before fluttering alluring depth
and lovely drifting woodbodies,
oh!greentree/mountain/sunshine peak-surrounded;
that laughing clarity-blue
Must Not
be refused
(to gaze is to commit)/and worth every shiver.
