Untitled poem
(for Mikale)

sun01_400_05If you were mine to hold and cherish,
  I would want you to teach me about the world of love.

Ghost – I have an older
  woman’s body. Now, loosely
translated, this means,
  (smile lines, dark circles under the eyes, stretchmarks and wrinkles)
Ghost of the Cape.
  Mikale, you’re a ghost
that haunts the coast of the
  Eastern Cape. Everywhere you’ve been, you’ve left a trail of broken hearts.

You’re a painter or
  you have a painter’s soul.
You’ve had girls and booze
  and women coming and going throughout your life.

If you were mine to hold and cherish,
  I would want you to teach me about the world of love.

While I, on this
  voyage, on the other hand,
sculpt and inherit
  words out of nothing but blue air.

Ghost – I have an older
  woman’s body. Now, loosely
translated, this means,
  (smile lines, dark circles under the eyes, stretchmarks and wrinkles)

Through the rain
  I can see stars.
Through the rain.
  I can see the stars in your eyes, as clear to me as day.

If you were mine to hold and cherish,
  I would want you to teach me about the world of love.
