Richard Pierce – author, poet, painter



immoderately responsible
she let him stay too long
where he didn’t belong
with consequences three
trimesters later unexpected
but not impossible
just in time for a christmas
not yet invented
for the world of their posterity

years later another feast
laid on for those yet to come
candles and chocolates
eggs and expectation
resurrection and disbelief
a succession of miracles
the world now abuses
and organises

she never intended

Another long week. Thank God for friends who seem to circle in the same orbits and rhythms and creativity – you know who you are. There are always words and invisible bonds. And music…

    circling is somehow loaded with optimism… sometimes 😉

      especially if the circles (though they are strictly speaking ellipses) move through different places.
