Still Life with Bottles,Flask,white cup – Van Gogh
~
gone are days
when I bottled feelings
~ dues fully paid
I know no longer
bottle
~
life gouges
daily
indiscriminately
in schools, playgrounds
houses of worship
~
countermanding
I uncork healing
laughter gently
in measured
sprays
~
flask(ing) hot cold
transitions eschewed
evenly spreading jams
of joy on bread butter
mornings
~
atrocities
fill with infinite grief
blood no longer boils
hands simply cup themselves
for succor, healing, logic
~
compassion
now supersedes
passion
laughter
continuously spilling
~
