Daisy’s We Never Knew


stolen fingertips

touched daisy petals

with fingers that broke

on each clasp and pull,

they said it would not

be easy turning events

about,

memory shudders

thoughts fall

scattering upon the ground

being blown into corners

acquiring more dirt,

no matter how much you

wrap in bandages of solace

fractures sometimes do

not heal,

touch was the beginning

and it would be the end,

eyes touching eyes,

soul falling into sinkhole,

wasted words

cascade from sluice mouth,

an artist dwelled in that bony

box painting images of what

should of been,

idyll’s of conscious

creating images

yet she did not see herself

in these potraits,

colors on canvas

dense and thick,

he could step back

let the abyss grow

unbridged ,

already much had been

forgotten

so it became easier,

bourbon in paper bag

chocolates melted in their

box,

flowers awkward now bare

stemmed those daisy petals

scattered with the thoughts,

a restful swell filled his chest,

as he melted into another day.

  1. I love long, skinny poems with plenty of white space. Excellent presentation. I especially like these sections:

    “stolen fingertips
    touched daisy petals
    with fingers that broke”

    “eyes touching eyes,
    soul falling into sinkhole,”

    “bourbon in paper bag
    chocolates melted in their
    box,
    flowers awkward now bare
    stemmed those daisy petals”
