All Art is Useless.
- Oscar Wilde
Hello Ink (again)Just made a few quick revisions to poem. I hope you like it. Seems made for your "Dark side of the moon".Conrad"Ruby Moon"A shimmer in eel grass is all you really are—September freak! See the toothy eyelook back at me andhow she snorts and trails dayafter wearying day, in that long leggy dragof hers.She's piebald and all that, too,a dragontower to looka good long time,unevenly, over this and that,a too mouthy, magical stony stare.Thanks mostly to the clasps up there, though,loosed somewhere between a full and formless,I'd myself like to tidy the folds—I like my Ruby in lacy folds!As lovely, frail & salty a soleshowgirl of the earth as I'll ever get,& as smart a pair of smart thighs, I still dream Ruby moons.I vow the moon I love's never outdone,either. Notable her work, she sails, too, my lone ship,on a meager, laughably two-thirds sea;she's a triple crown, worn low over the eyes,making her a heart-crusher, as alsoa kind of pale sun spun round and round!Roes below, steam-breathing, lap the dews,fields lie numbstruck, a good long timewithout quinoa, and no passion fruit either forthe jacob sheep, gonegone under her passionless night, scatteredfrom dale to brook, north & south.By the sharp-edged horns, I know all too wellthat touch, anywhere,of the panting pale-sun queen looking for her sheep!So stands the heart, once fulland feels down below, withering hourly at the edges,like an eel-grass moon (half-rotund),gritty to the core, & with two long powdery handsfor hacking fields and roes. © Conrad DiDiodato 2006
