two faces

published on VerseWrights 05/22/15


two faces facing east and west
two faces looking front to back
two faces coming and going

knowing where you’ve been
knowing where you’re going
unsure of where you are

one head, facing opposite directions

two faces competing for a mind
two faces with eyes that never meet
two faces denying the existence of the other

concealed behind countenance
hidden from the present moment
one face hiding behind the other

one head, of tragedy and comedy

two faces facing north and south
two faces looking up and down
two faces coming and going

knowing a tether to the ground
knowing an infinity in space
unsure of where you place

birth to grave, with no middle

two faces to go the distance
two faces is all you get
two faces and just one neck

under the golden watering can

in blue mountain monastery
mantis sends prayers to the sky
“protect the baby birds”

winds come, to visit chimes
in the ghosts of children
through the twisting leaves,
flashing tops and bottoms

the sky is brightly polished
by the cleansing cold front
and the moist blanket is lifted

the doe wants for wings
just inside the shaded forest
when the hawk is on the ground

green dragonflies loop random
to avoid the largemouth bass,
breaking surface tension
with a splash of death

as hysterical swallows circle
black snake eats the babies
