Claming in Claimed Waters


A stone lies facedown
man, woman, two kids in a face
the waves turn in the dark
and you will be seen
you and me
we will be seemed
as clams
in water claimed
to be steamed in one stolen swollen hour.

Our Summer's sweet succor gives solace
branches enfold a seamed flowering diversion
from the warnings of my tongue
a lonely solo reinforced with rock coast mist.


I stand naked against a weathered wooden cabin
a temple of life
the beginning of goodbye
a temple of rock
with hymnals of time and rime
a temple of glass
I will pray that it replaces lightbulbs.

My friends are mountains of support
I want their ridges edged in rhyme
rimmed in a blue hive of sky
where the blood rush of life's possibilities
is the biggest buzz
where mundane men
small but free
bring the thunder down
freedom's sound
for generations yet to be.
