De Profundis

(out of the depths)

x

I don’t know why

I feel so sad today

x

The noise above

The coming storm

x

I got some sleep

Am I more aware?

x

It’s Saturday

A day to play

x

Yet I feel leaden

Weighed down with weights

x

The kind that keep us

Sleep at the bottom

x

The sea will take her dead

And raise up at the last day

x

God will reach

Inside the water

x

Pull us up, untie the wraps

The weights will have meant nothing

x

The heavy life

Be done

x

A life with gravity

A dancing partner now

De Profundis

De Profundis

(2019)

 

Four score and seven years ago,

was 1932.  There was a depression

and designs around the world.

Some people were well enough.

Near as I can tell, my father’s folk

were all right with government

positions and a salary.  My mother’s

people struggled on farms in

Tennessee.  I don’t think they were

sharecroppers, though for their

state they might as well have been.

Wringing a chicken once a week

was for a feast of sustenance.

Oranges and walnuts were treats at

Christmas time.
