For Aralee - Jim Palmarini

Bolt of lighting
string of pearls
swatch of black
you your hands
all awash and affront
of the noble word
what did you expect
going at it like that
would get you anywhere and
now you’ve gone and taken
leave with your voice
trailing off and rising up
like it always did
and now you goddam never will
stop getting into my head no
not likely not now not
evermore June twilights
will have no peaches
no reading no you. Just a
too bright and sunny melancholy and
I’m not having that shit. So go on
and get your wise ass up on the stage
seer madonna piper songstress
woman for the ages I
have a poem to pick
with you wanna
make something beautiful
dear friend
