{May 5, 2013}   Eggshells And Pomegranates

persephone
exposed and raw and down to the bone

or the heart of the matter

in either case

a low steady buzz

and a drop or two of fire

it’s the combination

and the natural order of things

the reason that happened first and then the other after

after the fall comes the call to order

because everyone knows there must be order

sometimes

not always but sometimes

so follow the call but try to be still

for awhile

just as long as it takes

and do not move until the ride stops

or the instructions have been written down

whichever keeps them guessing

because it’s better to keep them guessing they say

but they forgot about the ones that kept it going

we bowed our heads and carried on while they applauded politely

never once saying a word we were an afterthought

we thought after we jumped but assumed crash-positions

safety in numbers and all that

it wasn’t just that one word but all the others too

strung together just so

eggshell-delicate with a touch of madness

and a scent of attention

subtle and there to remind you that and me that

it’s time to breathe again

listen close for the hum and follow along

we’ll feast on juicy oranges and each other

and stay away from the pomegranite seeds this time around

you can tell me stories and etch them for proof

and bury them but not too deep

for easier access

for us both
