VERY BEAUTIFUL POEMS

 

my nose

 

*

 

in the dark

my nose

 

*

 

you will find

my nose

in the dark

 

*

 

my nose is a pink moon

you have to

take my word for it

about the pinkness

I mean

itís dark

but prepare yourself

I must sneeze

I have a cold

and right now

no Kleenex

 

*

nothing is beautiful until

I look at the moon

my nose in total darkness

 

*

 

revision is possible

a poem should be

perfect and polished

like a nose

letís put

our noses to the wheel

our shoulders to the brimstone

the muse will knock and

deliver the pink moon

to our door

 

in the dark

my nose

simple sneezing moon

 

*

 

imagine if life

was so perfect

like this poem I mean

 

*

 

but there are some words

that didnít fit back there

pumpkin

evil

kneepad

 

*

 

the sun

óachingly beautifuló

sets over hilltops

 

the other side of the world

a nose made warm

 

óGary Barwin
