Written in Sandusky, Ohio.

Over the sidesdrop,
Man sips on the strange love.
Swirling feeling like a space shudder,
Wondering when morning will come.
A bird,
A boat,
A man in a coat,
The island of dreams.
To know no one at a distance,
The feverish ball,
Woman in the air,
A loud last fall.
Bang sang the Summer breeze,
Itching and flowing with the wavy trees.
Wonder in anticipation from the old sacred seeing,
Hone in the parade from the enchanted being.
At last a sign of the sun!
Waves look purple as they move to a moaning radio that's pumping Phish.
I think,
You wink,
Remember to breathe,
Standing up to the glowing sky.
Lights in the town blink and weave.
Freaking out in a small tent,
A new world up and bent.
Some show of fear while others prance and hear.
We're getting out of here!
When you say,
It's for all of us to know,
The island is so wonderful showcasing Summer for many years to come.

The Island (French Translation) Dedicated to Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine...

l'île par

sur le sidesdrop
l'homme boit à petits coups sur l'amour étrange
sentiments tourbillonnant comme un frisson spatial
le fait de se demander quand le matin viendra
un oiseau
un bateau
un homme dans un manteau
l'île de rêves
ne connaître personne à une distance la boule fébrile
la femme dans l'air un grand l'automne dernier
la détonation a chanté la brise d'été
les démangeaisons et le fait de couler avec les arbres ondulés
la merveille dans l'anticipation de la vieille vue sacrée
la pierre à aiguiser à la parade de l'être enchanté
les signes semblent pourpres comme ils bougent à une radio gémissant qui fonctionne phish
je pense
vous clignez de l'oeil
souvenez-vous de respirer
la confrontation au ciel ardent
les lumières dans le battement des paupières municipal et se faufilent
le fait de faire paniquer dans une petite tente
un nouveau monde en haut et une disposition
un spectacle de peur pendant que d'autres l'allure fière et entendent
nous sortons ici
quand vous dites
il est pour nous tous pour savoir
l'île est l'été servant de tremplin ainsi magnifique pendant de nombreuses années pour venir

Reviewed by blue soplain 8/24/2007
i loved how your poem captured the small things; intent; pervasive; evocative in places. .. the drip.drop of words and and breath-caught phrases. ..must read some more of you~
