Guest poem by J.H. Wells

blue eyes

——————————————

A portrait Pollack painted,

drunk, blossoming ornate beauty.

——————————————

Gypsy eyes, wearing violet,

hiding, the nighttime thief,

from dawns  heart of

destitution.

——————————————

But I know so little of this design.

For we have not shared

passion’s ferocity

nor,

taken part in the restless feeling

in a dying conversation.

——————————————

So, who is to say

That our house will burn, or if

The lavenders will have a

divine scent?

——————————————

Join me,

drowning in some gin.

I’ll be by my typewriter, and you

lost in your violin.

——————————————

Until then,

love will have to starve.
