Never to Return

October 15, 2007 § 2 Comments

blurry details of a young man’s lot

cute model, actor-like

peering in the window

waiting till others left for work

his image comes through

that window and he now stands

in my apartment, a ghost waiting

till i wake from this dream

i’m calling 911

speaking with the man

the man who helped 7

JACKSON defend

(i’m telling him)

hoping he can pick up the signal

getting away from boy x

i go to the stairwell, the fire escape

and yet, still looking in

at the guy upstairs who slowly

grew obsessed

i’m at the top of a city

building now
asking for an address

on 23rd

the psych room is melting

covering me

getting serious attention

i’m quickly noticed

escaping … with 2 woman

outside the building

see its part of my somewhere


star … another and me

running into a white sedan

on the west side highway, closer

to the water, we locked our doors

i want to be dropped off

to the police

to a junkyard he takes us

we escape somehow … good

boy x comes to the scene

we get caught where there

are all these audio speakers

i try shocking him by electric

volts from cable wires

then, escaping down a shoot

into a store like Sears,

the man from the white sedan

is suddenly there and i yell 911

this time as my cell has no

service. i heard him…

“do it for his SUSAN”, fingers snap

again … i wake from my sleep before

midnight August 9th

and the secret of ISS ferments

he said to me,

“and for you, i never accomplished

that because of my S.U.S.A.N.”

    Intrigued throughout – a realisation deep within – certainly thought provoking …. as so many of your beautiful poems leave me.

    It’s a crazy dream I had (years ago) about some spirit(s) who passed away suddenly in man-made disaster, while living in NYC. I’ll just leave it there…
