The Sunday Poem: Gino Sky . . . 2 Poems: A Lovely Burgundy Lady & Peace Be Gentle

A LOVELY BURGUNDY LADY

I settled down within
my
wife below Mt. Truchas.
        A lovely fat
        burgundy lady.
                                She
was an
empress from another
century.
                                Now
                    A weaver of light.
Taking from the sun
light.            The moon.
Stars.
From the street neon
seal
beams flashlights & eels.

Strobes.         Fire
flies
lightning & the
Aura of halos.
                             When we . . .
Making love our bed
an incandescent fluid
of
rainbow
swimming towards Venus.

She told me to bring
her
the sun . . . Picking flowers
from the mountain I
placed them at her loom.

PEACE BE GENTLE
                        To my daughter.

Touch grace the spirit.      Be

my moongod.

                           Beauty.   I return the world
                           Krishna my daughter
                           I bow

the Gods,         Demand.
Myself as flesh.
Beauty !         You are zonked !       F-111's shoot
through my body total spirit I exchange
transfusion to a melting eucharist.

I beat my drum.    The gods

awake
inside me.

                           My grandfathers have long
been
dead.

                  Krishna my daughter.

Gino Sky
