Contemplating Rebirth

May 6, 2009

[EDIT: This poem just kind of came to me one day. It’s shorter than my average works, and there’s an odd picture that goes along with it. I was inspired by checking out some paintings from a Santa Fe artist, but my attempts to track down who it was have been fruitless. Anyways, enjoy the poem!]

Contemplating Rebirth

All you Santa Fe painters who catch the sun and moon in shock,

come to New Jersey and paint blue upon blue upon blue;

Spare the embryo so he may swim another day,

for he kicks but is not eager.

You will soon catch more than satellites,

and a child will be born.

Trap me here between your 80s love and shoulder pads;

explain to me the heavens with your words of

Rusty-golden amber sands and luminescent emerald cactus

under a haunted-heavy sapphire sky

and set your son free.

Out here in the desert

I will soon be born

of color and the stars.
