For the PA Prompt – Write a Poem about an Inteview…. 5 Poems


Note:  I just wanted to get these up and posted will pretty them up tomorrow....


High Powered Interview

so you say that
you created it
all
not with a shred
of grandiosity
but with a simple
glowing statement
of fact

and I ask you but
one question
if so
why then did
you leave this
void of gaping
belief as grand
as the abyss
of that canyon
out US west
within my core
where you
believe you
should live

Interview with a dandelion

How do you reconcile
the destruction of
your self
with the joy
of the child
who blows
you to fluttered
wisps on the wind

Interview with Hortense

It was more years than I’d like you to hear
when first you came into my life Elephant Dear
I need you to know, I need clearly to say
that your compassion informs “who” I am today

Now other girls and boys listen too
to the wisdom dispensed from the largest
to the smallest dignified “who”

At the Pearly

I did not believe
not really that there
was
such an actual gate
but now here I
stand a once mortal pearl
in the light of luminescence
awaiting my fate

I lived by the credo
do unto others and each
day do something kind
if it all counts for something
I would not at all mind

if on the other hand
found my papers are lacking
I probably would not fit in without
unfair, unwanted, celestial backing

So I’ll just stand here and
soak up the sun
on the sheen of the pearls
on the gate wait long begun

Stand here and wait and not
weave words toward my behalf
my life my resume cannot be undone
I’ll pass through or be left here to linger
eternally listening to your chiding laugh

Interview with the oft-pictured Nazi who bayonetted a baby

Now, in the fading light of your years
Now in long passed time of insanity passed
Now that infanthood has been returned
with your rationality and those soft creatures
deemed then unworthy of life, gurgle and coo

How?

do you still the sound
of screams?
