Ward Notes (Three Poems)

Out of Hollywood

Out here––
Out of Hollywood
Free from actresses
And Nobel laureate scholars
With pink ties

In here––
With plaster walls and
Stainless steel showers––
Light green,
Forgetting everything

Outside––
Where sun shines,
Dandelions bloom––
Nothing is safe
But everything free

Inside––
My mind,
My soul,
Righteous and free.




Television Blues

Television blues
While we drone on
Inside our heads
New dreams wearing
Our hearts down dead
The waves coming, running,
Trudging
Not wanting even our selves––

Blood races thin
As they flow steadily therein
Begin,
   Begin,
      Begin
         Again.

Another dose,
Another fill,
––us within.



10,453

This bed––
This death bed––
Perfect and clean.
