The Drum

Posted to Poetry




boomboom

got something to say?

maybe about grass ?

race politics religion ?
government ?
love ?

boomboom

mommy ? daddy ?
sister brother cousin
neighbor teacher ?

got something to say ?
about the meter that monitors
the amount of juice going
to each home in the land ?

boomboom

the girl next door ?
the girl in school ?
someone else’s wife ?
your own wife ?

about a dead mother
who arrives in a car
rolls down the window
hands you a bouquet of flowers
says “ here, lie on your back
and hold these awhile ?”

boomboom

got something to say ?
forget words -
get a drum .
