    For Bishop; an acknowledgement of all the voices in my head...all the aspects of the creative whole of me, since I began writing poetry


    I/we spin poems from
    multi-colored
    seeds we've sown

    the dreams come,
    but the fabric
    is ofttimes
    misshapen
    and torn

    and the waking hours
    may have
    no rhyme
    & even less reason

    I/we weave words
    to soothe hurt
    ease pain
    make love

    which brings
    the rain
    again

    I/we see
    with fingertips
    the sounds I utter
    don't come from
    our lips

    stitching together
    pictures
    from the silhouette
    of souls

    against the wall
    above a feather
    bed

    makes manifest
    past-present
    future
    of everything
    we've ever heard

    said

    I/we weave/spin
    on a wheel
    within a wheel
    whirling
    circles
    round
    my selves
    creating
    tapestry

    surreal

    don't wake us
    & please, don't fear
    it's the sanity
    of a poet

    we love it here
