“ANOTHER POEM, JUST FOR YOU!” a poem a.k.a.: “Wanna Moon Pie?” October 26, 2018 – Moon Pie Frie Die! “We’ve almost made it to Halloween!” The Mystic Poet. Remember the special Halloween Karaoke, tomorrow night, at El Cosmico – in Marfa – from 6:00 P. M. (approx.) until MIDNIGHT, The Witching HOUR is The 13th Hour!
Another poem! Yes, just for you!
ANOTHER-O’-THE-SAME! So-it’s-nothing-new –
Just-to-remind-us-BOTH – That LOVE’S THE THING,
And The World! Well! It’s a “ding-a-ling!”
It tries to-divert-attention – by ANY MEANS,
From OUR SWEET LOVE! For – It seems,
That – This-Place-This-Dimension- This-Silly-Fabric-”Tear,”
Will do anything-to-create-havoc – with-LOVERS-so-FAIR,
And, when The World – has done its best,
Who – one-day – knocks – upon your door,
And says: “Hi, there! I’m-selling-lovely-floor-
TILE!” and you’ll-ope’-your-eyes, just a bit,
And say: “Do-I-know-you?” “No!-I’m (just) a-”half-wit,”
Call me: Mr. Rogers – with MORNING WOOD!
Call me-The Marquis de Sade, with a-more-than-tender-touch!
Call me THE BAD MAN! – who loves! loves-too-much!”
And THEN (I hope) you’ll-recognize-me (pause) and-maybe-you’ll-say:
“Aren’t you that Texas Cowboy? The one called: J Jay?”
[And I’ll recall:]
“INTELLIGENCE – without FAITH – is a waste of time,
The World is a trickster! But-I-have-(some)-rhyme,
And A GOOD POEM WILL FIX UP ALL THAT’S WRONG,
For-a-good-poem has-good-lyrics – for-a-good-love SONG!
So! Have a deaf ear, when The World shouts loud!
Have a-blind-eye-too! and – don’t-be-too-proud,
To hear me – with your good ear – and to-use “the sighted eye,”
For I LOVE YOU MORE THAN ANYTHING,
So I brought-you this Moon Pie!” 🙂
