Vintage Words


I wish you joy on top

of all that bitter taste

in your mouth left over from

past ecounters with fruit

gone off.


I wish myself the same

as the past has had

the real worm in the half

bitten apple I knew I should

have eaten differently.


I wish us a future filled

with, if not happiness and joy

or kindness and health, a 

modicum of peace and a  healthy

dose of I told you not to do that so

why didn't you listen?


I wish us forgiveness of self 

and solace for a moment, if not

an hour, to forget the terrible

hurts, horrendous guilt, and self

blame to see the light still aglow

in the edge of the soul where

flames of passion and love

and hope might or just may,

ignite again.
