Than-Bauk

 

sweet temptation

I would run from

hard won freedom

 

if I could thrive

on a bribe of

word jive – speak up!

 

strong winds and rain

hurricane edge

more pain than storm

 

this loneliness

I confess is

not best for me

Once secret place

20 April 2005

 

once secret place,

sacred space, now

disgraced by all.

Cold steel of blade

20 April 2005

 

cold steel of blade

might persuade me,

clichéd farewell.

Orange moonrise

20 April 2005

 

orange moonrise,

this surprise is

disguised by sleep.

Accept this task

20 April 2005

 

accept this task,

if I ask you,

unmask my soul.
