When I Met Grace

Photo by Roghaye Arabpour:

Deep stares
      and tangled hair
We gaze into the reflective
      majestic mirage
            of a dark forest
She is an abnormality
      in the torrential downpour
            of spandex covered ass
She is the orange glow
      of tobacco
            in dismal clouds
She is a mystery
      with indistinct clues
            of angelic demonism
She raised the questions yet to be answered:
      where be my blue opiate star forever obsessed?
      where next shall my vessel point?
      when will I stop searching through wastelands & evergreen
            down steep hills & uncertain fogs?
      what is to be found in the bubbling green lagoon
            of early settlers?
      what is to be?

 what me to be?

 to be the best me
            I can be.
