how dark was your horse?

January 19, 2012

tell me why I sometimes think of you

with blond hair

that in a photo your mum

has combed down flat

and grown up its fluffy

what gone are you

who comes back and stands behind me

telling me of your pride and speaking

with so much love in so few words

you who envied me

you who could sing to a crowd

and me

who couldn’t hum without embarrassment?

how dark was your horse?

how rough were the seas?

why didn’t I ask that of you? where was I?

oh to see you smile

in the sunlight

and out of memory shadow

More of Neil’s words …

“Tell Me Why”

Sailing heart-ships
thru broken harbors
Out on the waves in the night
Still the searcher
must ride the dark horse
Racing alone in his fright.
Tell me why, tell me why

Is it hard to make
arrangements with yourself,
When you’re old enough to repay
but young enough to sell?

Tell me lies later,
come and see me
I’ll be around for a while.
I am lonely but you can free me
All in the way that you smile
Tell me why, tell me why

Is it hard to make
arrangements with yourself,
When you’re old enough to repay
but young enough to sell?

Tell me why, tell me why
Tell me why, tell me why

Neil Young

“Only Love Can Break Your Heart”

When you were young
and on your own
How did it feel
to be alone?
I was always thinking
of games that I was playing.
Trying to make
the best of my time.

But only love
can break your heart
Try to be sure
right from the start
Yes only love
can break your heart
What if your world
should fall apart?

I have a friend
I’ve never seen
He hides his head
inside a dream
Someone should call him
and see if he can come out.
Try to lose
the down that he’s found.

But only love
can break your heart
Try to be sure
right from the start
Yes only love
can break your heart
What if your world
should fall apart?

I have a friend
I’ve never seen
He hides his head
inside a dream
Yes, only love
can break your heart
Yes, only love
can break your heart

blood and honey

March 31, 2009

She took out her heart
(and shook it all about)
it dripped with honey and blood
she felt the hot viscous fluid
slide lusciously between her fingers
heard the drip drip drip
Splat on the concrete floor
his studio austere
white white white
all the while he stitched and scratched
and bound his stories
into tight bundles
not looking up not smelling
the ferrousness not hearing
the timpatic drips
not seeing the pleasure
in her eyes

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time a woman lived in a cave. Heart broken. Each morning she went to the nearby forest to collect sticks for her fire. Each stick smelt of despair.

Once Upon a Time

March 4, 2009

Once upon a time
there was a woman who lived in a cave
with her ghosts for companions
Stars Moons Sky she sang
And the woman agreed
Swing Low Sweet Chariot he sang
And the woman agreed
Rest Your Weary Head On My Shoulder
And the woman agreed
The tunes she hummed
were all without a chorus
