Blue Foam

I see you leaping in the blue house

without curtains shades clothes

leaping

 

I can see you

 

leaping that last jump

terrified

body pushed forward

but hands pulling back

 

reins holding back thoroughbred

saddlebred married divorced

horse cannot arise

long neck arched

 

nostrils flared and foaming

surge jump leap over

final bar

sky blue

 

as you lay lady

lay on your back

broken in three

places I came

 

to you broken

in four blue dreams

breaks were clean

so you moved into the blue house

 

took a blue lover

wrote blue poems

without curtains shades clothes

I can see

 

me

in there leaping

again leaping

in blue foam

 

next time

paint the house red
