POSTCARD POETRY FEST: August 12, 2013

You intend to trap me on this page?

Monkey Mind says.  Think again.

I am illusive, ubiquitous.

I wear a rainbow mask,

A cloak of invisibility.

I hide behind the screen on your laptop.

I hover in the rafters of the barn.

I confuse you.  You don’t remember.

Shift your brain just as you reach

For Icarus.  You mix metaphors,

Lost as you seek Green Tara.

I take a bow.

If I burned your bridge,

it smelled like charred toast.

If I missed you,

I hid it in a lily pad.

If you expected more,

I was not a paper doll.

If Mercury goes retrograde,

I don’t have to.

  If I wanted to forgive you,

  I’d look for Ganesh.
