Poetry From The Vault

For a year or two before I joined WordPress I wrote privately and on a couple Facebook poetry pages. One page – The Eclectic Poet – is still there, suffering the same neglect that WordPress does but once in a blue… the algorithms that be will cast up a “Your Memories On Facebook” post that isn’t just a photo but one of those long ago snapshots in words.

This piece is titled “Blue” and is one of my stream-of-thought or two-AM-thoughts style pieces. It was written on 17 October 2011 and never shared publicly. I rather like it.

Cut and paste from Facebook, this is “Blue”.

Everybody wants a piece but only on their terms

I feel so… stretched

Pulled thin and transparent

I have enough for everyone if they aren’t greedy

My heart needs…  replenishing

Pumped out and labouring

Brown eyes like amber

Tell me all your heart’s secrets

Such treasures preserved

Mahogany, amber, teak, chocolate

Leather, chamois, silk, velvet

blood, wine, cigarettes, coffee

Beautiful…

I can’t get you out of my head. Not normally a bad thing. Very, very frustrating today.

When I close my eyes I can see you. Worse. Sometimes I can feel you.

I can hardly stand to be in my own skin. It’s like I have a fever. On fire, shaking.

I want you here… You are what I need to replenish… Fill me up with you.

Such a tangled web we’ve woven

Your benign indifference leaves me frozen

Snap you fingers, demand my fire

This bed feels like a funeral pyre

If you don’t love me, leave me be

You can’t pick & choose the parts of me

Save Mooney’s Bay ~ One More Push

Don’t be bland about Blanding’s turtle – they are globally endangered – not just the Canuck ones. Personally, I’m less concerned about the “danger noodle” but…

So, the Integrity Commissioner has found there were major breaches to Ottawa’s lobbying rules in the lead up to the announcement of a new playground in Mooney’s Bay Park. This was already painfully apparent but we are now backed by findings resulting from the formal investigation in to this boondoggle. The complete article can be read here:

Hi! I’m a ‘Murrican Blanding’s turtle!

Not to mention, one mature tree produces enough oxygen to support a family of four for one year. They destroyed 16-50 (numbers still not confirmed) mature, healthy trees to put up a bunch of wood chips (ironic…) and plastic crap. Canada (the 2nd largest country in the world) is home to 10% of the world’s forests, that is a shit ton (official Canuck unit of measure) of O2!

Let’s get the petition over the 1000 mark – it’s been noted in communications with CBC news and City Council that people beyond Ottawa care about the environment and endangered species. For those who’ve already signed the petition, you have my heartfelt thanks. You can also show support by liking and sharing the Save Mooney’s Bay Facebook page. Heck! If you sign the petition, I may stop squawking about this.

This inked evidence
I was loved will be again
Proof’s between the lines

Heart do not despair
Your beat lives on in parchment
Tender tinder sparked
