Thalassemia

Let’s never think about it
or cross that river
when we run from it
just because it’s a good place to hide
in the mist drifting sideways.

For years now, we’ve evacuated
for all we were worth.
It’s like we’ve been struggling
outside the frame of our own picture.
It’s exhausting to say the least
& a fat lot of good it’s done us.
A crow in the street
has had more to say about it all
than we ever did.

Still, it’s no cross to bear;
the underside of all things
held us fast, thank god, like bombs on a mission.
We were clowns then, but the championship
was within our grasp.

Sometimes they do come back
like pandas, she promised,
the bamboo so sweet & green.
Hello, again.
It’s so quiet tonight;
you don’t even realize you’re been waiting
all these years to hear them say it.

The Sad Pandas

Old men with pens
in paneled rooms
tight smiles
the passage of checks
across a desk polished
by the passage of checks
the final documents
out the window
out the window
rooftops
wires
black scribble of tree tops
walls with other windows
shadows flying upwards
oh the sad pandas
how do we bear their stupendous sadness
if i chewed 
a stick of thousand-year gum
i could not chew
more cherry flavor
out of it than i have already
There are deer prints 
in the carpet
beneath our feet
what if all of us noticed them & said nothing
said nothing like i said nothing
what if we were all terrified
what if we were all keeping the same secret
what if all of us could never forgive ourselves
what if we were all ashamed of we knew not what
what if we all wanted to say it
say it out loud just once
say it out loud just once & get it off our chest
what would we want to say
Go on, say it
go on, it's time
go on, I won't tell a soul, I promise
go on, for god's sake, 
the pandas are listening
Today on Twitter!!!

Where there used to be a cupcake!!
