S. K. Kelen Life Poems
- 1. Fission
White glow melts life
freezes shadow, twisted bottle
the birth of the transistor
- 2. Venice
Bugsa Bunny you're the sanest man
in all Italia last hope for risorgimento
singing Santa Lucia in the barber shop
glorious ears twitching your gondola
- 3. Understand
wild animals become divinely rare
their habitats wild homes are soft earth & tree
cannot flee before the bulldozer concrete
flame and smoke desert where only wheat
- 4. Thousand Star Hotel, Hanoi
Over the road from the three star Galaxy Hotel is our hotel,
the old park on Phan Dinh Phung Street,
- 5. The Spheres
The sun is burning a hole in your pocket
and though very slowly you are making
- 6. The Leech
Apart from its voracious appetite for mammalian blood
little is known of the leech's ways. Does it know love or
family life? is there communication?
Leaf litter's monster weapon, what can you say
- 7. The Cafe Bear
Out back of the cafe a square iron cage
made hard corners for a honey bear
the boys saved from a bulldozer.
Crouched like a dog, the cage
- 8. Down Time
Who steers the thunderbolt?
Events conspire: there's the one
Growling like a tigress, calls you ‘mate'.
Choose life. Love's duty will not wait.
