#SomethingDifferent 7 – Two More Poems by The Chocolate Lady!

Once upon a time, I wrote poetry!

Somewhere deep inside my #LetsDiscuss2020 #DiscussionSunday post about my regimen vs. impulse posting, I posed the question if anyone thought it might be fun for me to post some of my poetry here on my blog. Well, a couple of people showed interest, and I appreciate that. As for the rest of you, you are welcome to just click or scroll on by if you aren’t poetry people (I promise, I won’t be the least bit offended)!

These were written in 1999 and 2000, and I actually got paid $10 for each of them!

The Disaster

Death

No movement in

The vast emptiness

no-boot-disk-has-been-detected-or-the-disk-has-failed (2)No spark in

The dark expanse

No sound in

The empty abyss

Only the morbid message

That cursed my memory

and erased all hope of recovery

“Error reading Boot Disk Drive.”

Distant Brother

Your delicate crystal dome of silence
and Perspex-distorted visions,
intensified by this death,
magnify the fractures on your mute veneer;
not diminish our riven past.

Fiber Optic CableRevelations on fibrous glass
and shards of opaque sorrow
bursting across the expanse
can shatter into relief.

Transmit your slivers of mourning to me;
request no reply.
I’ll retrieve them to be smashed
back into sand.
