Dog Among Elephants - Excerpted from 50 POEMS - #poem #poetry #mywriting #anthology

Wary of a foot descending accidentally
Safe within the cool allure of shadows

Time then swept the sky clean as a beach
Knocked the mighty giants down to stay
Splintering rib cages, white as sailboat wrecks
Disappearing into the sand

Service in the circus first, Cracker-Jacked-up kids
Squealing as the prisoners marched in single
File, blaring jungle jazz from waving trunks

Next, a team of hunters in their Rover caravan
Rifle bearing, khaki-clad, guides and jerry cans
Off to make their bones and win a trophy

Finally, the taxidermists gaze with glassy eyes
While fashioning elaborate umbrella stands

Now the hound with steady gait
Shoulders straight, eyes focused
On some horizon far beyond his sight
Seems to smile as sunlight bears down
Hotter than a spot, without a bark or
Warning growl to spare for prince
Or serf, without a collar, leash
Or tag, license, name or master

Des songes d’eau

Je trace les motifs des songes
au travers d’êtres déguisés
libérés en particules évanouies
révélant des éclats de moi-même.
Dans l’espoir de guérir mes naufrages,
je pourchasse un sommeil en cavale,
ultime refuge où ancrer mon vaisseau.
Dreams Like Water

I trace patterns in dreams
through beings disguised
undone like particles broken apart
revealing pieces of me.
I pursue elusive sleep
in the hope to heal mishaps
the last chance to anchor my boat.
