All the body bleaks the moment: Dear now,
I was with you once, but eternities change
and it shouldn't matter except the grass
at green is grooming new confusions.

Dear bodies, bleak with knowing where you go,
you must flatter certain folds of perceiving
with feeling's foam; it is the only way
to hold us forward, toward this dented sky.

All these soggy sounds that boast of dear death,
that dime you purchased with a start.
I was with you once, but eternities will change
and still fold us forward, toward their awful skies.
I am very lonely. Someone say "hello" to me?
I haven't really been around here since December, but on a whim a couple of days ago I decided to sign in and WHAM, to my delight I discover my poem "What Is Existence Someone Please Tell Me" has recently been featured as a Daily Deviation by the wonderful
BeccaJS . Many thanks to all who read, commented on, or faved that poem.

My absence has to do with my move to the San Francisco Bay Area where I'm busy pretending to be a tech entrepreneur. But I believe more in the primacy of words now than ever. Language allows us to breathe out our internal selves, to breathe in the personal consciousness of others. Writers are just those who breathe more deeply, but that much oxygen makes me light headed, and I can't always permit myself to get so giddy. However, I'm not sure I can afford not to either; the longer I'm away from poetry the more irritable and desolate I become. So everyone just stay calm and keep reading and writing; I'll try to do the same.


p.s. I finally got a twitter handle, @JustinMHelms , though I'm still holding out against this whole Facebook madness (Mark Zuckerberg's real worried about it I'm sure).

You're welcome! I like poetry. Pooooeeettttrrryyyy... even when I say it, I can see it rolling and winding in front of me, going on for ever. That's comforting.
