"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2016 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw.

Sealed

Press down
fingertips fly
v for victory
that's it
done

tap it on the
table like
an ace of spades
twice
tap tap

You know it's
too late to say
anything else

Yes too late

Why is it
always on
the back
of the envelope

you can finally
tell the T is for
truth.

Smacked together
scribbled back
to front-- your
words fold
scissor
strangley

who cares
what you said
inside

but it's the back
yes the back--
the back of the envelope
where you can write
it-- where all of
God and Man
will see it

(who
cares what the post man
thinks)

You know floating in the air
sent, delivered, flying free
is your letter. Your
letter with wings.

In it's dark muffled mail bag
in the belly of a plane
there it floats.

Shining
out from the back
of the envelope
are what you really
wanted to say.

There on the back
fingers will
run over the
surface of
those letters
still warm

I'm sorry
