8/15/10 – poem, I entrust the rolling world

This poem comes from the same place, in the heart of a middle aged man – although in me much simpler – as Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”.

I entrust the rolling world to you
you can reel it in, you know
with your bangles and your pearls
hold it squirming hold it tight
upon your breathing breasts
calm it with your blushing smile
dazzle with your flashing lashes
you can make the world again today
that eager puppy
you got the day you were born
