The Untitled The Beautiful
Two Poems by Lisa Squier
I am from clotheslines and opened windows
From Corvettes and smoke
From Johnson and Johnson and Folgers
I am from Friendship
Dusty, sweaty, loud
I am from Hibiscus:
Huge, flowering, bright
I am from Wisteria:
Climbing, Perennial, fragrant
I am from Midnight Mass and Christmas morning
I am from Momma and Daddy
I am from defense and walls
From smuggling watermelons and screaming yellow zonkers
I am from Saints and Faith
I am from Houston and covered wagons
And the cookies nobody eats with casserole
I am from blue suitcases and Once Upon A Time…
I live with dreamers and musicians.
My mother howls at the moon.
I sleep with wolves and run with rats.
I bathe in the rain and drink the sun.
My father is the circus and art.
I am surrounded by strength and wisdom.
I am full of the Holy Spirit and drenched in blood.
I am wild and free and reckless.
She Smiles for Me
Hoards of People
I strain to Hear
In the Masses
They Move in Sync
I Only See One
Our Eyes Meet
There is a Moment
Her Smile Instantly
Grows and Spreads
I live life as I want with no desire or need to conform. Living an unconventional lifestyle I have lived a colorful exciting and sometimes hard life. I am odd mix of tradition and quirky. Typically unaware of the big picture but always caught up in the nuances of everyday life and people.
