Three Poems by Louise Helle, pts. 2 and 3
The two faced eye set
One side is a moon carried by reckless tides
Lodged in an eye socket built to small
For what it sees
It bulges out and scares little children
The other a jewel reflecting all possible colors
A list of my happiest thoughts, dictated to the worlds happiest stenographer
Happiness is a monarch on its way to Florida
Two cold plums and a bit of green tea with honey
A soft kiss with my breakfast
& the sun singing on my face and your face
The ache dissipates!
The world connects!
The word is confident!
The road winds &
the trees bend in the wind!
One thousand splashes of cool water to the skin
on a hot day, fighting wars
with water balloons to find at the end
a joyous laugh coming a long way
& cool sheets in the night.
