Broken Carrion

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.
