File1, 2, & 3 for vbermudez:



i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whaever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my hate, my sweet) i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and its you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of thr sky of tree called life;which grows
higher tan soul can jope or moind can hind)
and this is the wonder that keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)


Have you ever loved a rose,
and watched her slowly bloom:
and as her petals would unfold,
you grew drunk on her perfume.

Have you ever seen her dance,
her leaves all wet with dew;
and quivered with a new romance-
the wind, he loved her too.

Have you ever loved a rose,
and bled against her thorns;
and swear each night to let her go,
then love her more by dawn.


I am taken with the hot animal
of my skin, grateful to swing my limbs
and have them moe as I intedn though
my knee, hugh my sholder, though something
is torn or tearing. Today a dozem squid, dead

on the harbor beach: one mostly buried,
one with skin empty as a shell and hollow
feeling, and, though the tentacles look soft
I do not touch them. I imagine they
were startled to find themselves in the sun

I imagine the tide simply went out
without them. I imagine they cannot
feel the black flies charting he riased hills
of their eyes. I write my name in the sand:
Donika Kelly. I watch eighteen seagulls
skim the sandbar and lift low in the sky.
I pick up a pebble that looks like a green egg.

To the ditch lily I say I am in love.
To the Jeep parked haphazardly on the narrow
street I am in love. To the roses, white
petals rimmed brown, to the yellow lined
pavement, to the house trimmed in gold I am
in love. I shoult with the rough calculus
of walking. Just let me find my way back,
let me move like a tide come in.
