His Only Sparkle

Kenneth, loves satire and writings to spotlight others, but he also has an "addiction" so to speak, to dramatic and abstract/prose poetry.


Shhh, no words need to be spoken
Your life and joy will suffice.
I've watched you lately, and found
No vows or empty words broken.

Your attire is rather silly for a hunter like you
Tis' better that you crawl on all-fours and
Seek a varmint's scene.
But then, I'd have to teach you what I know
And try somehow to take those fairytale
Books out of your heart.

Like black ravens flying in a circle in June
Or dancing backwards and playing strings
That I know are all out of tune.
And still, there's that one annoying sparkle.

I noticed it there a few years ago when you were twenty
You almost lost it when "she"said good-bye,
Leaving you with your only friend, "Benny."
But as rabbits go, he stuck with you toe to eye.

And now at your life's ending verse
It's me, a wish, and an eyelash, and that sparkle.
I'm not a heavenly angel, no, I never curse.
So please, be still and give no markle.

Just take the one sparkle there on your heart
Keep your mouth shut and smile.
I find the sparkle joyous and so is your sort.
I think "we" better go at least one more mile.
