Friday 13th – Sidey noticed the date this weekend, so gave it to us for the theme. Now it so happened that I traveled from my home in UK to my other home in USA earlier in the week. As I am visiting Block Island Poetry Project I thought I would write a poem about a particular event which did take place on this Friday 13th . [There is more poetry on the other blog.]
In my mind I have a picture of myself
My bounds in bounded body
Overlaid with other selves
Each borrowing this body for their elaboration.
Arms legs muscles wind in my face
feel present full
laughing quiet sounds
Sounds gurgle, the smile happens
lips lifting lift the heart
suddenly shocked by the passion the laughter brought.
A thought. Who you? Emerges here
Recently traveled across the wide blue sky
I got my bicycle out from the garage
Dusted it off, happily rode
All the way down High Street
Not on the right side.
