Two Poems by Sam Silva


The brain floats away
on flute and guitar jazz riffs.
Summer stillness wafts!

Keep being mindful
of the egg in your skull case!
Beautiful thoughts hang!

Do not be fooled then!,
Summer is a distraction.
Dishes lie unwashed.


Those pagan sprites of legend
once fleshly and alive
in their pure passion
full of the fornication of the sky
with muddy clay creation.

Now they lie down dead
or worse than dead
in a Hell made for angels

and those of us with a spark
have fallowed them also
down to ash
and wind-blown dust!
