Love Can Be A Lot of Thingsyou know, love can be a lot of things,Love Can Be A Lot of Things by johnfinch
it can be universal, mystical, mythical, wonderful,
it can be cooking dinner or walking in the rain,
it could be staying in your pyjamas, smoking weed, watching wrestling,
and wrestling later, laughing and laughing,
it can be Ella Fitzgerald on a breezy afternoon,
the wind creeping through attic window open diagonal,
it can be train rides in tubes running under the city,
it could be walking close streets to get ice cream before shop close—
it can be the simple fact that someone exists,
the fact that you know that they're there—somewhere,
it can be the sound of their voice on the air, their smile,
something simple—yeah—the way that they wear their hair,
it can be the tear in your eye as you think of these things,
that feeling that rests in the chest and the joy that it brings,
yeah, love can be an awful lot of things,
love can be a lot of thin
Lady II shy and silent, sitting on red carpet, smoking cigaretteLady II by johnfinch
and blowing it out of the window that looks over the street,
her bare feet, toes curl on the carpet, and I smile at her
blowing smoke out of the window, looking at me through the stream,
pale legs on red carpet, and painted toenails that match
her lipstick, she shifts and silk slides up her thigh, I sigh,
nothing like sitting there with her in afternoon, the sound
of street through open window, planes echo from the sky …
It has been some time since I have updated my deviantart with journals or poetry, but finally, I have, and I do hope you enjoy.
I have uploaded some poems I have written this year. I am currently also working on finalizing the second edition of Willows, Women, Highways and the Sea. I hope to get the second edition out in the next month or so, so be on the lookout and I'll let you know.
I am also currently working on a follow-up of Willows made of works selected from the 2013 year. The new book, tentatively titled Flowers and Jazz, should contain about a hundred new poems. I am hoping to get Flowers out by May.
I hope you all are well.
