Doubt Palace

July 20, 2010

Friday evenings

In Doubt Palace,

We cut the floor just right –

Fantastic.

Shimmering gowns

and stained tuxedos,

Moving in circles,

forming lines

like shining deals

awaiting signature;

And there was

just enough champagne

to remind us

that these huddled accomplishments

would never make it

back through

the front gates

again.

    And sometimes ‘huddled accomplishments’ sneak in through the side door dressed as servants. You write good poems. I’m so glad you started this blog here.

    Brad! Poetry? Really? Very nice. Who’d a thunk it?

  3. my mind
    is working
    overtime
    no doubt
    i was at home
    watching tv
    alone

  4. I love love the image of huddled accomplishments.

    this is a fine place here.

    and the Patty Griffin songs … fabulous. Thank you. I’d heard of her only. Now I am a fan. It’s been a Tragically Hip week for me, a little Canadian perhaps.

    and I keep forgetting to ask if you have heard of David Whyte?
    Check him out.
