he is a hell of a good friend

he is a hell of a good friend
by Dawn Davidson
a hell of a good friend

i met him, when his blue sweater, was young
i heard him, thru a bird's wing

i was hunting, in truth for a friend
studying for several months, it became clear

a hell of a good friend

he brought me to his hobbit hole
in the middle of a suburban curl
the sky, as i recollect

was thirsty for blue, that day

we now travel thru time's binoculars
like zen monks leaving behind yesterdays
in the garbage room of tomorrow
feeding each other, like two forgotten
universes

we never hold on to meaning

we understand our position

a hell of a good friend

...you're touchin' the edge of something here, dawn, a sopping-existential write.

The title nails this thing so beautifully in the way it comes through in the last line. Awesome write.

I like the idea of listening through birds' wings.

this surreal express goes down the track sweller than a bee bite. in other words, it winds its way through the tunnel of the mind to wind in and out of sight and most expressively so. this compulsion train toots whirlwinds which in their wake are certain to give rise from their beauty sleep all the denizens along the way.
