Some Recent Poems. Patricia Murphy

 

I Know This

 

I noticed

I get side

flipped ov-

er on the                                                                 edge

 

of losing it

 

circle a few rods or ords

or hard wide meanings

squeaking high pitch            

only

         stir-                        

                  ring

                            in            with      tered

                                                   scat-               seas

                                                                                      of

                                                                                                 churn-

                                                                                          ing 

floating     ICE    CHUNKS    in muddy rivers

between cities clouds

of light floating over

parking lots and grasses where

queasy children soak up in airs

on strips of seats and chairs

jump off in mid air hit

                      ground

 

 

I Can Only

 

let the room

fill up w the day


it’s clear and still

say u only like

 

still in this sense

even the breeze

 

whipping thru trees

is discreet

 

quiet today

spring winter wind

 

pushing window panes my

nose pushing cheeks

 

I only

hear it

 

I only

feel it

 

magical

              hopeful and

                                brimming

 

 

Things’ Hurrah

 

I’m always all over

between things of

some awestruckness

 

although sometimes

tracks and things stick out

vibrations’ hurrah

 

I want a star not a man

a unicorn in unison

cords so discordant

 

or melodic whale

stomach flops

hearts skip throb

 

like a porcupine

wobbling a

kangaroo

 

forgot to hop

possibilities of

possible explanations

 

things get stepped on

squeezed out

collide with other things

 

companions make colorful

outer patterned layers

bloated red flowers

 

push off in space
