Dark Past - Poem

Photograph copyright Caroline Gerardo "Jane Brucker Reading" 2011

Dark matter is 22 percent of universe,

and dark energy seventy three-

we survive black constant cruelty.
How do you speak Awijilah, Gaelic and Bengali?

Secrets in a ground wine cellar under the red gendge,

Berber, not the carpet from Home Depot you see.

The cells float this field from what ink did decree


Dropping etymological short vowels into open vineyards,

once corks came from Porto and foil was molten lead.

One more glass of Pinot will surely cloud my head.


My five foot tall frame deceives.

“Please get to the story C. G. -”

Dark matter is 22 percent of universe,

and dark energy seventy three-

we survive black constant cruelty.



Life more fragile than paper bags of water on concrete-

Wear a lead cape to bounce bullets of betrayal descrete

He points anger weapons in a back pack Hello Kitty

loaded and irresponsibly firing at the heart.

My five foot tall frame deceives.
