Louis Marvin… On A Quiet Sunday Morning

 

On A Quiet Sunday Morning

Oh slight wind blow

good morning birds-sing song of life

The organ and the choral groups
fly from the speaker
on the public radio

church music show

I heard the morning sounds of the military chapel
piano player practicing
the chaplain and I

making twin urine streams in the head

There is a tock, tock tennis ball sound
at a Pearl Harbor tennis event
for kids

Louis Marvin… Little White Haired Japanese Lady

 

Little White Haired Japanese Lady

we are into you for at least 120 grand
10 years and a few days change
saltines in a cracker box
she sweeps away the leaves and wilted flowers

they take the trash away

the Chinese mother started a conversation with you. . .
on and on it has gone
10 years of life tracking, story swapping

talk-about what ails ya

they can forgive the forthright Chinese woman

bring the chastisements for her haole husband
he rubs us the wrong way like the desert does a thirsty man
