Dallas! Is this Dallas? Is this Dallas to all who love Dallas, TX?!!?
"Oh My God, behold
the undeserving Man I am
as Light, unleashes over hills
. . .and city-scapes...
and I, speechless, wish them all the best...
This is Dallas.
This is August.
These are sereptitious truths
. . . that leave me speechless 'neath their Royal Roofs
...they've let me move at will
...and wander, lost and lusting
... for a simpler silence, still..."
I ask you:
... What gratitude has any state or place so kind as Texas?
... What place contains a spirit borne more of perfect decency?
It's so difficult to come back a day later, re-read a poem and like only half of it. But, then, I can be glad I tried. Now I'll rewrite and edit it until it suits me.
Great answers! Thanks!
I'm putting it to a vote.
