POEMS FOR NOONE
By David Eide
The Splendid Feast
Reading on blue Wednesday in the park of dreams; pure reality!
Splendid readings at the first door of youth when the look is still unspoiled.
Splendid spirits spoke proudly that brief winter before being absorbed into the space that compels us.
Splendid nights in quiet zones between the words of superior men.
Splendid rolling thoughts through greenery of some instant we haven't given a name.
Incessant driven beauty scrambles through the mind at dawn before the barking of dogs.
Mind that bolts through the forgotten door.
Mind that has done with company and competition
learning to enjoy the splendid feast at the table of the noble fools.
