Clover

Listen to Clover by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Distant Dream by John Carpenter

every nightfall
i step out of my skin
throw all caution to the wind
and bid endorsement to the air of chance
raise full mast
declare advance
of all within me underpinned
for even where the hunger sings
i dare to bare unerring heart

tear apart the flesh undressed of bones where flowers grow ramparts
step out of the skin i’m in
at least within the interim
hours come and go
yet every second ebbs and flows
to pose succeed to lead the very most regenerative dance

my elevated stance
is charmed from dreams i lean to open palmed
seen to be the only psalm
that’s known to sing to broken parts
every time i sleep
i leap
to tether bind to ceaseless keep
this is why the dreamer dreams
to tell divine
the dreams i reap
each unspoken piece of me
is token of release in me
to seek the wings to calm a hopeful heart

every nightfall
i step out of my skin
throw all caution to the wind
and bid endorsement to the air of chance
raise full mast
declare advance
of all within me underpinned
for even where the hunger sings
i dare to bare unerring heart

artists are the first to thirst for betterment to worst precursed
to learn to love the skin we’re in
defer the sting of insulin
verse within to further purse
with no prefer to sink or swim
for either or implore our hearts the happenstance to drink it in

in my chamber
late at night
i reacquaint my appetite
to brave the shade which flays the light
and redefine enraptured twine

treetops
mountains
scaled with ease
forevermore prevailed
appeased to set sail hailed to brave the seas
fail safe dreams
the currency
i feed back to the other me
and whence i wake
the love in me
takes over
for in my open palm
is charmed a lucky four leaf clover
