February Poem of the Month — Don Kingfisher Campbell



a car roars outside the window, a
sudden passing marked only by sound, sudden
shower-like it comes, passes, goes, like a shower
falls out of hearing as a memory falls
and all one is left with is recollection, and
naked at that, because the ears hear naked
I, receive the signal, experience vibration, I
am a natural receiver for existence, I am
riding the waves which pass, reverberate, riding
on an invisible wavelength of experiences on
a plane making my path, my sense a
naked transponder for what is here, naked
horse, no, more like two hundred horses

  1. Hello Don! This is a very different, rollicking kind of voice from you I think.
    Most interest and I love how you wind it up … it is very musical … all jazz and holding the breath and letting the words riff on your melody, all intuition and riffing … I like it.
