A Selection from "The frame of forever..."

On March 16, 2011 a series of my poems were performed in a composition entitled “The frame of forever….” The composer, Norman David, directed and played with his ensemble, The Eleventet, for the world premiere, which took place at Plays and Players Theater in Philadelphia. Recording information to follow.

Throwing out candles (little ones)
Throwing out candles
And wax into it
If you were here we’d throw a big one into that flame
Though it’s ironic, you’d say drink the alcohols
So I’d sit in your shadow or near to it
And drink the flame myself
In the flame or near to it
In the flame which is my wish
As a tree for thought and the readymade of it
The bargain comes next
However plump
                          (first published in MiPOesias: The David Trinidad Edition)
You lie in a told tree sure
And the books of elders beside it
You lie in a told tree sure
And the books of elders beside it
The books of elders in the told tree
And the books of elders beside it
Beside it the told tree
And the books of elders beside it
Beside it the books of elders
The told tree beside it
You lie in a told tree sure
And the books of elders beside it
