IVJ Parietti Poem Feb 2016





Music Box

Firstly Coral was
written, along with
Kelp and other piano-cello
songs I lost in the
fire; I still hear them
delicate notes
when I taste –




Holy Wafer

You cannot receive this holy wafer again
In this case, forgiveness is enough
truth be told, my husband to me is
like gold
All traitorous men otherwise,
like rust.




Deadly Arrow

My deadly arrow
I shoot to you
is hard and cold and uncouth;
I’ve ignored the women who
whined – your lover is false for
that reason and thine –
my sister last he did dine –
my cousin, a boy, his light, he shined
    I cage, I rut, I burst and cuss
    I shrug my shoulders, ‘tis not
                       my loss.

  2. where do I start?! Jamila Woods opened up for Corinne Bailey Rae and her voice changed into excellent. After Jamila executed she was blending with the group and people didn't recognize her. i love how she just combined in. I diagnosed her and we took a photo collectively. It was Corinne's ultimate excursion date inside the states, i'm so satisfied SD changed into her final destination. I cannot trust I were given to look her stay... her song become proper, from the heart and soul, and you could tell she wrote those songs based off of enjoy. terrific set up, top sound machine, really worth each penny spent for the tickets. soul-desire
