3 Poems by Erren Geraud Kelly

Twentynine Palms, California

ruby slippers lie
in the desert like
quarter notes
maybe a little girl
was here
a lovely desert
if no one hears the
is it still music? 

59th Street Bridge, New York City 

a girl I know lives not far
from the bridge
she makes me take my shoes
every time I come over
and I love coming over
to watch the breeze in
her walk
her body is a soprano
I hear the islands when
she talks
she tells stories with
her camera
but she is still a mystery
the best stories are
the ones yet to be
even after all these years
I think of walking hand in
hand with her over that
taking her in my arms
and loving her till the
tears flow
I wonder does she know
if it wasn't for her
I might jump off
the bridge
to see if I could
but the thought of
her face
and the music of
wil always keep me high
and so I walk over the
a saxophone song like a
that always leads me to

A Kiss

It was a kiss
But nothing to stop
The presses
Even if the tide stopped
And the lights over the
Paled next to your
It was no big deal
Though i admit
For a moment i thought
Through your lips
Destiny revealed itself
To me
