Other Time Romance

Roaring Twenties

take me away

Charleston, Porter, jazz and gin

smoky rooms and crimson lips

cops and runners

boardwalk empires

fishnets, feathers

basement booze

you sing of an

other time romance

 

- C.R. Cohen

The Danger of Waking Dreams

I dream with eyes wide open

Reality and dollar signs

and what I've known and seen

Open eyes 

What I've seen 

Have set me where I stand

Now and then

I must remember 

To close my eyes

And dream

 

- C.R. Cohen

Inside Out and Shaken

Dismantled 

Dissected

Beating heart in hand

Crimson

Burgundy

Spaghetti guts on ground

Backbone slid from out my skin

Racheted, straightened, returned again

Double spin cycle

Rinse and repeat

Cleansed of pessimism, distrust and defeat

The complexion of now, fully remade

The carrion of yesterday buried, decayed

 

- C.R. Cohen

The Road

miles and skies

and yellow lines

a whirlwind in my hair

my heart beats the tattoo

of rotating tires

on stretches of road at 90

distance

newness

possibilities

unfold around curves of pavement

all life opens to the road ahead

wild and free and winding

 

- C.R. Cohen
