“Let Me Guess”

von Bieber1

“Let Me Guess”

Let me guess who you are today; I’ll take a stab:
The dispensation of an anomaly
Among the many; truth, a Baby Ruth; an interim snack of cheese and homily
With subtle saturated satisfactions of the tongue or perhaps the drab
And balm of country kitchens of the family; no? then a likely love
Of solitude while at a sidewalk café. Then, again, possibly a calm
Redemption on hearing serendipity recitations of psalms
And poesy; a rush of elevation high above
The world in a pigeon coup atop a tenement, a private peak,
Sole witness to a gambit of fireflies in the penthouse;
you bear the marks of choruses from Bach,
The symphonies of Mahler, a von Biber mass amassed
and a never-ending fugue in stock
Of cigarettes for friends around a table
in the daily wanderquest of hide-and-go-seek?
…And all of this for your daily muse, remiss
Because God’s forgot to mention something, and everyone but you
knows exactly what that something is.
