THIS POEM IS GOING TO BE LEGENDARY

By David N. Donihue
 
This poem is going to be legendary
Legendary I tell you
 
Like the word-smiths of yesteryear
Quoted for reminders of why we avoid the bar
 
Like a misfit whose suicidal ideation
echoes the frustrations and tranquilizes in
a sense of mindfulness into the ever-evolving common man
 
Like a delicate desert rose
on a formulaic card from someone you’re suppose to know
 
It will provoke the mind
and warm the spirit
 
With the tenderness of a kiss
And the ethos of dynamite
 
And like a lullaby made of
candy coated steam engines
bloating the nerves to your heart
 
It will look at you and say to you
 
Two words you must always remember
 
A message you will softly shout to you
 
It will outwit
And out wise
And out play
And out fuck
the drunkards
and the academics
of which I am neither
 
I have little in common with the greats of the past
Other than our shared skill sets in acquiring poverty
 
Yet this poem will be legendary
 
Yet what kind of a self-absorbed prick
would call his own poem legendary?
 
The two words better be really damn good
 
They better thrash and trash
 
And bubble through the collective human regret
 
They better alter ideations
And cast away iterations
 
Of all that is everything
that has ever stood in our way
 
Yet what makes
this prose legendary
is not the scribe
or the scribbles
 
It is in fact,
the hidden
subject matter
 
Who is currently absorbing these very syllables
 
As that which could prove legendary
is the reader

And the two words in question?
Keep Shining

The Subtle Sounds Of Love

By David N. DOnihue
 
I have heard the subtle sounds of love
harmonizing just beneath the walla of the subway.

As if the souls of the passengers had crawled 
collectively beneath the train and above the tracks. 

Dashing along with us, 
harmonizing a tone of warm pensive forward movement.

Somehow, someway. 
Just forward. 
Together without knowing it. 
Forward.

I have heard the subtle sounds of love.
They’re not so subtle when you choose the frequency. 
They ripple off the oddest places.

They pulse within the darkest of spaces, 
shredding through the painful waters of insecurity.

Restoring in us, what we are meant to be.

You hear them in the eyes of cops and criminals.
You hear them on the skin of the meek and mournful.
You hear them echoing the same soft tune, hoping their harmonies 
are heard.

Hoping their harmonies are felt.
 Without question. 
Just felt and returned and felt.



I have heard the subtle sounds of love, 
in the hope of victims and in the regrets 
and reinventions of the violent and vicious.

I have heard the subtle sounds of love - 

In old diners. 
In coffee shops and snobby restaurants.
In the harrowing halls of Corporate America
  and in the desperate dives of the Sunset Strip.

I have heard them when I am accepted. 
And when I am turned away.
I have heard them when I wanted to die.

And I’ve felt them coax me back to sane.
I’ve heard them In every corner of this town. 

So many, they are louder than all other noises
when you look the fuck around.
