always together.... | karin taylor

Once upon a little time in a moment unknown
someone was very unkind, causing someone to lose their lustre
causing someone to lose their pretty glace cherry sundae supershine

Once upon a time there was a little red robin
he wore a hood of raspberry satin and little drops of blood
stained his beating breast of resin

Once upon a little time in the history of all
that remains sewn into silences on the broad sweep
of the mountains and hillsides of exasperation
there are logical reasons for everything and nothing is magical
except for everything
and it’s there that I go whenever I’m ill
it’s there that I go for a sugary pill

I like my pavlova pink, my ocean blue, my tears see-through
I like my lollies red, my hair all blonde and blowin’ in the wind
I like my pavlova rainbow, my rainbows golden coated, my heartaches bolder than a brazen hobo on silver stilts and a fair bit of boho
I wear an earring like a boulder on my shoulder and I have a heartsick file in a folder holder.

I like my clouds so fluffy, that they defy the tails of bunnies
I like your heartbeat soft and gentle, your arms around me when I go mental,
I like your chest all furry, your smell all musky, your hugs make me misty, your love makes me feisty, your heart makes me happy, in your presence I’m always together and never alone now.

Artist's Description

Hey kids, below is a poem I’ve just written……it’s a little known thing, but I’m told I’m related to the late great John Milton (the blind poet who penned Paradise Lost/Paradise Regained) and also John Constable (you know that famous english landscape artist)…I reckon they’d be mortified by my art poems, but you never know……their less serious side might have liked a few of them. I would hope I’d only make them proud. Recently I found out that I have Asperger’s and not that long ago, found out I’m jewish…and it’s a big relief to know, that’s why I’m a little bit different. So, these last few years have been pretty big on self-discovery. I think life is all about discovery. Anyway, it seems to have lifted a weight from my mind, resulting in this little poem, that’s inspired by my beautiful husband with a big heart.
