The Mystic Man

- Bengt O Björklund

 

I am the mystic man

wrapped in bandages of old

risen by words that sky soar

always the one on top

daring the best of our time

to seal the pact of continuance

 

roamed I am wired and lost

bound by the chimneys of this world

streamed screamed and beamed

like a beacon in the early sky

shining profusely I am

where I will matter

 

last night I dreamed of you

moving towards your first birthday

I held you in my arms

and I whispered silly things

into your small ear

life is funny that way

 

April snow falls in my deep pocket

a soft breeze folds morning

into birds awaiting springtide

bulbs crouch in wind harsh

today will be the day

I leave a manuscript for you.
