Bongo the Calypso

bongo the calypso [detour left]
.~~~~~~~~~|||~~~~~~~~~~~~.

it's good to not judge the word
but to savor its meaning cast
off the line of imaginings
leaning into leeward passion -
the wisdom whale swallows
the total futility of loss
leaving no thing in silence

bark three
the tree is
carved with
letters:

L O V E

and the heart beats
from within the trunk
... 1,000 treasures
to behold when ready
where the cobalt of time
ticks metronomically
