An ocean between us,
The current churned you gone.
Voices whispered, “run-away – just run!”
You cancelled all your flights;
Flew down the desert highway before dawn.
Oh, I had stopped believing
That I would ever see you again.
Erased your disconnected numbers;
Whispered to the walls about your fate
While hours flipped into second year’s end.
Some things are just what they are;
There is no thing or one to take its place.
Tears and panic give way to resolution;
The heart groans and grows a cubit.
Still; no one has your voice-your walk-your face.
Muse of my latter quest,
Cold the waves that buried you from me.
Endless notebooks, filled with loving words
Were the tools I used for slaying
Those devils, trying to push you out to sea.
I live in Costa Rica and write poetry in both English and Spanish. I perform live poetry readings in the 3D virtual platform of Second Life, as my avatar utilizing voice with selected music, some, my own original compositions, and images I display of photographs and artworks to accompany each poem. Many of my poems have been made into machinimas (live-capture videos) through the continuing creative partnership with Natascha Randt (filmmaker). Randt & Hoisan Productions have made 28 videos together; all can be found under the category “Machinima” in my blog. I find every day in this virtual world an inspiration and I am active on my blog, "Digital Rabbit Hole." I am both published in Second Life as well as in my Real Life, in an anthology titled, "The Baker's Dozen, The Cole Foundation Collection Vol lll."
