Two Poems  

Laura S. Marshall

Two Subtle Distances

I haven’t been excited lately so I started growing mushrooms.
Even the ones I don’t like are beautiful.
They all hold the threat of their beauty.

If you look closely, you’re looking upside down.
We all have a busy pond.
Sit down and you become a triangle.

I’m doing it again.
I’m going to protect my mother’s knee.
It looks like I’m so close to being together.

In the meantime, I’ll be beaten and beat.
From any direction you can see a smug face.
Take a sneak shot.

I can’t do this. I can’t do this today.
And I wanted to be with you all the time. It’s so cold.
I’ve been waiting here for a long time, and

I’ve been waiting here for a long time.


Greetings to you Claus,

My name is Bronislava.

It is the middle of the day and I was thinking about you.
I saw you on the pier. The wind was blowing through
your hair, and your eyes were shining.

You are handsome, I thought as I saw you, a vision.
I watched you looking somewhere away.
Where are you, my dear man!

I have various interests. I have friends that surround me.


Aloha dear Karl

I can almost feel you beside me as I write this letter. I even imagine
the pleasant scent of your perfume.

Dear User,

My name is Bronislava.

I have various interests. I try and remember special dates and beg forgiveness when I miss them.

I can tell that I am a little bit stubborn.
I like when everything is the way I like.

There is always some madness in love.
But there is also always some reason in madness.


Privet my friend Tobias,

There is no remedy for love but to love more.

(I’m a woman and only interested in a man.)
