for my love

Still missing my wife – another poem from the recently published “gypsy bars...” (go to published page for download or click link for scribd if you wish)


vagaries and kitchen tile tangos

forĀ  K

I am St. Juan Grande Pecador in this new life;

unpredictably weeping and loving,

writing poetry and song.


so wantonly tired and worn but not sleeping.

sad that I cannot sleep next to you,

sad that I cannot sleep at all.


I think how I have loved you.

in morning and night,

I think how I love you.


I am St. Juan Grande Pecador

sitting in the sun, contemplating

the vagaries of kitchen table conversation


– Hoc Scripsi

easy love –

by jhon baker

for Kara


my love

my wife

eleven years and more


we keep the lawn trimmed

without concern

weeds grow in the flower garden

and we

still without concern


dishes pile in the sink

and coffee spills on the linoleum

but no concern


we love

in love

no concern


easy love

beautiful love

no concern


– Hoc Scripsi


Kara, my baby, my love,

I miss you so much that my heart beats irregular.

my body feels wrapped in plastic.

I long and in longing feel misplaced.

every moment away I realize our love immeasurable.

just in case you didn’t see it on FB

by jhon baker

My love,

though we’ve been married nine years now – I’ve not had enough of you,
I may never have enough of you,
I may never be satiated by your lips, your face, your body beautiful.
I want you now, I want you always – I will never stop loving you, not even at nothing.
Allow me to hold your heart forever in my hands and I shall walk slowly, deliberately so as not to disturb our ever seeded affections, our ever strengthening love.
Happy Anniversary my love.
– your melancholic man
