Paul Tristram- Two Poems


Exercise rules the body;
love rules the heart.
Sex rules the senses;
imagination is ruled by art.
Intelligence rules the mind;
experience rules the soul.
While excess and addiction
they rule over the whole.

In A Sack

It’s strange beyond belief
kicking upside down in a sack,
it’s like being trapped in curtains
or falling through the roof of a marquee
and missing the floor.
You can feel the strength, the power
just up past your feet,
you can do nothing
but struggle helplessly and hope
for no water.
