Quotes about jaundice

Nicknames for Aislinn

She was born a bald little lassie
long and thin, truly, ever so pretty
6lbs-8oz if memory serves me well
she was slender and strong as gazelle.
She’d the yellow ochre of barley jaundice.
She lay on my lap; her eyes opened wondrous…
She’d match for grace all the tiny wild cowslips
I'd laugh! “I'd nicknamed her chips”
Because of her yellowing, jaundice—after
finally she came home with her mother
I changed that name to “clothes peg”
As seemed right… even if a little bowleg,
She’d lie in the little red washing-basket.
Just as if it was her Moses basket
Clothes peg stuck; it was only proper!
As we hung her out to quietly jabber…

Uwaoma

My love-jaundiced eyes
Are intent on the moon
Because I see no celestial curio
Only her wild serene face

Face that rouses my hunger
Desperate and unquenchable
Because she is no real meal
Only an abominable bowl of pork

Pork which Eleazar
Does not even simulate
Because I sense no satisfaction
Only a bait to fire my hunger

Hunger being Alexandrian
Wields a weapon futile
Because I crave no Maria
Only her absorbent tranquility

Jealousy is the jaundice of the soul.

In forming a judgment, lay your hearts void of foretaken opinions; else, whatsoever is done or said, will be measured by a wrong rule; like them who have jaundice, to whom everything appears yellow.

It Arrived

What an educated change we deliver?
Certainly decisions change the desire
In the sense that plans are concocted
That mock me and you. Jaundice
Arrives,

An ailment of distrusted history,
What can mean the difference?
Why do planets solve our lives from the stars?
Illnesses melt into a pot for all those awake,
Some happened to be gross and malignant.

On A Birthday Cake For Dying Rabbits

Storm clouds laughing over bowling alleys where
No one spends any real time in-
And the jaundice east blowing out the sick
Candles on a birthday cake for
Dying rabbits:
And this is my toy sent spinning out onto
The concrete field,
Covered with so much graffiti, like tattoos
Around your neck,
And the airplanes coming across you
Carelessly every night, but never having the mind
To look down and see.

Old Is Always Gold

Saved for the rainy day
opened the treasury
out came an old PARKER
still stalking
a glassy black beauty.

Sheets of paper
feigning to be white
without any malice,
margins and lines
showing signs of jaundice.

Yellowed dampness
of hard bound diary
thanking for redemption
and
praying for salvation.

Taunts also heard loud and clear,
‘take some rest

A notable scratcher in the wilderness

The scrawny who comes early in the morning
And scratches the lotteries here till noon for good luck.
I hear the creaking inner scream of his misery
And everything was written on his jaundice face.
He doesn't cry perhaps all the tears could have dried.
The wildfire brought him the catastrophe to his doorstep
And he lost his all valuables.
He is a newcomer to the homeless of this ugly world.
The burgeois river of democracy still flows silently
And he cuddles his beloved wife and the pet chihuahua in his fading dreams.

One Lonely Night

I thought to write of love;
And did, until the critics tracked me down,
To warn me of the blackout in the town...
No lights above.

No lights above, no voices raised in praise,
No worth in words, no thought for life or love,
But scarecrows that will turn away the birds...
On silent days.

And love then wheeled about,
To threaten of some dull monopoly
To halt my pen and stall my mastery,
And turn me out.

There’s little love to write;
Distemper is endemic in the race,
And jaundice is a peril of the eye,
To leave us stare at some receding face...
One lonely night.

As It Was Written

Earth, earth,
riding your merry-go-round
toward extinction,
right to the roots,
thickening the oceans like gravy,
festering in your caves,
you are becoming a latrine.
Your trees are twisted chairs.
Your flowers moan at their mirrors,
and cry for a sun that doesn't wear a mask.

Your clouds wear white,
trying to become nuns
and say novenas to the sky.
The sky is yellow with its jaundice,
and its veins spill into the rivers
where the fish kneel down
to swallow hair and goat's eyes.

All in all, I'd say,
