Philosophy 128

I figure a bunch of little nothings
add up to something.

Philosophy 129

People plop down
then build up
do things
poop a lot
eat the forest for the trees.

Philosophy 130

OK?
Whaddya mean OK?
It’s K L M N O, not O K.

Philosophy 131

New life
doesn’t replace old life
but does keep the game going.

Philosophy 132

Don’t hurt the hive,
care for the commons.

Philosophy 133

There are two times to write poems –
when the sun goes down,
and before it’s up.

Philosophy 134

Here’s to the ornamental grasses
the textures of the trees
the way of the wind
the weave of the rain
the day or the night mixed with each.

Philosophy 135

Life is a marathon
whose finish line keeps moving
down the road a piece
so you can’t win.

It’s like cutting onions for tear soup,
the recipe never ends.
