Parked car
grey day
rain rhythm roof

~ ~ ~

Heat rises
cold creeps
people lie

You got yr bear
you got yr butterfly
you got yr Pope in the would

Bone dance
birth to death
before and after

~ ~ ~

Such beauty surrounds
yet I stare at the ground
looking for dog shit

~ ~ ~

New green leaf
winking through
winter brown

~ ~ ~

Bluebells and forget-me-nots
old sun new risen
goldfinch glow

~ ~ ~

Republicans
are burning books in Texas
killing folk in Tennessee

Dark things
grow
fester

~ ~ ~

Coffee
in sip by sip
out one steady stream

~ ~ ~

The low body hum
of caffeine and cannabis
before dawn

~ ~ ~

Morning walk
five deer sleeping
where red-winged blackbirds play

~ ~ ~

In dim light
as evening evens day and night
silence thick with signal
distant traffic
burbling fish tank
clocks ticking
sleeping dog’s dream barks
and the ever-present slow hiss of reality
ringing in my ears

Be careful what you don’t say
it might define you

~ ~ ~

The silence that’s not silence
knows yes from no
knows quicksand of maybe
abyss of never
the endless of now

I go from room to room
time follows

~ ~ ~

The possibilities are endless
depends who’s looking when
or where
it’s a joke
a circus
and I’m the clown

I can say my way
quite cleverly
but you wouldn’t want to be me
ever
though strangely enough
I do
