Some Will

What If

Please Don't Bring Me Flowers



No Woman's Friend

Sometimes I Hear Him

Not For The Bloom of Tears Cultivated These Last 100 Years

Sometimes Love Comes With Electricity

A Little Bit of Harlem in Your Life

I Long For Stars

Every Time I Listen To the Wind.

Some People

She Is My Friend

Beware The Sign of Sagittarius

Need You (note of encouragement to self)

why not ask the cat?

The Un-Promised Land

I Travel Every Time I Think Of You

Poem Untitled, But, If Not For You

If I Were Your Island....

(You're) Still Here

I Know Most Who I Am When You Are In The Room

From The Desert

As Sick As My Secrets

Then The Little Silver Fish Came

I Keep My Ray Bans Handy

Upwards Into The Swirling Sea Of White.

He's There

Oh, Now, The Pink Moon

And Even Stars Die

You Are Not My Audience, I Just Borrowed You For Awhile

Some People



some people change
others never do
their roots rot in the soil
their trees never grew
some people change

some people mistake pain
as a thing to avoid
they see others who are pained
as ones to be ignored
some people mistake pain

some people judge it all
others live and compromise
some people never know
what it means to be wise
pick your battle stations
stop competing and comparing too
some people judge it all
and then their time comes due



Some People was directly composed to the page
in a matter of moments...I had some people in mind
when I wrote it.
