Only The Choice To Be

When People Go

The Day You Left (Words From A Half-Remembered Dream)

Wake Wake Wake

It Is In The Rain

Dream Goblins Of The Night

Wake And Remember

Unwelcomed Like So Much Unfinished Business

In March (Finally, Spring 2016)

All For Algernon

Weak In The Knees

The Finisher's Song

Nothing's Sadder Than A Rose

All Beings Considered

This Is It

Max on the max

I Long For Stars

Falling Leaf, Falling Man/Woman, Rising Star

So You Do (May 10, 2010 written for June 1987)

Its About Waking In The Middle Of The Night And Having To Write It All Down

Not For The Bloom of Tears Cultivated These Last 100 Years

If This Is Any Art For Which You Care

If I Could Be The Sky...

It Feels Better To Be Unfinished (Wish-Unspoken, But With My Eyes)

Crippled soul.
Crippled hole.
Everything sifts,
Has settled in.
Just think the bottle
Was where you started,
Where you began.
The needle
is where you will end.
Crippled soul.
Crippled hole.
Everything drifts,
Faster downwards.
The debt is in.
All the long years
You've put in
Have come to
A savings of lies
and annihilation.
There'll be no more reparations.
These are your wages.
You are a man
For the ages.
An inheritance
Of blown sand and wind,
An inheritance
Of uselessness,
Of self-sin.
Time is spent.
Time is suffocating, closing in.
Oh, the wounds,
Much deeper...
Oh, the price,
Much, much steeper
When we do them
to ourselves.
Would I join you
here in your private hell?
Dutiful daughter,
I might as well.

Do you write everyday? Keeping the words all to yourself? An internal combustible conversation.
Clearing away the barbs of grief, all the shellac that maligns you, like a painful colon
