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...

Gathering of the Palavering

She lived in
The Meek Building
off of Belmont Avenue
some will say about her...

she's not a meek girl
no, not at all

too colorful
for our tastes
and persistent

always spreading the sunshine
and bowing hello
like that little old birdie dipper

doesn't she know that sometimes it rains?

they stomp-mope about
dust motes flutter up
choking out the breathable air
but not her big-bold smile

they carry with them
fold-up-able yardsticks
in their backed-up-able pockets
blood red lead pencils
behind their donkey
bendable ears

they're staunch-ready for
for that first mistake of hers
so they can verify and rightfully declare
their rightness

but instead
she just a-glimmers
and ashimmers n' shines
and apositivly-glows
in their deep dank darkness

yet they jack-hammer hammer
n' palaver away

donkey see
donkey do-do
donkey be-nothing-but
all the day

they can't stand that
a woman like her exists
and the the don't like the way
she keeps to her own business

nor possesses her flair
for unusual persistence
Gawd, no!
