You Are (I'm Here With You)

Joyce Will Soon Be Seventy-Something

All Too Clearly Now

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



Like a Small Child Tucked Into

If This Is Any Art For Which You Care

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

in-EFFECTIVE (Fragile)

From The Point Of A Star

Someone Send Out A Search Party

If I Were Your Island....

Spokes Spoken

Plain Speakin' (Lyrical Poem)

All Beings Considered

It Is The Rain

I Talk To A Machine In My Darkness

I Long For Stars

This Is It

Its Their Problem

Not For The Bloom of Tears Cultivated These Last 100 Years

the life and times of Medusa

Max on the max

Your Next New Dying Black Swan

For the Years of Dancing (Dance Hall Days Gone)

Make (of) Me A Snow Angel

Someone Burned The Trees

Crowded Out

Sometimes Love Comes With Electricity

I Feel Fine(r)

Try To Have A Good Night

Better To Bend Than Be Broken (CHANGE)

I See A World



the aim of the writer
the artist is
to stop time

its an impossibility
an insanity
but how we try

its a way of seeing
transfixing the eyes
focus of steel
honed
sharpened
razor thin

I am here
this is what I saw
my photograph made by my eyes
and filtered though my heart
see it
and wonder at what I saw
how its colored by who I am
and where I have been

in a world over-run
by ants of people
I'd like to remember
my vision singular
and telescope outward
from what's here within

I see a world
magnified
detailed
some days
I no longer feel
in
