I Write This To Remember

Errands (WHAT ARE YOUR UNOFFICIALLY APPOINTED ERRANDS?)

And I Smile ( Little Little Bird)

Where The Weird Actually Tried To Turn Pro

the earth is our mother



This Snake

All Of Who I Was

Where The Dead Don't Mind...

Peace Where There Is No Opportunity

Night Train

What Could a Death Meet-Up Have To Offer?

Someone Send Out A Search Party

I Wish God Had Better Magic

Canis Latrans

What's With The Lead Overshoes?

How Does It, How Do You Matter

THE POCKET DOOR

Like The Wind In The Middle Of The Night

The Hoping

This Is It

The Inner String

For Another Mean New Sun.

Some Children Have Nightmares (tentative title)

Nameless

wandering the rolling hills ...(written for his model)

All The Changing....

HOME

Lonesome Love

two out of three people

A Start Again...(I Green-Dreamed Again Last Night)

cat speech

Funny, Not Funny

All In The Family (Family, What A Concept)


for some family is
hearts
secure arms
compassion
words that are warm and heal minds
for some family is
brokenness
fists
alienation
words that maim and steal peace of mind

why is there the ache
the need
for family
belonging
connection

different definitions arise
for us all
through out experience

I pretend sometimes
I know the definitions
but I also pretend
I'm an orphan
because
I know I have been left
by the wayside
and I don't know why in the world
I would want to enter in
anyway
to this family

it doesn't adhere
to any definition
in any dictionary

there shouldn't be any rules
nor compliance tests

when I look at the vast number of homeless people
and wars
I begin to understand
there is little family
humanity or family--
what a concept..............
