When My Blues Are Gone

Expect Yourself

TONIGHT

I WILL RETURN

Silver-Tongued Devil



Within The Green Wind Becomes The Fall

Think On This--IF YOU WOULD

Open Lines

You Got Your Lilly Back

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)

Unwelcomed Like So Much Unfinished Business


you come often
un-invited
into my dreams
an intrusion
I'm tricked into welcoming

your fine hello
I cannot hear its
insincerity
and hallow-ness
its only a dream
after all

you charm
you cajole
you smile your reptile smile
being careful not to show
too much tooth

you convince
you close the sale
and sell the sizzle
I'm the one
your prize

in dreams again
I have been un-wise
and befuddled
my heart and head all a-muddled
the confusion you sow
is not subtle

sloe-eyed slattern
slink away to some other
with your vampire-like sleekness

prey on  some other
not on my kind meekness
I have banished you a hundred times

yet you find a way
to come back
unwelcomed,
like so much unfinished business.
