YOU DO NOT GROW OLD

I Came From Water

Every One of Us Has a Door....

The House Is Alive

THEY NAMED ME ENOUGH



THE CRYPT OF THE KEPT AND THE KEEPER

UNDECIDED

THE MILES THAT ARE LEFT TO GO...

To Them, I am Dead, I am Dead

I Need To Fly

Burying the Dark

Knock, Then Come Through

Being Ourselves...

Like The Wind In The Middle Of The Night

Uncovered

The Blue Buffalo

Little Man Orange--My Mister Peanut Butter Trout

Not Someone's Grand Illusion

Wisdom of the Infinite

The Springtime Shadows Play Games Upon The Wall

THE STITCH IN THE TELEPHONE WIRES

Patch-Worked Trilogy

I Turn Forward

The Storm

Prairie Town Progress

Beyond Door Number Three

And Then It Wasn't Hard To Be Eight Years Old

Elise, Elise

A Bird, A Fly, A Cripple (Pity Poem?)

The Make-Up of Molecules

HOW

Haiku's In Triplicate

What Exactly Comes Next?


at night
making lists in my head
I'm cocooned in thought
and wondering
what it means
the very definition
of the end

how many are there
like me
thinking thoughts
they'd rather not think

I envy those who don't
count sheep
those who simply drift off
and drift away

days are long
nights even longer
its not merely a function
of the change of season
grasped in the moments
snared in my thoughts
making mincemeat
of the lack of reasons

where will this all lead

the side-goose-stepping
the averting and the aversion
of eyes
the wearing of sunglasses
the dull sameness and the
absence of smiles

walking the sidewalks
but feeling the miles
we're all separate islands
and
what exactly comes next?
