Let's make a note on it There is a food court in Washington, DC at Union Station Okay Next we go inside that food court Some of the places use photos to show off their foods Some use signs Some have tantalizing hot bars lit up from which they serve the hungry travelers Then you come upon the New York Deli or whatever it is called Each morning at this fine establishment the employees set ...

The viking said The Christmas snow was sent Wrapped up in ribbon with a bow. He raised the bridge And said it's time to leave This land of pastels and jewel tones. So, I come now Asking to be loved back In the way my mom never was. ... Continue Reading

Have we failed These boys, these leaves Falling from branches and bridges In early autumn? All these September suicides--- It feels wrong having survived. ... Continue Reading

The years blur by like scenery. And I am at the wheel Of a steel silver car In a watercolor of city lights, And pretty neighbor boys, And the old chain stores With my childhood inside. I step out and into the scene--- Where have I even gotten to? The car is gone. The neighbors have moved. The stores are all closed. ... Continue Reading

In white impossible halfway house, goodbye, scratch long lost love. White mice, black rat dash and echo every hour in this white inhuman asylum of souls, holed up in heaven, without angels, undying, cold and numb. There’s a daydream. There’s high school. You and me. There we hang out, hang on, hang . . . . Our happy fix loves us more than we teens can love each other. There’s hope rope ... Continue Reading

It was just a fine day of bird songs that chime with the ray of sun, bush by bush-- the fresh leaves and prinklings from young spring. Perched by a path of dust and soil, I am just like the dust that is placed here. Once I shed my skin to the root of earth my arm is new, my blood is new, my flesh is new— my heart’s still the same. I am like the fruit that once was hung, now all th ... Continue Reading

I am learning that the important consideration is effort. Don't "half ass" anything. Don't live via "conjunctions disjunctive" (LOL). Watching last night the realization of a musical personality, an effort that shows itself like the familiarity of friendship, like sex after loss of virginity, stronger, more fully enjoyed for the repetition, I derived a pleasure that equaled and enhanced what ...

Maryland breezes across sand-colored cheeks and it has been a very long time since the sun has had this side up-- its honey glazes the sky and rays of white feel like a prism streaking the earth with a sweeping, strand colored sand, the sky filled with a bright blue. This soda-stained, worn wooden bench is a purple cotton blanket wrinkled against the yellow-white beaches of Waikiki, an ... Continue Reading

Free range chicken thighs, organic carrots, red potatoes, sea salt, pepper, Cajun dry rub, a baguette, sweet onion, olive oil, peanut oil, and sun-dried tomato dipping oil. Perfect in this peaceful house at the end of the world, three spirits joking, unmoved by the very music and television of heaven: After the gifts, friend, you gave me indebtedness more bodily than if you had donated or ...

Unheeded warning: An echoing Cry connecting us for a moment; My turn from the fright, The eighteen wheels, Annihilation with merciful, Merciful swiftness; Recognizing An imitation of our kinship In the wild gallop, The unschooled eyes--- Something natural and something young Crushed under the wheels. Given the choice I would feel nothing, least of all love. ... Continue Reading
