Unsolicited

Take the clock.
Take the wall it hangs on
& anything else you please.
You can have
ALL my time;
just leave the bed
& let me sleep
while you use it.

Cold Spring Harbor

Saturday night was dark.
Morning brought the man no light.
A cold wind blew and the lakeshore called.
He drove to embrace it.

Dancing I

You spin the ballerina.
Playing with her,
only a minuet. Echoes,
reverberating through the heart-
wood: the box you’ve placed me.

Starting Over

I wonder,
is this pain
any different
from what we shut out
before?

And how will we handle it
differently?
Escape?
Embrace?
Avoidance?

“counter-PUSH”

World’s pace quickens.
Dizzying rate sickens.
Conventional wisdom:
a new status quo.
Against the limits
#PUSH
Choose to live slow.

worms for tea

wandered across a small patch
small voice and a magpie watching
the dust rise from his dancing feet
all hoping there’d be worms to eat

Healing I

I
thank you.
My mended
heart beats.
Still
choking
broken pump
swallows,
in the space
between
words.

Those Were the Days

Back in the ’90’s everyone around me
found their own numbness,
through overwork, or liquor, or distraction.
So it seemed we were only normal.
