Left four jugs
At the shore, pronounced our future loaves of bread in them
Then waved to the wind.

So we worship it.
They tie us to it apron string,

Words of A Dying God, Part I
Ever since I was a kid in college
something troubling has been on my mind,

and now matter how I looked at it all,

A Letter to My Father's Murderer
Although this is torture at best
I often try to make it real in my head

Just to do nothing at all
As we do this -we listen
To the quiet sounds around us
Then we hear our inner thoughts

Is that a lion or a large beige rock?

Summer rain, melting Arctics
and the lipids lining the nerves
in your brain. These are the metrics
of our times. Mere resolve

is not enough to take care
along the highway—you need wheels and prayer.
When you realize there’s no there there
that’s a scary day. End...Read More

That gloomy gleam in their eyes;
I cannot bear.
My heart explodes,
when it feels the vibes of despair.
The expectation in their eyes;
that which I cannot fulfill,
Drowns me in depths of sheer helplessness.

You told me all I need to know 
Without a single sound

Like a biting, flying insect

I hear you loud and clear
Your silence is an action

Premium Member Between The Lines
Once I wrote
A disastrous note.
You do not need to know its content,
Only to know what it meant:
Years of regret,
I ought to forget,
A matter of humiliation
From a self-inflicted situation.
What is in the past
May still hold us fast,
To say it is "another...Read More
