All hopes embers

How to endure
This infatuation 

When the touch of your hand
Is crucifixion 

And every glance
Enflames my soul

Yet better this than a 
Conflagration 

And all hope’s embers
Growing cold.

The bad poet is back

This poet simply can’t 
Reach people 
He ascends but 
Doesn’t steeple

He thinks of his work as 
An odyssey 
A pearl
Without the modesty

If only he had a 
Coherent theme
A well turned phrase 
Or a poignant scene

But he just doesn’t have 
What he ought’a
And drivels away 
Like water.

The places where we die

Some deny them, some prepare
But we all know we’re 
Going there 
To the places where we die.
They might as well be in the stars
Mine on Venus, yours on Mars 
Because we only know we’re 
Going there 
Not the when and not the where 
Only that,
Waiting there 
Are the places where we die.

Blades

Is there something about grass 
Close-clipped
On lawns and playing fields
That’s blithely overlooked?

Its qualities seem simply put:
Offsetting herbaceous borders 
And yielding underfoot.

Or is every blade like everyone 
Quite different from up-close
Unique and undervalued 
Unsung and lachrymose?

Your time is your own

Leave your clothes on the bank 
Leave your clothes on the beach 

Get out of your depth 
Get out of their reach 

Resurrection is at hand
Your time is your own 

Drown for your life
Sink like a stone
