In The Second


 

 

 

After the decision,
the irrevocable desire
to change your life

You must know:
you cannot settle
for the doubtful honor

Of remaining
merely passive,
a unit among humans

You get up,
and walk away;
leaving all those traps

Coming out unscathed,
fresh,
as if love were just born

And the disordered world,
a clot of blood:
pulsing against this very moment

Reap The Whirlwind


 

 

 

It’s coming, make no mistake
you cannot see
the elephant, feel the ground shake,
and say: I don’t
see any animal, that is an earthquake;
or maybe it’s my bowels, yes
that must be my mistake: happiness

In the great refusal, what a fake
where at least logic’s undeniable, you
don’t get stuck with the loser
or abuser, nothing but fear you choose
abandoned only to yourself again:
when you wake,
years from then, wondering

Working on a new book


Meanwhile there are my books for sale – with very reasonable prices, starting at 2.99. The reviews were all freely given, unsolicited and the praise thus very genuine….. I wouldn’t miss out on these.

You can take my photos&reviews here as a recommendation, in case you were wondering where to start.

Hopefully you can afford a few books for less than $10. Besides, we’d both enjoy that.

Writing Poetry


 

 

 

I use the computer and a pen,
when
I’d be more comfortable with flesh

Yours, specifically
on those certain nights
you cannot sleep

We write the poem together,
then: the words
across your thigh like fingerprints

Ready


What to do when
I’ve been
missing you, and
have no right and every reason to –

I stitch my smile on,
feeling
impatient for your arrival:
ready and willing in my denial
