    Life Is Full Of Walls

    A dim image of peering out of a window at a brightly colored mural declaring rainbows of love and walks through the city zoo, Sitting on the wall, feeling her legs dangling over the cement blocks as she sang with her friend, Sliding down the cold hard wall next to her mother...

    The wealthy bought everything.

    Young People Romanticize Death

         I work with a lot of younger people and correspond with many.  A common thread I've noticed is their fascination with the death of somebody they may have known.  I don't think they recognize the permanence of being dead, or just how routine other people's death becomes...

    Strings

    I can say things from behind a guitar without offending somebody, than I can from behind a cup of coffee. I wonder if that's what drives a poet.

    People rather see, hear,

    or think what they want and deny the truth or even logic at that matter. If a banana says it's and apple long enough it'll start to believe it.

    who say that they are proud to be White, Black, Asian, Latino etc. Then I've read some that say they find it difficult to like other races and some other very hurtful sentiments. What I can't seem to understand is why the need to say you're proud in the first place? Was there...

    No matter how much you've tried to correct

    things and do things right, undo mistakes, make amends, there are so many things in life that just can't be fixed. Makes me wonder sometimes, mostly when I feel as if I'm drowning, what is it I'm not seeing? I'm missing something. I'm not seeing the big picture. How did this...

    Society is judgmental.

    You Don't Have To Be

    People Wonder About Manorkill

         Manorkill is a place.  It is a place in the mountains where my mother, father, grandparents, and ancestors back to the early 1800's are buried.  It is where I'll presumably be buried one day too.      I don't know why this place in the Catskills was named Manorkill...
