    Just Words

    The words they just don't seem right. Even though, they come from me tonight. They come easily, lies slipping through. Can there be truth? Can I make them true? "Just words" I think, but there strong as steel, fake as Barbies. Fake things trying to be real.

    Ave Caeser

    Ave Caesar No bitterness: our ancestors did it. They were only ignorant and hopeful, they wanted freedom but wealth too. Their children will learn to hope for a Caesar. Or rather--for we are not aquiline Romans but soft mixed colonists-- Some kindly Sicilian tyrant who'll keep...

    The Taste Of Morning

    The Taste of Morning Time's knife slides from the sheath, as fish from where it swims. Being closer and closer is the desire of the body. Don't wish for union! There's a closeness beyond that. Why would God want a second God? Fall in love in...

    Love Letters To A Huntress

    Careful white sheets Pitbull silhouettes, a couple colorful pills. Their military mentalities statuesque under the cross, Leave me alone, concrete faces. I crawl out from under the thorny brambles of marriage and childbirth, a young woman's nightmare and obligation. I want a...

    ---(a quote from Brooks Atkinson)--- It takes

    most men five years to recover from a college education, and to learn that poetry is as vital to thinking as knowledge.

    Regret

    You told me that you loved me But the distance fell apart You told me that you loved me And then you broke my heart You told me that you loved me No matter what I do You told me that you loved me I wish I said; "I do."

    The Absolute

    No mind, no form, I only exist;    Now ceased all will and thought; The final end of Nature's dance,    I am it whom I have sought. A realm of Bliss bare, ultimate;    Beyond both knower and known; A rest immense I enjoy at last...

    Here I am, in the exact place I wanted to go,

    There you are, stuck in the feeling of "I don't know". People I meet form place to place, Leave me here without a trace. You come along and you tell me, You're so beautiful, can't you see? I try and try to do my best, But I just fail, unlike the rest. Pained in sorrow and misery...
