    Off-The-Cuff Morning stillness in the cool

    He would own the world

    if he could. Destroying everyone and everything because they couldn't live up to his unattainable preconceived ideas. Then he would turn inward and destroy himself, because he couldn't bare to be alone in the misery he created.

    A silhouette shadows the mind,

    Laughter

    It's funny when I almost fall, Or when my dog can't reach her ear. I giggle at the jokes you tell, I smile because it's crystal clear. I like it when it's all green, And I spot a patch of violet, I glow inside to see my life, And know that I'm the pilot. The tinkle of a slinky...
