I like to fix things
somewhere about 18 inches
in front of my eyes

The Lord is my shepherd,
want not therefore shall I



I suppose craving falls under want

Give it up, man

The first step is admission
that there is even something
to admit

From there, it's basically painful.

Think about this carefully:

wanting to be wanted;
wanting to be known; and
wanting to avoid looking foolish.

All hardwired in.

Wanting to be read,
to be heard,
to be seen, even.

Sitting alone
should be simpler
than this


If I call your name
will you answer
or figure that it's not worth the pain

The look in a young child's eyes
when they thought
you were friends forever

Trees bend in the wind
and sometimes break

every day
the sun comes up

A gentle flame

The Truth has some ways to hurt
unlooked for
He gives, He takes away

So cruel it seems at times
to set us free
by dragging into the open

and no chance really to explain
or put in a word for beauty
500 meters high

at a sudden burst
of anger unlooked for
the creatures stagger, wounded

calamity, collisions
hope unwound
and left away

It's not right, you know.

A gentle flame burns
quietly in the night
not that way, again

Morning Rush

Limited Edition

Waking, dreamlands beckon return
from some ten thousand divisions of a week
but open ears, the inside
of my mouth
and pillow-turn of head
signal another limited edition day

loves and losses,
all stored away
