Broken Glass

Art is Broken glass Cast into turbulent seas In time Washed ashore Polished and refined It forms the sands Upon which we lie Drifting away In warm silence Lost in the cacophony Of our own dreams

My Song

Younger than my age. Not safe for work. Articulate, sometimes. Liberal, always. I pulled a u-haul behind my jeep and I moved in, with myself. BIG sailboats out of the sight of land. Jeep in a Baja MX desert way out of sight of man. Wreck diving the Philippines. Sleeping bag under the stars in […]

Young captain, this aging ship.

When the mind and the body are in two different worlds, one seeks the other never meeting in between. Young is my heart and playful the mind. Drawn to youth and racing away the same. Foolhardy feelings lend to adventures and unsettling moments. Bold, gentle steps into the open I go. Many lives lived and […]

Flying and Falling

I took to the sky Imaginary wings beating into the void of space Earth rises to meet my gaze Tumbling uncontrolled it vanishes once again Am I falling to my death Am I only floundering every direction up Horizons roll into view Brightest points of light chipping away blue crescents I think for a moment […]

Emptiness

Build my life upon these dreams Comforts and cozies fill my thoughts Returning to a place familiar and warm Memories of achievement and joy Love, yes love felt and expressed The lie roles off my tongue like marbles on hill Expressed yes, but not love Comforts are facades hiding what lies behind Dreams are more […]

Piss-n-Vinigar

We come into this world full of piss and vinegar ready to take on the world, full of great ideas, able to do anything. Innocence is a beautiful thing still as yet uncorrupted. Then the world sees our zeal for life and pisses on us. Years later we sour, become jaded and realize we can’t […]

The Well

the well so deep, yesterday not so much today your love your friendship my guide my strength to fill the pit beneath me light is like words encouraging yet thin but your hand it breaks the stone it clears the path these wells that form deep under foot bored out by our own hands when […]

Ambient in the Dark

A warm glow fills the room with ambient life. It dances it’s colorful song in abundance just outside my window. I peer into the light. My restless limbs heavy as I turn. My dreams all but faded into the subconscious. The light beckons as it burns. The sound of my heart broken by a passing […]

No Ice Cream

Alone in a room Sitting Sitting Sitting Slow Down, the melancholy of Radiohead Wholefoods, Mac-n-cheese offending my wallet Joyous, my tongue tastes organic cheeses melted Eyes dead set in a window Rain Falling Falling Falling Cold in a well heated room Bustling city, this inclement day has your attentions Holiday of me A self imposed […]
