Asked Too Soon

~~~~~ Tell me the story of the man who kissed the moon, the woman who holds up the sky. Unless, I have asked too soon, you think I might be high. Though I have spent little time in bars, I have spent far too much in cars. Still, I always knew I could not escape […]

By Any Other Name

~~~~~ Would miracles be or seem, by any other name, so grand? Miraculous, magical, names for what we don’t understand. Magic, for some speaks evil, dark powers, we can’t define. Miracles, equally mysterious, argued as proof of the divine. Minds shut so tightly, some refuse to heed any dissertation; faith in their own unknown eschews […]

~~~~~ No longer will we require any high-school senior To recognize the words sagacious or prevaricator. I do not think that’s wise, to say I do, I’d be a liar, As the dumber we become, the lower we’ll aspire. The only smart things we’ll own are phones, cars And really, both are more intelligent than […]
