Keeping Up

Have you seen the ad about a fictitious media platform called Woo Woo? Though it seems ubiquitous in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I live, I’ll assume that you haven’t. The ad shows two nerds in an elevator, standing behind two much hipper people. One of the hipper people asks his buddy if he’s […]

Winter Wind Blows

Sometimes it is so simple to feel depressed Just maintaining an even keel a big success Bleak views of our ills constantly accessed Slip into a tortoise shell, hide in that recess I am run down, tired of facing terror, fear In the world and what is happening here Clamor for us to find a […]


My heart seeks answers To questions I do not know Know to ask or answer No, musings I do not Understand understanding I cannot ponder Wonder which I cannot conceive Tenants of faith I do not believe Existence, nonexistence Always, ever Always never Everywhere, nowhere Yet always, always In the center A pawn of fate […]

Serial Tuesday ~ Toliver

Chapter Six (cont.) Toliver found the walk back in the dark unremarkable, the sky shrouded beneath dark clouds. Joad showed him his domicile, how to key the DiNAlock® and left him.

What would it feel like, any fun, to live to be one hundred My imagination tells me it would be less fun more dread With luck, still shuffling around, able to pee upon my shoes Not rolled about like deadwood by someone I don’t choose Perhaps I will be non compos mentis and it will […]

None May Know

Imagine, how do we tell our own love story Do we believe love exists in a state of grace Fear it will be a stroll along life’s razor edge A plunge into the deep, head first, eyes closed Do we make our dive unsure if we can swim Will love’s buoyancy help float us on […]

Last Note

One more bullet shot from one more gun You’re sure this must be the very last one Yet, once more death and once more pain And you know it will start all start again One more bomb falls from one more sky Is there really a reason for us to ask why One more terrorist […]
