No Longer Ours

No Longer Ours ~~~~~ The end of an era, so-called. Not the end of all, perhaps. Unknown for now, until Some future now, connected; Contiguous, not, in theory, continuous. Then, is that us, gone? Merely an era in time, between, No relationship but time, flowing, A rolling stream, raging River, fed by tributaries or, one […]

Forget How We Remember

Forget How We Remember Variations on a theme by Shane Koyczan ~~~~~ Forget how we remember. Forget the games we played in May that should not be played in December, Since each bullet shot comes from a bigger gun And we always keep them loaded just in case. We court each human with enmity and […]

By Your Choices

By Your Choices ~~~~~ I grasp my time, my life, my being, Like the blind men and the elephant. What I perceive not what I’m seeing. It may be my fire’s just on my pants. Chasing after truth by concocting lies, Mystic brews that obscure and reveal. All my victories, failures and my tries, Perchance […]
