    Are You A 21st Century Man

    “Boys” This is for you. “Rise up fallen fighters, Rise and take your stance again” I’m sorry. It’s been so long, But I’ve been gone and I was lost because I kept looking for someone who wasn’t there and as I searched and searched I got further and further away and I kept seeing the […]

  • A Call To Hearts And Arms

    A Call To Hearts And Arms

    You are the anti strength and I don’t know If I’m strong enough to overcome you. You are chaos and I don’t know if I can put you in order before death I’m looking at the inversion you talk as if you know you talk as if you know things that I know that you […]

    Something’s Changed

    I am possessed I allow the possession like a child allows a tantrum I am like a child but then… why rage against that isn’t one rage enough and so the monster gets fed and the monster isn’t the child So what is the monster Am I a rudderless ship in a landless sea more […]

  • Miracle Grow

    No one knows below the shell We don’t live there Instead confusing our senses For what is the real real. The green and wind And perfumed forests Hamlets and white fences And pretty things and money Stickers and beer Billboards and bikinis And hospitals and tire swings They are all, only the beginning Or maybe […]

  • Love Behold

    Love Behold

    There’s no clamouring in my head, I want to hike and tend the garden and exhausted, settling in my bed breathe a breath of peace and freedom.   In a world where neighbours care enough not to interfere when your family is protected but not by those who’s tool is fear.   In a child’s […]

  • All around the Hamlet Mist shrouds green And pokes of roof Field unfurls to mountain and stream Runs over a billion stones The symphony of water And birdsong in the forgetting light And people spending time with one another. The Earth is not an elder It is not up to the Earth. The Earth is […]

  • The pump is primed It’s been some time Fertile and frantic Earth Fertile to give and frantic to live Every breath betrays The stillness of mist on mountains Even the animals Especially the animals Fight to survive Must fight to survive. And yet such sublime light And smell of gentle forest and hillside And lilacs […]

  • The Subtle Silk Of Life

    It’s a particularly sensitive morning I, personally, am wavering Between obsessive, habitual guilt And parental concern for my punishing ways. Between answers and questions Questioning the rightness of my life I believe in questions, More than answers And so, this goes with the territory. And because there’s no question between life and death (as we […]

    You Can’t Run Away From Yourself

    A boy has never learned real trust the kind that grows down deep internal his father points to what he must and all of it, it is external

    The Power Of Humans

    Two people loved each other It was clear and true between them They did not understand what hurt meant They did not know it was possible They lived, in love. There was a person who was afraid Why? We do not know And, for now, it doesn’t matter This person knows hurt is possible They […]

  • What is love

    What is love but the leftovers after the plates and dishes of the soul the scraps and spills and the dirty wine glasses lipsticked rims have been cleared away That, is love. What is love but the remains after the war and torn bodies have gone back to the earth and the machines are silent […]

  • Owned

    I dreamt of the most beautiful woman She was, to me, all my dreams And still a dream I was refreshed and reborn in her beauty Like spring grass or Winters sunlight The thawing of the world Was my heart for her I was no bigger than a boy, really So completely overmatched I existed […]
