    Are You A 21st Century Man

    I dreamt of now beloved Dodge Coronets, I never could love The same way now. And of travelling And escaping, Of family and turmoil And barely made deadlines. I dreamt of sneaking by And of laughing And of needing to get somewhere. And I woke tired And renewed Closer to the Earth And to the […]

  • 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.

And because there’s no question between life and death (as we […]
