too little sleep, and
today i will inhabit 
a dreamlike space

Sunday, April 22, 2012


what am i thinking
damp pillow says fever dreams
cannot remember


something for earth day
what can i give the planet
....turn off the power

i skip and stumble
joy of words other and own
we reach and fumble

mutter and rumble
let us not in times like these
stutter and mumble

heavy i awake
from a revery of dreams
the weight of deep sleep

i mark time with these
verses in rhyme as i drive
a quaint doggerel

clock in kitchen slow
to live in the gap between
watch on my wrist fast

one can only hope
that the rewards of genius
will outweigh the costs

shadow cast on ground
flatten gravel's sharp edge
wait for foot to find

a day for yard work
the smell of earth on my hands
know few greater joys

one thousand and one
number of the last entry
and duly noted


sun up to warm me
here at the end of this road
blue sky before me

i want my old life back
Yes, the one i never had
the one i want now
