let me know

let me know
clearly
and hear
you more

let me know
now and
never will
i retire

let me know
entirely
things you
want me to
know

let me know
let me know
let me know

my solitude

my solitude is shy
strangers question why
something weird is there
quietly hiding somewhere
and as days go by
someone wants to fly
birds get their scare
i want to put you in a square
my solitude.
a heavy human sigh
nights cannot deny
like who is to care
i don’t have to swear
in my room is a cry
my solitude.

at night

big mouth
you eat
mcdonald’s
at night

big mind
you think
libraries
at night

big skin
you feel
cosmopolitan
at night

big ear
you hear
heroine pop
at night

big eyes
you see
triangles
at night

big feet
you thump
shadows
at night

big you
you fight
madness
at night

TwoGether

one falls
& the other too
they meet
on the same road
they walk

one knows what
the other doesn’t
know and they
both see how
they agree

they feel
something majestic
something beyond measure

one falls
& the other too
what they know is
they fall in
love twogether

central west # 3

i saw you again last july
you can never deny
no more flood
and you’re no blood

i am no stranger
you know that
forgetting many names
i am in shame

i saw old faces
oh man how i’ve been
away sometime
forgetting many names

i am like a river
drifting from the crowd
you can never deny
who says i’m alright

i see you every day
oh man you have changed
i am no stranger
you know that

photograph

i’m a picture framed in glass
unmoving, unchanging
caught by your flash

dust settles on my surface
breathless, life’s many pauses
i’m trapped, attached

i can’t speak, unuttered
this sound is but you

of the first magnitude

star-shaped words
on grey stones

bursting rhymes
of life consuming

breathing new
heights of satisfied

love and resurrection
of a dead song
is played in
the morning sun
