Fair Weather House 04 04 2021 nj

Fair weather house

some leaves blow across the porch

and a car down the road

makes a soft whoosh noise

Fair weather fortress

not really thinking

foul weather would ever arrive

like it did before

of course the hot sun

concentrated down

the entire neighborhood cried

and ran for shade

fair weather house

did not take insults well

like hail on blustery days

and that tornado nearly, …

well the sun shines again

for few minutes

time to forget all that

bad wolf weather

but just kidding of course

I’ll be around back

installing shutters

that actually shut.

Take Modern Man 04 03 2021 nj

Take modern man

feeling for the door

lying in a pit

lying on the floor

take modern man

holding over others

taking what he can

suffer them than him

take modern man

this goes back forever

opportunist plans

a dreadful life discover

when things fall then in pain

and  losses slip through hands

angels bow their heads

and take modern man apart

only lost at sea?

what a comfort that would be

un-tethered soul to float away in space

adrift among some random stars

I’m going to mesa town 04 01 2021 nj

I’m going to mesa town

I don’t know how to act

maybe someone can help me

if I dare to ask

Of course the fear of trolls

and bullies on the train

I’m going to mesa town

the rain is coming down down down

and though everyone around

tellin me “we’re all around you boy”

a spring is coiled in my thoughts

but it’s just another night -it’s cool

Pressure can a pressure can

illusions grand for fear makes fools

don’t remove that junk

your life is so screwed up

I’m going to mesa town

a gig that wasn’t true

caught on phone another light

I slip away from sight

A Wonder 03 30 2021 nj

A dwelling built for Ishtar

across the virgin snow

the dogs are pulling steadily

the conflict far below

across the night the endless trail

and wounded all alone

in this big space and blowing cold

and doubts of seeing home

across the thresholds of unknown

the dogs are raising howls

from what they sense

as we enter blizzard snow

across the seventh plane of Ishtar

and claws must do or die

a conflict from beyond our spirits

a wonder we are here.

Down and Up   03 30 2021 nj

After so much time has passed along

the quiet streams or avenues bright

of days and nights  and seasons so,

these times and mornings dreary

No person can just stay as still,

static and unchanging.

like molecules in motion’s throws

to go from time’s far ranging

to rise again in strength and striving

effort, work is not a thought

yet bones deep creaking will ignore

and if giant trees are weary

as person going up their days

or a person going down

for one night of sleep in some warm bed

and the sky wheels ever ‘round 

Almost a Year 03 19 2021 nj

The tall tree makes a long shadow

 that goes way down the block.

Time has flown and how the illusion

 of Moment seems so slow

A man gets up from the bench

And walks away down the sidewalk

Some birds still fussing

Before sunset arrives

The Eastern sky is beginning to darken

Some windows reflect

The orange sun in the West

And then that mood cannot be stopped

Emptiness where no fullness

Was expected

Slow to turn from day to night

But it’s been almost a year already

Afraid of Being Lonely 03 17 2921 nj

I am at some cold night cliff

Overlooking  the trail you’ve left in space

The earth and sun hurtle through the galaxy

And the galaxy hurtling through the infinitude

My soul screams to you

Don’t go!!

A few little stars

Is all that looks back

When it’s my turn

It seems you will be

Light-years away

And so that’s it then

I don’t blame you, really,

I’m just afraid of

being lonely

And for you, too.

Flood Tired 03 12 2021 nj

Flood Tired

I sorta wanna say something

but since the shed got swept away

you mumbled something incoherent

huh? What was that you say?

fruit cup tragic comedy club

transfer the sins away

sit around and get all fruit cup

or just do the damn work today

why in hell- they called you in

to work and get it done

blow your friday paycheck

can’t remember, that much fun

rumble life in some old truck

did you sign up for this?

No more farm now since the flood

and no one your gonna miss

Can we give up especially when

this non exisiting life is gone?

I know you’re so tired, all of us

well, I was gonna say, if you did and so on

Headin’ Home 03 08 2021 nj

I didn’t know

you can’t get back

you can’t get back

to anything you’ve known

overlook

we overlook the small things

But they’re not small after all

are they?

Can’t go back to bed

that breakfast was so good

it was so good

it should never end

I never knew

everybody knows

don’t they?

The roots are an illusion

Like magic

a magic show

that we can hold

our damn wrong beliefs

that glues together

the world we know

the world we know and

can barely stand

Hold onto land

objects in your hand

and get back home

the home is gone
