Still Life

                                        ... lover of still life 

                                                                 ... your wild expressionism caught me by surprise

                                ... heart full of karmic knots

                                                                              ... I kept wanting to call you Richard

Life Goes On

                                                                an occasional squabble breaks out


                                                                as baltimore orioles

                                                                gobble down grape jelly

                                                                but order

                                                                is quickly restored                 

                                                                and life goes on

The Forgotten Dream

                                                     ... held up by rusty nails and prairie grass

                         ... the forgotten dream bows low

                                                        ... asks the wind for one more summer

Outside of Zion

                                  ... outside of zion a coffee shop /
 on the blackboard a recipe for chai 
                        ... in bibs and hemp (she might have been me):

                                                                          ... this is what spring tastes like
