Renewal Mistakes

Renewal makes a difference

When you are all in

Cast out the doubts

But undoubtedly

Not perfection

Because mistakes

Are the way forward

Don’t overestimate

The destination

When the first step

Is forward

A New Need

Need anything

New or old

Bring in the bold

New ideas

People

Now is the time

For change

Michigan Heart

I want to know

But I don’t want to understand

How the smoke

Falls from the land

Where I grew up

On the southern shore

Michigan heart

Felt never more

So the gamblers gamble

And the steel men work

The street are empty

The money gone

From a crook

Where I grew up

I want to know

But I will never understand

Rev the Day

Rev the day

everything you have

A little you don’t

Go all the way

Even if you think

You won’t

Don’t back down

On easy premise

Test the limits

Impress

Slow Down Town

Slow down town

Summer heat

Bearing down

All around on a Saturday

Today we need a bit of a relinquish

Relish in a heat

Beyond the hot ground

Around this town

Be Right

Be right

Be arrogant

Belligerent

Cognoscente

Of the words

Used

Be opaque

With answers

Of abuse

Make the proper

Joke

At the proper time

What has happened

Stays behind the line

Be right

Demagogue of sport

Be right

Today

Tonight

Long Breaks

Long breaks

Is what it takes

To reconnect

With the words

That can be off

Or correct

Up in the woods

Or down flat on the deck

Taking these breaks

Is what makes

Me keep coming back

Baltic Summer

A studio in the shore ditch of

London

A fresh sea

On the coast of Chicago

As the summer rolls up

Its sleeves

Bringing more heat tomorrow

On a ledge

Cut from fresh grasses

And hedges

The summer rolls on

And wrinkles my shirts

Edges

Precedent in Presence

What comes next

What pillar to fall

While the justices

Disrupt

Peace for all

What can be attacked

And won

When mere human will

Is running thin

We set our own fate

Etched in stone

Now as the gavel falls

One by one

It’s each man and woman

For their own

Confusing Musings

Confusing musings

Of the art

Of distraction

Artificial attraction

The powerful few

Direct their efforts

To distract

The main crew

Abstractions of actions

And intent

No actions made

No messages sent

So how to tell the truth

Of the few

When lying is a standard

Act of the new forces
