In Plain Sight

Over the hedge

In plain view

What was stolen

Was witnessed by me

And you

No doubt cast

Over the shadow

Of memory

What happened in that

Moment in history

Will live forever

In infamy

Onion Opinions

Onion opinions

The popular trend

Begin again and again

With the same refrain

Said for days

A lazy sleep

Will wish me away

From the stinky options

Of spoiled onion breathe

Upon a delicate day

Casts shadows of death

Beyond the Nose

Beyond the nose

Of the dogs of democracy

Voluntary crazy

We have come to be

No sight

Or sound

Could bring us back together

Now

Where the differences divide

Has dug in quite far

Full of liquid melted tar

Beyond the nose

Will be more problems

Where our senses

Can’t go

Critic Stare

Critic stare

With certain vision

Free me now

From my own prison

Of words and defeat

Before I meet the road

I am supposed to be on

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

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
