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

Define Future

Can we define the future

Decide with knife and suture

What will be remembered

And forgotten

Is the past obsolete

Or a defining feature

Of what growth must be

Debating

What will lead us forward

Or what holds us back

Can we define the future

And be so matter of fact

Some will be dismissed

Some gathered

My own mind

Would rather

Be in the moment

And experience reality

Not technology

Depressions ridden

Alphabetically

Future

Or

Past

What will go

And what will last

Rainy Lazy

Lazy rain

On a Monday

New Year’s Eve

Hours away

Bring the fresh start

Without the clouds

Doing their part

Come new year

In due time

Start again

Feeling fine

Lean In

Lean in to hear

The words spoken softly

Worth waiting to hear

Every moment

Every cheer

Lean in time

Lean in past and future

Teach me

With the lean in

Straight Ahead He Said

Straight ahead

With no deviation

One handed guide

Swiftly through the nation

Embalmed with lies

Far and wide

You could see the twinkle

Lost in his eyes

Straight ahead he said

With no remotes

Stay consistent

Stay in course
