16 Fluid Ounces

16 fluid ounces

On a can

On a table

In a bar

Around the corner

Screams out

To drink

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

Party Weight

When the good of the party

Outweighs the good of the country

What have we done

Me the creator

Me the enabler

I run from the words

That cast truth in

This day

It’s up to me

And you

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
