White Caps

The white caps


Rocky roads


What’s around the corner

Where the path has lead

Wind at sea

A churning ocean




I Don’t Think

I am not certain

Or not clear of mind

To know

When is the right time

To ask

Whether I can continue

On a narrow path

Wander of in embarrassment

All the while

I now refuse

To just think

We Think

We think

We are happy

We think

We are free

We think

Of opportunity

We think


In truth

Or consequence

Are we perceiving reality

Or just contemplating


Are we free

Are we full

Of opportunity


At best

Not at all

At worst

Boil it Down

Boil it down

To the simple

Undeterred truth

How uncouth

To lie and deceive

Achieve the goals

That were rolled up

Your sleeve

Boiled down

To simple


One stolen

To get wheee you are going

Impound Personality

Impound personality

Strong and observed

Held me up

With a steel nerve

Hoping up

But mostly let down

Impounded personality

Takes my own desires

Just beyond the ground

A Forgotten​ Wagon

A forgotten wagon

An old school bus

What we throw away

It falls back on us

With no weight but


That the metals sitting


Well past the end date

Forgotten wagon

Will be torn down

As mother nature

Will surely


Oral Carbon

The exhaust

We inhale

Becomes a part of the


Of our being

Consumed in quantities

Large and unseen

Carbon emitted from the streets

Of fire and burning

Of the eyes I see

The carbon lung

Break or Broken

Some days

I feel as if I can break

Fragile and easy


Are more broken

From the get go

Getting along


So the ebbs and flows


Growing up

Growing old

We learn the right way

Wrong way to

Don’t hold too tight

Or the cold can get you

Please Lower the Cart

Lower the cart

So I can fit in my belongings

Holding hope

Heading west

With a soul so longing

What cannot fit

Can not be moved

All the rest

Will be forgotten

And smoothed

With time and separation

One day away

A new days vacation

Upon the cart out loved collections

Up the street

And beyond the intersection
