Not Turning Back

The velvet sky of dusk
borken hearts made of rust
shattered trust,
lies, lurking in the shadows

Roaming the lonley streets of chicago
full of sorrow
head held high with the lie
of being strong

But i'll see it be done,
i had won,
and i'll look through
the black and blue on my arm
because i know i wasnt wrong

I'll work through the darkest night
with my pride, and want to cry
I'll look at the past and still feel the
pain. but, i wont turn around or walk back
but trust me, i'm not the same
Becuase i know
I wasnt wrong

The Copyreader

I have been here a month,
sitting in a circle with others,
reading copy and writing heads.
Today I'm convinced
crime in the streets
will never stop
as long as
someone can write
and someone can read.
I spell 'ukulele' for Ulrich
and a strange continent of sweat
breaks out
on the back of my shirt.
'It's as big as Australia, '
says Ulrich.
At that moment I know
I'm letting another July
die in Chicago,
reading copy and writing heads.

Last Life

Roaming somewhere in the universe
a clang from an anvil
or a hollow resonance from the woods
is yet to reach me
otherwise I might be able to tell you
in my last life
I was a blacksmith
or a woodpecker

a painter, or a flower
if only I could recall
the face of an evening sky
still wet on canvas
or a brilliant dewdrop
precariously rolling
and rolling

a trace of cloud
a whiff of air...

(1993, Chicago)

Chicago Serenade

Evening
a desolate street

A car with its windows tightly rolled up
stops for the red lights

Suddenly
in the rear-view mirror
a dark figure
looming

Sir, buy...

The ashen driver
steps in fright on the pedal
and rushes through the red lights
like a rabbit running for its life

... buy some flowers
today’s Valentine’s Day

(1985, Chicago)
