Greed

I do not think greed a natural thing
Though it makes the heart of many sing
And the blood of almost all runs faster
At finding a good deal.

But the thing that greed tries to fill
Is - despite the object's possession - oft with us still,
For years can carry wounds
That years alone will never heal.

There is a middle way
That requites us from the bitter climb
Upholds a vision of things sublime
Poetry and prayer and friedship's deep currents
The meaning of being whole
Perhaps even the intimation of a soul.

Guidance for the Electorate in a Presidential Year

I have only one formula to share
Vote for the candidate you find most humble
The temptation to hubris being beyond
The capacity of most to measure.
S/he will have much to learn in office
Not having to climb over a mountain of ego -
Will accelerate this process,
Hopefully to the benefit of all
Including our children who are so often
Forgotten in the great councils.

Hamburger Girl II

The hamburger girl smiles nicely at my gray hairs
I look forward to placing my order with her
The manager can not tolerate the chaos of success
Sweeps in and takes my order
Delivers the product and is done
NEXT!
More was acquired than an ice cream cone.
Somehow, something precious and unspoken was lost.

Hamburger Girls

They are young. They are fun.
They know I like them.
'Would you like some ketchup? '
'No. I can not have it.'
The fries are hot though I am not
Yet still we love each other.
