  81.     

One Without the Other

Life
when viewed through the prism of Death

Appears
in all its splendor.

  82.     

Parent Child

Every poem is an individual
A song with its own music
Its own unique voice
Its own particular way of expression
Suited, in form and style, to its own
Particular taste

Give it room
Allow it to breathe
Allow it to be different
From what you’d expect
And if you’re lucky
Sometimes it will surprise you.


(Previously published by The Stroll of Poets Society, July 2000)

  83.     

Pig Heart

People are getting uglier
All the time
Have you noticed?
Is it so hard to miss
The self-serving secrets in a
Deceiving eye
The jowls fat with pleasures
Sucked out of a dry well of
Insufficient solitude

The crack of our egos whipped
Into the crippled backs of
Groundlings
Taking the stage with flat-footed
Fury

Saber wits cutting holes in worn
Fabrics, too weak to darn
The needing sock
How foul the odor from our
Reeking tongue
The hairy shirt we wear
Laced with maggots
Throws us back in a reap of penitence
To the Darkest Ages of our once

Subliminal past.


(Previously published in Gangway, No.30-31,2004)

  84.     

Point B to Point A

The Big Bang was
Not the beginning but the
End of

What had been, and in the eons since
Fragment by atomic fragment
A new universe arises out of the dust
What was past is present once

Again
Relatively speaking
As of matter, of course.


(Previously published in Pink Cadillac, Vol 3, #4, Fall 1999; The Scrivener's Pen, Vol.3, Issue 3,2003)
