  105.     

Once a Year

At Christmas
We pay our respects to the truth—
The interconnection of all
Mankind

Then we lay our sentiment
On a New Year’s day
In a freshly dug grave

And go on
In the ensuing winter spring
And fall

With our enduring
Malefactions.

  106.     

Optical Illusions

We wrap mythologies around our brains
Magicians’ blindfolds
To trick our eyes into a certain way of seeing.

They shape and limit our trespass upon this earth
Hurtling us into conflicts of our own magnificent ill design.
Our petty grievances languish in the bowels of succeeding generations
Laying waste to the promise of an innocent child.

Only the final blunt thrust of Death’s indifferent sword
Cuts through the Gordian Knot of lies
And stops our tinkering hearts
From beating.

  107.     

Orbits Around the Moon

I am caught in time
in a timeless place
no borders, no boundaries
just psychological bolts
that rivet the mind
play sad tricks
on an innocent heart
and no measure of question and answer and
seeming logic truth
can matter the space
of a cosmic
dream
that has no borders, no boundaries
in a timeless place…


(Previously published in Indie Journal, Oct.1999; Dream International Quarterly,2001)

  108.     

Palomino (haiku)

Palomino hooves
fly across the barren plain
warrior's heart unbridled
