On The Pond

The waterfowl glides
Across the water, serene,
Its panicked paddling
Below, unseen...

Valentine’s Day 2018

I pulled the lever
Setting off the alarm,
AR-15, locked & loaded,
Ready to do harm,
What followed, to me,
Was like a video game,
Shooting you as a target,
Not knowing your name,
Or the others, all victims
Of my anger and shame...

Party’s Over

A rare happy event,
That chance will send,
Occasionally, and you
Don’t want it to end

Beer Zen

No need to go out
Just watch and wait
Embrace the null  of
One’s chemically altered state

Decision Point

Now and then
It’s better to stop
And start things over again
The key point
Is knowing when

A big stone keeps
Memories in chiseled words,
On top, a stray cat sleeps


Sometimes you just
Need to be strong
Suck it up and
Admit you were wrong
Then deal with what
Comes after it’s done
Retreat from the battle
Till the war is won...
