Going Nowhere

Staring out his windshield,
His look is empty, void,
Perhaps he's tired, bored,
Or something nice got destroyed...

Impossible to tell,
All stuck in traffic,
In our car-built hell...

Weather On Thursday

Rain swept morning
Cool evaporation
And an expectation
Of thunder in
The afternoon
Air explosions after
A day gone too soon

Education In America

Brand new barbed wire
Glimmers under the sun,
Meant to defend us,
And teacher’s got a gun...
Bag check at the entry,
Because that is the rule,
To protect us from some
Random shooting fool,
Keep the compound safe,
Welcome to my school...

A Lesson

Come too late to discern
Her anger’s roots in love
Live and learn...

Berthed

The old ship at the pier
Makes a humming noise
Longing for the seas
Beyond the channel buoys

Fujisawa Terrace Mall

Enjoy the banal joys
A cloudy weekday brings
Trapped in the fun house
Made by the others running things...

Wrong Impression

He thought what
He saw in her eyes
Was wide open
Joy and surprise
But it wasn’t and
Hence his demise...
