I used to like parties more, but now I'd rather stay at home and just chill...
No shocking, startling thrill.
There is not much more appealing than reading a book in the coziness of home, or spending ...
I will be here
sitting on this pavement
on this block
in this neighborhood
with my legs crossed
with a dog
with another dog with his bone
in front of my house
in front of the mammoth
Where’d you go?
I didn’t realize you were gone until I noticed I had lost the spring in my step.
I was knocking myself against walls. I was tripping over the dog.
I was petting myself.
It starts with the bagpipes.
The distant sound of horses'
hooves, the wind shuffling
through the birches. Young
men running naked through
the thorny bushes.
A girl drawing John Lennon on
a cardboard. Her mother weaving
threads through a Singer sewing
machine stopping to oil the crank.
The squeaky bottle spilling a drop
onto a garment.
The gray sorrowful faces
from the television. Memorizing
the lyrics to a Beatles' song.
Her father's razors rusty.
The crumbs I stole were not worth the decades I lost in prison, Finally I have risen,
From hanging on to those cold bars, And wishing upon all those falling stars.
Now I stand, On the other end of yet...
Old salty dogs, miles of ocean Ship of fools in the wind
Have no home but the sea Brave men facing the challenge
To meet their destiny
Hands rough like bark on a tree Skin brown from rays of the sun S...
I don’t know remember exactly when and how it started. Perhaps it never had a beginning, but had always been a part of my soul. Books had captured my attention since infancy, and stories lived on my t...
Came upon an Indian layin'
Dakota fields of terror
Slowly I came to thee
Wounded Knee Massacre
Smoldering flintlock by his side
Pale face graced with a half smile
Eyes of blue stare into space
He held time in his own hand,
swinging by a thin chain, all seemed unplanned.
The shock when he found out his lot, down in the pit of his stomach he felt a knot. "I'm too old and far too feeble to hol...

Mysterious paintings of unknown origin

Rusty keys of all shapes and sizes

My dearest Vincent, what did you mean by every flower?
Every hour you spent crying, I would have held your hand.
I’m ashamed to say, that still today the world is full of passings, And like yours, the...

It was fabulous In the beginning Only there was
One instead of four
So to pass through The threshold of hell
I had been summoned To pay a fee

It seems lately
Everywhere I go I see
Older incarnations of me
Possibilities Of what I can become An elder statesman, a con man
A sum of those parts Each at start
Reaching for finish As my timel...

One Foggy Evening
of dry mist and snow
I saw a strange lady
walking in a Black Cape
on her way to her Grave
As she turned into the Icy Forest
I could see she was not alone
For a Kind Old Gentleman
California skies soared overhead
as bike wheels screeched
on heated pavement,
stopping in an instance
at the Marshall Taco Bell.
Our group of hungry 14-year-olds
left no tray untouched.
My brother loo...
