All & Awe

Within the all of
It, is the awe of it all;
We end to begin
And imagine
Time and again

Walking
On the wild
Side
Of things
As memory

Brings
You back to me
Through the cry
Of love’s laughter;
Yet,  I don’t know why.

Collector’s Items

It is a lovely surprise, to remake
Acquaintances of old 8tracks, cassettes & even older
LPs & their B-sides…desperately

Trying to parley & laugh
Oblivious to the obvious recollection & retrospection
Of decks & phonographs. it is

Copacetic from a collector’s
Point of view to find love at first listen
Or fall for them all over again.

Compass

Do not depart 
From your direction before  
You’ve found your way.

Higher Learning

By
All
Means, then–
Let us be
Autodidactic
No matter
How lost
The
Cause

Purging our minds of indoctrination

It
Will
Never
Matter how
Much shouting, marching
& rioting we carry on

It
Shall
Be in
Vain, merely
Impotent gestures

Unless we end our miseducation.

At the Confluence of the Streams of Consciousness

In painted voices
I journey to the urge
Within the fire of 
Thoughts heard & impressions felt
Building bridges across fears.
