Let's Find It! (Nov 24, 2008)

Let's go on crazy weird adventures, Tony.
Let's go on crazy weird adventures, Bob.

Where is that animal within?
Where is that crazy primal essence of life?

Let's find it!
Let's bring it out to the people!

Coulda Been (a few days ago)

You coulda been mine, yeah...
you coulda been mine, but...
...yeah, you coulda been mine.


Dream Roads (June 23 2007)

Walking down a familiar dirt road,
I feel content,
and then I realize
    I have never been there before -
  except in other dreams,
    and that there's a whole
    landscape I visit over and over
    in dreams (and memories of other dream roads)
and then I realize
    even those memories
        are dreamed up.

Jenny It's Friday (Dec 15, 2006)

it's friday
and I want a hamburger,
and if it was summer
we could walk down
to Serio's
and get some,
so where the heck are you?
And where has summer gone?

And Love is Like (May 11, 2005)

Love is like
    a demon loan officer
    possessing and re-possessing
        my heart,
    demanding timely payments
        of imagination and memory,
    held at bay
        only by obscure signs
            of blood and fire.

And love is like
    a lion you find unexpectedly
    in your home.
You fling scraps of poetry-covered paper
    at it in a wild despair,
        it will be delayed long enough
            for you to escape out the

Love is like a tornado,
    scattering your carefully arranged loneliness.

Love is your shadow.

Oct 27, 2008

Caught up by desire,
suddenly afraid of a real yes
because of "what if?"
