1000 Times I’ve Lived My Death

Headlights pierce the dark

Rain slams upon the pavement

City reflected


Stately, gothic bridge

River flowing far below

Cruel rocks gaze up


Speed up. See, just there?

That’s the place, jerk the wheel. Fall.

A freed soul: Darkness


Brooked in an instant

The vision recedes: Coward

Tha-thump, solid ground


On Repeat

I am repeated

Within myself-repeated

Tulmult repeated

House of Mirrors

It’s begun again

Descend, yourself, to madness

Feel the rush: free-fall 


Soul felt vertigo

Every color mixed to one

Or perhaps it’s none


There’s never an end

Spring dawns innumerable

You are the fractal


‘Round ‘n’ Around

A communal decision,

this stubborn belief in Reality.


Reality is perception-

Perception can’t be measured.


We live only in our minds,

we believe we exist, so we do.


We create the things we touch,

objects that can be felt, measured.


Sit on the stool we created,

perceive that it is there.


It’s there, but only in your mind-

Perception that can be measured.


One Mind

Other half of me,

have I kept you from freedom?

Can we share this space?


Feelings that aren’t mine

Impulses I push aside

Is it freedom lost?


But this is my mind,

there’s only room for the One.

Where do you belong?


Past Joys

Cattails gently sway

Bowed brown heads against blue sky

Mud squelches, frogs croak


Pine, Spruce, pierce the sky

Puma prints wind among trees

Coyotes praise the dusk


Musky scent of horse

Deep brown pools of liquid love

Soft lips tickle me



My love-ly prison

Watching old dreams through love’s bars

Heaven’s on this side
