nineteen pills
nineteen pills-
blood cells look for room
in my veins

she drives over
she drives over
the mississippi river
as I listen-
left to sleep again
with the moon

smoke rises
smoke rises
in a billowing cloud
then dissipates,
like thoughtless prayers
that deserve no answer

spring-like weather
spring-like weather
bathes the river side as
geese dance in the air-
the radio tells me
"chance of snow on sunday"

cellular phone
cellular phone,
making time go faster
on the road-
the hills get bigger
as the moon gets smaller

yellow glow
yellow glow
from a street light
through the limbs
taking the place of the leaves
and the summer sun

lone hawk
lone hawk
soars above my head
and the trees-
I'm left alone
with my cluttered thoughts

    hidden
    in the clouds

    on my mind
    on my mind
    constantly at night,
    the sun-
    if I could, I would fly
    to the east to meet him,
    and hang on him,
    telling him my stories
    until I'm done, in summer,
    when the moon
    is constantly at day
    on my mind

    friday night
    seems a lot like
    last friday night-
    writing the same words
    on the same page

    changing diapers-
    longing for the sound
    of their first flush

    trying to see
    trying to see
    our icy flowerbed through
    a foggy window-
    my faded memory
    looks for their colors

    my thoughts
    my thought,
    freezing half-way through
    it's sentence-
    painful silence
    in a winter night

    distant light
    distant light
    in another house
    turns off-
    looking to the west,
    waiting for the sun

    the warmth is gone
    the warmth is gone,
    chased away by the rain
    and wind-
    writing at midnight
    with swollen and stiff knuckles

    last persimmon
    hangs near the top
    of a tree-
    thoughts of an old man
    sitting on a bench

    tell me the truth
    tell me the truth-
    is it global warming
    or an ice age?
    70's in the east,
    blizzards in the west

    turning the page
    turning the page
    to write another poem
    helplessly-
    time won't stop - my feelings
    change from minute to minute

    spring flowers
    spring flowers
    growing out of the ground
    in winter-
    I'm suddenly awake
    in the middle of the night

    new limbs
    new limbs
    growing from an old one,
    cut short years ago-
    just when you think
    something's gone, it's back

    the difference
    the difference
    between need and want
    is lost
    as robins fight over
    a large piece of bread

    papers and pens
    replaced by unseen waves
    in unseen oceans
    humanity silently
    laughs and cries in unison
