watching stars
watching stars
as they are swallowed
by clouds-
one season slowly turns
into another

once again
once again
pouring out my soul
onto paper-
wondering which will end,
the soul or the ink

a woman walks
a woman walks
down the sidewalk,
showing her age,
through some teenagers
showing their age

Granddaddy's tattoo,
"U.S.S. Idaho"

strange how some things
never leave my memory

my underwear
my underwear
scattered in three drawers,
some folded, some not-
cluttered mind full
of meaningless thoughts

the moon, planets and stars
in the black sky-
no longer able to
pretend all is well..

dive down to the river
and back up-
good news and bad news
on the same day

the sun falls
the sun falls
earlier tonight than
last night
and the thought comes-
cold darkness is coming...

the tree
the tree,
having no chance to see
the rest of the world,
is told ancient stories
by the traveling moon

    all that's left
    all that's left,
    the light fragrant scent
    of your perfume-
    watching you leave
    so many days...and nights

    take me with you
    take me with you,
    gentle midnight breeze,
    through the rain
    to see above the clouds
    the dreams I've never dreamed

    watching it alone

    the river
    the river,

    slithering through

    hot cracked ground,

    follows the sun

    that tells her sad story

    counting the list
    of the people who are gone
    that I want to see,
    but what would I say?
    what would they say?
