Wonder.

What steals it away?
Our curiosity and awe –
Nature or nurture? What
Displaces our joy of discovery with
Endless ennui for such
Ridiculously wonderful things?

Like My Mind

Left in a very specific place
Over here (or over there?)
So that I’ll definitely find it.
Terrific.


Arrogant Delusions

Putting emotions on the
Line by pretending, or more
Accurately, deluding yourself (a
Need all too common) – its falsehood
Slowly revealed by time.


Drama Lives

Drama lives
In the slightest slight
Verified or imagined:
A cycle of absurdity


Art with a Spirit

Hard work makes
Art with a spirit and a soul that
No factory line can even
Dream to achieve, yet those factory and
Mill-made pieces undermine and diminish
All the effort, vision, and
Diligence poured into each piece – due to
Everyone’s unrealistic expectations of price.


Overwhelming Exhaustion

Initially, we try to
Negotiate the ins and outs,
Telling ourselves that the
Right skills will take away the
Overwhelming exhaustion so
Vexingly integrated with
Each and every social gathering. Then,
Racked with conflict at each invitation, we’re
Tormented by the question:
Share the fun or enjoy the quiet?


Determined Ignorance

I flinch from the
Neon glare of the reasoning
Error: Has it truly been missed or has
Xanadu’s illusory appeal overridden its
Precedence? Has survival bred this need, this
Longing for ignorance when it aides a goal
In spite of eventual retribution by that same willfully
Concealed flaw, a trap of their own creation.
Antithetical to reason, to self preservation, yet
Barring an improbable epiphany, the
Lingering conflict will be cast on another –
Error mortared to error by determined ignorance
