Ever Falling

Images fill the cyber sky,
Mad logics, worse than Wonderland,
Parting the real world with
Offensive slurs and storms:
Too many to count, and somehow
Even with so many resisting,
Nothing seems to change – all
Caught like a waterfall that is
Ever falling and ever held back.


Elements of Everyone

A hundred subtle vowel and
Consonant changes – inflections that
Challenge the ear of strangers with
Elements of everyone you know:
Nanoscale bits of people absorbed
Through life and reflected back.


Dare

Don’t ever
Allow Excessive
Reason to coldly
Erase your dreams


Be Still

Sometimes (thought too rarely, in truth),
I like to sit and be still, to
Listen to the world and
Empty my mind of thought, of plans –
No worries, no inner monologue: a
Calm, tranquil pool of water, too often too
Easily unsettled, unbalanced, or drained


Enduring Contradictions

Popular in word
Around the world
Though uncommon
In practice.
Enduring contradiction:
Need immortalized in shouted
Creeds building up to
Empty promises.


Nearly Inconceivable

Impossibly
Major yet somehow
Possible – in theory
Or, at least, in
Some futures: Nearly
Inconceivable, with
Noisome overtones and
Grueling implications.


Good?

Moaning and groaning your way
Out of bed or
Resetting the alarm and
Napping again until
It’s too late: there’s
No other choice.
Get up! Get up! Get going!


A New Hope

Brought into the world for all
Our sakes: a gift to the family,
Ready-made, but also another chance, a
New hope, however uncertain, for the future


A Gift

Even one person
Liking your work,
Asking for more, or even
Talking about it
Is such a gift, a surprise,
Of surpassing sweetness that
Never quite fades away


If Only

What we call those lucky
Individuals who seem
To know who they are, what they want, and
How to get it.

If only they could
Tell us what “it” is.
