LEAD/FOLLOW

The poetic pulse
synchronous sound
each of us lost
together what we've found

luminous
sentimental sphere
time and tears entwined
will lead us near.

CLEAR AND PRESENT

As if by random design
suddenly you are mine
my heart was broken fast
that's all in the past
read between the lines.

THE CLUCKING OF HENS

Is it the past I miss
or is the pessimist
a stone's throw in the lead?
looking back
I slipped through the cracks
now I'm chicken feed.

HAVING YOUR LUNCH

The boys in Boise
will surely eat me alive
if I sink any lower
in this crazy kamikaze dive.

OVERHEAD

A starling for my darling
and a dollar for my bread
red wine and sunshine
blue skies overhead.

(for Clare)

THE THING

Going through a thing
it doesn't mean a thing
if you've never been there before
no one's keeping score
but the love you bring
really helps when you're
going through a thing.

SNEAKERS

We are the spiritual seekers
the blessed are the meekers
we're blowing all your speakers
and wearing out your sneakers.
