Deep Hole

October 25, 2018

I have fallen into a very, very deep hole

And all it took was a suggestion of a push

Now what do I do?

And why have I fallen so easily?

I Dreamed My Family

October 24, 2018

cropped-img_2435.jpg

I dreamed my family was really my family

Nights of holding in comfort

Of building more family

Days of building dreams

Of knowing, of connecting

Of being mutually indispensable

 

I’d like to argue about how to load the dishwasher 

And then laugh about it 

 

Finding value in sitting side by side getting nothing done

 

I wish we’d had a child

To be amazed by

And named her to make her real

 

The closer you come to me

The blurrier you get

Like you’re receding in the distance

Even as I can smell your yoga sweat

 

If we could just stop thinking

Be intertwined vines

Clinging to the wall

And to each other

Some Poemish Songs (or songish poems)

When I get it

I can’t make it out of my mind

I’m in such an awful bind

There’s this thing I need to find 

A hidden key of some kind

It’s eluded me before

It’s on the other side of a door

When I get it, I’ll be free

When I get it, I’ll change my destiny 


Siri, wake me up now

Siri, wake me up now

Siri, wake me up now

Siri, I want to get back to my real life. Please wake me up

Set the alarm for when?

Now

For what time?

The present time.

Siri, wake me up now.

Siri, wake me up now


 

Body Vacation

I’m going on a little vacation

I’ve got everything set up for my body to function smoothly for a couple of weeks without me.

My work schedule is set. I put money on my subway card. I got a bunch of quarters for laundry.

No surprise events – everything is pretty routine. I should be fine without me.

A lot of the people I interact with are on vacation too, so I won’t be missing anything.

I haven’t decided where I’ll go yet.

Perhaps a yoga retreat in Costa Rica.

Maybe snorkeling in Hawai’i.

Or just curl up in my bed for a long nap.

Yeah. That sounds good. I’ll sleep.

If you need me, leave a message with my body.

Bye Bye Miss White Supremacy

August 21, 2018

A long long time ago
I pretend to remember how
TV and lunch counters used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And maybe they’d look happy for a while

Celebrity (Donald Trump) Uber Alles

June 27, 2018

Thanks to the Dead (or recently retired) Kennedys

I am Emperor Donald Trump
Born again with fascist cravings
Still, you make me president
Rule of law has now gone ‘way
I am now your king today
Now I command all of you
Betsy Devos will Control your school
And Erik Prince will do security too!
Celebrity Über Alles
Über Alles Celebrity
White Nationalists will control you
‘Cause you’re afraid of other points of view
I’ll put Stephen Miller on the Court
The confirmation will be short!

I dunno. Poetry I guess.

Three Loud Firetrucks

Three loud blaring, blasting firetrucks

Tree limbs swaying

Sirens lingering

Wind dying down

All quiet now

The Universe is on the side of justice

May 2, 2018

In every age of history, people have thought the world was about to end.

But I have hope, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.
