the cruelness fades,
it leaves a road of waste.
the part of you that is now alone
without cruelness anymore
has become entreated,
to trace the source.
but you are now more alone than ever,
and that's the lesson to be learned.

i made a japanese kite;
out of soft paper, painted colors, string, sticks and care,
i flew it during the hurricane
and watched it tear.

A Moment's Time

i wind my way through this
as if taken by a storm,
i carry what i make with me,
that is why i was born,
my wake is like a black dove
and my imagination is like a blinding light
pray for me you others
so that things will be alright.

sometimes its all you can do but plead with the gods
and know it goes unanswered, in a forgotten space
crazy magic hour
our love goes on dying.

i want a house where the kitchen has
windows that open up to the East,
and a skylight
and on the granite countertops rest
lemon trees, resplendent with hanging yellow citrus
ripe and smelly.

i get drunk off them
i get paralyzed
half stupor
i get lost in 'em
and broken and born
like a movie in a room on repeat
i get taken far and away
in them
and haven't had a moments rest
with them,
without them i'd have no feeling
and no way of seeing all the meaning
i get destroyed by their beauty
and sometimes i am utterly serene
with them

these thoughts.
