best

we try our best
do what’s right
throughout the night
with energy left
morning in sight
let love rest

you hear

did you hear
about lou
what that he flew
and lost his blue
when he took up
with the zoo

i see

i see
he said
up ahead
as she fed
images danced
in their
heads

i see
he said
up ahead
as she fed
images danced
in their
heads

looking

at a table
they sat
looking glass
scared the cat
swing a bat
outside
car has a flat

burned

the day had
more in the mirror
than ahead
still in bed
she faced her dread
the image burned
in her head

it was

i saw it
as it was
it didn’t need me
didn’t want from me
i don’t matter
to it
it’s ok
this way

how we live

it’s what we give
and how we live
learn to forgive
that’s what
life is

colors

the colors
of others
sisters
and brothers
reflections
of mothers
and lovers

systems

power on
self-test
diagnostic check
pass the test
operating system
load to memory
compute systems
from the past

thinking

unafraid
comfortable
with self
thinking
who knows
fleeting
moment

fading

i see them
reflected in their things
fading images
frail beings
memories

numbers

red means run son
numbers add up to nothing

rolling

must not stop
at all costs
our beloved
rolling stock

uncovered

there i discovered
the uncovered
truth
ruth
about the blue
in you
too

like that

there it was
just like that
around the corner
a view to remember
a lake in november
or was it september

the ways

when i consider the land
and the ways of nature
i rather be in awe
than in fear

the beast

the tower
bearing the brunt of the beast
reflecting the heat
fleeing feet
on the street
seeking shelter
and peace

she wished

they missed her
she whispered
a kiss
like this
she wished for

no time

run
drive
faster
it’s alive
no time
to die
run
