The Passage Of Time   6 comments

All time is created equal,
but we don’t use it equally.
Some are livin’ on Tulsa time,
while others in a New York minute.

My time is your time,
but it is not mine to give.
You can’t give away
something that isn’t yours.

…unless you share the moment.

“some moments are nice,
some are 
nicer,
some are even worth

writing about.” 

― Charles Bukowski, War All the Time

When death comes
The ribs are exposed
Standing tall.

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome,
dangerous, leading to most amazing view.
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

Various Outposts

You traded places
with the mystery — fire-torn, insulated leaves,
the steady eyes of the huckleberry —   (Haven’t you

been sad most of your life? Come on, 
all those outposts in the middle . . . they say the end
of growth is that you’ll suffer “purely” . . .)

One night, remember? No envy or hope.
What you sought
was here, what was done

could not be undone by you: there was the owl,
the night’s vice president,
the tangled sheets of moon —

the West
invented itself,

then
reinvented itself — 

first by cowboys,
then
by landowners,

which changed its
tone and image,

so much so
 now only the
makings of myths,

not history.

Anticipating
Waterspouts towering up
Excitement abounds.

Why! 

Trying to understand why
Only to be shattered
By the emotions of others.

Still, I will stubbornly
Continue seeking answers
By connecting dots —

Dots that blow in the wind
Like the tumbleweeds
No longer grounded

Fueling fires of fear
Widening the desert
Of intellectual ignorance.
