Good Things Always Come In Numbers

Oh, my God
there’s something
behind that!

And so
the world became

3
dimensional.

A Or B, But Not Either

I went back to school
just to get smarter
took a course 101 Discrete Logic.

Right up front, in Chapter 2
I discovered that no one makes sense
and everyone doesn’t not matter.

Analog, Anytime

Welcome to
the digital world
inept and so unable to ape
the too-smooth edge where figure meets ground
it’s a soft meld where heart beats soul
these things aren’t yet
pixel-ready

Goddess By Any Other

I’ve imagined her name’s Elizabeth
but I’ve settled on mainly Sarah
for the time being.

Haiku For In Echelon

The red hawk appears
whenever I grasp meaning,
together minds soar.

Redemptive

The question they posed
was given one cloth
would you wipe from
clean to dirt?

I’ve heard field recordings of sung-gospel
under winter stars; unable to shake
the marvel of that sound, I’m alive again
in frosted air, I revel in icy tears.

Pitter Patois

When you realize you’re style
the rest comes easy.

Then it’s just you
being you.

How not to upset
the apricot.

Or burn one bridge
before she’s been crossed.

I smile, blow kisses from twilight
whenever there’s love.

60 Wonderful Hours

I miss you Friday, thank god that you come around just one in seven.

To have the weekend ahead is simply too much for me to bear:
a deliciously wonderful concept – whole weekends ahead.

I am joyous over the freshness, new and unused time,
a breathtaking canvas to color with handfuls of being;
I am the elf of Saturday Eve.

Fallen

I feel so inept;
I do not know what we call
this time before stars.

Twilight?
This place without time –
rimmed cold blue in ice,
trillions of bright sparkles
for each shiny object.

Light still holds to treetops;
the axis of the world is true,
once more affirms the autumn of promise.
