POEM: to the sky!

to the sky!

well good
pure dreams

always ready
for a shreddy

on that bombshell
of poetic excitement

see you in the next one
to the sky!

POEM: for Kodo Sawaki

for Kodo Sawaki

we never met
we couldn’t have
we’d have disagreed about the war
but agreed about most other things
to be fair, even with a time machine
my Japanese these days
is at an elementary school level
you would have to dumb things down
but I’d enjoy having tea
just sitting there
maybe with a ballgame on
not giving in to group stupidity
until our team scores

POEM: orbits

orbits

each one drifts apart
falls into a new orbit

basement investigations
over veggie sushi & tea

milestones celebrated
lasting & otherwise

fires lit in circles
burning across the page

elliptical but intersecting
on late-night bridges

off on a lark
in front of the crowd

looking through telescopes
wondering what we are

cloud-obscured stars
outside the bar

POEM: the moment I knew for sure I liked David Rovics

the moment I knew for sure I liked David Rovics

I remember he finished singing the line
“Coke is the drink of the death squads”
picked up a Coke, looked at the audience
said, “Hey, it’s a complicated world”
