Darkness surrounds
me the lid is closed
and I’m dying I

waking sighing
I’m not dead but
my dream is

why dream of death

perhaps it’s not an
end but a beginning
a new beginning like
movie two double feature

maybe death is a renewal
of divinity
a mulligan

this life
might be fun if
remembered with
previous lives
there’s humor there
lives finding kindred
souls long lost friends

our world forces
us to forget our
pasts like
telling the joke
keeping the
punch line

Random (romeo stories)

Ones I want
don’t want me
said Romeo
sitting across from
me I nodded classic
city pigeon not hearing
definitely not listening
You’re pretty darn
I started to check-out
your blog got side-tracked
like a dog and cat I
reacted a teen-aged

These new poems
are really good
I’m impressed
says Romeo

Thank you

the salutations hang
like molasses
empty nouns
gathering into
pools of verbless
