Books

I cannot stay away

From all those books

They are everywhere

And I am lost when

I see them

In all shapes and forms

Here and everywhere

New worlds, new ideas

Or old world and old ideas

Never mind

Reading and learning

Has been my life

The Voices In The Head

Listening to the cliches in my head

If I believed in them I would be dead

When you are young

They are installed

By hammer and nail

In your head

They tell how to be

And that you are not free

They say it is

All in the family

Just the mosquitoes stay free

But the older you get

The more wrong

It gets to be

And you realize

That you never will get free

From the voices in the head

Until you are dead

Easter Resurrection

The slow disaster called Easter continues

Pleasant and sunny

Peaceful and violent at the same time

Dysfunctional and productive

Reductive and Creative

Slowly learning

How to deal with this

Specific adversity
