walking the tight rope of hope and despair

I hang by my nails
from this cliff of mystery
the unknown answer
a matter of life and death and
hope is nothing but a sad
sad song but
I can’t stop singing for you
I remember words like
“stay gold pony boy, stay gold”
but then I cringe
when I think of the character
who spoke those words and
I cry when I remember his outcome
it’s way too soon
you’re so damn young
full of life and passion

Deterrent for Inequality – Pitchforks

Thanks to Glen Still for posting this.

Imagine the look on my face when I came across this article.  My recent post charged thinkers and leaders to step forward in attempt to change our societal inequality. 

Well, here’s one already. Now, do I think that my post had anything to do with the creation of this write-up? Not even in the slightest,  but my words are part of this conversation.

it hasn’t been
provocative thought but
I’ve pondered some
about my criminal record

a DUI as a kid
another menial charge
as an adult
I specifically think about
the consequences

how the judge showed no mercy
my useless public defender
who only claimed to represent me and
I was held to every letter of the law

it didn’t help
that it was election year
judges trying to get reelected
I was another number…

Wet Soggy Leaves

when I consider
all the time that has passed
I can’t help but think of
how little time is left and
I couldn’t tell you just
as you can’t tell me
how much time anyone has before death
but one thing is certain and that is
that it’s coming for everyone
meanwhile we give our time
most gets spent on our employers
another chunk on laundry
grocery shopping and clarinet lessons
family reunions or ball…

I thought of you
today and another day last week
a few times in between
remembered your hair as I stood
basking in the rare yellow
Portland sun
I cried a little too and drank
a little more than I probably should
I thanked the universe though

when a woman walks away
there’s always another to come and
my destiny isn’t bound
by love or an engagement with a…

restrooms for customers only
sleep number mattress
three thousand dollars
anything helps god bless
reads the homeless man’s sign
as I walk along sipping my Starbucks coffee
almost ashamed that I have it
hey buddy you got a cigarette
comes a voice from out of nowhere
his fingernails kept
but black around the edges
like eyeliner on a titty dancers
I give it to him and keep walking
hey thanks man I’m…
