A dirt road loves a field
next to it just the way it is— 

I have driven by only once;
I stayed the rest of my life.

  Thunder, Then

Rumbling, rain will come.
In its own way, rain tries 
to heal, to salve wounds,
to cradle earth's sodden sadness.

Impressing the ladies

This Summer I'll learn to free-dive
drop deep into the blue
impress the ladies with my courage,
as I drown.

Maybe a Sweat Lodge for Real Prayers

I keep it around
like a fermenting corpse
too attached to say goodbye
too ashamed to cut it loose.

A hotel in Turkey we haven't stayed in yet.

Casa Margot, Fethiye beckons 
and we've only just come back
time's running out, a new sofa
or a new heaven?

The new hip settles in nicely
Waiting to become mobile
While i agonize over the suffering
Of the flesh
