JUST CHANGE IT!

WHAT!?

THE LOCKS.

THAT’S SERIOUS!

YES. DRASTIC–

NO ADMITTANCE.

READ MY LIPS.

YOU’RE TOUGH!

I’M SICK OF TROUBLES.

LOCKS…?

LOCKS. MOATS! POLICE!

STUNNING.

YES, ISN’T IT.

GET MOVING, EH!

LIKE YESTERDAY–

DUDE, I’M IN GEAR–

STAY THAT WAY, BIG SHOT!

LEAVES

LEMON YELLOW LEAVES

DROOPING IN COLD AIR

SPRING IN MARKTREE

OR NEWTON OR DEDHAM–

HOME FOR SO LONG–

NOW ON A SHORT LEASH

OF TIME PRESENT—

TEARS,

YES, THE RAW FLUSH

OF HOT EMOTION

BUT SOMETHING OUT WEST

DOWN SOUTH–

CALLS THE SOUL’S QUIET

DEMANDING ANOTHER CYCLE–

FLEXIBILITY IS ALL…

JUST LET GO…

REALLY, NO BIG THING, REALLY

LET ME SAY!

I KNOW NOTHING

EVEN MY PEN

GETS IN THE WAY

OF SEEING TRUTH

BEWARE FOUL SCRIBES

SHARPENED STICKS

SCRATCHING PUZZLES

ON SURFACES–

–SMOOTH & ROUGH

–HERE & GONE!

PUT YOUR FAITH

IN EARTH & SKY

AND FLYING BIRDS

DARTING IN MASSES

NEAR THE SUN & MOON!

END OF THE ROAD?

NEVER QUITE MADE MY BIRTHDAY

AND SO IT GOES…

INFERNAL MACHINES

SPEWING DEADLY INVISIBLES,

COLLAPSE OF THE BIG CAHUNA BOSSES

POUNDING PISTONS–

WHILE IN MOTHER NATURE’S WETLANDS

GASPING MUSKRATS YET PADDLE BEAVER-LIKE

BETWEEN SWAMP CABBAGE AND CATTAILS,

WITH RED-WINGED BLACKBIRDS

CLIPPED TO TOUGH HOLLOW REEDS

SINGING THEIR FLUTED MELODIES:

PENNY WHISTLE MATING–

AND IN A FINE RAIN

THROUGH A MOSAIC OF LEMON-YELLOW

BLOSSOMING MAPLES:

THE ADIOS OF OUR 21ST CENTURY LIVES

FILL UP WITH THE LAUGHTER

OF CHILDREN DANCING INTO

A FINAL RESURGENT SPRING…

NOTHING YET FINALLY EVERYTHING, AMIGOS.

THE CURTAIN FALLS OVER APRIL…ADIEU SPRING!

MY COSMIC HEROES & HEROINES…

SEE YOU GENTLY ON THE FAR HORIZONS.

SILENCE & PEACE & OUT.

POTSDAM…

FOG AND SIRENS

MY GUIDE BOOK LOST

EYES STRANGULATED BY VODKA

OF UNCERTAIN PEDIGREE…

I CREEP TO THE RAILING

OVER THE TRAIN TRACKS

AND CLEAR MY MIND

WITH A WHIFF OF OZONE

SPARKS CHATTERING GOSSIP

OF GOOD AND BAD

AND SAD COMPROMISE

WHILE SOMEWHERE

BEYOND PALE BUILDINGS

AND UNFAMILIAR STREETS

NASTY PEOPLE PREPARED

TO DO THE UNSPEAKABLE.

AS HE GREW FRAIL

SHE SEEMED TO BLOOM

NOT IN SPITE OF HIM

BUT IN FULFILLEMENT

OF A UNIQUE JOURNEY

ONE OF THE HEART & SOUL

WHICH IN ITS BLOOMING

LATER THAN MID LIFE

GAVE PROOF TO HER THEME

THAT PATIENCE AND KINDNESS

WAS THE BASIS OF WISDOM–

AND THE FOUNT OF JOY–

MEANWHILE HER MATE

IN HIS EXHAUSTION

STOOD ABOUT AND STARED

AS IF THERE WERE NOTHING

LEFT TO BE SEEN…TRULY SAD.
