JUST MOVE THE STONE…

ROLL IT OR PUSH IT

USE A LEVER

OR GREASE THE GROUND

ANY MEANS WILL DO &

JUSTIFIES THE ENDS–

MOVEMENT IS ALL–

STATIC SOLUTIONS?

FORGET IT, BRAVE SOUL–

WE’VE EMBRACED GRAVITAS HERE:

BOULDER-SIZED PRESUMPTION.

LOOK AT IT–

THE SMUGNESS OF INERTIA,

THE ESSENCE OF LETHARGY

THE SUMMIT OF SLOTH–

GET DOWN NOW:

HERE’S ARCHIMEDES’ OLD LEVER…

SO GIVE A HEARTY HEAVE HO, FIERCE PILGRIMS!

JUST TILT THE WORLD!

FIRST FROST LAST NIGHT

AND ICE LAYERED THE WORLD

OF TREES AND PLANTS & CARS.

MY HAND AT MIDNIGHT

SLIPPING OFF THE DELICATE COAT

ON THE WINDSHIELD

SLIPPING AS IF SKATING

ON THE WINTER POND.

THE FUTURE IN AN INSTANT

COMING AS ATTRACTIONS–

EVEN TELLING ME–

HOLD ON–

FEEL THE SPRING THERE–

ALMOST DONE NOW.

A LAST FROST

AND SPRING’S RETURN

LOOKING UP AT STARS

I DREAM TIMELESS,

CENTERED AT THE NORTH STAR.

DREAMING TIMELESS

THAT LEAF THERE…

SKITTERING ALONG THE WALK

ITS PHOTOSYNTHESIS DONE

ON SABBATICAL NOW

FREED FROM ONE MAPLE

A BLUSH OF CRIMSON

WHERE IS IT BOUND?

THE GREAT DAYS AHEAD

RETIREMENT ALONG THE ROAD

SWEPT INTO THE WOODS

OR BAGGED FOR THE DUMP

THE JOURNEY UNKNOWN

BOUNCING ON WIND

THAT ONCE ANCHORED A TREE

FLUTTERING THROUGH SUMMER

NOW FREE AT LAST

TITTERING WITH JOY

A JOB WELL DONE.

SHAMANS FAREWELL PARTY

HARD TO SEE

INTO THE FOGGY WALL

OF HISTORY’S CHANCES

MOSTLY UNKNOWN EVEN THEN

ITS “NOW’S” WHIRLING BY

ACTION–REACTION

IN UN-BUCKLED FURY

OR LATENT ABYSSES

NO HAND THAT TREMORS

AS ACT FOLLOWS ACT

LIKE MEANING

HAD A NAME INSHRINED

AND JUSTICE BORE WITNESS–

TO ME THIS PRESENT BLURS

AROUND THE EDGES–

FUTURE & PAST–

AND I SKID OFF THE WAVE

AIMING AT A BEACH

LOST IN CHAOTIC HAZE & FOAM.

STORMING THE BEACH YET AGAIN!

UNDER WHAT SKIES…

DO WE MEASURE OUR LOVES?

WHY DO WE IMAGINE A LIMIT?

IS THERE SOMETHING THERE,

HEAVIER THAN SPIRIT OR AIR?

IN MY HAND THE DESIGN LIES

OPENING CLOSING ABOUT THE HEART

JUSTICE IN THE CLENCH,

CERTAINTY IN THE CRIME.

ON HILLSIDES THE VIEW OF VICTIMS

DULLY ENGAGED LIKE WORK ANIMALS

AWAKENING WITH THE DAWN

AND NOW THE SWORD SHIMMERS

POINTING TO THE CRIMINALS

THEIR LABOR IS NOW OURS

BY JUSTICE, BY MIGHT,

WE RIDE, WE IGNORE…

WE ARE LOST IN OUR OWN CRUELTY.

DAMAGED MEMORIES

TO YOU, MY LOVE,

LOST IN THAT CITY

SIRENS ENWRAPPING MY EXIT

AND RETURN ALSO RUMOR FILLED

WITH APHORISM & PLATITUDE

THE SPARK, NAY EMBER,

OF OUR FLASHFIRE YEAR

UNDER FOREIGN PALMS

AND BROKEN STREETS

WHERE BRUSQUENESS WAS KING

OLS NEWS, NEW SCREAMS

ALL WAS ROUGH-EDGED

AN YOUR BROWN FINGERS

CLASPED THE IRON GATE

OF YOUR SHADOWY JARDIN

WHILE YELLOW GREEN BUSES

LEFT US IN A CLOUD OF DARKNESS.

YOUR SHADOWY JARDIN

Who knows what's what?

There’s a kind of confusion

That springs out of the past

Tossing our memories

Here and there

In a collision of who and how,

Know all too well this is the big surprise

Even if you can’t remember

There are many folk who teach

THE MAGIC OF GOODNESS & JOY

Is it the thing we really grasp

Or does it evaporate with the annual round

Of good and better and hopeful wishes

For lasting yet another year of all things well?

The child in us springs forth

And knocking our knees

And trusting all others swirling

The magical dance of renewed birth

And a chance again to dream…

Yes, all this is a warmth we embrace

Our futures are unknown

But we measure the close embrace

Of all the other survivors,

Clinging to the butter and all the sweet stuff…

Goodness, a fire and an embrace

For the long journey ahead…endless…?

One point is all points…fear not children

Of the wild cosmic winds of INFINITY!

FIRST VISIT TO MARYLAND CRAB SHACK…
TIME TO LOWER THE HAMMER ON DINNER.
