ORNATE FRAME

A too ornate

gilded frame

detracts from the

painting flame

BLUE
Blue:
the color of detachment
the color of peace
of the sky which
holds onto nothing
and of
of desireless seas

NEEDY

Because you’re a needy guy

you make me want

away to fly

ORPHANGE HOARDERS

Those who call
humans ‘hoarders’ for rescuing
animals rather than
‘euthanizing’ them
would for the most part
not call those who run
orphanages for chidlren ‘hoarders’.

The phalanx of socalled
antihoarders includes those
who never recycle, never
store food supplies for others
in times of need as well
as those who violate
elders by throwing away or selling or stealing
their most prized possessions before warehousing them into nursing homes.

AWARENESS

That driver

behind or in
front or us..
to the right or left

might be
on drugs,
or mentally impaired,
or mad

or braking for animals,
physically impaired,
or an unlicensed teen
or sad

or have fallen asleep
or have no brakes
or be texting or of
booze did partake

*

Footnote: Many antipsychotic drugs must carry
the label that they can cause homicide or suicide.

RAIN THE POTTER:     version 2

Tendrils of fog
form into figs.
Mysteriously,
mist figments
are minted
into spearmint.

Footnote: Spearmint

and all plants have the

right to keep their leaves

to themselves

FALLEN STARS

When from the heavens
angels fell
did their starry crowns
fall as well
