those who know
a thing or two

will smooth out
rough edges

strike out
what’s yours

saw off
whole limbs

with cold

just to make you
more “relevant”


5 things

must try, can’t miss
life’s short & plain
others tried these:
it worked!

collect collect collect
like save share
fit these into your plan
you have one, right?

you could do more
be so much more
something better awaits
right around the corner

passage of time

been down here so long
memories now runintoeachother
battle lines are quiet waves
visiting divers are hurtling missiles

looking to each other
we speak of fire & water
of loud silence & quiet screams
no longer knowing which is which
