A Love Letter
A Word
Went on a Caribbean Cruise
I was
Ode to a Naked Mannequin
The Nightmare
There's an empty space
When the tyranny
• Sitting on a limb
The words are becoming
Left California
The Search
Another Thought
A Short Story
The swirling simplicity
I'm a separate
The black hole
I've given up
The New
The Winds of Crete
A Song
A Message
A Question?
An Answer
And suddenly



Sitting on a limb

Sitting on a limb
All by my lonesome
Little — lethargic — lost.
Surely — somewhere —
There must be others who see
                                    like me?
I’ve felt it at times
In different climes
With various people
We interacted each with the other
                       In sensitive rhymes
Such a beautiful concerto of
Not a discordant solo
                       of crimes.
For me to continue to care
I need to share
To understand and to confront
With tender ferocity.
But this demands others and
Can’t do it sitting on a limb
                       all by my lonesome.
