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



A Word

A word
          is a set of syllables
                     that make a sound
Then sits in space
          Waiting around
                    for an action to
                               put it in motion.

Whether it’s said
          Whether it’s read
                    It still remains
                              An idle notion
‘til more than one person
          senses it the same
                     knows its true name
and we don’t have to play the game
          called “Communication”
