Good To See You, Bud

GOOD TO SEE YOU, BUD

One thing leads to another
Links in an ongoing chain
A necklace to adorn our Mother
Here comes Summer again and again

To Whom It May Concern

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

We breathe in
We breathe out
Not always
Regardless

Adversity

ADVERSITY

I hit the road
It hit me back
We paused a mo
Now here we go

Wayfaring

Give much
Speak little
Observe much

But to defend them or argue them to others
Is both quite pointless and often dangerous

WEDDED TO VERSE

For better or for worse
A poet likes to lift
A stone to see what is
Going on under there

Ben Her

BEN HER

We are always together
We are always alone
We are always ourselves
Alone together alone

Current Address

CURRENT ADDRESS

We breathe in
We breathe out
We breathe
Until we don’t

Playing The Fool

PLAYING THE FOOL

Attraction
Then attachment
Even knowing better now
I remember it well
