À La Mcluhan: Cinqku

À LA McLUHAN

Writing
In white ink
On white paper
Made what she had to say
Quite clear

Happy Families

HAPPY FAMILIES

The silence spoke volumes
Passive aggression
She didn’t know the term
But then she had no need

She had no real desire
To continue living
And so was quite grateful
For his contribution

He had no real desire
To continue living
And so was quite grateful
For her contribution

Passive aggression
The silence spoke volumes
He didn’t know the term
But then he had no need

Last Call: Shadorma

LAST CALL

Fingers crossed
Shoulders to the wheel
Work together
This whole world
Reversing destination
To save the planet

Ongoing Creation

ONGOING CREATION

Inhabit your life until it creaks, cracks open
Loudly ringing for a change – for transition

Hopefully, dutifully – inspirationally calling
Out to each and every reader passing by

In time words appear … “Beautiful poem.”
You reply: “Thanks for your kind words.”

Across The Ocean: Tanka

ACROSS THE OCEAN

“Am I coherent?”
You asked … I made a meaning
Out of what you said
Hopefully it is the one
You had in mind … But who knows?

A Comment On Comments

A COMMENT ON COMMENTS

This writer is forever very grateful
To all those who spend their time
In suspending their precious time

To those who not only visit, read
But reflect, chew a while and share
Their own thoughts and feelings

For thus we may build community
In flagrant defiance of those others
Who fearfully wish but to destroy it

Stage Four

STAGE FOUR

I love you
You’re forgetful now
With chemo
And all that
So I wrote it on paper
Hope you understand

The page has not – not – loaded completely
Something went wrong – went wrong – went wrong

Wiring went wrong – Went AWOL – Went haywire – Rewire

Digital – Digitail – Digitool – Digitall – Digitalis

Intent – Intention – Unintention – Unintended

I Robot – I Roboot – I Reboot – I Reboot – I Reboot

Recovering no now nor now nor neither truth
Nor whatever else once or twice passed for truth

Back then, back there, back in the day
Back it up – Backpack it – Pack it in

Back then back when we postured as one
As one posing as posing as posed as one

As apposite – Or as in opposition
Or as apposite as possible

Or as I – As I – Let’s admit it
As I – uninvited – scammed

The Art Of Erasure

THE ART OF ERASURE

Tried to make statements
The more we perfected it
The more we said less

In Touch

IN TOUCH

Where are you?
And what’s
Happening with you?

I see your on-line site has gone now too.
While – lost but not forgotten – I remain
And would appreciate contact.

Communication after all
Is even at its best
A two way street.

While without any
Bearable life disappears.
