Divorce (15b)

DIVORCE

Eggs don’t bounce
No doubt about it
Broken shell
Yolk and white
Slowly evaporating
Seems that’s all we left

Prey (12a)

PREY

So fragile
Our loved ones, ourselves
So busy
We forget
Till with a jolt we awake
In the eagle’s grasp

Strategic Withdrawal (9b)

STRATEGIC WITHDRAWAL

I’m sorry
That it’s been a while
Since I wrote
Or phoned you
With one thing and another
You know how it is

Growth (4a)

GROWTH

In our youth
We would give ourselves
Foolishly
We admit
Only partially awake
Yet there’s more to it

For later
As we grew wiser
We became
Discerning
Let us be loved yet also
Explore our own core

The Easy Way Out: Four By Six

THE EASY WAY OUT

Self-sufficiency’s all
Well and good but when one
Includes masturbation
Now that’s a bit extreme

Ships Passing

SHIPS PASSING

I dreamt I could tell
My tale and be understood
But then I awoke

Keeping In Touch

KEEPING IN TOUCH

“HI! Love you. Kiss kiss.
Must dash.” And scrolls down to the
Next ten second bite.

Old Lovers: Four By Six

OLD LOVERS

That curious rhythm
Stitched us to its branchings
Caught up in its weaving
Gladly surrendering

The Hard Way

THE HARD WAY

Tried loving others
But before you knew yourself
No more than a sham

Goin’ Home

GOIN’ HOME

You have your keyboard with you
plus I see you brought your keys along too.
As for me: I have as you see brought my horn along.

No bass required to intervene, as agreed. Too basing.
No superfluous traps either. A binding promise.
Let’s go play the blues then. Melt into one another’s I’s

Country sounds good (when using ears rather than eyes)
while delta seems inviting also. Finger style?
I’m more than willing if that’s your choice.

Twelve bar, sixteen bar, thirty-two bar if you like.
Muddy water. Let’s dive in and search for a pearl.
Fare thee well. Forever. See you on that other shore.
