How To Become That Way 2010

          How To Become That Way

Schwarzenegger, Belesconi,

Winfrey, Gates or Kennedy –

Villain, hero?

I don’t know.

Power, virtue, wealth, corruption –

All creep up.

Even virtue;

Nothing rushes.

Habits all

                    to ways of life.

Leaving Numbers Seven Five 2010

              Leaving Numbers Seven Five

I’m not supposed

To give it meaning;

Not supposed

To say what’s waiting

Round the corner,

Give or take twenty-five years.

No peer alludes to it; dear

Friends don’t mention it.

Alone in a neurosis

That the rest don’t share?

There is no sentiment there,

(though I once said that I’ll miss myself.)

The thought is hard to grasp –

It doesn’t want to feel –

Not real

For the moment.

Just Plain Ole’ God 2010

      Just Plain Ole’ God

Everything I do

I owe to you

And all the verbs

In all the world

Are you

In costume,

Plain ole’ God,

My chum.
