Aiming At More Freedom 2012

Aiming At More Freedom


Each time I play

I think I’m fine and firm.

It’s fun, I feel fulfilled.

I listen back. I wasn’t free.

How to play more musically?

(Or if you want to use the word)


To sense completion –

What a blessing that would be!

Or is the trip continuous?

A  boundless one?

An endless one?

A ceaseless one?

A changing and ongoing one,

Eternal and ethereal,

A source to dig from, build on.

That State #2 2009



State #2

You’ve reach that state.

You’ve got it.

Even when and if you’re tipsy,


state doesn’t go away,

It coloring the stuff you say,


holding sway

How Does It Work 2004

  How Does It Work?

You’ve no idea

What you are doing.

No idea.

You play a chord,

(Each day a chord)

No methods, systems,

Preconceptions –


They’re there,


As mattress stuffing –



So that chaos can’t destroy you.

Resting on it

You create.

A kind of waiting on

Creation’s intimations,

And of things available

You spread your fingers.

Out it comes:


Sounding fine,

Texture, color, line

Just right for the occasion.

Employable And Still Enjoyable

Employable And Still Enjoyable

Over seventy and got a gig.

A blessing in this age-ist day

When pensioners are sloughed away

Funneled into categ-


Shoved or gently eased.

I’m pleased.
