& red / let me curse the dandy lions &
crab grass

its a bout drink ing cold coffee on
the back porch / st.ill wear ing a
winter jacket / how the thermometre
only reads 14 degrees celsius

& how that word / never looks right

it's glory to the eyes /

no body likes the rain / except the ground
& all things / which burst up from it /

i eat oregano leaves / wish for health



for get

house of lost objects / house of
lost children / house of a woman

who knows not / what to do
except / count count / now i'm count ing

& slow lee / sun creeps out / wind comes
up / & the engine of the golf course lawn
mower fills / the air / as it cuts up & a long
the length of the green

in complete /

it's this time of day / i hide
on the top deck / listen to all
hell break loose in this house / the
drums are going / children yell / &
i try to build up enough courage to
drag my

eyes a way from the sky & sun on the mountain
tops / a cross the lake /

i can only see up / you see

it's points of light / i see /

the desire to be come /
fear & loath ing /
the desire to run /

perhaps i'll steal a car &
go south

[i]i'll never make it / [/i]

the desire
certain lee
is strong
in side me / /

some thing i'm / just not getting

& damn
my heart pounds
moisture gathers /
what am i try ing to live up to

no / i'm no poet /

i'm simply in therapy right now
void of any original thot / /

only full / of feel ing
heart's too deep /

it believes mountains breathe
it senses water / spring streams / rivlets /
constant lee run / down down / yes / all
the worlds water runs down these mountains

all a round me / all the time / /
