Song For Mom

A Song for Mom Tired of the pain, tired of the loss and the suffering, I don’t know if I can bare to smile again knowing I’ll never see you or talk to you again. I know I never was much, not nearly what you claimed of me, always treated you like you were someone…

What Put the Lines On the Old Man’s Face

WHAT PUT THE LINES IN THE OLD MAN’S FACE? In the punishing peace Ghost heroes’ Practiced chants Bloom and shrivel Children divided with words and encumbering devices Their lives framed From cradle to cloak Men from the grave Claiming children With drunken stories Teaching them To chide things They never learn to see Like blind…

Autum Song addendum

one song lifelong come and gone, seasons arranged and blown along, mind on the matter loosely gripping what the eyes have seen. one step tripped back and softly dreaming, the window is closing, time is winning, the door for the day shrieks like pain.

Rodent Killer For President: 2016

With a hot dog walk and a bicycle horn nose that kinda just squeaks, but still it blows, not content with the ham on his sandwich he cinches up his bows.┬áHe’s got slingshots and knives, rifles and mines, and if it breathes he steals their spirit by harvesting their bones. In a soul’s last leap…

Sister’s Little Helper

  Johnny Cash stepped to the front of the stage and looked out into the smoke and haze, wiped a tear from his eye and said, “this first song goes out to a man in the back. Folks don’t know his name, but they told me last night that his Mother died. They say he’s…

Sanctuary

I’ve been wasting time waiting on better days. Thought I’d take the time to paint the clouds before they’d blown away. But when I looked outside today I couldn’t place my heart where I stood. That’s when I found out I’d been wasting time and time was running out. Sanctuary, been wasting time on thoughts…

Nettles and Dust

Nettles and Dust bless my lips and lift my soul away this one’s done, this one’s done kiss my breast, let your lips awaken this one’s done, this one’s done We swallow mountains in the blink of an eye and rivers drown us in the moons of time harvested seasons gathering must my heart blows…

Lock Up the Farm II

Lock up the Farm (redone) Money for charms, money for lust, money for hope, love aint enough, you took your blessing and threw it out the door. One takes a hand and returns it with nothing, power is taking from those who were something, Took it for freedom, an illusion bought and dropped to the…
