wisdom

fire burning to coals
poet looking past embers
seeing distant world
before existence of light
coming of god

untitled

poet on edge
meds not refilled
lost in black silence
static white noise
echoing around skull
deafening suffering soul
seriously considering
ways to kill himself

answer me

telephone without voice
no caller id
broken-hearted poet
wondering if ex-lover
quietly bagging

shrink

routine family counseling
necessary before divorce
doctor’s dark office
framed degrees on the wall
wet blue seascapes
rural pastoral scenes
soft mood music
from hidden speakers
playing word games
keeping self alive
waiting for freedom to be
