  Sally


All around the world
you ride
In a big machine
Just this one time
The best experience of your life
but come home and sit by the fire
oh Sally Ride
Write down your thoughts
about the time you were an astronaut
Was floating like  it seems?
Is it the same as I dream?
The most expensive thing to do
When you landed you were coming home to who?
oh Sally Ride.

Yes I read about Sally Ride and it brought a tear to my eye because I wondered if that was the price.....I wonder about the price of everything.

I am not happy with the idea of leaving this planet........if God created it for us then what a insult and how shabby we are! Lets go and slowly destroy another world.

I dug that hole you stand in
My back aches and my hands are sore
But I dig holes just the same
Deep and deeper to measure a price
It's not mentally demanding
I am outside
Plant a tree or bury your uncle
It's best to come to me
When there is a hole to be dug
Ya dig?

The streets ahead


The street ruined
Littered with the corpses of my failures
I fear streets that cross each other
That keep me in this city
I say I need to unload
I need a road
A place to be, it is not for me
A place to go is at the end of the road
But I abound upon a circular
on an impossible orbital
Had I always been so portable?

About hands

My right hand moves out to the right
My left hand moves out to the left
But pressed up against each other they are an equal
Together they may pray
Apart they may question
Palms down to work
Palms up to dance
Turning they become articulate
And suggestive
Concealing yet progressive
Clenched an ugly definition
Though to some a tight fist makes sense
But a relaxed palm inward and ready to be pressed into  palm  of another is a blessing.

Art knows not its crime

Oh hell - there they go
Got caught and found
Chased to the end of the day
By a uniform man in a big boys go-kart
But my boy was meant to be a visionary
He paints the sky when he reaches into the window
From there his goodness comes
Oh tell- the Judge
Not to add a naught to the sentence
Faced with the longest night
Locked behind a door that wears no heart
But my son was not meant to follow me
He slants his R's and knows the names of all of the stars
It's there where his goodness is.
Becoming human.

All about the rockets


So what is the answer
To the many questions
Seems to me that the conclusion is not out in deep space
There are all kinds of tangents
And math
But I am happiest relaxed in a bath
Just keep me wet and warm
Relax me me in your arms
So did you you find what you were looking for?
I am searched over and over again
It's of no consequence that planets collide
When you are deep inside
You are concerned about performance
Though its not mental for me
The sun is where it is for that very reason
And I am not half as speechless as I used to be.
Give me rockets and thrust
Now we are on the cusp.

Oh little Flower...(A  child to obtain heaven)

What is today if not just another day
Yet today is as it should be
No more and no less
A day to live
A day to love
A new day to many and an eventual old day all
A modern day
One to enrich
Yet there may never be a day like this
Though you may rise and and make it so,
You may hold a rose today.

For Robert.

Rob is a friend who has been very good to me. We met because we are Bowie fans. He had always encouraged me to write. I have known him for 10 yrs. He is a christian and I am not. We get along because we accept each others stance. He has a good knowledge about Catholicism. He studies it.

I went to see Mike Garson about a year ago in Detroit......I bought him a cd and had Mike sign it for him and his wife......I also found a book about St. Theresa. At a recent Peter Gabriel show here at The Palace Auburn Hills......we, my wife and I and Rob and his wife Bevy met and enjoyed Peters reproduction of his album "So" . Fabulous all the old band including Levin & Sancious.

He deserved my compliment and the poem was my medium.

I know little about you ?

poem for this time of year.

Boo!


blood red bread


I must live in the shadow of this world
in puddles made by the stuff that comes from me
that never finds a way to the drains.
How can hell hurt me more than life has.
How free was I and how free are you?
I must not be considered worthy of much
I am tormented and under a shoe.
I am silent for fear of being overheard.
My face pressed into the dusts.
My tongue pulled until swollen.
All parts of me shown to the world.
I was pretty.
I might have been at your side anyway!
I am capable of sensing your need.
I would gladly bleed.
Upon me feed.
I fear the sun for it has been that long; since.
Though I am trained not to wince
but to stare as if my stare were a kiss
We are both in agony and both in bliss
I sleep on the cemment floor and endure the cold
I shall remain until we grow old together
I need you to know how to keep me here
What keeps me here is my fondness of the tortuous
twists, bruises and broken bones,
and knives and pins,
and that none of this is punishment yet for my sins
I must be delivered so





Becoming human.

Professorially yours



My scientific aims,are at pains with your claims
that I am dull
Perhaps the truth comes with unpleasant stories a little too often
but I am not fragile, no need of guile.
I can not live in denial
Magnificence is all around me and my duty is to understand it and protect it
I take and try to give
I live and let live
I abide by my sense of what is good and true
I honor and care for those I love
What is left is to stay on with the work we must do for the well being of all life on earth
 
Becoming human.

  Prometheous



running through my veins
curing pains
the very last high
though i wonder why
we should need to have been pointed into this direction
sun flare away our shadows
cold moon throws us back
from the deep seas
down upon our knees
we adorn flesh which bleeds
to find shelter amongst snails
but so stolen
and made silent
we wait
we wait.

i walk



 i walk upon the dust of years past
 i have experience enough to know not to go there again
 i am tired of dieing
 if i could have your face
 and take a day
 and bury myself in the love you feel
 i would do so because i am aware i am lieing
 and they laugh at me to my face these days
 because i am old and sighing
 so just one more drop of milk to cool my tea
 and so an extra layer to repel the breeze
 i walk along the front at Brighton
 i might have been a mod
 i could have been a rocker
 i fought for my freedom
 only to win a sense of self expression
 today if i had my youth over
 i question
 who would want my suggestion
 i got free time and I got a pension
 though i would trade it
 for time lost and all that edgy tension
 i walk upon the trust of the years to come
 
Becoming human.

I should have known better than to be a boy like me


everyone knows that there are tracks under the snow
otherwise how would anyone get anywhere?
everyone goes the way they should
not everybody heads for the same town
its not  ideal or  fun
just remember not everyone wants to put a smile on your face;
few eat breakfast anyway
all kinds of cars and they are all driven the same way
its just some race to get where we are all going and at that point there is always a return
though it would be nice if you were able to drink as much as I do
and dance until we fall to our knees
that`s all I ever needed
I never signed a contract all I did was come to terms with the facts
but before I die
I agnize that there had never been a better time to react
or sweep away the snow

   M.V.P.




His bat and cherub like smile
at the plate.
Pitchers arm raised respectfully and flung; the pitch, a little wide.
An imagined expression obliterated as if wiped from an imagined existence.
Poor ball!
The big fella runs the bases.
The opposing team manager turns a cheek; and so looking weak.
Cabrera! Cabrera! Miggy is cheered by the heart of the crowd.
Ball is gone! Traveling with our hope of seeing another and another.
Great men are not enough.
Wondrous play done now to be superseded
Cabrera! Cabrera is needed.
His triumph is in his stride yet unassuming even comedic
in celebration.
But the ball by now in the market where money burns.
Cabrera! Cabrera! M.V.P. 
Becoming human.

the next day



its been a happy day
the kids are fed though tired
and we prayed before we ate
but the news coming over the airwaves
stories about how they are trying to kill our domestic bliss
all stories i hope to hear have gone by the morning
taking the kids to school just the same
its sunny
and funny
how quickly it can rain
things even out the next day
don`t they?
Becoming human.
