Dissents are appeals to the brooding spirit of the law, to the intelligence of another day.

At The End Of Another Day

The clouds were in line,
like stepping-stones from the horizon,
painted pink and grey
from the setting sun
at the end of another day.

I Walk Out Into the Darkness Of Another Day

I WALK OUT INTO THE DARKNESS OF ANOTHER DAY

I walk out into the darkness of another day-
Even the light cannot save me-

Too much sinking -
Too much already done
Which cannot be undone.

My life has passed me by.

Writing this
Trying to make a poem-
Will it get me out of it again?

I

There Are Holes In The Sky

There are holes in the sky
Where the rain gets in
But there ever so small
That's why the rain is thin.

If The Mahogany Leaves Are Hearts Then The Rivers Flood

If all the mahogany leaves
In Tabon mountain
Are hearts
Like the way I bleed
When you left
The rivers below
Will surely flood.

These Are Not Yet the Days of Summer

Warm.
Sticky.
And thick...
With humidity!
And you?
Do you have a cool box,
To go into?
How are you enjoying your heat?
And these are not yet,
The days of Summer!

We are interested in the people

Gossip is not all false.
It contains some truth.
To gossip and to hear gossip,
Each one of us is interested,
A sign that we are interested
In the people around us.

We Are Drawn Towards The West

we are drawn towards the west
we are from the east

we have many reasons to stay in the west
we have more of the many reasons to go back to our
point of origin

the east, yet for the time being, we cannot.
the east will always be an enticing art form
inside our hungry stomachs

And These--Are These Indeed The Rnd

And these-are these indeed the end,
This grinning skull, this heavy loam?
Do all green ways whereby we wend
Lead but to yon ignoble home?

Ah well! Thine eyes invite to bliss;
Thy lips are hives of summer still.
I ask not other worlds while this
Proffers me all the sweets I will.

When You Are Running Through The Streets

When you are running through the streets
There is no hope for you
You have got to pick yourself up
Isn't there something better for you to do
There is nothing but trouble
If you continue to stay within the vicinity
If you do not make this move now
No one will show you any sympathy

My Poems Are Poems Of The Light Of The Day

MY POEMS ARE POEMS OF THE LIGHT OF THE DAY

My poems are poems of the light of the day
The poems of the night are for others-
When the night comes
I hide and wait in silence
Until the day comes-
My poems are poems of the light of the day
And I dare not bring the poems of the night within them.

There Are Pains Beyond The Healing Of Poetry

THERE ARE PAINS BEYOND THE HEALING OF POETRY

There are pains beyond the healing of poetry-
Life’s wounds can be deeper than any helping song or thought-
A life can fail
And go into the ground
With all its cries unanswered.
Who are we to know why we suffer so sometimes?
Perhaps we deserve it,
Perhaps we do not.

There Are Times/ When The Poetry Of The Poem

THERE ARE TIMES/ WHEN THE POETRY OF THE POEM

There are times
When the poetry of the poem,
And the poetry of the poet
Are poetry.

But there are too times
When the poetry of the poet
And the poetry of the poem
Are not poetry.

There are times
When all the poetry,
And all the poets in the universe
Do not make the world a poem.

There are times that the walls

There are times that the walls
of the bedroom wants to fold in,
when sheer loneliness becomes too much
and the power of love focuses on loss
as if nothingness wants to fill the whole body
and we are stripped naked by it,
when it concentrates on love that still survives,
lingers while death have robbed us
and we yearn for something new,
for someone unknown.

To Prove They Are One of The Boys

They accuse him for doing something,
They've been doing since time began.
Sneaking around!
And being unfaithful,
Is what homophobics do.
To prove they are one of the boys!
Just to be set up to be destroyed...
By those 'boys' enjoying discreet and cloaked,
Wickedness.
Their ancestors wrote to be noted as something insisted.
With a self righteousness pretensed....
And an acknowledgement of this enlisted.

How Many Grains Of Sand Are There On The Beach?

we are on the beach
it is a very bright and warm day
the coconut leaves are cooling us
the shade is comforting
the sands so white
the sea is crystal blue
the sea gulls are singing
colored fishes come up from time to time
hiding in the corals

if you want to know how many grains of white sands
are there on this beach
begin the count

for the meantime
we are taking our much needed plunge

we leave you for a while
enjoy yourself.

You People Are All Over The Place

Am I gay?
Why?
Is that something to be today?
If it is...
Sign me up.

'Suppose it isn't? '

Well 'supposing',
You find something else...
To do with your time.
And...
If you don't mind,
I find eye to eye contact...
More significant,
Than what you are doing.
Lift them.
Up here,
Buddy.
Geeessshhh...
You people are all over the place.

'And what do you mean by that? '

You people.
You people with your eyes!
They're all over the place.
Stay focused.

If You Are Up To The Challenge

No.
Do not do that to yourself.
Do not wish to live a life to please me,
Or others you desire to impress.
You will never be happy doing that.
Because I know for a fact,
If I understood my own moods...
You'd be bored to tears.
Knowing you had wasted your life,
Uselessly devoted to someone so predictable.

However,
I will say this...
With that said!
If you are up to the challenge,
And love adventure.
By all means,
You'd be ideal.
And the one I have been seeking.
Since neither one of us would know,
What each day to us would bring.

The Poems Are Far Away/The Thoughts Far Away Also

The poems are far away
The thoughts far away also
The heat is too great
And the discomfort difficult
Waiting is not easy
Even if it is only for a few hours-

Soon the birthday guests will assemble
They will sing to me and say kind things about me
I will try in my way to thank and bless them-

It has been a long road
Those who put me on it
Are no longer here-

Now there are for me only the younger generations
Thank G-d for them-

May G-d protect them and enable them to flourish in the years to come
And may I go on for a while also.

New green leaves are all over the willow tree

New green leaves are all over the willow tree
and wherever I look
some pretty wild flowers I do see,
and arum-lilies are blooming in the brook

on this, the very first day of spring,
and it's if all of nature is welcoming me,
as if the birds do sing
and rejoice quite happily

as if to this great new world I do belong
as if everything around me is covered in beauty,
in a kind of innocence far from the trampling throng
and the feeling of the presence of God becomes strong

as the river forever rushes on merrily,
as if this place in nature is where I am meant to be.

Thomas Hardy

We Are Getting to the End

We are getting to the end of visioning
The impossible within this universe,
Such as that better whiles may follow worse,
And that our race may mend by reasoning.

We know that even as larks in cages sing
Unthoughtful of deliverance from the curse
That holds them lifelong in a latticed hearse,
We ply spasmodically our pleasuring.

And that when nations set them to lay waste
Their neighbours' heritage by foot and horse,
And hack their pleasant plains in festering seams,
They may again, - not warily, or from taste,
But tickled mad by some demonic force. -
Yes. We are getting to the end of dreams!
