The Day Your Silence Becomes Death

The time has come for you The moment life divorces you The day you can’t escape The last measure on age’s tape   Day that robs your breathe Day you can’t repent Day when decay becomes a friend Day you sleep beneath earth’s bed   Your haven for all seasons of toil Your new home in neighboring soil Your skin… Read more →

Full Circle

You’re back at the place you swore you’d never be.     You love her even though she’s smashed your heart to pieces.   She smashed your x-box to a thousand more pieces. She destroyed all the ties you had to all your friends. At first you told them they didn’t understand the responsibilities of being in a committed relationship headed… Read more →

Beni’s Cross

It was a big day for Beni. That interview he had long desired just came through and he did not want anything to stop him. He tried to convince himself that this time the job was his, standing in front of his cracked mirror, his hair reflecting in four unequal parts definitely needed to be combed. He searched his drawer for… Read more →

Autumn Leaves

I love the sound of the word. Autumn. It makes me think of “automatic” and the word ‘column”.  Columns make me think of Greece and Rome and the collapse of empires. The Fall of empires. Maybe this is why the Americans call Autumn “Fall”. Because the leaves drying up and lining the streets with red and gold leaves remind them… Read more →
