Common Thoughts #7 – Meat Loaf & Brussels Sprouts

What exactly’s in a meat loaf?
I am sure that I don’t know.
Maybe some ingredients?
Still, it seems quite apropos

To serve it with brussels sprouts –
Those two things both mysteries –
One: I’m not sure what it is;
Two: I don’t know who likes these

tell me, love

so tell me, love, how do you feel

why do you wander, far and free,

why are you here, so far away

from home?

 

so tell me, love, is all this real

and are you truly there for me

will you be here to stay

or will you roam?

 

there’s echoes streaming

down the hill

there’s voices in

the clearing

for songs, they travel

where they will

they’re sometimes just

past hearing

 

so tell me, love, will nights be long

and full of worry, stress, and storm

a wilderness of sorrow, and

of doubt?

 

or tell me, love, will you be strong

and will love fold itself in warm

and shall, at last, tomorrow, we

find out?

The Images I Choose

I’ve been asked about the images I choose for these pieces.

  I buy the photos
(Most the time)
  That I post in this place

  Some find them, well,
  Salacious, and
  Imply there’s some disgrace

  In showing off
  These models, and
  The bodies they display —

  But yet, it is
  Deliberate:
  It’s what I mean to say –

  I’m fifty-three,
  Not handsome, and
  The irony’s not small:

  For image
  Isn’t anything:
  It isn’t real
  At all

Threads of Realization – 3

Everything is riven.

Everything

Everything

Is riven by evil

People

Are filled with it to their remotest corners

And answers —

We seek them, as to why

There is so much that is bad in the world

But the real thing

Inexplicable

Is why there is anything good

At all
