untrained mind
commits
the heinous acts

with the untrained mind
the train is
scheduled
to unravel

a little practice to
bow to
the light switch
is only
to recognize
the very act of
flipping it
taking nothing
you do
as insignificant
(wax on? no! wax… OFF!)
the typical godhead is not involved

go out from
your apartment
and see the
story unravel
before your eyes
and in your heart
know its
message
solve it with
the next crossword
true meaning
the lesson
class is
always
in session

or sitting still
so slow
the pains rise up
the bartender says
“you’re no stranger
to pain”
she drinks nothing herself
doesn’t like the
taste of alcohol
has traversed the length
of the tunnel
has outdone her peers
says times are
hard for many and people are
not always going
to make the
best choices for themselves
but they are
what they are
and says to me:
“it’s good to see you smiling again,
good to see
your vibrant self…”

you can say anything
we can do it all
but it’s coming down
to thinking it all out for
what’s best…
so don’t think
I’m a prude for
fine turning
the lists
or paying the
party line no mind
and I think
voting is a waste
like perhaps
these notes
one-liners and
abstract mantras
to you are
of no use

I would like
to think you and I
are here
for each other
to help each other
but I can’t always see
the outcome
not everyone knows
the true value of a thing

on the dance floor
they say I move as if
I am “moshing”

I say it’s right
and who can say
I don’t have rhythm?

she says “I didn’t think
you’d take to it so greatly!”

surprise!

let us talk everything out

I wonder if
even here
jumping around
being moved by the
high wind beats
we’re finding our solutions
