Today's Jim-dandy!

He learns, from the internet, how to open a wine bottle with a shoe. Jim-dandy! But he doesn't drink anymore.

Poem - even asking/ if it needed to be found

even asking
if it needed to be found

meant it was here
all along

playing idly
like imagining clouds

and what they

a dream boat
a person
a place
a name


Just before July
Oak Park

Poem - mysterious beautiful/ moment

evening of
past storm
hundreds of fireflies

orange sunset
beautiful moment

oh yes
the speaker
then is silent

Poem - night

rooms full of trees and houses
the river was in the hallway
going down the stairs

Poem - June 14

for Francesco

my grandiose plans are just that
we should all strive for moderation

if i do achieve my fair share
then i have failed to abide in the portion

so i beg of guidance for joy
in meditation of doing

simple love
in a world full of striving

is from the head
to the heart."
