Is There Anything New?

I bought a new lamp today
raku with a copper shade

I bought a new necklace today
Druzzy, black sparkles

I bought a wind chime of agates
and bird’s eye maple

There are many new things
they may be old

Is there anything new

it remains to be told

I’m Shaking It Off

Each stressful moment
each time cloudy gray

Each time fear foments
each time humor slays

I’m shaking it off
laughing my ass off

Though I am stuck
in this place

A Love Song

We have gone there
you and I, though we
have yet to arrive

When the evening is
spread against the sky
there is a song

There for you and I
heedless we go awry
it is our there

He is no longer He

yet he is he

best and worst

extreme he streams

through opposites

he here resides

he has me fixed

in opposition

Everyday a different ploy
to tear down the enemy

The assailing exhausts me
I am the enemy

I examine how I relate
ii is not always the best

It is hard, hard, so hard
not to react, which is danger

Never react, keep the peace
keep out of danger

Sometimes I assail
get in his face never to my avail

I Remember

Crisp sounds
cold night

Wind howls
across me

I remember

Pit Bull

The doctor says its as if you are living with a pit bull.
It is his nature, accentuated by his disease.
Get in his face and get yours ripped off.
Don’t challenge him, just abide.  You can’t reach him,
you can’t teach him, you can’t make a point.
Keep it peaceful regardless of what he puts out.

You role is caregiver, no longer wife.
Separate yourself as he is now childlike, yet
he is not a child for he is big and strong and you
are not equal to his strength or size.
You must never test him for he will eat you alive.

Be wise, be patient, be commiserative, be safe
