The Older You Get

Time really does start to fly,
And not only when you're having fun.
You race to try to catch it, catch up,
To feel more, be more, not to miss out,
But the moments still pass right by.
Hard to tell the present from the past,
What was from what is momentarily.
It's not so much about you anymore,
What you are and what you could be,
But only about what you can give.
That becomes the only true measure
of time.

Now and Here

Now and Here

I yearn for
A language
That all
Can hear.

A message
For once
Not based
On fear.

A prayer
For peace
To bless,
Endear.

For light that
Is sweet,
Human,
Sincere.

For breath that
Is felt 
From afar
And from near.

A vessel
That's true,
Present
And clear.

Hypertension

Hypertension

My Heart is attacked
My Joseph in flames
Inpatient admission
Strong pulse still remains.

David's divided
Arteries and veins
His doctors are reckless
His arms are enchained.

Truth will not sprout
Without fertile ground
In a Mount full of foxes
No search for a hound.

Neo Batman Potter Morning


I wake up reciting
Ancient writing
And washing
The scar in
My forehead.
then take a blue pill, 
Levothyroxine
Cape and belt
Are strapped in
Arm and head
Gear, Tefillin
For Robin
And for red 
I'm still waiting.

Neo Batman Superman, Dad

Neo Batman Superman, Dad

I found the red 
And Robin, too.
I'll take the red
And take the blue.

I also found
My kryptonite
Rose from the ground
With my sun's light.

I'll have my cake
And eat it, three
Just have to make
It gluten free.

Directions

Directions
If it were
Up to me
I'd take on
Every stringency
I'd spend my days
In thought and prayer
From text to text
And lose myself in mystery
Then realize it never was
Or ever will be up to me.
It's always been about some
One else who begs us all
To go down to Him.
