hacked jack – September 1

8.31.2015

electronic blips zip

and the money goes

bye bye

 

across aeons of

ions to somewhere

else

 

while our minds are

turned elsewhere

vulnerably

doggy happiness – August 31

8.31.2015

doggy looks so

happy to be out

in the park

 

next to the lake

where smells

abound

 

and every tree is

a pit stop for

messaging.

awakening slow – August 30

8.30.2015 [awakening slow]

awakening slow with

gnarled hands

pain

 

the stretching is a

friend across

time

 

a knowledge that

maybe some

things

 

don’t go away in

this anymore

space.

the lion appears – August 28

8.23.2015

the lion appears

large sleepy

eyes gazing

 

I look back affecting

calm, lean to breathe

into its face

 

as it opens its

mouth to chew

on my hand

 

like a dog not

yet biting down

but en route.

 

the naked power

terrifies me yet

I lead others

out away

 

who then do not under

stand why I yell at

them.

 

life and death I swear

but they hear only

that I have raised

my voice.

a blessed day – August 26

8.26.2015

mowing the lawn

adding seed to the

bird feeder

oiling a hinge

 

everyday everyday

walks through

normality

 

the stuff of life

straight forward

the gist of giving

and receiving

 

just because.

characters arrive – August 25

8.25.2015

characters arrive as
old friends

the three pines
spinning tales

of bravery, fear,
faith, decency;

a good book
opening

recollections of
things known

before we knew.

atonement – August 22

8.22.2015

a gift given without

repayment

 

perhaps a step

towards

 

the day of debts

owed

 

covered by

grace.
