here ya go ...

Oh, yah ... I know you all were just breathless in anticipation of me posting another poem ... yeah, sure ... but here it is ... now that I'm finally back at my desk.

                    ONE IMMERSION SEEING

                    unavailable synch
                    disjointed attributes
                    we are unable
                    to be in unity
                    with our intents
                    we are unable
                    to be in union
                    with our will

                    we see the symbols
                    as in a dream
                    they flash below
                    perception's line
                    flickering beneath
                    the zone we know
                    out of reach
                    of analysis

                    dark confusion
                    muddled haze
                    painters frozen
                    held in time
                    carved wood horses
                    in harsh light
                    desolate models
                    awaiting death

                    strange machines
                    all too ancient
                    standing walls
                    which never fall
                    empty vistas
                    which fade to pasts
                    fleeting, teasing
                    all too brief

                    how to sort
                    these data streams?
                    how to find
                    what each meme means?
                    too often we are swept along
                    unable to focus
                    unable to know
                    barely holding in the flow

  • Well, that happened (again) ...

    I was sitting in Starbucks, trying not to fall asleep reading, when the odd urge to write a poem surfaced. Given that I think I wrote all of one…

  • So, this happened ...

    My previous therapist had been encouraging me to dip a toe back into writing poetry. I explained how that had all gone sideways for me back before I…

  • Multi-Media ... just for you!

    OK, so now I have a "sample" page featuring one poem for every month of the 1994 collection ... one down, 11 to go (well, and then more to go beyond…
