Coming to America

Coming out
Coming back
Coming home
Coming to terms with realities
Coming to understand self and others
Coming of age in times like these
Coming around
Coming soon
Coming far


Opinion Piece

All that remains is a ribbon for the gift
It is not like I no longer have opinions on topics
Everything has already been accomplished
Everyone has already done everything
It is more like I no longer have opinions to share
All that remains is icing for the cake



Contribution to a Greater Good

Not sure how
Uncertain why
No one keeping minutes
of time flying by

What are appropriate
measurements of contribution
any one person can
make to revolution?

Answers to the questions
add new rounds of query
The loops we then circle
leave us dizzy and weary

Alone we are
with decisions we make
Alone forever
with paths that we take


Meaningfully Necessary

Some thoughts about the time spent
doing things that are viewed solely
as wholly unnecessary

Resources are expended on the unnecessary
and on the unrelenting pursuit of the meaningless

Yet value and satisfaction can be found
in the meaningless and in the unnecessary
This the essence of luxury and this is
the basis of art and spiraling madness

What is justified as meaninglessly unnecessary
may very well be exactly what is
meaningfully necessary for sanity and survival
You know what they say about one man’s trash

We should all have the great fortune to unrelentingly
pursue our personal necessary and meaningful

Now that I think of it I may be feeling
a certain satisfaction having spent this time
thinking about how my time is best spent



Six Fun Facts

1. I really wish I could remember
that last very brilliant thing I thought
about just a little while ago

2. I am often purposefully
either the very first to commit
or the very last to believe

3. I will force you to wholly depend
on me or to be wholly independent
of me entirely

4. I don’t have to actually execute
the work if I have thoroughly
conceptualized the work in my mind

5. I do not think I am better than
you – it’s more a function of me
knowing how very not you I am

6. I think that sometimes It’s all
over for good forever and a new
paradigm needs to be cultivated
