A (wise) man of two faces
Musings, commentary, and the occasional parade of novelty.

Updates Monday - Friday

Not in season

The superficial
and artificial:
see if you can take
something so fake
and make it official.


Green around the edges

First night together -
things got a little awkward,
but they recovered.


Homeward bound

Looking for a place
where I can be myself but
it isn’t easy.


The Professional promenade

The dance
Moving in sync
Circadian rhythm
People working their 9 to 5
Dead beats.


Desperate

We fear the ending,
and deny it as though we
could change the future.


She had such kind hands 2

She had such kinds hands
like whispers in the night,
like swallow who’re in flight.

She had such kinds hands
gentle, and yet firm
teaching all that she had learned.

She had such kind hands
coaxing gasps and groans,
coaxing sighs and moans.

She had such kind hands
I pray that I will not forget
the kindest hands I’ve ever met.


She had such kind hands 1

She had such kind hands
they almost brought me to tears
they were so gentle.


Animation

The creator’s breath
imbuing motionless stone
with a beating heart.


A fine line

Maiden
Innocent, chaiste
Shining, saving, behaving
A hint of skin
Failing, falling, enthralling
Sinner, slut
Temptress


Jungian

A shadow repressed,
Anima and Animus:
the who we are not.


Family planning

A family of four
who wants one more
has fun trying,
but I’m not lying,
they’re a little sore.


Peripheral

You should wear a smile
because you cannot be sure
who might be watching.


Social network

The digital age,
a fingertip connection,
and hearts miles apart.


Naming names

Jeannine,
you broke my heart
and tore me to pieces
but now I’m strong enough to say
your name.


Mad world

The noble demon
carrying his honor
among God’s liars.
