To Always Return (+1)

For me,

one time is not enough

Canyons widen

neath mountain bluffs


For me,

each time lay unforeseen

Magic transient

—a richer dream


(Montrose Colorado: September, 2021)




Lambs To Slaughter



the very best informed

remain the most naïve



in 1963,

“Oswald Was The One”


The Mob sat back

and licked their chops,

“Bobby’s Finished Now”


As millions mourn

in false belief

—and Warren to mislead


(Crazy Horse Memorial: Black Hills South Dakota, September, 2021)
