Leaving Again (+2)

Kurt Philip Behm

We’re born,

as we start dying


We change,

while remaining the same


We search,

neglecting to find


We return

—while leaving again


(Ronald McDonald House-Phila: January, 2020)




Death's Tribute


With memory escaping,

 you stare down the hall


From that place where you hang,

 last nail in the wall


You once were a sovereign,

you used to be real


What death left in tribute

—your portrait conceals


(Villanova Pennsylvania: January, 2020)



Future Bought


A PhD in emotion and feel,

licentiate of what lives within


Professor of imagery, doctor of will,

a Saint with a penchant for sin


Explorer of evil with devils to hunt,

the fire burns liquid and hot


Degrees of atonement, diplomas unread

—graduate of words future bought


(Villanova Pennsylvania: January, 2020)
