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)

    Definitely for you
    ‘one time is not enough’.
    The more you see,
    the more you want to see…
    the more you want to listen to those voices that always bring you back.
    It is part of your existence.

    I truly sense your latest visit in these writings.
    You travel out West on your bike and I travel through the pages of ‘Searching For Crazy Horse’. It is my go to whenever you reference your trips out West.

    Thank you for sharing.

    • Laura🌻

      Oh yes, I most certainly do.

      the very best informed

      remain the most naïve'..
      (maybe, that's why I treasure this stunting, limitations
      that will always have me the student
      and never a graduate: of Life...)
      thanks for sharing
      such a meaningful message, dear Poet
