Anodes & Cathodes

February 3, 2017

Open your eyes and greet all the negative anodes

They’re coming for you, may as well decorate, Cathode

No place to run, turn on the oven and roll dough

Take a deep breath and welcome your enemies home

Water softens stone

 

Bow your curls to friend and foe alike

Keep pure your heart with the mindful over might

In the depth of your soul’s midnight

Carry them home

 

Walk on a wire, the trick is not to look up or down

Face toward the fire, allow all the sweat to bead your brow

Sing out and smile, the wordless song is free to all

Should they take aim, you can’t reach everyone, down you fall

Know that it’s not your fault

 

Bow your curls to friend and foe alike

Keep pure your heart with the mindful over might

In the depth of your soul’s midnight

Carry them home

Count To Three

January 25, 2011

The sky is wondering what to do now

Just be clouds or rain

The geese are falling into V’s now

Heading south from Maine

 

Now close your eyes and count to three

When they open, turn to me

I am here on bended knee

Will you be my bride to be?

 

I feel I knew you as a school girl

Lost at lunch in shame

And felt the sting of you in high school

When your prom date never came

 

Now close your eyes and count to three

When they open, turn to me

I am here on bended knee

Will you be my bride to be?

 

The clouds, the softest white of blankets

Tucks in you and me

The miles are stretched along between us

But safe in bed, we’ll believe

 

Now close your eyes and count to three

When they open, turn to me

I am here on bended knee

Will you be my bride to be?

Now close your eyes and count to three

When they open, turn to me

I am here on bended knee

Will you take me endlessly?
