SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA“Do you like butter?”

Remember that?

Dandelions revealed

the love of fat.

Held beneath

anyone’s chin

they summoned up

the butyrin.

If you didn’t like butter

you wouldn’t glow

scientific proof

the ultimate show.

Thus is it clear

what these bugs are about:

empirical evidence

resolving doubt.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAFifty years

is a long, long time

unless you’re Centaurus

or a diamond mine.

So half a century

of lives intertwined

should be noted

exploded

confetti’d

and dined.

A toast to the couple

my friends Bill and Donna

resounding happy wishes

from their

wizened Maid of Honor.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAWhat is voice?

I have wondered.

How do words become

voice?

Then I read the words

of Emily Doe

soundless to my ears

but in my head

jackhammer

chewing concrete

Rachel

weeping

green-black thunder

of torrid summer storm

voice

He raped a writer.

Words are all she has

voice

anguished

solo

over the chorus

of the bloody writhing

the siren-screaming

together

now

coming at us.

Words are all we have.

Will they be

voice?

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAWhat does it mean

move on?

What does it mean

resilience?

What does it mean

good out of evil?

Does it mean

don’t feel

?

Does it mean

we fear our own complicities?

we grope toward atonement?

toward private satisfaction

that

we

are not

them

?

Or is there anguish

that seeks a word

 any

useless

flailing

word

because

it’s all we have

?
