it woke me up

there are noises you
hear only when not in your
own home. they wake you.

buzzing, drilling in my brain,
doesn't let me rest.

it's two-thirty now
and i can't sleep due to this
lousy buzz. unplug it?

the(ir) secret

housesitting allows
me access into their lives
and perhaps i'll learn

what's in their house that
they are in love and stay there?
they are organized

their homes are so neat.
everything in its place. there
chaos is controlled.

some have pictures and
some have pets. some have extensive
art and some TV.

there are those who get
magazines and catalogs
in their mailboxes.

i search for a love
scent in their houses. is it
lemon? cinnamon?

so far i have not
found they share a scent at all.
where is their magic?

i seek whatever
they found. i want to bathe and
perfume myself so.

i stay in their homes
so i learn the secret of
love. but it's not here.

Imagine a green
carpet covering the hills
shivering. Lovely.


Ancient rocks guard the
trees and soldier the river
as we drive past them.


My mind is cleared from
pollution as my eyes fall
on landscape sans ads.


There can be no food
shortage where we have issues
with obesity.

Food choices must come
from local, healthy options
whene'er possible.

The balance in food
resources must be restored
for all to eat well.
