In the morning I read about heroes…

In the morning I read about heroes
At night it’s all vampires
This leaves noon a bit confused

Ghosts linked together
In unbearable light


When I was 8
I thought the guillotine
Was fascinating

An improvement
On the sword of Damocles


“Well that’s it,” said Uncle Distress
“Just look at all the yellow flowers!”


Before he was disabled Franklin Roosevelt
Knew how to throw a punch
Later he knew how to shine a light


Yes these are random notes
Unless you believe in physics


I love the phrase
“Power in circulation”
I love you
& your circulation


Riding the train to New York, looking at the spoiled factory towns, the haunted river, can I hold with one thought? I think I’m allowed a murmur. There has to be music in human silence.
