Common Ground

Who is right?
I am,
Me too, I'm right!
Who is wrong?

See You Next Time

it's that time
i place a smile
wave goodbye

fold in half
and cry

My head turned upside down oh
Ballcocks another drip 
I could call a plumber

no one loves me
like you did

educated maybe
to ensure 
that in future…

without tears

and another
and another
until I have a set
your set of songs

Walking Alone

In the distance I see three SUVs
parked on a muddy track.
Three people emerge,
one from each SUV.

My path takes me closer,
they are camouflaged,
pot bellied men,
each holds a gun.

I pass them by,
they do…
