    to a giant sloth

    To a giant sloth,
    The world is less mystery
    Than discovery.

    I will get my brush.

    silence in its palm

    silence in its palm
    switch stations relentlessly
    you have turned me off
    If I'd had more time, I'd have written a shorter letter. Mark Twain

    I want to kick the doors to
    my mind open now

    My mind open now
    To the wide, limitless skies,
    My dreams catch the clouds.

    under searching hands
    I find the feather you shed
    my angel my love

    under searching hands
    the earth's rich soil is turned
    Spanish coins revealed

    under searching hands
    a hidden clue discovered
    you are found guilty

    under searching hands
    I tease out these last few words
    then no more searching
    If I'd had more time, I'd have written a shorter letter. Mark Twain

    You are found guilty,
    Your con-man, fake prophet lies:
    Rapture? What rapture?

    Puncturing an eye,
    I say to myself, next time
    Don't run with scissors.

    Don't run with scissors,
    walk with eyes open and up
    staring at the sun

    Staring at the sun,
    its daughter's shadow glows blue
    when I turn away

    When I turn away,
    There are still spots in my eyes.
    Blind, for now, to you.

    Blind, for now, to you,
    three old mice juggle the tails
    you stole from their youth

    wizened gray haired ones
