I wonder why

I wonder why

They don't call me insane

Dreams flair then flicker then flop

Realities change, traffic lights the same

Some carry on and some just stop

I wonder why

The grand marshal's dead but race is on

Bold brick walls and smooth silk sheets Still could not hide the dawn

Every day I wake for this blunderous sun

Every day I smile, my mirror does not

I wonder why

理想 - 俳句


Ideal - A Haiku

Let's just hope we are
wrong this time - no, not you
Or me but - this world

Dreams alive 
"A hundredth time"
I lived today
I die tonight

I might

Act and dance and
then step down,
So I heard it's true,
A stage

Thank you 

For the lovely mornings 
I did not wake,
For the beautiful places
I did not see,
All those 
Summer faces faked.
I'm grateful for 
This perfect take 

Maybe with
A wistful face,
It has been a cloudy day
It has been a starry night

My Arson

Empathy, a federal felony 
Keeping curtains closed, a crime 
Burn the bridge
Lock the door
There is no other side 

Keep your speeches short
They don't care,
Rusty men and microphones 

Kept it solemn 
Kept it sudden
Pages in epics,
Such betrayals 
I wish upon it,
The greatest misfortune 
Your bonfire 
My arson
