Don’t Ask Me Why

What you see here
as you read through
let me be clear
is not for you
I write for me
and let you see
my mind's designs

Even Losers

The battles fought
with words or guns
are all for naught
if everyone’s
on the wrong side
behind their pride
so all must fall

Not a Picnic

Holding tight to
her teddy bear
on a flight through
here to somewhere
as nightmares play
both night and day
to form her norm
