the rains came early
like a flood of tears from god
cold like envy’s kiss
unsheltered i walked alone
longing for your gentle touch

finding good in everyone…

a cause for war

shall we call out
into the darkness
asking
god
to save
souls
who are lost
on
the sea
of
mortal sins
floating
with
full disregard
for
final judgment
ah
but
are they lost
or
on
a planned course
to
sodom and gomorrah
even
though
they know
it was
destroyed
long ago

covering bases…

covering bases

death
stands
on street corners
sometimes
wearing
old rags
sometimes
in
well-appointed suits
but
the eyes
are always
the
same
eyes
that penetrate
into
the places
you
try
to hide
where
your soul
abides
with all
of
sin’s barnacles
attached
to
the facade
of
your existence
so
you
pray
for forgiveness
to
a god
you
doubt
is there
but
as you note
one
mustn’t
eliminate
options
