Did you smile today?



Black & White





life has always been wrong
wrong dreams, good dreams
and nothing in between
I’ve tried to see the tree in the seed
the bird in the feather
the life in the rock
but sometimes I just wonder
why the light at the end
of this tunnel looks

it flows
from the hourglass
on the bottom of the
deep blue sea
instead of
the time
we wish we had

the numb
and the distant
belonging to a life
of endless crawl

we shall
in between
dark and emptiness
just to
wake up from
this dream

one day


blood floods the lonely
heart, the blue sea of silence
and the eye closes
on distant sunsets of soul
dreaming of one day of light

and smile
for you are the
light in my night

wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I’m not going
to let anybody see

wants to get out
but I pour whiskey on him and inhale
cigarette smoke
and the whores and the bartenders
and the grocery clerks
never know that
in there.

there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too tough for him,
I say,
stay down, do you want to mess
me up?
you want to screw up the
you want to blow my book sales in
there’s a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I’m too clever, I only let him out
at night sometimes
when everybody’s asleep.
I say, I know that you’re there,
so don’t be
then I put him back,
but he’s singing a little
in there, I haven’t quite let him
and we sleep together like
with our
secret pact
and it’s nice enough to
make a man
weep, but I don’t
weep, do

it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
it could mean freezing on a
park bench.
it could mean jail,
it could mean derision,
isolation is the gift,
all the others are a test of your
endurance, of
how much you really want to
do it.
and you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds
and it will be better than
anything else
you can imagine.

if you’re going to try,

there is no other feeling like
you will be alone with the gods

you will ride life straight to
perfect laughter, its
the only good fight
