The Journey to the West

Though we journey to the West We pray to the East More or less that's the way Each day begins and ends It’s a tale everyone ...

Poem for Ken (composed on the long walk home)

Listening to you explain how
The dark forces of personal 
History gather themselves
Along certain fault lines
In our lives I realized 
Just like the deepest
Metaphors are those
In which we interpose
Our bodies directly
Without hesitation
Or relief not so much
Because of what we say
As because of who we are 
Finally we come around and
Must learn to stand our ground
