Dried Up Leaves

Suffering is like

A rusting wheelbarrow

No matter how  i may

Grasp the handlebars and push

Still i must guide in

across the rutted fields of my sins.


Worn is my thoughts

Like and over worn jacket

How button disappear like

Dreams that i attach with thread



How hair curls

Around the sunset serene

For in my labor

In the coming night

i shall not be missed

For worthlessness

is the only compass



Words rustle in me

Like dried up leaves

And i cannot fool

 the plants to grow

from their hiding place

And share their fruit..

My dented hoe

The only thing to steady

in the liquid of eyes….

in the interchange of planets

beyond the cleverness

of shrinking mind


As a bloated moon

Scatters tranquility

And moths make plots

 at closed windows

and my shadow is lost

in tangles of darkness ….
