On warm spring days
the river holds you in its arms
as I long to: how absurd
to be jealous of a river.
I imagine the footsteps of the deer
to be your footsteps coming to see me
as the day wanes.  I know that will never be,
for reasons not even you believe
but I listen attentively anyway.
O how could you leave me here
alone, where tears stream so freely?

Good luck finding that
antinapm prompt-
I think they got stuck
in somebody’s loo
or were maybe flushed
out of the sewer.

All best,

Squares

The true use of the hypotenuse
was known to ancient magicians,
like the Athenian Greeks
and the early Egyptians- they were smarter
than modern day mathematicians.

They figured out the real meaning
of squares, and we merely took it from there...

Maybe I deserved to die
They saw someone kill the kid
and said it was me, but no,
I couldn't say anything,
The worst kind of alibi
A secret affair, they slid
The noose around my neck, oh
She watched and couldn't say anything.

25. Red

If this Robins breast
would brave a song
so loud it sings for help
then could he ask for winter sun
so warm the snows would melt.

Of Course there Are (4/20/21)


There are reasons one man should die for the people
just as the Sanhedrin said--
of course there are.

There are reasons to let mobs demand
an innocent be punished, then wash hands
just as Pontius Pilate did--
of course there are.

There are reasons to make sacrifices
just as God did--
of course there are...

but His were better.

I wasn't too bothered
when I lost at Hangman;
back home, we'd just laugh a bit
and start another game --

so I was surprised,
then terrified,
when Sophie sprang at me
with her skipping rope...

You lose, Leaf.
You hang.
