Losing all your friends and having nothing,
But still being able to run down and in between,
The grid that is Downtown Denver,
Whistling and dancing,
HERE'S A QUARTER MR. HOBO!

Hop off the bus near 15th and grab someone by the back of their shirt,
Howling and gasping,
"Maybe the stand-up comedians will understand"
Fluttering your breath after the 7th,
Cup of coffee,
Black and steaming like yer gurgling insides,
OH NO!!!!!

I'M A GONER!
THERE'S NOTHING FOR ME ANYWHERE!
AND I'M GOING TO DIE DIE DIE IN A PIE!

You put yer face into your hands and sob,
Noticing the feet going by and that the sun is still shining,
Looking up 16th the Daniels and Fisher Tower is still there,
The only relic of the Old West and a breeze hits so good,
You can smell the mountains...

Times like those always remind me of the tick tock of life,
How the seconds pass by and I treasure the minutes,
Passing by into hours of solitude and wonder,
The little voice says not to worry because:

"It's sweet,
Even when it's not."
I'd give you a hug if I could. But I can't, so you just have to know that I schlub you. You're my sugar and you make life sweet.

Labels...
Why is everything labeled?
             Straight
     ***
                                         *******
       Transgender
                            Bisexual
                                                    Gender fluid
Does it really even matter?
                                 Are you happy?
                Do you love yourself?
Do you love your partner?
        
             YES!!!!
Then who the **** cares!
Embrace yourself, love yourself, be yourself!
I feel it’s beautiful to see everyone happy, regardless of your “label”
Stop labeling everyone and LOVE everyone
Even if it’s not “who you are”
Let everyone be happy and live their life...
                                 Men/woman
                       Woman/woman
                Men/men
      Men to woman
Woman to men

                 Who cares!
       YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL
          YOU ARE LOVED
YOU ARE WHO YOUR MEANT TO BE
        BE YOURSELF!
I think it’s beautiful no matter what you identify as in life
Throw out the labels
Show some LOVE!

I jumped into a skin
and found old bones
a poets poetry
scattered across years.

(sonnet #MMMMMMMCDLII)


Blue skies are fragile twixt these icy, dense
White clouds, morn's eye uncertain in betrayl,
That glimpse half peering keenly through as pale
As Febry, though leaves dance for all intents
On maples tinged by ghostly yellow's sense
Of yonder, and they're trimming bushes, frail
Hours stacked like to those clustered houses, bail
The navy racks in tow where warmth's gone hence.
Tweed kilt in purple herringbone and fer
All that tights and a hooded shirt will do--
In grey, with nigh fluorescent yellow's cure
For lack of colour, I watch shadows to
Effect on golden washed green lawns in tour,
And sunset smoulders where dusk swallows blue.

I thought belatedly the next day that fluorescent should rather have been neon, but lazily left it. Kick me?  ARF!
