you feel a storm
you move fast
you etch his name above your navel with hungry fingers
- the art of infatuation

Good. Bad.
I have been them.
Both.

one I knew
many years ago
all was fun
we didn't know
life was short
many years ago

'What reality is this?', she giggled.

Before a second had passed,
she had ceased to exist.
From where have all the flowers come?

CQD
S.O.S.
we're in distress
require immediate assistance.

Come quick as you can
tell your captain, Old Man
and pardon my insistence.

We're sinking fast
our ship won't last
despite our best resistance.

But as long as she floats
get ready your boats
to salvage our existence.

C.Q.D.
please talk to me
as it is, we aren't left much persistence.
//In Morse shorthand, CQD meant "To all stations, Distress".

it feels pretty strange
being called by a phrase
that isn't my name

Proudly standing, rigid trees
   Swaying gently in the breeze
We watch the shadows fall
   Switches whip, the twigs are severed
   Yet the mighty wood persevers
Awaiting its next call
   Day becomes night; sunshine ends
   Branches soon begin to bend
Raw bark peels in strips.
   Autumn comes; the trees must fight
   For each burning speck of light
Drudged from unwilling lips.
   We watch them quiver in the breeze
   The axe-man comes to fell the trees
The thinnest shall go first.
   Year by year, the seasons change
   We ignore the passing strange
Stiff bodies, in one hearse.
   No one knows if it shall end
   The loss of foe, alike with friend
Means sunlight for the living.
   “What shall happen to them all?”
   Still we watch the shadows fall
A gift that keeps on giving.

And I swam against the stream;
Swept by currents and hit rocks,
But I swam against the stream.
Take pride in your struggle.
