ADD ambulance

July 30, 2008

Hello ADD ambulance, Dave speaking…
Wait – let me get a pencil.

Ok, where was that?
Ok, we’re on our way.

Let’s go – heart attack –
43 Sechrist .

Sechrist or Sea Crest?

Shit. I’m not sure.
Shit! We’re on empty.

Good, I need coffee.

Shit. I need smokes.

so many years –
I was thinking all along
we were made to last

shimmering leaves
wave to the universe
light years away

the spiritual revolution may come too late:

just as saying “I love you”
or “I’m sorry”
may come too late –

while slipping out
of life, mute
and alone,

surrounded
by strangers.

 

 

 

when death comes

when death comes

the hand of life
reaches down

to lift up the soul
like a kitten

and gently
place it elsewhere

dreamer

I have been

floating

tumbling

spinning

turning

through

lifetimes

my soul
is silvered
with stardust

a long chase

in
and
out
of
forever…

with each wave
these last moments
bathe our consciousness

there is nothing else.

the breeze
takes our hair
to wave goodbye

jobs are waiting.

put the tiny shells
in your pockets
I tell the boys

so the big ones won’t crush them.

two buddies –
they are eleven
never to be eleven again

the wind dries the tears I hide.

where then?

July 5, 2006

it may seem
as one gets older
and friends
begin to die off
and associates
begin to die off
and siblings
begin to die off
and unknown age-mates
populate the obituary

it may seem
life has become a game
of musical chairs
