  • When They Cry

    When my father cries,

    He sticks his lip out,

    Like a kid,

    His jaw shaking,

    Eyes red.

    He cries when a truth is told;

    Someone’s leaving,

    The end is near,

    Or a fault is exposed,


  • The You That You Are

    I love the you that you are when you are alone, 

    The you that you are when you’re at home, 

    When you look with soft eyes at the cat, 

    The you that you are when you step onto the doormat. 


  • Miss Bleary Eyes

    Hello, Miss Bleary Eyes,

    Are you still searching for those long lost spies?

    I never took you for the type to spend that much time,

    On things like me, on twisted minds.

  • Life Update?

    You wanted a life update, well here I am.

    Up late wondering, pondering, what makes a man.

    Get up twice as early, bleary frosted sun,

    A tik-tok silence stuck in the head, you know, it means more to some.
  • The Graveyard Helper

    The graveyard helper passes from moment to moment.

    Maybe he ran away from home.

    Maybe he really believed in the “small acts of kindness” lesson back in 1st grade.

    Maybe he went through something so sad he changed.
