Surreal

June 17, 2017

I keep dreaming
That this is all
A dream
It seems crazy
But when I wake
I realize
The dream is that
It is not
And reality
Is really
This surreal

Anxiety

June 15, 2017

What will happen next
I don’t know
You don’t know
Nobody knows!
How can nobody know?
This is insane
Every breath
A mystery
We can’t even
Learn from history
What will happen
What will it be
I wish I knew
It’d cure my
Anxiety

Profession

June 13, 2017

Old Oak doors
Block the way
Sturdy, old
Wooden
Creaking
Cracking
But unmoving
Progress
Never came.

Apocalypse

June 12, 2017

They’ll come
Marching
Just watch
Like four
Evil Horsemen
Right down
The fairway
Of greed
Smoking
Cohibas
And laughing
About how
They landed
A big merger
So they could
Fire half
Their workers
And still turn
A healthy
Profit

Time

June 10, 2017

Is hard to believe
All this is happening
So fast.
I wish we could
Stop time
And hold hands
And make it last.
By alas, time is
A fickle friend
Slipping by
Until the end.
We must embrace
This simple truth
Before it stops
Leaving us aloof.

Trying times

May 30, 2017

Translating
The truth
From the lies
Once the media’s job
Now lies
In the untrained hands
Of the masses
God help us all.

Better day

May 28, 2017

What is the point of this all
Swimming around
In a sea of waste
Forgetting the point
Of living in haste
This just keeps going
Slowly and surreal
Eventually stopping
And walking away
May be the only
Path to a better day
