the man upstairs
not god
my saintly tenant
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

we share a sip
strangers and friends
sit at this table
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

long silence
after dreams, before birds
enough space for thanks

slurring dove
tries to sing
high coo

you may end up where you are heading

flowers gone to seed
waiting for the wind
no conclusions drawn -
Doll, you may have found a place of rest but I'm still on the trail.

deep breath of weather
cool breeze
mind muddling smoke

life goes on
muddled or shallow
grateful all the same

waltzing across texas
eyes shut
heart open

morning maniac
high ku music
