even in his dreams

their smiles

posed and held

The end of the world lies inside You.

Holding up

On the wall

it sticks,

hold tiles:

each one

in its place.


Who thinks

it holds the house

Dining in

Sitting here

waiting for food

is what we do.

I’ve strung my lines,

food will come.

I’m energetic,

but now wait

for flyer

to be tangled.

~Duane L. Herrmann

   The sun rises

                    the ebb tide flows

Outside our apartment

gusts of spring wind

can't blow away my diagnosis

birds sing

Don't they?
