Still Learning, After All These Years


took another hit last night
that true old truism:
“If you can ask the question,
you already know the answer.”

mother said
“Tell me when too many msgs.”
daughter left physical note:
“Txt’ing not working,
call if you need anything.”
and then it was

blood is not the same as water
nor smoke the same as fire
fire in the blood fuels anger
just drink the water – more, more

where to go from here little Tear Drop
down the drain and up again
spirit listening in smoke rising
we are the same – different bios

if you can’t dance with the who that brung you
dance with the who stands by you
step step slide slide
