Santoka's Shadow

(two mantras)

Into the mountain
He went
Never to return

Deep into the mountain
He went
Never to return

Deep into the green mountain
He went
Never to return

The road
To a crematorium

The empty road
To a crematorium

The nearby empty road
To a crematorium

A Naked Woman And A Naked Chicken

a naked woman
a woman with no cloth
walks into a grocery store

 the shoppers dash in
screaming and howling
like monkeys in trance


 a naked chicken
a chicken with no feather
walks into a grocery store

 the shoppers dash out
screaming and  howling
like monkeys in terror

Your Beginning And My End

the beginning with no end
you say your love for me is forever
your love is eternal
there is no end

the end with no beginning
I say my love for you is not forever
my love is not eternal
there is no beginning

as your music begins
my music ends
as your passion  burns
my passion is extinguished
as you are born and reborn
I leave the cycle of life
and as you become a goddess
I shall be no more

A Paper Boat

you learn to make a paper boat
because you want to leave Kansas plain
and sail across the ocean

no need to know where you want to go
you will never reach there
and you will not return

A Warm Blue Lake

I untie
I open
the ice

I wade into warm blue lake
you in my arms
summer heat
red
in winter snow
white

disrobed
the blue light is still
the darkness throbs

burning red
white cold

gentle waves take us
to the other shore
to our shore
