words from silence

gold and silver



            thus having nothing better to do

I returned to the open road

                                hitchhiking my way to California.

my ride, thinking his own thoughts

     I was free to consider my own annihilation.

it would be so simple 

one day here the next gone

but all that happens between now and then

is another story.

the way I speak for instance, it would not be like any other

yet I would be like everyone whose heart thrills

yearning at your door.

wanting to be well remembered, they say, when you

value verse, don’t hold back gold and silver.

there is no telling what I would say 

when you open and take me in 

to read more


I would love to hear from you
