On that is that folks... ride safe, ride free, stand together... Solidarity forever
and remember to hug the ones you care about... even in solitude and loneliness
there is the yearning for romance and a touch...
Anyway... enough babbling and rambling... here are a few poems... I hope you like them. I always want your feed back... you all make me a better person.

well I have a few new ones or at least two and one that has two versions, maybe drafts,
a look at the evolution of the poem in progress i guess one could say.
It's hot and dry round these parts, but my cucumbers and zucchini's are hardy little guys and my strawberries have taken over. Muskrat's remembering to grin and bear it, growl and go.
But enough of that here are some new one's as promised... enjoy, let me know what you think.

So that's Muskrat... he's a good egg, a little miss guided and still learning like we all do all our lives.
give him some time, he may come around...
Solidarity forever... ride free, be safe and tell the people around you you love them.

Right now I have a few new poems. One that i composed for a coworker on demand for his last day at work. It's kind of a work poem for the lonely barista's and the such. I also just recently sent out a few poems to Syntax Magazine up in Denver. A fellow Poet and friend City Mouse resides there and fingers crossed, is pitching my stuff to the editor. Thanks brother, I owe you.
Last work poem for Brandon
Bob Dylan is singing his Visions of Johanna
over the loud speaker in the lobby
and here among the early evenings
we still pour burnt milk
and pray for thirty mile gusts of wind
to lift patio umbrellas
into a red sports car side door
or for the girl in her black jeep
to pause and smile
write her number on a sweet and low sugar
and drive onto Montgomery
until tomorrow's caffeine
addiction brings us together
without interruptions from headsets
or twenty four minute timers
give me a quad espresso
Eighty fifty and hour
Chai in my cereal
and her number on a sweet and low packet
Later today I have some of the first of Muskrat's ramblings to share... if I never explained Muskrat to you. I will give a brief scribbling inkling of him later this afternoon.
until then god speed lil animals
I love you... ride safe. ride free and keep a song in your hearts
smell the bottoms of your tomatoes for happy thoughts

the zucchini are coming up as are my carrots
as for myself, these things are slipping out of my mind as fast as I can.
I'll take the easy way out tonight and post another poem.
Some Muskrat ramblings and other goodies to come soon I promise...
Here are two new ones from my new house and giving due to my garden.
Chasing away the lonelys with poems and digging in the dirt...
untitled (with apologies to ann struthers who always said that untitled poems were a sign of laziness; sorry i'm feeling lazy these days)

Kind of enjoying this perma-student thing. Not a bad way to go.
The wind is picking up outside, I can hear the dirt shifting
spring time again i guess,
Someone pointed out that this year is my golden birthday... 31 on the 31st of this month.
it is what it is...
here is a poem i spat out on demand a few months back for a fellow worker...

So here goes nothing
and I must say I am pretty darn good at nothing.
Welcome to Muskrat, he's small, furry, opinionated, likes his music and books and his garden and the what not... Right now the sausage is burning on the stove top and the screen door is hanging off its hinges begging for attention but that will have to wait for another day. As for now here's a new poem or two rather that I feel pretty satisfied with at the current moment. But you know how it goes, what is life without constant revision.
I hope you enjoy and more poems, ramblings, reviews of music and ideas and books and the such to come as my mind spits them out...
As always solidarity forever, and be safe and ride free
