    Hi Eric, you write too much, I'm jealous. You really are like a Buddhist Priest at his temple.

    His voices

    Those voices
    Come from somewhere far
    Far, far a man. a man
    A man who travel by his mind
    Who has nothing but honest heart
    A man who candles light in his voice

    His words utterly heard
    Wander through the world
    With his wisdom played
    In every song he sings
    About pieces to be whole
    About scar to get healed

    Still far, far away
    Journey of him to bright
    To stop and sing his own melody
    Cheer people with his words
    Who believe in love

    Those voices
    I still hear today
    From a same man
    who still offers his heart
    for us learning something
    For us taking from his experiences
    So now i singing my own song
    for a man who sing us for long
    A man of far, far away
    But very near near inside Eric Cockrell
    Who is a man, where the candled sound comes

    Your history sets you apart. It's only as we grow older that we appreciate it all - as awful as it once was. Poetry gets us through... Thank you (as someone previously said, Sir!)

    In the poem, Insurrection, the one word 'breaking' has sparked you to think of a number of 'breaking outs' and bring out wonderful images.

One Last Cigarette

i took off my carpenter's apron,
laid my hammer on the nightstand.
unloaded my old shotgun,
and stood it against the corner.
i lowered the flag, put out the fire,
put sheets across the windows....
turned off the lights, pulled off my boots,
and walked out barefooted into the night!
