    What I am proposing is not going to be easy.
    If it were easy it would be common.
    And yet, among the more than six billion,
    there are few who take their life seriously.
    Many believe free will is nil.
    You have your role. But no evidence. No betterment seen.
    It's behavior that matters - the dance of love.
    Calming. Tempestuous. Ignited by it.
    Close the gap. You have your role to close the gap
    Between life and love.
    What stops you from closing the gap?
    Dance the love.

Kind Of Like The Happy Prince

i awaken cast in gild
i have no breakfast
kind of like the Happy Prince

as of whom Oscar, that Pre-Movie starlet spoke
atop the steeple
neighboring broad clocks and bells of singing yellow
pleading the swallow to bring to they who leer and admire him his face of various jewels.

i gave my nose to a thirsty girl
my nose was a glorious ruby
like that of the Happy Prince

i too alike the swallow who fell in love with a reed in a faraway marsh, a reed with many of her kind she would not leave, and deep, deep roots set in pickled waters
safe from the winds...

Breathing Blue

beneath
beside
with gloom and pride
let us become the sea
so you may fill its shores with blue that's more alive than free
like dancing dreams of round machines that twinkle fast to speak
this breath that's blue
just like us too
so curse me like a streak
