your fading bellows
from the deep and dark rubble
your peace is our calm

A little red pineapple
ripens in the shade.

Do not speak to him
about his life... how dare you?
You do not know him.

Holidays end soon
All those visits and time spent...
Can I start again?


Time starts now I'm told
Don't wait until your ready
They years pass like days

Holding tight with both his hands
Swinging on the swings

Fragrance unbought, despite squirt

Prison death chamber
five straps on a long gurney
at one end... pillow


Author's note: It's terrible that capital punishment still takes place in Texas

Cherry blossoms are falling -
and now between the trees,
a temple appears
