there is a beeping

we can't figure out from where

please stop your beeping

. . . [10/22/23]

. . .

tomorrow, i'll go

it will be different, we'll see

they are still them though

. . . [10/22/23]

. . .

saw music last night

better than i thought it'd be

we're glad that we went

. . . [10/22/23]

. . .

dreaming of designs

and blood, i'll tell you the truth

i'll follow the art

. . . [10/22/23]

. . .

six thirty is dark

as though it's night, it's dark

time change will be soon

. . . [10/23/23]

. . .

we play with "the time"

as though we can play with it

we play with our minds

. . . [10/23/23]

. . .

that's all we play with

to make us more comf'tur'ble

what do you play with

. . . [10/23/23]

. . .

it is so quiet

no birds, no dogs, no chainsaws

just that single beep

. . . [10/23/23]

. . .

wiggles, dashes, dots

what else the stuff of patterns

anything you want

. . . [10/23/23]

. . .

now i hear some birds

waking up as the day comes

slowly but surely

. . . [10/23/23]

. . .

we live together

people choose to partner up

those that do choose to

. . . [10/23/23]

. . .

a friend to live with

to go through all of this

to say "how 'bout this?"

. . . [10/23/23]

. . .

we check in on stuff

we torment about living

and we have true love

. . . [10/23/23]

. . .

sleep overs daily

but we have alone time too

funny, living life

. . . [10/23/23]

you wake up early

that's you giving yourself space

don't give it away

. . . [10/23/23]

. . .

it's hard to see now

without the past and future

i will try harder

.[must]

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

sight colored by time

perception by everything

hard job to stop that

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

can it be simple

but not easy, as they say

can it even be

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

he'll see his fam'ly

i'll spend that time here working

working to be true

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

i've a classic veil

i can see but not fully

it's a heavy one

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

look to now, not then

make these moments now, better

they will all add up

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

so notice and love

this sit and tea is lovely

this is a good now

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

stay here, how 'bout now

yes, of course it's lovely too

what was that noise though!

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

i guess just nothing

not a big enough something

and it goes away

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

hard not to hit back

we think "in kind" makes most sense

lots in the moments

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

quiet of morning

such a good choice to have made

noticing now helps

. . . [10/24/23]

. . .

you have trapped yourself

it's a metaphor - feels real

figure out the lock

. . . [10/25/23]

. . .

can't quite figure it out

what is the real obstacle

or is that fake too

. . . [10/25/23]

. . .

have i made this up

oh dear, that's messy i'd say

just go bird by bird

. . . [10/25/23]

. . .

hmm, what can i change

what part of this is my part

what am i holding

. . . [10/25/23]

. . .

you do some good work

you're trying to see through this

maybe don't see through

. . . [10/25/23]

. . .

murder for murder

just call it what it is now

no more metaphor

. . . [10/25/23]

. . .

we'll do what we can

sharing and list'ning to all

i hope it's the truth

. . . [10/25/23]

. . .

sitting here daily

is this something that should change

we all do these things

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

let's get back to view

can it really just be that

maybe just try it

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

so i'm here for now

just this body on this couch

tea's about ready

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

and you're over there

who'er you are doing that

we'll all start this day

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

there are some sure things

the trees will sway in the wind

and i won't die yet

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

these days are these days

'need a different way through them

or just diff'rent thoughts

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

what else comes to you

what else can you tell the world

we make it matter

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

pretty powerful

making anything happen

need the energy

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

i don't check on him

not right away anymore

he's doing quite well

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

ok - let's focus

so often the good gets lost

negative bias!

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

i have so much good

and so much of it i chose

i made great changes

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

these things are hap'ning

life moves, and changes, and is

this is me today

. . . [10/26/23]

. . .

this quiet, this time

it is right now and it's true

what are you doing

. . . [10/27/23]

. . .

i'm sorry i asked

not quite the spirit of it

let's just be quiet

. . . [10/27/23]

. . .

they're in italy

soon to paris and so he

this could be the last

. . . [10/27/23]

. . .

but it might not be

strange thing about wondering

it could be diff'rent

. . . [10/27/23]

. . .

expectations taint

they put a color on all

what's the real color

. . . [10/27/23]

. . .

so glad for this time

the tea, the music, the space

just be with it now

. . . [10/28/23]

. . .

. . .

    I was wondering where you went. So glad to see you're back. The one about murder was my favourite part!
