Let it go,

let it be,

this voice that is bothering me,

your name reminding me

to slow it down.

The spaces in your head–

those crevices ain’t dead,

just waiting for a whisper

and you’re gone.

Your Place

Don’t ever be so busy

trying to find your own


that you forget about your piece

in others:

the piece you play

the peace you hold

the tears you catch and dry

the hands you hold and pry

open to expose their secret

holdings– but only

when they’re ready

it’s what makes it so difficult

to stay in

and out of oneself

at the same time, in balance

so you can remember

how holistic thinking

is not a 21st century conundrum

but a sip of the past, future

and present

connection of man.
