Should is something I’ve said a great deal “I should do this” “I should do that” “I should be this” Often I’ve said it to describe how little I’ve done Or how lazy I can be I’ve often said it with longing and to inspire motivation I’ve often said it because I’ve felt like a […]
This wall is my companion It hears my pleas The floor too It is just as patient and kind My prayers hit the ceiling Echoing off the spinning blades Reflecting off books and shoes Sound is absorbed in the corners All that is trapped are my words Who is there to hear them? Who is […]
I hate that I have to delete these files and hide these folders. It feels both weird and wrong. Wrong that it’s necessary and wrong that I want to do it. Wrong that part of me is enjoying the process. That I am even excited about it. But at the same time profoundly sad. And […]
(Help me to love…) My naivete is endless I think very simply and without much depth I act on impulse without thought to reception, intention and consequence I am your mouth and I butcher your words You have called me to create You have put this great love inside me and it overflows But I […]

This is too funny. There’s a couple pretty sweet lines, but it’s mostly ridiculous. The sweet ones are bolded. This is a piece I wrote for the Papyrus on April Fools’ Day, April 5th, 2006: These pretzels are making me thirsty… You wouldn’t believe just how much I’ve eaten in the past two hours, just […]
