a beautiful woman
when you compliment her,
and tells you
she is ugly.
I've got a friend
in this Mid-valley town.
I tell her
I think it is a gorgeous
and sexy place.
"Well, you didn't
grow up here."
A palm tree
haloed by a street light
was my Christmas tree this year
and there was room
at the Holiday Inn.
No sleeping in a stable
And where are you tonight James?
Loves GallowsLove's Gallows
The drums roll
The crowd jeers
I step out onto the gallows
Confess my sins
Hand you my sword
I am ready to pay those sins, my love
Having shown you where to strike
I stretch my neck out on the block
That spot most hidden
That place most vulnerable
Where the blade bites deepest
Please make it a clean stroke, my love
The drums beat faster
The crowd jeers louder
Resigned to my fate, I close my eyes
And tense, waiting for the blade
On that spot most hidden
On that place most vulnerable
I receive your most loving kiss
Mercy, my love, mercy
Who would have expected it
At this late hour?

While digesting two cheeseburgers and a side order of fries,
you begin to speculate on the circumstances of strangers,
assigning stories to the unfamiliar faces. The scraggly fellow with a pen becomes a millionaire poet incognito,
transforming the lunch habits
of the working poor
into the ultimate metaphor
for the nature of existence.
And the throng of giggling adolescents
at the table to the left, are plotting
the overthrow of the Archdiocese,
starting with Saint Ignatius' School
for Wayward Girls. But soon,
you find your attention shifting,
dwelling upon the two figures furthest from you:
A stick-thin girl, midway through her teens,
and a bearded man, at least a generation removed.
They could be father and daughter,
or illegal lovers, wedged into one side
of their corner booth like paupers
in Potter's Field. They sit graveyard still,
motionless as upright corpses,
neither daring to disturb the ghosts
laid buried in their silence.
Something is strangely amiss,

We came to this planet because ours was gone.
The quest for power consumed our home. The need for domination destroyed us. Still we live, and yet there is a piece in each of us that has been decimated forever. We will never recover what we have lost.
I look down upon this planet, and I wonder why we try.
It is evident by now that we have lost the capacity for peace. War follows in our wake. We came to retrieve the AllSpark, which has long since been lost, and we are still here. All that came of attempting to revive our planet was the relocation of the war from our planet of death to this planet of life. There is so much life on this planet. All of it we have sworn to protect. This is the promise we have made to them. But the promise would not need to have been made if we had never co
