“When Tuesdays Are Saturday”

"When Tuesdays Are Saturday"

Sometimes it locks in place
Like a pod taken you to space

2am headlights turning on now
Mountain fire too high to drown

Cold and wet keep moving on
'Til the breaking light of dawn

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday 😎🌹

This river could swallow our whole crew
Better build ourselves a good canoe

Gotta get out sometime and head west
Yet not quite influenced it's really best

Looking to cash in on a promise made
Keep moving along so we all get paid

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday 😎🌹

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday 😎🌹

And for a Tuesday night
It sure feels like a Saturday 😎🌹

Escape Velocity _ new 2021 poem

Inspired poem while reading @michiokaku's The God Equation. Saturday & Sunday I voraciously read up to page 122. It's a great read at a good time. It's not only physics but also a form of sociological insight. @Morning_Joe @MSNBC @nytimes @NewYorker @latimes @WIRED @physorg_com

March 2019 (the last of Parker Bean the best Lhasa Apso ever)

This time of year
Beginning March
Snow reflecting a muted sun
On wintertime's hard ground
Earth frozen and spinning
Tilting for spring to start
This time of year has a sound
A morning song chirping along
Everything alive is stirring
Insides churning and yearning
Here comes flowers bursting through
As the cabin door lets in early sunlight
It smells like melting snow and pine
Decayed leaves and nor'easter winds
Coffee shrugging off the veil of night

Here I Stand _ new poem January 2021

Again I'm waiting for spring so I can see

Pink & white blossoms on apple trees

Standing in the pouring rain

Down over my back feeling no pain

It's not God who put fear in you

I fought something to help us thru

Can't you imagine what's in their head

Dreaming they're talking with the dead

When I'm beside you I don't want to say goodbye

That's not in the plan

So here I am - hello

An average man - I know

Here I stand

Nashville Tennessee _ new December poem 2019
I used to believe in justice 
And how things outta be
Then I saw a person hanging from a tree 
I couldn’t believe they called this place free 
That’s when I moved to Nashville Tennessee 
You’re grown enough to know what’s wrong
Feel the existential truth in this here song 
It’s a coming around the bend 
It’s your destiny - just hit send 
Like a stormy day when the sun comes out
Listening to music that makes you shout 
There isn’t time for you to be fuss’n about 
Pack your things & tune your strings to the city 
There ain’t a place like Nashville Tennessee 
Black, brown, red, yellow, white you may be 
There ain’t a better city to be feeling free 
You’re grown enough to know what’s wrong
Feel the existential truth in this here song 
It’s a coming around the bend 
It’s your destiny - just hit send 
Like a stormy day when the sun comes out
Listening to music that makes you shout 
Come play with me in Nashville Tennessee

My Parker Bean _ poem


My Parker Bean‬
‪I have memories of you‬
‪And I have pictures too‬
‪I haven’t pulled out all the old video ‬
‪I wouldn’t be able to get up and go‬
‪And I know I’d go down a rabbit hole ‬
‪So I am grateful you’re in my dreams ‬
‪You’re proof life is better than it seems ‬

"Starlight" _ new poetry for Labor Day Weekend 2019


John Conte San Francisco 1997 Russian Hill Jack Kerouac House


“Starlight”
That’s an impressive file
It reads like a vowel 
I vowel to love you.
I vowel to love the Earth.
I know what it’s worth.
It’s meant to be free.
The magnetic pull of the tides
It’s in your eyes
As they roll back
Starlight stirs 
The fire inside
