"I write it all down as well as I can"

A Wink and a Kiss


It has been said my poetry has range

That it is high and low and in-between

Because I have lived much and seen such change

Now I can share with you what I have seen

Beautiful horrible sacred profane

Every breath and heartbeat day and night

All of it valid none of it in vain

All of it was fate and all of it right


I write it all down as well as I can

That which was and is and maybe could be

Alienation and absurdity

The life and love and death of you and me

Reflected by one lost and lonely man

In obsessive rhyme at the edge of time


I wonder just as you might wonder why

I go to this trouble only to die

But once I knew I wanted to live true

I felt called to write these things down for you

Who read this since I thought you might need this

My blood my blessing a wink and a kiss
