My current trend in writing is to treat it like bits of code. Debugging as time goes on (fixing spelling/grammarish issues).

Most of these poems will rest the way they are written, but given time and interest many will see a patches or 2 before it is over.


bluffs and beaches

She stood into the sun
  as the sea shone
  at the She shore
stood by staring
into the sushi waves
rolling blue, white
white and blue
  sky & see
she schmels so sweet
it seems

He stood facing west
while the cars whizzed by
looking out across the criss cross
Of the power lines,
L car lines
the phone lines
one dollar
and some Pennies
troll toll waiting for
the rattling toy trains

dropped her heal down
toe first then
tip top
she rolled back
down the bluff
thinking shit,
  'this isn’t life
  as it was intended
  but it ain’t all that bad'

Stood by himself in
shaded by the 400 floored
Jutting his jaw's bone
looking for signs
of the sun
or a trail to follow

ships drift
fish flippantly ignore
algae plumes and explodes
pavement cracks grow
all the little while
hes and shes
in their on/off life
spend hours
on speeding buses
on beaches drifting
on waves grinning
breathing the lye
of it all
