Hideaway

A hazy mist Rich with opium and jasmine Filters the light Of scented candles That flicker and play On your shadow That sways and rolls To paint the naked walls Of my modest […]

Here Now Not in a way defined by philosophy memorized or recited Not through some blind faith in something someone else somewhere said I’ve forgotten all I’ve read Left behind […]

Tuesday
