ONE LAST WALK

One last walk
One last kiss.

Memories flutter,
And then lose clarity before fading.

Bright colors disappear
Sounds go mute,
And then, the final train arrives.

Yes, memories come and go
Like dreams –
But it’s all a big fade now –
Night sneaking up on us.

Most people have exited
And the band’s stopped playing –
Apparently, the party’s over.

Yet, after a brief time, surprisingly,
Everything starts repeating itself –
Entire city neighborhoods disappear –
And then reappear with new people, new buildings.

Tell me –
What does this new world want?
Where is it going?
And what, if anything, does it care about
Now?

GOD COMES IN MANY FLAVORS

God comes in many flavors –
Not just vanilla.

God thinks about
Going forward, and then,
In reverse.

New universes appear
And disappear
Like bouquets of light
Thrown up into the night sky.

God has a secret
And makes up a song about it –
But when it’s sung
We can’t hear a thing –
Because we lack a “third ear.”

Nevertheless,
God loves little things
Which is why we’re so cherished
And always invited to the party.

God won’t ever stop making new things –
Nor will we –
But, sometimes, we should take a break
And compare work.
