No Excuse

deer hunting in our woods
one of many matters I don't
need to have an opinion about
I don't have to justify existing
there's no excuse for any of us
driving using plastic burning gas
pillaging our only living planet
for our comfort and amusement
I won't be here for the future
so why should I care still I do

One Position

yes and why not
is better than no
if this is my way
to structure the
sentence typically
this but also that
I try not without
being negative to
pick one position
and leave it at that

Good Habits

without rushing keep moving do
something constructive
nurture good habits
problems can be solved
more arise
life is a game you lose
meanwhile play

Late Light

is the world less real
if I can't see it clearly
does it blurrily exist
or pale with custom
seasons less thrilling
the umpteenth time
or do I need to sit
in the sun with a pad
by the babbling brook
the prehistoric me
loves running water
dams desert creeks
a river system under
the backyard hedge
and the way brilliance
falls through shallow
rushing liquid crystal
over mossy rocks
shining in late light

Never Me

I am just a speck of stardust
drifting in never-empty space
faintly lit by distant suns
do I lie by pretending to be normal
though creative kind light-hearted cheerful warm
or am I really

even the good like my mother
have mean streaks
the bad like dad more likely good
doing their best
in a complicated situation
the results ineluctably beyond their control

not that there isn't evil
but it's never me if I can help it
realize other people are equally real
remember too
what I didn't actually forget
not doing what I was doing at the time
