don’t lend your senses to illusion

lest your soul desires to serve its institution

guide to the gods

as long as you exist

they too, inside you, reside

just search within

and receive the light

injustice is the lowest law

governing man

and so he must know

only he has power to see it end

swarms drop like fumigated pests

but no one moans for those nameless…


and although some may make for a few cases

most are just reports that we ignore

because apart from them making little or no sense

we’ve also since come to accept that is the way it goes

Care Contract

I know you suffer too

all because you care

and your love won’t allow you

to be indifferent

Marvel Mile

I don’t expect you to understand

why I choose to love you at a distance

and although I sometimes wish it were different

I accept and even marvel at the way it turned out

Hut City iii

open your heart

and receive me


I can’t promise glory

or ecstasy


but to its shape

I’ll model art


to the best

of my ability

rather be a slave to desire

than have no flame or fire

This Working Thing ii

when you feel helpless


if you feel worthless

work more


you should be happiest

when you work


and what is deemed work?

well, that which steers your spirit,

makes your heart beat,

your mind tick,

your body feel

and even heal
