playing with words


i wonder

where does creation end

and destruction begin

in the corruption of ideas


when does the gift of words

cross the line

from insightful

to incite-ful


is it when ste-wards of any gift

become concerned about re-wards

that consumption begins its reign




to pre-serve

we must put the needs of all before

the lusts of one

lest we risk the danger of serv-itude


for when progression is led

by the hand of aggression

transgression always follows


and i believe we are here to

complete the process of creation

not to merely deplete its procreation


so is it dominion

or communion which we choose


a fort-ress for our com-fort

or bridges between men

an abridgement

of indifference to differences


we can choose to make

cash from chaos

leaving out the circle

which connects us all




the same circle

which is removed from love

when “i” takes its place

allowing the mirror image

of evil to live


or we can choose to love

with passion

and compassion


to bless this disarray of life

and resolve this dissonant array

with an harmonious chord


for even anarchy

can be transformed

somehow to harmony

when we unravel the “ache” of separateness

to spin a yarn of home
