Language Is Always Swirling In My Mind

Language is always swirling in my mind

Concept of creativity begins to protrude 

Coffee poured into lonely & cold crockery 

Enhancing feelings of morning’s solitude 

I feel there’s a fluid density to my dreams

Where it’s not easy for them to dissolve 

Our actions lead us into raw perpetuity

Organically replayed as the earth revolves 

Standing back, removing yourself from here

You find living takes a certain concentration

Happiness requires focus and some effort

But gratitude never achieves complete saturation

Status Is A Peculiar Concept

status is a peculiar concept
to someone who just wants
to lock himself away & write

so save your Park Avenue dollars
for someone interested in
your upward mobility illusions

Home. It Isn’t Some Abstract Concept

Home. It isn’t some abstract concept
It is the loving embrace & happy tears
To return to the only ones who matter
A sigh of relief, time to expel all fear
The safety of my family’s precious arms
Another deployment forevermore sealed
I’m present; allowing us to move forward
& soon enough those pains will be healed

Just A Suburban Housedad

Just a suburban housedad
Toting the kids in a station wagon
There’s no concept of cool left
Listening to Jerry slay the dragon
I’m just trying to live my life
Please keep your drama to your own
High school wasn’t fun the first time
Trust me, that coop’s been flown

In my head, there’s a lil ditty
Feet keep moving even if its not pretty

Oblivious to my surroundings
Because I truly don’t care
My priority is this family
Perfectly content in my own lair
Never apologizing for being me
Many have been justly infuriated
I just smile & nod
Truth is I’m quite understated

In my head, there’s a lil ditty
Feet keep moving even if its not pretty
