New poems: Deciding to shelve tattoos for now, getting busy, pondering the universe

8-21-2011 — So Long For Now, Ink!

So Long For Now, Ink!
My flirtation with you
Was brief but acute.
I considered
On my arms,
My inner forearm,
Even on my back,
But two questions stopped me cold.
Is it really me?
Is it a reflection of me?
To both, no.
Instead, I will consider rings on my fingers.
They can be removed.
Easily.
Often.

8-25-2011 — Time to Get Busy

Time to get busy
Off my butt
Idleness, the Devil’s Workshop.
I was 18 yesterday
Am 38 now.
Double my life
And I’ll be 76
If I’m still alive.
Life is a short, brief, wispy vapor
So much to do
So little time
No more mourning
Self-pity sucks
I remember that Des’ree song:
You gotta be…

9-3-2011 — Life, World, Universe

Life, the world, the universe
An endless, ever-changing
Matrix of information
To know it all
Frustratingly impossible
Today’s knowledge
Tomorrow’s relic of non-sense.
