for Liz


beaming in all directions

attracting us all


waking even the sleepiest

among us


accommodating each wandering soul

serving up her own brand of solace


a knowing feeds her

she sips it in…delighting in the sweetness


her smile is replicated

we see it everywhere


like dominoes rising to meet me

a counter experience


a constant rising

unique to this woman


a love with no end















rushed myself



i insisted

i dragged you

i saw the missing pieces

i insisted


take your ring off


take your ring off

contracts are signed


i see

i feel

i knew

i know


fools rush in

no longer

am i

in a hurry


road signs

there to remind me

slow me down

there are no mistakes



it’s a funny thing

now i know

that i knew
