Just One Person


“The purpose of poetry is to remind us

how difficult it is to remain

just one person,

for our house is open,

there are no keys in the doors,

and invisible guests come in and out

at will.”


~ Czesław Miłosz





my mother

and my father

come into my mind





past influences

people, places, images

nature of the mind




the only constant is change


he became a she

which way was he born

does the soul have to agree

is it incest or porn


was it nature

or was it nurture

which organ becomes the larger

or can we call it a merger


is it all about the dress

is the name change required

is the limp wrist an excess

should the effort be admired


Oy gevalt ! now the bathroom is in question

is there a law to be made about self expression


ME and the Boss



our apologies to the Shakespearian sonnet . . .
