Be Real – Have No Fear


“The fear of poetry

is an indication

that we are

cut off from

our own reality.”


― Muriel Rukeyser





unknown future

feelings of angst

things you cannot control





morning frost and fog

year end season transition

winter comes to call




all decked out in a Santa outfit
waiting for the children on my lap to sit
trying to catch the magical holiday spirit
to the myth, the legend,  I am an adherent

please dear God don’t let the babies cry
doesn’t the whole world know I’m not a bad guy
potty stop visitors, my knee is not for peeing
joy everyone, even if it is just for the time being

must I be politically correct
can I allow my motives to be circumspect
can I suggest the reason for the season
will the thought police hang me for treason

Ho Ho Ho  … the Holy spirit has caught me
I accept this world as God wants it to be
do what you must to take care of your business
but we can never forget the meaning of Christmas


. ME and the Boss
