Checkpoint: Khyber Pass

on a stone wall
gekkos, quick, clever. . .
barbed legs,
land-locked tentacles,
but quick


over there
left from the last invasion

this, too, ends
when legs
fall off
who knows when

bury the dead
more than earth
is disturbed
when it's been turned

...............One Black Day

...............Shock strikes me, makes me cold
...............feel so old
...............blood like ice
...............mind in vice
...............hear the news
...............they will choose
...............the enemy
...............over me, over me!
...............all I did. still the kids
...............cut me down
...............choose that clown
...............and his wife
...............their fine life
...............I’m no good
...............they say I should
...............be like him.
...............what? I should be
...............such as he?
...............leave on a whim?
...............stay away?
...............then blame me?
...............yet here I was
...............with both of thee!
...............one black day, maybe three.
