who took the time to take
all the little pieces of me
I left rest for all prosperity
a moment or two ago
while I saw to other things
may it sever them well as well
forty thieves and nights
have I endured this life time line
as all I had I gave away
keeping what I didn't find
starting a new story of my life.

once upon a time
I was happlily ever before
then a year of year came and went
so now in winter so now reseeding
shoots shoot stubbornly out
of all hidden corners i keep things
or the holes I haven't filled
pushing in their loose rooty ways
searching finding spring again
oh oh well and there and then again
there's always hope isn't there?

the coyotes call
outside my open window
looking for things they take
just being beings they are
can prey blame predator
in their quarry deep games
throwing stones on stones
loose carins to mark graves
that fed children of jackals
so they could rise up
and so take their own

I find I cannot cry
for the page is blank
constant companions gone
even the mirror deserts me
when I look back for traces
of whatever came before
so on and so on to you
the new dog year comes
bringing soggy papers in its mouth
I am still cleaning up
from that damn monkey
who took it all away
