Salad Daze Archive Unit 30 (2005)

 haiku for a black ladybug 

her 4 scarlet gems

herald beauty's dawn so shy:

enchanted daughter

Salad Daze Archive Unit 29 (1997)



truth is behind us


we feed its verdict


change is yet ahead


 the themes of its melody

these paths

reveal their pilgrims

others wait

watching & smiling

virtue lives in us


the day of its awakening

Salad Daze Archive Unit 28 (1993)

 song of madness

i'm out of it                i'm inside it

i'm out of it                it's inside me

draw the line             cross the line

erase the line

i'm still alive                i'm still dying

i'm still alive                death am i

the world spins            the world stands still

in the beginning was the word

in the end only hissing rain

as it was it will be again

but all of this will never ever be

is this heaven's own dew

is this bitter dark blood

another utopia                another nightmare

another day                    another daydream

does this wind have a name

does this hour have a colour

we rise singing                we fall screaming

see the moon                   feel the sun

see the earth                   disappear ...

Salad Daze Archive Unit 27 (1994)

 di/agnostic prayer

the sun snuck out at the city

someone smiled 

a flag was put away under lock & key

the last one ever amen
