Salad Daze Archive Unit 34 (2005)

caliban's blues 


all of these days

eating me raw

flaw by bloody flaw

win lose or draw


all these centuries

burning me away

rend peel & flay

the devil i say


none of these failures

shall so much as slow me down

for i'm such a perfect clown

i'll dance until i drown 

Salad Daze Archive Unit 33 (2005)

the rise & fall of us all 


history is a fickle bitch

she loves to pull a bait-&-switch

in the smoking rubble we're sure we've got her

as we race to the next farce even hotter


history is a crazy dame

she shuns the meek yet strangles fame

as we march to triumph & destiny's seal

she giggles - & drops a new banana peel

Salad Daze Archive Unit 32 (2001)


My eyes are wet but I will not weep

This is a little blessing for you to keep

& when you are wishing you could be brave

Your heart can renew this gift I gave

requiem for Pat Lowther 


circa 1984

i read your words

& i am still

scared to again



are still so good

that i am

going to anyway
