Firewood

Modern matters
of the midnight mind.
Chill in the air,
lights out time.
Ain’t it funny
being part of a crowd?
You go in.
You go out.

Firewood.
Firewood.

Domino theories.
Four letter words.
Go ahead,
your own terms.
California
clock it ticks.
Chaos theories.
Seeker phase.

Firewood.
Firewood.

Should I stay?
Or should I go?
Add a log?
Stir the coals?

Where you are,
close your eyes.
What you see –
whats that sign?
Palm trees nod.
World slows down.
Give your love a kiss
soon as she’s around.

Firewood.
Firewood.

Giving is
letting go.
Are you leaving
for the other shore?
Outside sources,
let them be.
Concentration.
Gradually.

Firewood.
Firewood.
Embers last ’til the light of dawn.

Firewood.
Firewood.
Embers last ’til the light of dawn.
