Overhead [CDB vs. COL] (Poem)

(Cost of doing business vs. cost of living)

To accept AI writs    
To read AI writs        
Two considerations
Rethink situation

Derivative trials
Endless assessments  
Anomalies occur, bore into
Being: nothing—likened to AI

Persist unduped whose need
Simply non-writer
non-doer, non-payer
Remuneration; o, AI writs

Notorious drill, endured still
Regurgitated originality
Fragments collated
Overhead extraction

Pictures Do Last Longer (Poem)

Nice you called today; might I remain!
This frame of existence, photographed would look
Like one of those images seen e’ry day
One of those quite friendly, intimate displays

If I could, I’d file it away in a book
Left on a tabletop, cornered in the nook

Over the Town (Poem)

Over the town, let’s sail on thin blue air
Enthused by love’s everlasting lift
An unknown stretch, gifting us no limits
Sky’s reach, past a red world to ether space

Clarity of rarest happenstance floats    
Possibles to surface – our salvation
Feeling limitless like synchrony in
Correlation to human connection  

Let’s outdo the common expectation
Gleaned of involvements never expected
Let’s swim, soar, dive, and float – everything we’ll
Need for green growth in worlds of challenges

Let’s reach, let’s rise, cultivate our lives as
Only we would. Let’s rise over the town.
