Here it is again  Your going Ginormous spans of time and distance  Echo in the gap between us How is it I am not mad with grief and fear? It’s because I was shot The last time you left on a jet plane I was shot to the heart   The meds Your arrival, your joy, your return They still run through me Like the waterfall you stood under Eternal it seemed Did you hear it? Over the age old rush Of hydrogen, oxygen, and gravity? “This is my dau...more

Guerrillas, Freemasons, Rastafarians and Me: 60 days in Central America
