Musicians will know

Musicians will know
gear acquisition syndrome
it plagues me lately 

Want to know something?

Want to know something?
Cheeseburger-flavoured spring rolls
it's weird that they're real 

Observe and reflect

Observe and reflect
acknowledging my response
remaining detached

If you can’t be free

If you can’t be free
withdraw back into shadow
be a mystery

Comfort surrounds me

Comfort surrounds me
a life filled with abundance
domesticated 

On these thoughtless days

On these thoughtless days
can I please excuse myself
while prose lies elsewhere

I cooked hamburgers

I cooked hamburgers
that path has least resistance
my kids are happy

Now he's found a mate

Now he's found a mate
after weeks of melodies
this blackbird sings less
