Life seems to get richer and more layered as I move slower and see more. Is identity more than what we do in public?

Wake Up Call
Quickly the sun rewrites
  The dawning sky
The moon still tightropes
  The western cliff faces.
Stretching and kicking
  Away the darkness,
I accidentally nudge                     
  The cat off the bed.                    frosty: "a kitty 'nudged' 
                                             off the bed?"

                                                               kitty extra treats 
                                                               (and a belly rub)"                       

coulda, woulda, shoulda              sunset over the sea - 
   ringa, dinga, clinga                 my moving boxes
         la madré                       stacked like a fortress

her words
drift into the clouds                              
"never again"

                                         frequent wilderness visits

listening for passing ghosts

                                             shadowy old spirits
                                           quietly moving again

Feeling a Restlessness on my Face

                               the horizon measures nothing
                               but the chance to go over it

                               and this where the feeling
                               begins to tremble on my chin

                               spreading quickly to features
                               other people call mine

                               which slip away while everyone
                               is looking at the horizon

                               wondering if what they know
                               is ever true

                                            again, carl mayfield from rio rancho

ass't ed's frosty and tama, insisting "and our trembling chins 
need a treat or three!"

sounds just about right, let's all go have our treats. . .

see you in a moment
