Evolve…(version 2)


My sister, Ginger, a psychologist shared in this piece by editing it from her personal experience counseling veterans.

I have rewritten it and want to share it with you today. She also recommended the book at the bottom. I have ordered it myself from Amazon.

If you want to share your reaction to the book or post , feel free to share on this blog.

Skat in the Woods


art by JB Schachner


 Skat in the woods

My mistakes leave skat in the woods:
little turds of guilt
or sometimes elephant skat
where worlds meet
and put me on a
totem of shame
for all to mock.

And then humility rains down
upon my head:
natural hydration for my soul!

the three ring circus hides under the tent


sketches by Walter Koessler


the three ring circus hides under the tent

Foraging picks through the center island
Awkward keeps his eyes down
Put-it-off drops wrappers everywhere

Obsessive wipes the counters to dazzling
Martyr-complex kneels ’til callouses form
the dull light of Guilt never dims

Entertainer pirouettes round the ring
She’s a Performance artist in the buff
electric Pantomime
