First let me say that we are not the type

that this happens to

if there is a list we are not on it

if there are straws

we do not grasp at them

we pluck ourselves up

we gather ourselves together and we don't look back

we are not so much gutsy

as we are stubborn 

and lucky

so fucking lucky

or at least we were

until this brass ring left it's cancerous present

growing invisibly in your body




and we being unfamiliar with the waters of this stream

cannot find the flow

and stumble as we try to find routine

  3. Oh my dear, I don't know who you are talking about, but I'm so sorry. I just saw this disease take away my cousin. I am thinking of you today.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
