A Divine Sign
Resting in a hot bath I had an unholy vision Of an olive tree. Its virginal pit
A banter in my backyard
A banter in my backyard I spoke to the butterfly telling her I saw a lizard in the middle
A Moment of Aloness
Transformed into a moment of loneliness There was this single bud waiting to open
A Nuclear Poem
I did not pass on the other side yet. God is not ready for me. I am still building the nose of the puppet. Everything is fine & dandy on my side.

A 1949 Summer Hallucination
In the center of the Atlas Mountains A boy of 9-and-half years Squirms in an army cot In the middle of a windowless room.
A Contemporary Critique about Art
I'm troubled by the suggestive complexity of Distinctive formal juxtapositions in this artwork. Its disjunctive perturbations & eloquence make it Difficult to consciously enter this chef d’oeuvre in

A Love Letter
I write words and listen to
sounds from Persia.
There’s a party next door
and when the exotic music stops
so do my words.
They fall from pages,
shatter and split into
In effect each letter
on the ground
forms collages varied as the dresses
of the women over the fence.
Today is a special Babylonian day.
One of tying blades of grass together.
With each tie one makes a wish.
I tie one knot.
You and I.
