grady’s haiku

a twisted twig i

am not worthy of your cross

Rabbi gather me

body parts

for a wild Irish boy

tempest in your name

wild love ripples through my soul

tease me rowdy wind


chaos in our blood

sunrise joins our hungry mouths

zen entwines our flesh

progress rethunk

sun sets by the park

ducks whose proud necks extend high

fought the urban wars

angels tan too

the angels orange

in their glow today appear

super strange to me

HAMP, unplugged

Photo mbrazfield

last night hope shone once

her dreams of home laid to waste

unlucky salt dash

*HAMP= The Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) is a government program introduced in 2009 to respond to the subprime mortgage crisis. (Wikipedia)

fast lane mantra

decrease the speed wild

child of the streets the Queen begs

don’t rush life away

your LA spirit

girl troubadour of the night

rock hard and steady

Hollywood sign up

ahead but it tells you to

stop and see yourself
