The Fox

The Fox

The Fox

I knew you from a cub
Brown eyed and shaggy of mane
Your cunning a protective shield
Against a world intent to snare you.

You played me songs and melodies
Smoky lyrics of trascendence
Of hope and love a better life
Pains ballad amongst the detritus.

You brought me life
In words and sounds
A brothers love, deep in bond
Stretched across the ocean.

I heard today that you were gone
Caught by trap, Life’s essence flowed
No more to fight for place or hope
My fox will forever roam free.

Written in October 2019 on the news of the tragic murder of my good friend Noel in Los Angeles.

Griefs Embrace

Griefs Embrace

How do you break free from it?
When chains do nout but hold you
Shackled arms and legs
Unable to run or raise fist

These ropes restrain my spirit
Earth bound, a comfort for the worm
and beetle.
How do you sore into skies of azure,
When imprisoned by griefs embrace?
