Just One? Revolutionary Blogging Poem

October 25, 2012

When did “Just one?”
become
a question
setting us numb?
and causing indigestion
when asked,
as aspersions are cast
at mealtime?

Couldn’t it be
just as easily
a statement
that meant:
“Oh, just one!”
as in good?
Like Solomon,
so understood?

Or Just as you are inside,
validated,
with nothing to hide?
Openly justified?

So instead of feeling duress
at mealtime,
avoid that stress:
Think of “Just one?” as sublime,
and joyfully answer “I am! Yes!”

Just, By Herself: Romantic Blogging Poem

April 26, 2011

She got the car door
by herself;
got out
by herself;
got in
by herself;
drove home
by herself;
sang “I am a Rock”
by herself;
went in
by herself;
entered her room
by herself;
went to bed
by herself;
dreamed
by herself;
awoke alone
by herself.

Being just herself,
she is
by herself
justly.

Is It a Small Ask of God?: a Revolutionary ConTEXTing Poem

June 9, 2009

“I just wanna/
thank U/
recognize/
say/
feel/
let U know/
ask…”/
Why is it just,/
these things we ask/
thank/
recognize from?/
Is it just,/
merely,/
only?/
Or much more?
