the story

they like that story
like the telling

how your dad was
when you were two

how my dad left
the night
I was born


they like that story
like the telling

but we know...
we connect
     outside the story

for Nilame  - one of the saints out on the path


  1. You have captured that fascination for the sensational, and the real truth behind it. We need quash the titillation we feel. I think I blame t.v. for that.

  2. Yes, the true connections are outside the story. Good one, Ollie.

  3. But it's all part of a bigger story, great to see you back!

  4. They won't ever really go away, those links to the past.

  5. The monk returns? My journey is just beginning,

    I like this. Scattered. But enough to puzzle something of the reader's own.

    Send my regards to Nilame and all the saints.

  6. I've been reading through a lot of your poems since it's my first time here. This one really spoke to me. We're all looking for connections, but some are looking for salvation in a shared connection. So many need to learn that looking for others to save us is futile. There is only one Savior.
