Otherwise Mute

The ideas we trouble
today become the ghosts
in our machines
tonight. That I judge
you the way you

me is our modern dance
so gravity laden
the ballet has become

extinct. In my wild
dreams about uncovering

empathy with swans,
sea otters, I am
the untroubled one, you
the same who floats
beside me on this channel surface.

  1. Amy, we have enjoyed your writing, We have recently changed our email address to the above address. We have just recently had our first blast of winter. We think of you when reports of terrible blizzard conditions are reported for Minneapolis St. Paul. What a great show at the Southgate house. You can check out my musings with the crick gypsies,at myspace.com/the crickgypsies.Hope this finds you in good health and spirits. Let us all live in this moment… Dan

      • Hi Dan and Amy. What a lovely surprise to hear from you. Yes, I still think about that show at the Southgate. I’ve really never been to a bad Jay show. Great to meet you two as well. I’ll have to check out your group. Yes, we had quite the storm–17 + inches of snow and horrible sub-zero temps all before winter is officially here. And the domed roof of our football stadium collapsed from the weight of the snow. Gotta love Minnesota. ; )
