D-CODE

The Falling Thoughts

Come and sit by my side and lets D-cide

How to prevent ourselves from being D-prived

I am your groom and you are my bride

Let’s D-sign our future and and never Resign

Together we will incline and D-cline

Let’s talk about the facts and find our D-facts

All the spyware and viruses

Let’s D-bug and D-tact

Lets make our love D-light and D-cent

Unique rare and D-frent

Let me hear the D-tails

Your Dreams, D-mands and
D-sires

Everything you have got, I do admire

Let’s build the fence for our D-fence

Together we will offend and D-fend

Our love will never D-cend

From the B-gining to D-end

HOT CAR CLEANER

By the Mighty Mumford

HOT CAR CLEANER

Men don’t like to quit,

But boy, he surely reached it…

It was too hot

His legs were shot,

He’d done less than half of it!

Clearing out the car

Only so far…

MOXIE soda–

One sip it’s over–

He needed a cool water jar.

Disposal in three bags,

Arrayed on his cart (no tags)…

Making slow work,

Hardly a perk,

No shade nearby to bag!

He worked as long as he could,

Not quite as long as would…

As he wearily clopped

Was it too soon he stopped?

The whole of him didn’t feel good.

–Jonathan Caswell,

You Were Gone Too Soon

Dreamspinner Extraordinaire

image

You were gone too soon
Like a fleeting kiss of summer
When trees start to bloon
And there are flowers everywhere
You gifted us a moment
Of pure bliss and innocence

You were gone too soon
And with you a piece of our heart
How can we wake up in the morning
Knowing that you never will?
How can we look at the sunrise
Without remembering your smile?

You were gone too soon
A finality our tears cannot undo
Alone yet undaunted, you ventured
Into the murky unknown
Where no living mortals have ever treaded
A world beyond our grasp

Do you know we love you so?
And now we will miss you
Everyday. Every single day.
But we will find comfort in knowing
That when we search the night sky
You are already one of the dazzling stars

Note: I wrote this for my little cousin who passed away…

Freedom is an Open Road

roamwildandfree

Freedom is an Open Road

Written by my brother, Bobby Birkhofer, as a gift for my 22nd birthday

If you would like to share his work, please give credit to the amazing literary artist that he is!

As I sat upon a mountainside with all the world before me

I observed the sun high in the sky running its daily course

And I thought to myself ‘isn’t this the way things are supposed to be?’

And the answer came easily without any doubt, without remorse

All the money the world couldn’t buy a bluer sky than this

Nothing could warm my heart more than the sweet Wyoming sun

No worldly possessions could ever bring more happiness

Than the satisfaction I feel here when every day is done

So if I ever leave this country,

I’m sure it’s blue skies and western wind will always call me home

And I will…

Moment of Truth

DoubleU = W

I’ve watched you watch

yourself for hours now

moment of truth:

that reflection isn’t

going to change

unless you do

I’ve watched you tear

down all that you are

moment of truth:

if your mind has

become a wasteland

it’s up to you to change it

I’ve watched you squeeze

into the victim’s clothing

moment of truth:

you are not oppressed

and are only a victim

of your own mind

.

come to terms with

some simple truths:

you are not perfect

life is not perfect

they’re not out to get you

and life is not pointing

both barrels at you
