There was nothing to say

but she said it anyway.

Some of us laughed

‘cos it’s funny.

Some of us didn’t

‘cos it isn’t.

It’s ok.

mountains move

to my side then pass

I arrived in Salt Lake City this evening for the American Atheists conference. The mountains here are gorgeous, I thought of this while riding to the hotel.



cold seeps into every space

shadow creeps across the face

yet darkness doesn’t cover all

but presents to us a reddened thrall



To Kill a Mockingbird


To Kill a Mockingbird

It had taken a long time to get here,

his whole damn life in fact


He said he’d do it differently

if he had to do it again


He had a reputation for speaking his mind,

maybe I shouldn’t have asked


I don’t know though, if he went back

He would still be Him


The Arcanum by Janet Gleeson
