Name Me…

May I have your help, please,

in naming my blog…?

Because if I buy this domain,

kayfucius.com

Seems nowhere nearly

as effectual

as maybe kayfuciusthe.blog

Or kayfucius.world.

I should probably just

keep it simple…

But I never did

figure that part out.

Help me, please;

This time,

My indecisions

Are not so desirable

as annoying.

Used-Tos (Next Episode)

I have some trouble

telling people all my “used-tos,”

It leads down this rabbit hole

of more things

I used to do, think, be, say, see.

And it seems like

I have issues,

but honestly, they’re more like

Editions…

every one more distinct than its predecessor,

and each

a different minefield

to navigate.

I used to fear judgment,

But now,

I wait patiently

for the next episode;

Life is an unending season.

Just Before Sunrise

I decided not to meditate this morning.

Instead, I sat outside breathing the crisp, cool, autumn air

and watched the dawn paint the sky with its cotton candy colors

while the leftover silvery beams of the moon’s light

began to dampen and fade to wisps

becoming the shimmering dew on the grass, the sparkling diamond droplets on the spiders’ silky webs,

And the sleepy mistiness of the early day that

always comes just before sunrise.

Rough Draft

I love all the
squiggles, scratches,
scrawls, scribbles
carets and paragraph marks
unexpected brackets, write-overs, and random
annotations
that swirl boldly through
most of my handwritten work.

They all highlight mistakes,
yet also remind
how quickly the mind
moves
to make sense of
all its random, unordered chaos
and then
create art
from it.

Inspiration tames madness;

I keep all my rough drafts.
