Boon of Dandelions 7

Anything done to excess opens the door to more excesses. The spiral downward–slow or fast–can only be arrested with real moderation born of bold honesty. Any Existenz who lies to himself with the con game of “I am NOT an addict…” or who buries his being in the pharmacon of oblivion speeds to a boring certainty. I wish the people I love so very much would not be so boring.

my need to nag
bites at me

silence – a stranger
quiet lips – a rarity

Always already advising
some word for others on the verge,
leaping out, jumping on

discussion turned to admonition

mushrooms once took away
mouth – words – breath

tranquility, laxity
not advisor, not mother


communication as ear
rather than tongue

flowing into this gathering
