Don’t Wear Your Damage As Blame

Don’t wear your damage

As blame

But as a life lived

Too close to the sun

Exhibit your pain like art

Let no two joys be the same

Gene G. McLaughlin 2014

I Want To Be Forgotten

I want to be forgotten

By the suns ever expanding flames

What we’ve wrought torn asunder

All the shames and blames

Existence starting over

Devoid of stifling names

Categorization viewed anew

Analogies linking similars and sames

Nothing is repeated

The systems begin once more

Before wonder is defeated

And things aren’t nameless anymore

Gene G. McLaughlin 2013
