Big Lift Ferry Poem F392

Gazelle, machine –
Horse, deer, wind –
Or some other thing –
What do I like my running
To be compared to?
There’s only one thing –
That my running
Truly compares to –
That is the wind –
I run like the wind

Starry Days

May all your nights be starry –
May all your days be bright –
But may they, too, be starry –
As any starry night

Why I Do Things My Way

I often do things my way –
Not some traditional way –
Let’s get that clear right away

Not for the sake of need –
Nor for the sake of show –
Nor originality –
Nor creativity

But because it works well –
And because it works better –
Than conventional ways –
For me

Automatic Email Sign Offs

How sincere could most –
Yours sincerely be?
How authentic could most –
Kind regards be?
How genuine could most –
All the best be?

If you don’t mean it –
Then don’t write it –
Cause folks won’t take it –
The way you meant it –
And might judge you for it –
Or best, disregard it

Seriously yours,
Minh

My Dominant Mind and Bratty Heart

My Mind is the Dom of my Heart,
But my Heart, it is a brat!
It always fights back,
When kept from this or that.

It knows my Mind is well intended,
But it doesn’t like to submit,
Even when it knows,
What is really good for it.

They do not like living together,
But they cannot live apart.
Always at odds with each other,
And perfecting the make up art.

But what should happen,
Should I let them switch?
Once in a while let my Heart,
Become Mistress Bitch?

Let it tell my Mind fuck you!
Live for the moment and play!
Worry about tomorrow, tomorrow,
And carpe diem today!

Well, let me tell you what happens…
My Mind may come for the ride,
But at the first sign of trouble,
It beats the Heart to the other side.

It chastises my Heart in the process,
Berates it, degrades it,
Makes sure it knows who’s in charge,
And warns never try to change it.

And my Heart, it learns,
It knows my Mind knows what’s best,
It also knows my Mind, like a good Dom,
Looks out for its best interests.

Yet, my Heart is a poor learner here,
It soon forgets and gets tempted again.
It may be dumb or weak,
Or just secretly enjoys a little pain…

Once, every now and then,
Again, and again, and again.
