Welcome to The Chronicle of Change

The Chronicle of Change is a collection of poetry written since the 1990s. As most of the poems are in hard copy, I will have to encode them one by one, so bear with me. I will be posting them as I go along.

The dates of posting are not necessarily the dates of creation.

I do not and never will claim that they are good, but if you find value in them, I thank you. You are most welcome to comment. I welcome both praise and criticism.

If for any reason you need to quote, lift excerpts, print, publish, or refer to the poems in any way, I would appreciate a note or an email, an acknowledgment of ownership, and an acknowledgment of the website. Intellectual property rights do apply.

Five Minutes of Ecstasy

Five minutes of ecstasy
flavored jelly dry in my tongue
every breath out the nostrils
euphoria-like smoke in a crystal ball;
discordant notes in my head
playing like Kurosawa's dreams
a bubble of cream
tracing down my throat
into my lungs where smoke
stay afloat.

- written some time in 1999
