Miscellaneous short poems
 
Mitchell's paradox
 
Everything is

uncertain.

Even this.

 
Sliced Bread
 
Anytime now happiness

will come free with sliced bread.

But will happiness be worth having

when everyone has it?

 
13 Syllables On Humility
 
Search out the sea

and recall you are only a man.

 
One Stray Limerick
 
An alien from far beyond Saturn

said. 'What's all this fuss about pattern?

From up at this height

there's no finer sight

than a close up of downtown Manhattan.'

 
One Stray Assymetric Couplet
 
Among the trees

the wind has built a pyramid of leaves.
