Miscellaneous short poems
Mitchell's paradox
Everything is


Even this.

On Happiness
Any day now happiness

will come free with sliced bread.

But will happiness be worth having

when everyone has it?

On Humility
Search out the sea

and recall you are only a man.

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.'

A Pyramid of Leaves
Among the trees

the wind has built

a pyramid of leaves.

Three lefts
Two wrongs don't make a right

but, oddly, three lefts do.
