Poem By Michael Norton

I think I’ll go home but where is that?
When your heart is nothing less then a trap,
And your feelings orbit somewhere out in space.
And your mind still lingers on that simple question of faith.

I think I’ll go south, where the birds do fly,
Under a large fan palm, my thoughts will lie,
My heart will thicken as my mind does roam,
That lingering question of the nature of my home.

I think I’ll go home tonight,
If I can find that lighthouse light,
I’ll follow that silvery saving beam,
As it leads me to a summer’s stream.

If home is where the heart is,
I’ll guess I’ll just go north,
Into the cold, mountain air,
Though that air is rather coarse.

I think I’ll go home, wherever that might be.
I’ll look inside my mind and I will hopefully see,
But my spinning thoughts block the view,
Isn’t that always the case?
With his noble experiment,
Called the human race?

Confessions Of A Subway Rider

Little man in a downtown station,
Reaching for a ticket stub,
Walks through the stile,
But his coat gets stuck in the gears.

Life In A Glass Box

Life in a glass box,
Is wiser lived in solitude,
Take it from a man, who knows,
The depths of which you fall.

The Appearance Of A Line

I’m looking for a villain
Someone close enough, so that I can end my problems
Everything is getting hazy,
Lines appear that were never here before

The People That I Know Or The Story Of The Find

I took a walk
A single sentence with a subject and verb
I took a walk
Though the action of the subject is absurd

Melting Dreams To Feed The Daytime

I’ll give everything passing thing I see,
A silly name that about you and me.
And even when I sleep at night,
I’ll have to hold my eyes to stop the light
