Truth and Lies


          There are only two things.Truth and lies. Truth is indivisible, hence it cannot recognize itself ; anyone who wants to recognize it has to be a lie.

I Woke





















                                        I woke during the night
                                        and she was gone
                                        Switching on the light
                                        I looked at my watch
                                        It was shortly after 3pm

I Drove on .......


       I drove on to the Oxnard cutoff and turned back along the ocean. The big eight-wheelers and sixteen-wheelers were streaming north, all hung over with orange lights. On the right the great fat solid Pacific trudging into shore like a scrub woman going home. No moon, no fuss, hardly a sound of the surf.
