A Mixed Blessing

Git reads me my sins
I pull from ancient repos
Code no man should see

Thunderhead

by Michael Eric Oberlin, August 7th, 2014

Man is a child of father sky and mother sun
Heart a seedling blooming in warmth and light
As nebula looms and thunder wails lamenting
Firmament cries, and spirit weeps also

“The Register”

Loud, droning A flat
Machine screams in agony
Club card rejected

“Promise”

“Promise”, by Michael Eric Oberlin
May 6th, 2013

I promise simple things
To provide what frightens you
To take away your comfort
To remove what you need
To bring you to places
You alone might avoid

I do not wish a reader comfort
For in my heart
I know
The readers read
To leave a duller life behind them
