I Thin Place
II Dung Heap
III Death Jumps Around Me

As I have said before, I usually do not read poetry, but these three poems were written by a friend of mine, so I read them and really liked them. They spoke to me because the friend was a monk in a monastery similar to mine. Some of the themes might sound morbid, but they really aren't they are just realistic. I asked him if I could set them to music, so here they are. The friend is no longer a monk: he is married and living in the United Kingdom. Things change. I do thank him for the bicycle trip across Wisconsin we took together while he was still a monk, and for the poems.

I also thank John Webber for typesetting all my manuscripts and making them available to the public. Thanks also to Caroline Webber for allowing me to give John so much work.
