To a friend
Who is gone
    … forever
There is pain in our hearts
Are the knife which kills
Our innocence
To never taste your lips
To never see your eyes

S.D. Parsons spends the majority of his time traveling the world in search of the perfect cappuccino. A Zen Buddhist at heart, he feels the downfall of all Western Civilization can be traced directly to man's inability to accept his neighbor's God. He says: "We stand on the cusp of great understanding, but our ignorance blinds us, keeps us from seeing the miracles unfolding right before our eyes."
