Gestalt

Grasping convolutions anything will do really corrugated steel rictus pulls at corners a shadow play in ritual dusk down another glass of slow derision at the nearest watering hole wondering how and why I am unholy reconcile I’m alone with the pictures we both inhabit I could not hold the fire so now I choke on smoke and bathe in ashes my breath stinks of rebellion my words are heavy and low, lo unto tomorrow riveting the compunction to depart the now the how and when of it matter little respond to extinguish the embers of my love, of your … Continue reading Gestalt

Middle of Now/here

We’re in the middle of my mind everywhere I look all these people talk talk talk talk talkin aware of the noise but deaf to the beat the feeble din bounces around this hole I’m stranded in in a state of waiting to begin whisper at the yelling syllables weighed down on my tongue like a sun the picture fills the black with non sequitur evoking rituals a candle struggles to illuminate  the middle of my mind repercussions of all the things I can no longer hear the hands of time have wiped away the scenery Alas, and lo, and hark feel the … Continue reading Middle of Now/here

No explanation

So Facebook this I was standing, thinking hating and debating over the latte you made for me if all of the things that bite at you through the night weighting, irritating brought you to the point of critical mass would we expect an explosion or a whimper? Four more times I have sought the answers but only received the pain of unknowing unbinding, unmaking deliverance without choice circumventing creation we fought to give you a voice no remembrance of the sacrifice just here to entice invading your life little words that don’t make sense mete out today’s punishment behind close … Continue reading No explanation

Indelible, the touch of the restless dementia hours of nothing dedicated to the honors we are pleased to abhor in small plaid workings of the horse’s hair shouting mayhem in stocks bonds straining against the drying out of decency we manipulate the ruins just to see what comes out of my madness is beautiful too far gone in this muddy water blues gripping the railing about the digging of my bones pirating another soul  with cash money brothers, am I my brother’s keeper of bees in my bonnet and the tearing away of starlet dancing survivors on tv surviving in … Continue reading Today’s News

Heavy

And it’s all so heavy.  Burden of mine embedded.  It sticks like a low spring evening in Georgia, suffocating, full of old ghosts and drab speech.  There’s cheese-wire cutting through my muscles, fire ants in my bones.  Worms eating my guts, spiders behind my eyes.  Noises so loud it is the earth sundering, no, the collapsing of a star. Heavy.  My heart is on fire and my mind blanketed by winter snow.  I have been crucified but unlike the saviour, I cannot die.  Moving into a half-waking stupor.  I engage in the act of living, but it is a poor … Continue reading Heavy
