bending low

  bending low it’s all the thoughts I cannot express talking slow the words you are forming have no meaning there’s no weight speaking in zero gravity undertow all of the times we lost ourselves in yesterday late nights of no tomorrow summer kissing and bottled lightning sweet nothings and keg parties mushrooms and marijuana dust under my fingernails smelling of mesquite and bourbon when did we die? I am not sure I can quite remember the exact day It may have something to do with what you’re trying to say waiting for it now bending low, gravel pressing through … Continue reading bending low

Hunting Huntress Hunted

Wolves winding into wind wanting wild wants Introductions precede the calamity Moving away from my ancestral haunts a discovered lone path inspiring temerity I wandered into your wood a prize beyond measure the chase was understood wise to your distance by your steaming breath your shine may have struck me dumb and deaf with my one good eye I hunt you boldly my body may stumble blindly but my shadow stalks slowly By the rise of the sun you will be mine with the barrel of my gun I will taste of your wine I know you think that you … Continue reading Hunting Huntress Hunted

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?

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
