Bride

Constantly stoned But I’m copper tone Stalk into Sioux Falls my Sue fell down for nothing she gets drawn into the pavement my lovely chalk outline bride Her touch is cold But oh, that smile Enterprising reprisals Eschew the formalities Smokey dawn horizon And the starry night behind We’ve been running For a good long while Capsize cornerstones Even in the basement Erasure, closure, suture Spite I find that time will Kill us all slowly Like salt melting in lime We speak of the fallen And the keys to all of the doors She never says much But, sure, I … Continue reading Bride

Barbados

I went seeking the Father and found Barbados island sands and ocean mists cleansing the need for salvation the calm killing me the balmy melancholy and the dogs barking in the deep evening skies my Kismet skewed by drowsiness a longing for the rivers and mountains of home my spirit wanes and flows like the tides leaving memories in thousands of broken seashells along the shores of my mind keen insights into the lost times of the past… her. Even though you were gone I tried to build a better world, as you would have I took a ship to … Continue reading Barbados

Dum

cogito ergo, dumb and a thermonuclear son soak up those rays with my Ray-ban smile so many ways and many of them vile I decompose the organics of the argument before it has begun ki-ki-ki-kill it all with my American manufacturing and Eastern philosophy I remember when we learned that to the victor go the spoils and the history gets changed I will just edit those lessons to fit today’s face North, South, East, West all of the cardinal directions have seen slavery and the sun stop shining the light on the roaches and they will stop scurrying into the … Continue reading Dum

The Emergence Sea

Out on the Emergence Sea so many days of sailing prevailing winds and storms set a course for me I found my way to this place so long ago amid the wreckage and ghosts of the mighty I saw a man upon the shore and I wondered what calamity had left him broken on the sand that is the way of the sea many lost and lonely victims emerging from the waters why so many losses? no longer to see or sing or feel or be I help those I can but there are no easy answers and my hands … Continue reading The Emergence Sea

Human

configuring the distance of an instance in an instant metaphysical caresses coalesce into guesses and the current currently stresses the truth of the veracity of the false because causes are causing such waves I am afraid to be capsized by the fears that are made the best guess is to find some comfort in what love is around you and surrounds you with the feelings of safety and to encourage those feelings too, in those who find themselves in two Sense is sensing the insistence that all these persisting notions are just temporary commotions I have to believe that relief … Continue reading Human
