Promethean

I’m cold as rain Pain is my home this sound of Armageddon grey tremors abound feeling for some meaning as we watch eclipse Pain is my home sun is in the sky there is a roof over my head and a tomb in which I lie It drips icicles of fire into my veins and I lay upon a pyre breathe in my smoking remains Pain is my home hither it comes, tearing me down I feel it again recourse in your gaze we acquiesce to fear and what’s to be highlands awash with our regrets weather comes crashing in … Continue reading Promethean

New Year-Revisited

I do not live last day of the year it is like a little death rough brush, burlesque settles in my bones old spectre dropping dreams in spite of my screaming I do not like the end of the year it’s too heavy, flaunting the blues in cursive graffiti on my center that don’t come off nether wind crawling outside the view is the same one as last year I fear, my dear, my tears do not want the savage drop-down slap-back kissing strangers the champagne wet dream on my face and chest recall the last to fall uptown diamond … Continue reading New Year-Revisited

Burden

broken and discordant with a fistful of fears will the fabric of the noose begin to unravel before all of the air is crushed from us? Silence is on the ballot to the union twist our intentions a little further the wind tends to murmur little secrets that caress your mind but are never truly comprehended antiquated and rusted the tools in the barn forgotten the crops are dead the fields are dust and still we pray for rain focus on the sun and hope we don’t burn I would carry your burden if I wasn’t dragging mine Continue reading Burden

Wisdom Tainted

Thus it holds true; a steady course nautilus man-made percussion of actions manipulate dense framework as starving bird stares through the window educational tour of the laughing matter Would like to return home wherever it may be, the road is long and hard so whisper to me feel the sorrow I wish I knew how to grieve without a need to borrow we decay anyway the soulful approaches whimper in fear to the drums what is loved most? what is hated least? sensing a sensational sensation, I ask am I making any sense? We watch the children prey with handgun … Continue reading Wisdom Tainted

Judgement

Be home before dawn, she said but she forgets my insolence plastered upon my skin like moisture in monsoon I glide, purposeful waking in my wake the aspirations of the none with quiet spells of assumption forging disillusion for the prideful the gifts I bring are a curse you know I pull the winners into the lands of the sorrowed culling the shameful with frost and fears of tomorrow I am that which you seek and fail to find I wield the might which you wish to bring against the walls of your enemies As I dance over the winded … Continue reading Judgement

Snakebitten

She was a snakebite all applewood smoke and sundowns forthright and out of sight it was a shakedown and it started with a frown I was a poor boy all limbo shine and coarse ground Midnights and gasoline all we need to motor through the tall light smeared dirty clean with a hand out shave off an inch or two heavy hands and nicotine just need a spark bathing in the fountains of another trailer park bruising in this shitty town she was a snakebite She was so loud you never registered her sound I knew it was a shakedown … Continue reading Snakebitten
