With a MagnifyingGlass

Do you see all the colors that shade us?
rivaling all sense and reason, laughing back hollow.
All smiles-- lieing first back. and truely cutting
across every shallow relevence ...riding silver ,slandered ,slanted...

          When?  Without following with   Why?

Words cross and fade, pass these lips timid
   Why? Never.
Each and every thought lucid and untouchable
  breaking on rocks, shores lusting foamfilled
moments breathed and retracted lifeless 

Spread the low intellect flat and even
to unlevel, descheveled constants, speaking
unheard conversations pasted falsely...
listing every disallusioned perception like bingo numbers openly.
We're truthful animals when subjected to questionable scenarios
as the painful plots make assholes of otherwise calmer cats.
This reality is necessary and bothersome.

    So true... and painful to hear. This is amazing, Steve, one of my favorite poems yet. I love your images -and how you play around with the words. "each and every thought lucid and untouchable breaking on rocks, shores lusting foamfilled moments breathed and retracted lifeless..." gorgeous!

    Hey there Mr. Steve. Well, I sense much angst and frustration with an unwanted truth here. Honestly, been off the site for personal stuff at home, so my braincells are not functioning too well and I do believe I should have read this over again before commenting. However, that last verse is intense. All amazing work from you. Love, Shar
