Sentenced

They place my vowel
Under barren landscape

Sipping from cracked porcelain cup
Of an alienated heartbeat

Devilish grins
Slapping Karma’s bottom,
A quarterback’s misguided win

Liar’s prophetic retinas glaze
With metric, disciplinary ruler

They place my consolidated lyric
On upper hand
Of cubic zirconium petulance

Their torn, lanolin coated tissue
Degrading polyester embedded uniform

Mislead by “savior’s” belief
A desolate embodiment of character

They observe me
With cherry coated pupils
Through rusty, iron bars

Its frosty echoes
Portraying fickle sonatas in these stale winds

Yet,
My ambient tear
Is simply a hoax for their recycled victory

Holding wooden spoon against my waist

Ready to crawl

    Drake, my friend, you have a really settling effect on me. When I get to feeling like I need a dose of humility, I need only read some of your fantastic work. I'll take a line from George Gobel and say that when I read your poetry I feel like a pair of brown shoes in a room full of tuxedoes..... Great writing, as usual.... Jake

    You're an artist with imagery... The way you throw those adjectives in there ... really works... It's definately an art.

    This is about the fourth time I have come back to read this poem. You are a master of metaphor! Every time I read this it is like a veil shifting and I glimpse another truth. Your comments on my poetry is very encouraging. Thank you.

    Fine writing here! Going to add it to my faves. I can just see you doing this at a slam, or even better in some smoky club with Ginsberg and Kerouac in attendance... Jack
