Wine and Cheese

Offended is an expensive Vintage
lacking precision 
I recommend a less sulfuric fermentation


grapes of wrath
so much to offer
each glass
breathe and savor 
see legs of the vine 
tannins to taste

or we can 
over drink 
over think
get wasted and offended 
tick clocks fast
amidst boiling stew
issues skewed by our own jaded views

we can be peaceful 
yet perceived to push hate

our temple may become damaged
via friendly fire

and as for poets... 
we may be the single most egotistical, emotional, tremendously divine 
individuals of all time and we know it!

we laugh when skies cry, seek solitude as joyful crowds arrive
we write and write 'till pens run dry of ink

we, the Swiss cheese...

we pretend to be bulletproof, whilst writhing inside
we juxtapose 
we justify 
we jigsaw puzzle brothers and muzzle others
we control situations then
recite white lies to 
monopolize conversation
all the while remaining dedicated to being offended
with loose change and pretentious 

and boy we've figured out the whole Multi-Verse because 
"My Deity can beat up your Deity!
yet, let me not be the last fool to promise you, 
we are so miniscule, the god's will be too busy swinging sticks on the golf links 
to visit you before the toil of your sore drama is through

we must pave our way, keeping heads clear and high 
stamping urgency upon trusting self 

Mister Bob Marley sang it best with: "EVERYTHINGS GONNA BE ALRIGHT!"


upon this short enlightening journey
exists a plethora of big aspirations 
we'll fail to grasp if our hopes swirl in the vortex of black clouds
offended at misunderstandings and minute words
burning midnight oil on the spoil.

    Great aroma of wine in your verses filled with both the sourness and sweetness of truth about who the poet is.Lots of food for thought,indeed cheesy too...An excellent poem which speaks with lots of honesty.

    A truly fine one my friend. Write the way your heart sings , you'll never go wrong. For a poet's heart has a million flavors to paint the sky, the world and the spirit of mankind with. I once wrote hard and raw as a young man. I back then enjoyed stabbing deep to watch the initial shock. Now I pull back because my aging heart lost the fire that fueled a bad temper and wild ways. Hold onto your fire my friend, blast the sneaky world with cannon balls of " piss an vinegar "... Damn the PTB.

    It's like whisky and butter. I like your virtual introduction, and speed of words. JSLAMBERT, I don't know why you were gone for such a long time, BUT KNOW THIS! This site needs more poets like you, not that I've ever met another poet, who's got the right groove, when bouncing a straight shot of words. Peace and Love, no time for hate. "Everythings gonna be alright" you got that right. Love this, raping rant, swirl smell, and on and on....weeeeeeeeeeee! Hey, It's Awesome...Linda

    I think you're spot in with this one man, quality write. I love it when folk are honest with their poetry, invention and truth after all, are not necessarily exclusive of each other, and anyway, "Don't worry, about a thing, cos...."

    I think parts were stereotyping poets, but all in all, a very interesting write, my friend. the message in the end is fantastic!

    All of our ingredients listed. Fear is divergent! ...I believe God is honored when we worship 'It', no matter what name or road traveled, they lead to him.. Spray-painting vocal burners constantly! ... Lmao @ the cardboard. Man you don't want me windmilling with no hands, taking the pumas wit fat-laces off my feet and putting them on my hands, at 43?

    Only a true poet's heart could have written this gem! I am adding this great one to my fav list now. Thanks.....
