19 Haikus and the Horse of Freedom

19 HAIKU AND THE HORSE OF FREEDOM It is never real Only in the midst of pain Finally I see After the liquor I am found on the ceiling crawling to the floor Let's get on with this Panic in the avenues Ominous defeat Penultimate move the coyote will win again After the feast rest Roses are in bloom But beware its thorny sting Danger in beauty This may be nonsense Perhaps a hidden message Us, out of focus Terrible idols There is no sanctuary Only this false love Blue marble shining The cloak of the universe Pin holes to new worlds Orphans they will sing The ears of the lost mother All deaf and hollow I heard the organ From deep inside my carcass Eighty years revealed Twist reality Climate is about to turn Unless we climb it Above where we are There's always something higher Moral altitude Black bird and squirrel Primordial screams abound The heft of your stress Help me through the rest It was dirty from the start Too many lost friends Windows let us see Warnings from the centuries Repeat the spilling An ocean of blood The sky, oh the deep blue sky Mirrors of my dream So after this trip I will resemble the sun Slipping and then gone I will remember Only all my vacancies All my cold heart ache Secret abductee Evacuating my soul Be strong, tell our tale Hold now, Things are about to change a bit A south wind is requested The landowners have made a decree None shall pass without the horse of freedom Tranquil milk Absent bones Half ripple Iron horns Silent gallows Child's dream Scarlet metal Foul skin Aborted tributary In Momentary treason Still Corners Ranked sorrows Helpless eagles Angled anchors Blue exceptions Instant bottoms Captured fact Rotted fortune Abducted forest Lost Under dark cover Rose sanctuary Riddled backside Old man Crooked onion Starred escorts Tame imposter Internal orchid Assimilate Austere corridors Walk in dim illumination At first Light It behaves like a wanted thing Wagging its tail In disguise with a halo Playing to your desires In a cross of shiny blades And forbidden jewels With skin, translucent and blue Hell hides from you In the Soothing prayers whispered through the air The horse of freedom Long, without calculation It is a wanted thing
