Mirrors don't lie about frank and ernest portrayal...

With John Wayne snarling at me
from the television screen,
I quickly glance at my watch;
five minutes to the end 
of a year’s journey through
what the Psalmist would describe
 as the Valley of Death,
and what Dante would describe
as a descent through hell.

Mission half completed,
I’d watch from behind a tombstone quite a distance away,
the crowd gathered around my accomplishment
for someone else’s final resting place.
The cortege carried the coffin laid it at rest upon the slats,
tired repetitive words fall from lips, that refuse...Read More

Awoke with existential nihilism since birthday two
Initially, an attempt

Great people have one desirable quality~~
You won't find them looking
to be 'top dog'.
They are already accomplished,
and fully know just that.

They do not run panting feverishly to be 
ahead of the pack.
Somehow the winds of the seas,
are the sails at their...Read More

How are amazing it is
The honour that shall be given
How suprising it is

Coming from far away
The joy of blessings
Written in the stars
The outcome shall be
And will be

Cool cold froth
slides across their pages
they whirl their congratulatory comments
like pucks across ice crystal cut sharp and precise 
waiting for return compliments
basting their words with oily accomplishment
slick and to strict recipe
baking like fat turkeys 
with temperatures
mild and appetites easily

I was raised in one of those white nationalist churches,
passing itself off as a Christian evangelical Bible church,
where "evangelical" meant fundamental
and "fundamental" meant we did not interpret scripture
but accepted it as God's literal trans-historical Word

Nobody knows the goals

It's back to work tomorrow , 
my days off have just flown.
I've done nothing of significance.
My weekend, I have blown.

I baked some treats yesterday,
enough to last awhile.
Got my hair newly shorn.
in the shortest possible style.
