Humility
M'Vatel, "Yield to People",
Concealing, Not Ignorance,
But Adequacy, In not Doing 'Nuff,
To Be a Friend, Husband, Servant,
As  I Observe Great Figures,
I Hope to Be in their Mold,
Models Wise, Considerate & Kind,
Intelligent, In as much as They are Hidden,
Not Frail, Afraid,...Read More

Theater of Utter Charm Part 20

any fool can be a philosopher
and it's not that big a deal
to be an Oracle either
we all notice more than we let on
so much is kept from us
to lessen disruption is the scam
while time disrupts this moment into the next
everyone...Read More

Hedonic Treadmill
Insatiable thirst and hunger
A bottomless materialistic pit
Always something for nothing
Prop your feet up; you’re the shit

Narcissist lazy behavior
Spoiled childish attitude
Snowflakes; everybody’s a winner
Except for people like me and you

They want it all
Dedicated to useless social tasks
Judgmental of others 
Sluggish and...Read More

The authenticity of realism stems from life’s birth,
the certainty of truth is substantial in time’s ticking,
while the presence of verity equals honest self-worth,
my white roses are flourishing without thorns pricking.

Where the experiences flow I must put...Read More

Dear Andrew Cohen,

I am riveted by “Evolutionary Enlightenment: A New Path to Spiritual Awakening.”  Your theme that enlightenment need not be limited to elitist and eisegetical experiences, memory, but invites us to become co-travelers in and through an evolutionary...Read More

An Imminent Fantasy
But it's only that drunken-immortality fairytale

embedded into your unfortunate soul and

pressed seemingly against your lips,

struck across with that fancy red gloss of her favorite coat

of which gathered every ounce of deceit

she could have possibly mustered up

out of the back of...Read More

A Morning View

A day comes with a
morning dew,
For the words, less
to cope all few,
The breezy wave and
tweeting eyes,
Of rising sun, view
the Himalaya highs,
The trancing
eclipses and
faltering trees,
Held me there,
caught me freeze,
And the prevailing
dusky downy haze,
To falling cascade
of ivory rays,
Where I hied to let

SlushPlunge
Distinctly extinct, the last mink is on the brink, toes curled round a spring board over an ice rink.. the warm blood of his family slushing the surface and resembling candy, no way out but down, or can he shuffle...Read More

The Ocean's Reverie
Imagination ‘pon a massive, vast,
And boundless harbinger depends. One that
The sea, unequalled in adequacy, may serve.
Within the ceaselessness of its supreme
And transcendental flux, phantasmata
May bathe in peace, unmannerly towards
The tempest who, in turn, replieth thus:
“Am I a captive of the...Read More

His Disappearance
Malicious brigand of thought
Shadow dancing about
Times dark mastermind
Of sand felled memory
No deliberation granted
On the adequacy of crime
Here the confidence breaks
The vibrant glow dulls
This slow compiling of theft
His character torn away
The sum of his being lessened
Accomplishments sponged away
Slowly losing earned identity
Burning...Read More
