The Storm of Ages

I was given a taste of something... sweet. 
Innocence reborn a new, 
I... am... born... again. 

While some celebrate, 
others cringe and cry.
They try to mock and separate, 
what is truth and real? 

Yelling openly,
and not the...Read More

The Ultra Violence part2





A humanity Slain by a black ghost flame

Because their God was an unspeakable name

A Mournful, Insane, multitude with emnity and self induced labor pains

An Eon that has never awoken - A Copt of Souls- skin of the seas soaken-

Nature's Chained Haiku


The living landscape.
Natures stage, showing poems.
Painting the canvas.

Sculpted in true form.
Lifes' canopy, its' awning.
A naked portrait.

Sunlight on our skin.
The kiss of destiny's plan.
Shining in fullness.

Wade through times' passing.
Wallow in magical mists.
Wishing, stoking fires.

Thinking in silence.
Smelling smoke from the chimneys.
Sending memory.

Carrion
Studying the studying
staring back - heavy shiney black
on the coffin road - I stood in the gods
an imposing carrion crow perched
Johnny Cash of fauna
Studying the studying
piercing dark inquisitive eyes
scanning for a body - to beak hack 

Leaving - his panoramic...Read More

Language Rots
Language rots
in memories,
thoughts,
but in dreams 
above all
do lips blow
cherry O's and ah's

rolling hilltops into
milky afterbirth atmosphere
that I tumble down
quite suddenly by ear,

And in the valley pitch...
Blind visions—
Master!
Totem!
Taboo...too clear!
A knife pulled from 
ear to ear.

My tongue dries
in One breath.
There is no...Read More

Premium Member Embryos Unseen
All life is precious; 
This, the sculptor and carver know.

They see the veins in the stone and the breath in the wood; they free the elemental life, from its bondage.

Chisel and rasp, deliver the life, that no one else sees;...Read More

A Jerky Reverie
A Jerky Reverie

Where is the moon just now?
The light shining from the sun
appears, to have blotted it out.
The stark darkness of a motionless 
void, where atomic debris not seen,
passes
 through it, violating solid state.
Harmonious discontent, disconcertedly 
in serial fashion proceeds...Read More

Baptism
It started with
a drop that burnt my forehead at first,
then dissipated before it 
had a chance to cool.
Denied passage on the path that traces my jawbone, ending where my mouth falls into a frown.

MONOCRUSHED
I visited the optician, for my failed eye
That sailed all over, no see but look
Down the banana plantatian, directed to vie
For every interested favor, for any could hook

I thought me had seen, a scene so strange
And days were nineteen, the...Read More

Cosmological Fantastical Imemorial Lil Opus
aswirl within tremendous maelstroms
universal united uninhabitable cauldron

outrageous, portentous
thunderous cacophony in tandem

with thick mucilaginous fog

Cloaking
Lost unto a Gin spin
The blood grows thin
To the beckoning 
Of a morning hangover of regret
And reading the tet a tet
Of slurring rambling 
The pre-amble 
Shall read
Here lies the afterbirth 
Of the Man Child Boy
Who writes until the morning

The Kakocracy has finally won.
Didn’t you know that?
The rats at the helm 
No longer fear the rat catcher.
He was been bought a long time ago
And is nothing more than an errand boy
Who knows his place.

Birth has become an act of...Read More

(Sing along to the carol, "We Three Kings...")
We three Kings of Orient aren't,
Really three queens, we came from afar,
We arrived on time,
Fed sheep and swine,
Delivered the afterbirth,
Cooked food, and then made Peace on Earth, Oh......

what do the poor hang onto
when all the trees are gone, 
when hearths are quaked to crumbs
nowhere to hide from
the whirling gray eye 
of a wayward sun

in the afterbirth  
showboaters will arrive 
one spoonful 
to feed a million,

Mooncalf
Stilts balanced by the fear of falling.
Afterbirth and straw. Inside out.
A mix of skin and string.

Pulled out like the tide,
a mess of purple tubes
and slime-life.

Your eyes as round as earths.
You try to eat the night air
then seek the primary. Milkmouth.

Birthday
The summer labored against an agonized yawn,
and through its sweated lips
withdrew a round fruit.
It is too big to ask how it had ever fit.
She collapses and withers, her waters
vaporing skyward, no afterbirth brought forth.
I take the fruit.
It is fresh and...Read More

Jack Kerouac
I used to write like
Jack Kerouac.
Words
crumbling down
paper. 
Stark thoughts
marked
by dots
and dashes.
 
Flashes of schoolyard brilliance
The hill I would
climb over
to be
someone different. 
I never saw life
through a dot.
LSD.
My father
was on mushrooms,
when he and my mother
created me.
 
Psychedelic sperm
meets
bitter weed
infested ovum.

It's Harvest Time
Behind the reaper, glistening beneath
the fading rays of light,
crude elements of happenstance
lie in its wake, passed over
and awaiting those who glean
the afterbirth.

Yes, there is that querulous
persistence of the poor,
that stubborn cadre of the prescient,
who will peer into our souls
and find...Read More

Eye  control darkness
Standing in creek consciousness
Eye pain portal
Me maladjusted myalgia
Hyposyncratic virilence
It tick, me tick
Bit me
Me sick
Loads shells, no click

Famine lives thru sublimation

Decrepid canal lazes with crude afterbirth

This Poet You Call Poe
I fear the whispers feed my mind
They tell me what to say
For me the light is hard to find
I wasn't born this way

I hear and see those things long gone
They help me with my craft
Sometimes I write from dusk 'til...Read More
