Wise words will
Taut true till

Bloom bright boast
Taste tough toast

Feel form face
Thrill tough trace

Toil tells time
Charm crisp chimes

Live laughs lost
Craze carves cost

Lift lost lines
Feel faith fine

Set stern sway
Work walks way

Brave brisk break
Sign swift stake

Mind moves make
Touch treats take

Legion of mercenaries
As if humility were a legion of mercenaries
Descending rapidly over me as a scent of a lascivious woman
In my mind religiosity is a token given in your smile
The smile that often questions
The final indicia that separates wanting from needing,
Desirous from...Read More

Premium Member NOW, IS PASSED

An axiom soon for a dairy truck, as it ambles,
The yellow school bus full of rambunctiousness,
A watched clock tower crowds fate gambles,
The unsteady quietude of the unconsciousness,
The core of crazed vs amazed is its ridiculousness.

Along the glass of a lazy stroll,

No disk did move my larynx clear,

The way to a man's heart is through his heart
Contrary to how the old saying goes
After all my years this is what I've discovered
It's an axiom most people don't know

The “through his belly” quote wasn't accurate
As far as this old...Read More

Waiting For The Nirvana

Physical world runs on the mandate of physics
Controls the levers of life’s complex dynamics,
Every action has equal and opposite reaction.

There it was loud on the intercom
“Please come to the office, Tom’
And just like a bad sitcom
They dropped the bomb
No discussion just a blunt axiom
Told to grab his pompom
And march off to Guam
To retrieve a precious rhomb
Tom was in quite...Read More

The Power of Giving
Giving is a placid air
It's safe to inhale in times of despair 
Lies deep a treasure chest that hold valuables 
To put smile on someone face 

To give is a priceless gift
Far better than a fountain of gold
In charity we...Read More

Knowledge and Science
Milton’s Paradise Lost is a book I sometimes dip into. For modern 
readers it does not lend itself to a quick browse. It’s pretty clear from the

My version in paperback contains insightful explanatory notes. 
Apparently “Science”...Read More

The Artiste
I am The Artiste. 

I draws lines by cutting carcasses, among other things.

I am the crazed dancer, down pouring a diaspora of red essence and entrails as I sporadically spin.

I am the antagonist; the anti-hero jester with a ricin covered...Read More

Premium Member An Age Old Axiom

Some things in life are like falling off a log
Like eating and sleeping, like walking in a fog
Cept some days fall short
It's then we must resort
To the age old axiom, “A squeeky wheel annoys the dog!”

Safe Haven
In this murky swamp
Where oxygen cannot creep
Dark is the blood of children 
Playfully allowed sleep
Westward facing 
A new front of tears
Delivers misfortune 
To their black masked fears
The axiom of power
Opens and closes its hand
And with casualty 
It makes a casual...Read More

The Rant
Gone now are the wondrous minds of old,
whose era treasured learning over gold,
And humble were the thoughts and words of these,
who, trothed to truth, would now be left displeased,
by hurried tempers bent on winning wars,
neglectful of th’ endurance truth implores,
Tis...Read More

To Brittany Flood
Seven years, one for each of the sages,

Lessons learned in love and depravement,
I've abused abasement to the point of containment,
A deranged modality attempts to explain it,
Cuz my pain remains until I...Read More

Unseen Heart
Axiom does not lie upon the
plush bed of the words I've said.
It doesn't flourish under influence of the
flowery texts I've written.
Axiom does not fully exist behind the
actions I've deliberately displayed.

It is ingrained within the subtle folds,
inexplicable nuances
and playful innuendos.
It is...Read More

A Bowl of Cherries
If life’s a bowl of cherries,
Or you think that saying fits,
You must realize there’s a factor
That the axiom omits.

Which is cherries, though delicious,
Have a stone lodged deep inside,
The existence of which isn’t something
That can be denied.

Therefore, optimists and pessimists

“A day without sunshine is like...  well... night”
A brilliant axiom I say
To the person that uttered this amazing observation
You certainly just made my day

That's a mighty safe assumption
So stop your belly...Read More

Finding fallacy in every reverence.

Basic geometry’s based on four axioms,
Something that many kids study in school,
But a fifth axiom’s needed to prove it all,
This is where things start in getting real cool.

Versifier - A communion
Versifier - A communion.

The sacrifice, adore, psalms - divine,

Inner devotion is emotion, commotions of thought,

Truth - from estranged proverbs, severe afflictions of the sacred heart,

Verity is fact, the axiom domain,

The path - flames of sentiment,

A sacred grail, of poured emotions.
