The is in the wrong place
What would sly look like
would there be any foxiness
and the 
what image brought to mind
a million clones
with black tie and white shirts
over used and unpretentious
would unused words
believe they are better
than the rest
Exquisite a diamond wall
that magnifies
exploding stars
as easy

The experts were angry at first, but by the time they thought to invite me to the party all three were livid.
Three men were backed up on three walls, bodies crossed, minds set, angry faces, helping not a bit.

Cordon and Contain
"End it now he called to me"
As he was backed into a corner you see
"Do it. Go on do it. I dare you."
Wanting me surely to follow it through

We waited and left him with no where to go

The US Election Blues
The US Election Blues

Two heavyweight fighters
standing in a ring
who’ll make it to The White House
who’ll get the final swing?
Drink, till it’s all over
take a round the world cruise
I’ve got the transatlantic
no hope US election blues.

I feel sorry for the voters
disillusioned...Read More

the sun hurts my eyes
i used to know love
take her out and tell her how i feel
promise the world 
over the moon
laughing into a sunset
Televisions for mirrors
best and amazing dripping on every kiss
sugar down the funnel

i worshipped the idea
of you

release the doves

Spartacus
hy does my skin feel so cold
A stray thought
resting on my lonely mind
The feeling of warmth 
fleeting, vanished along with the rolling clouds
Is this supposed to be a paradise
or a living nightmare
Once the shadows part ways
here arrives the swift sense...Read More

Shrinking Violet
It's all smoke and mirrors,
Cocooned in magenta mascara and lavender lace,
The ever-elusive ivory stag now backed into a corner,
Delighting in an artificial solitude's icy embrace,
Brandishing a jaw of pearls to sheathe the dagger up her sleeve,
A being without mortal anchors...Read More

“Did you mean all those?
All the ones built to hurt.”
Is there form, plan, or purpose?
To those devices
To the bridge connecting
Was it intention to make sure it has burnt?

Maliciously never-ending
Devoid of way with no more choices
Backed...Read More

Sickie
Run all you want you won’t get away.
Keep chasing your tail, same stuff different day.

Backed into a corner – cower and moan, you’ve blocked yourself - scream- deny all 
you can.
But you’ve done the deeds and there’s blood on your...Read More

You can look the other way, say you did not see a thing
Do not want to get involved, let the other guy do it
Beside you have to many other things to do
You want to hear the music, but you don't...Read More

Rape
Dark clouds rise in the skies with the high pitch
of loud thunder
Even the old to the young can't escape the destruction
of society's outrageous plunder.
Shredded clothes, 
Aching bones, 
and ripped souls leaves physical impressions of a 
story untold.
Desperation of ejaculation
Thrusting in...Read More

A Game with Death
Deep within the confines of my mind, I play a game with Death itself
The pieces set, black against white, the game played a thousand times before
I move the pawns to block the enemy line, and I feel a tinge of...Read More
