Double Blind 20-20
See what!

Don’t let a let a lot of
skyjack noise 
		         cloud your IQ vision
Radar babies make sonar decisions
for the latest batch 
of tech toys

They be so double blind batty,
making a-plenty penthouse dwellers’

Pirate Eyes of False Profits

They love to sell into the dark end,
where covetous souls
plunge to the bottomless debt deep

Parrot voice chirps got the suicidal siren blasting:
Saying a lifestyle of surfeiting
is an overdrawn bank account pleasure drowning

Pirate eyes cast a silver tongue hook
of bait-and-switch repo...Read More

Let the Weak Say

And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: 
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, 
and their spears into pruninghooks: 
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.
Isa 2:4...Read More

Smells Like Government

Rancid lemon rope squeeze
around a rotten tomato neck tie,
crooked odor bow hanging out of place 
Acid reflux raisin tax bleed;
dripping spoiled, milquetoast lies
out a sour-twisted, prune puckered face

Tart tongue 
sulfur speak disorderly,
dirty saliva fingers in the propaganda pie
Such a bowel...Read More

Premium Member Bourbon Street and Candy Canes
Bourbon street and candy canes two unicorns in disguise, 
Nickels for an easy dime, 
And a quarter for a rhyme. 

Shooting stars and colored moons aces to the heart, 
A world through rose tinted glasses, 
And dreams left standing gone...Read More

Variation  on a Door's theme

I forge the night
forget the day
Ask your heart

just a game of

No free love
thy bounty gone
in terms of time

I hide knee-deep
in a tiny shell,

Bait and Switch
The devil done put a new face
on an old sales technique
It's brash, it's bold
It's tricky sweet
But it tastes sour, this maggot treat
He swapped the fresh for the spoiled meat
Had to bait the trap good,
hide the kill switch under the hood
Alternative...Read More

Sell You Lure
He always knew
when he got that return call from you:
The deal was done,
the negotiation was won

Sometimes winning meant a compromise
But the reason he was considered 
one of the wireless best;
he never used the bait-and-switch,
he never had to cold call sell...Read More

La Isla Sets me Free
Amor, you allude like a cloud
To something great
Your name, a promise of Jerusalem
Your exclusive mouth, like water
on my dry lips and deeply vacant chest…
I’ve never touched a cloud
Nor known the inevitable fog
Of falling into you
But now that I know…

how to win a war and end world hunger
you have your enemy surrounded.

place a pile of rocks on the door steps of three people who have caused you harm
put a candle in your window for three days
encourage three people you trust with your life to do...Read More

the shadow doesn't entirely make sense
watching you change from mr superstar to a fly
the bait and switch of oldest tricks

heartbroken i will try
to catch you in the rye

intuition of sickness

nine worlds in my head
how do they manage to survive
the power of obsession
bringing together the impulsive
an obsession of mine

Leading like minds to their destination
blind leading the blind
tight circles of familiar patterns
they weave
sewing the spiritual seeds
that grow to be refined

just like...Read More

The under rug swept prophecy
He will be taken 
to a corner of the world
forced to live without
charged with false accusations
enprisoned and doomed
a fate worse than death

no one knows where this jail is
or who he is
or when his final day may be

the sins of the...Read More

Bait and Switch...
What a world,I find myself,
stagnant pools in wait engulfs
.....a vortex of negativity
the positive having to face such enmity...

Feeling the need to escape strangulation
surrounded by those whom enforce diminution
evil conspirators against loving transition
....only looking to exchange positions...

Waging war on the Beast
You can't entice this mind of ice

full aware of the ware's your hocking
digging for gold with hook and chisel

flame you out without a doubt
i'll show you what i'm all...Read More
