If you must 
You will only end up in a bust 
You see you proclaimed yourself as a King 
In a place where they did not want to hear such a thing 
Defending from armies they did have

The lion prowls for a fresh meal
Ready to kill and watch you squeal
Teeth and claws shred your heart
Bones and muscle torn all apart

He seeks one of us to devour
Not resting one bit of the hour
Ready to pounce on the attack

Among persons known within mine barbed ken
Analogous to black box
holding untold secrets,
I share the following self
introspection with ye,
which purported hidden truths
might set me free,
albeit laborious effort

to loose constituent amalgamated
compound elements unmined
tantamount to agony
riddling psyche effort to extract
thorny matters incumbent upon me
versus tapping Androcles and the lion

We don’t want to appear foolish when we might  be in hell
We can practise smiling and opening the door
Unless like me you’re crippled and you’re feeling  very low

"Another Man’s Treasure"

Jetsam tumbles
broken doorbells
no one

ironing boards 
pressing to imprint
something of significance
a life, your life
droll and predictable

it all sinks 
to the bottom 
of a bad dream
with yesterday’s 
stale tears

sharp heels
clicking on a parquet floor
like knives ripping words
jagged scratches on old...Read More

You flooded the world

From the devil demise
To all ends sake

Southern Comfort
Magnolias wafting through the breeze,
mixin’ with sweet iced tea.
Porch swingin’ and guitars strummin’,
playin’ cards strewn on the table.
A Remington rifle hangs above the door,
next to a nice ten-point buck;
Air so thick you're breathin’ water.
There is nothin’ quite like a little...Read More

Tolerance by itself is not a virtue,
Tolerance by itself not a virtue
Nor is acceptance,
As they generally come with poor eyesight,
No insight,
Are hard of hearing,
And tend to be motivated by fear.

The good news is that,
We still have patience and understanding,
To turn to.

There are abilities that we can...Read More

The Irony of Growing Old

Looked at your situation from a rational point of view,
And taken the time to write down your thoughts,
In the for and against column,
Regarding how you feel...Read More

Padraig's Fire

Hurry through the night
With windstorms
Breathing at your back
Before the shadows know
You pass their doors -
Their darkened, dusty, empty hearths -
Before the dawn ascends -
Before the pipes awaken;
Carry close
Precious flint and tinder
Next to the wildly beating
Warmth -
Beneath your flowing cape.

Carrying your own weight
If you can't,
Or are not prepared to carry your own weight,
Then you had better have understanding friends.

Without being able to carry your own weight,
And not having understanding friends,
Then Houston you have a problem,
And you need to own it,
Rather quickly.

The Foxy Neutrino
The psychology of the sun is strange...

The violinist's taupe 
strapped sandals, color of beach 
sand, burning, slap tiles

with embedded grime, like
the charred plaster walls of a Syrerian
merchant. Anytime...a fear:

bombs dropped, scarring 
an isolated biped life.
Morning edges spill

one way to succeed in life
With  few exceptions,
There is only one way to succeed in life,
Which is, to go through the right hoops,
At the right time,
At the right speed for each hoop.

Of course you could pay someone else to go through them for you,
But...Read More

Broken Disciple

9 years and a decade later my story and song 
Have turned into a heartless cycle
May I share about a broken disciple?

Deathsnake coiling, squeezing.
Heavy soul wheezing.
Conforming for conjoining.

A trick or two sets the mood.
Teasing and pleasing.
For a quickened f-_-ening.

In distillery of proofs.
In massage of noose.
Native tongued nativity.

Masochism helix form.
Homing sense reaching.
To carry me the way home?

The distance sends a beacon.
An Emmissary.

Balancing on the razors edge; In-
all that gutters-in that cold ballet -
Of "before I bled."
My elixir of mangled string-theory,
Of hybrid sins and veiled shadowquery.

I need stealth and a golden beacon.
