Whisper's of October
Whispers in this soup bowl
20 minutes after its muse explodes,
Daylight remains nothing more than a dream
Warding off the howling sound...
change, creation, friend, identity,
Cut down to any size,
Crumble, crop me wrong
Pull the insulation from my heart.
Never will I be "A Paper Doll!"
Thank you for calling me...
My perception is vague, my reflection unclear.
My eyes are two distorting mirrors that devise
a veneer fashioned with my fears.
I’m seized inside an illusory disguise...

I The Mirror - With A Major Contribution By Joseph May - Dramatic Free Verse
identity, conflict, dark, depression, grief,

stands before me

and the mirror reflects a melancholy song.
i the mirror

To Bloom in Red Flame
identity, image, passion,
Underneath all the layers
Of reason and understanding
In passion's pleasure bed of red
Paroxysms of pleasure
Emanate from my core
Searing the shroud
Peacocks and Predators
The raptor and the peacock hence,
Sit pensive on a rambling fence.
The first, inclined to be the host,
Jumped down to claim the nearest post.
The pea averse...

I often sit for long periods of time
hoping the perfect beginning will come to me.
To write a poem that starts with a pristine Capital
The Veil I Wear
A fire blazes behind the veil
This veil I wear
is not made of cloth
for no fabric could withstand
the incendiary passion
no man's hand

The moon knows my true name

Back to me
identity, me, self,
This my nothing-happy,
my stone-faced bliss,
this is my sweet release
from grinning artifice.
I am floating on zero,
life-sloughed and stuff-free,
I am guileless, I am tribeless,
I am back to...
computer, culture, identity, satire,
Has the convenience of technology

I pray the code my soul to keep?
Does your universe live within 4G

Today I found a friend
Who knew everything I felt
She knew my weakness
And the problems I’ve been dealt.
She understood my wonders

with your arrogant throng
You may treat me with disrespect
I'm still here, I am strong
Why don't you like it when...

Somewhere someplace not far away a couple lied together.
No talk about the future no talk about forever.
They had lovers of their own their lovers...
THE OTHER SELF
( Repost )
Somehow, her eyes expand with the disobedient sky
and there, she senses urchins filling water on the lake
her feet and thighs slide up changing...

humanity, identity, imagery, life,
Sometimes we sit alone,
quiet, trying to figure
out who carried a piece
of us with them, as we try
to put ourselves together again...
Artwork - what am I
Scratching their heads
They look at me
Am I a tree stump
Am I a grotesque face
Inside I am laughing
I know what I am.
Am a freak...
More Secret Selves
I do not know?
I've been wondering about our secret selves...
The vegetarian smoker
The introverted joker
The soldier with the peace sign
The anonymous byline
The accountant with unfinished sums
The deaf musician's steel...
