Premium Member Goodbye Mankind
Distant clouds seem settled upon city towers bringing odd blend to nature and man.
Odd in the thought for though of nature, man separates himself in his every action. Concrete and steel raised to intrude and make forceful their existence, yet...Read More

Dystopia now
Beyond my back, lie rows of houses,
in fact there all around, 
This is suburbia the sprawl, 
Spreading in all directions,
Concrete and steel surge upwards, 
Deciduous trees steamrolled down,
Roads dark alleyways fester, 
Behold this was once a town. 

We weave through...Read More

Flashes that echo
Sudden flash evanescing slowly 
Cracks in a concrete sky
Peering
Leering over mountains of clay
On this very day it comes apart
Peeling away like withered bark on a tree

Kill me............kill me

The end of days
Prolonged pain

Suffer to eat
Eat and suffer
Paradoxal misery
Limbo land of black...Read More

Premium Member Stone Bones
Gray shrouds cover my way
Sets the tone for today
Our silent sun sending
Rays running round corners
Lighting my workday walk
Slowly sun beams burn off
Melting morning misty mind

Dare to tread these concrete slabs
Rapt in wonder of this awe
Great stone bones are in it...Read More

Whispers Louder than Lightning
Down below we are running 
Through smokes and mirrors, 
Down unnamed streets,
Those ships across the lake 
Carrying life and our dreams 
While our Captains are by the shore 
Rolling sand across the beaches.

We have this lemon juice 
Squeezed into our...Read More

Shadow Of A Doubt
By Craig J. Burt /Jimmy Boom Semtex
Are you ok?
Your brain's rattling like crazy
You're dancing like a ballerina
Twerkin around these crazy hot streets
You say why be a bore?
Life is a chore
Refuse to fade
Like a shadow of a doubt
Silver star filled skies
Shining...Read More

Intertwined
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Intertwined in everything and nothing. Apart forever and never apart. Always reaching, never meeting. Intertwined in nothing and everything. 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I twist and turn rising higher. 
I’m forced into destruction and anger. 
I want to dance with the wind. 
But my...Read More

Trapeze People
Trapeze artists wear two condoms at a time
When performing at great heights
You can never have too much protection
Jumping on thin lines from way up high
Flying in all directions with blindfolds on

Smoke cigarettes but don't play with matches
Leave dangerous acts to...Read More

Between the cracks

And just as I had forgotten,
What lay behind these concrete slabs,

Behind these symbols of despair,

Through a crack,
A green shoot sprang up,

And I knew this was not the end,
That there would always be more,

That however deep it was buried,
Life, Love,

Would always...Read More

All is not Lost
I know so much, but I do not know myself
Wolf personalities as well as those of an elf
I have put all these on the shelf

Maybe I am losing me
Maybe the world is just mean,
With all its paradoxes,
And am acting like...Read More

Premium Member Ice is Tossing Cars Willy Nilly
The ice swirled around in a dangerous way
Tossing cars willy nilly into each other and concrete bridges
I marveled at her confidence and power
Hoping I was not going to slide into the two wrecked cars in front of me
She gave me...Read More

Man WORKING- Sitting Under the Autumn Sun

Envision concrete steps;

LIFE IN THE FAST LANE
The calendar flies off the wall

Going nowhere at the speed of light

Days quickly slip away out...Read More

As time changed
On sundays and holidays
I will ramble out
to the countryside
pedaling my bicycle,
you will be waiting for me
having the meal cooked and ready.

In the mornings
I will sweep the courtyard
and surrounding
of the fallen leaves and dirt
with a broom,
you will tend the vegetable plants

What is Fear
What is Fear? 
Is it only an emotion? 
Or is it our inner self looking into a mirror? 
Is it a way of life?
Or a way simply to survive?
Is it a way to dominate, control, over-power? 
Or a way to...Read More

Premium Member Earth's Body of Teaching
Encultured bodies teach in binary history
of masculine elite win/lose entitled living dominance
and feminine non-elite sadly dying recessive
bipolar cultures.

Elite white straight males
of Western mind
and patriarchal heartlessness

donated to preferably receptive women
