Slug Aviator
Crimson baron,
the scarlet fumes from your tale pipe
paints the sky 
with steel blue dye

Duke of the corporeal death plane,
your splatter reign
brings a barrel of spitfire pain

As you hide in the cadaver clouds,
waiting to vulture dive 
like a mercenary bird of...Read More

Gawker - Repost
I originally posted this personal fave on 2-10-17.



Something tragic just happened up ahead,
somebody got hurt real bad ...
someone might even be dead
So you slow your car down,
just to take a peek
Peer out your window
for a quick look-see

Strung Over
I’m just an Ain’t Broken watchman,
speaking truth until  I’m Ungrateful Dead,
with a Rorschach sackcloth over my head
Dangerously living the Master plan

Beware!!  Don’t eat the poisonous strange fruit hanging ... 
the beaten pulp will intoxicate
Fill a heart with drunken...Read More

Born To Rise

Not everyone lives even knowing they will die
many never find there wings but I was born to rise,
blinding the oppressor when I learned to fly
mighty my wings my spirit burns with life,
demons pursue and witches cast spells

Premium Member A Wish To Be
Above windswept mountains, a Condor glides
To cross the wide horizon's endless band
In search of its prey that trembles and hides
From the highest mountains of wonderland
I wish I had his feathered wings to fly
To soar in freedom's space above it all

Voyage and death
Oh no!
When a boat departs from the bay,
Floating on the white flowers of the sea foam,
When a tiny bit of the Moon wanders across the oceans,
All coloured in the ash of clouds,
Not even then the rest of your life
Under the...Read More

I WISH I WEREN'T A CENTIPEDE
I WISH I WEREN’T A CENTIPEDE
by
JOHN M. ARRIBAS




I wish I weren’t a centipede, a lowly arthropod
I need a transformation into something much more mod
To obtain status, with a much higher species standing
Not be straddled with an enervating task so demanding

Vulture Vulgarian

Speech of a drunken sailor,
muttering foul things ...
utterly gutter manure color
Filthy thoughts sent virus airborne,
dirty mind intimations tattooed on

She’s a vulture vulgarian — 
Carcass breath
spreads her dead bosom infection

Unrefined manners, coarse habits
Crude behavior ill-defines 
her pagan talk,  smutty actions

Pilate Hands
When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, 
but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, 
and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, 
I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it.

Three Steps To

The stone laid plans

Their sky towers scraping the blue stratosphere

Pardon my condor sensitivity,
	but can I be 
dead serious candid with you
Everybody look down on me,
and talk mean about me
But, in the future, they’re gonna need me

Sailors In the Sky
Vultures on the wing high up in the sky
Careen in flight as they go sailing by
Tracing out patterns of vanishing lines
As they create most exquisite designs

Other birds like eagles, gulls and falcons
Also engage in such exhibitions

The Coming Of The Day
The Coming Of The Day 

Prayers sent,
Tears spent,
Strength lent,
Pipeline to be circumvent.

Broken Promises and lies,
Uniting of many tribes,
Waiting for a judge of man to surmise,
And Great Spirit to decolonize.

Black Snake of greed,
You thought we were a "vanishing breed",
The reptile met...Read More

A World of One
Night's shadows grew weary in the oppressive heat;
Repose of Earth's golden orb brought little relief.
Like a condor shadowing its prey from aloft,
There was no respite from the encompassing doom.
Behind curtains of vanity man hid his pride,
As he destroyed the Earth...Read More
