Cathedral
Streets come alive in neon pink at night
Sidewalks drink up rains remains
In alley ways in covered shadows
Tall buildings stand too close for comfort

The cracks between the swallowed light
Hold their sins together in a somber prayer

Concrete thoughts of heaven hang
Gothic dark...Read More

For few there are that would wander further

O sorrow doth linger and last,
injection of formaldehyde —
preservation of solitude 
on shroud swept cliffs — they call my name!

Yet again the door is being knocked
Yet again the door is being knocked
For ages it’s been closed
Who is there?
The Sun looks down
Breeze Halts!
Tulips raise their heads
But the Cascade___still singing like an indifferent Bee

Knock___ knock___ Knock! 
How persistent the knocking is!!
But who is there?
Its light from the...Read More

Shallow are the graves of all you remember 
With a covering of dead leaves 
Shades of brown and gold that time has rolled 
Made timeless and dreamlike 
Fragile pieces trees cannot keep 
Waiting for the hands of moments to brush...Read More

Happy V-day MOFO , Electropopdance-poppop-trapnu-goth pop

and its twisted and raw

my favorite god

Ode to self
Wine tears
Flowing through the contours of cheeks
To reach these valleys residing in heart
Listen
Let the echo jump into this abyss
Until it reverberates like a suicidal cry
And breaks like a rope 
Adamant on giving second chance to life
Cloud covered skin
Akin to those...Read More

New Stoneage
From a horror film it descended
From Red China where they eat anything
The virus their ing karma
It taught them a lesson and us too
But mostly the Red Chinese
And their rabid Communist red leadership
Culling them all and bringing collapse
Of the biggest state...Read More

Zom zon zombie gonna get you
Cull your body and eat your insides
Turn you into one of them
Monster of the night
Demon of the flesh
Not of the Christian world
Belonging to the night
All from the China virus
It was different from other viruses

It was true love, passionate and twisted,
But was, in fact, never consummated,
Those famous lovers who never existed,
But nevertheless are celebrated;
She was wild and wilful, headstrong, untamed,
She loved one man but married his rival,
The tragic outcome might on her be blamed,
Had...Read More

The monster I once loved
Imprisoned was i 
By false beauty light 
Fell down dead from fright
The man I cared for not a mon at all
But a devil wearing humans skin
Delighting in earthly pleasures
Offering cursed gifts with pretty treasures.
No man could be so cruel.

Those who think they’re whole never will be 
Because there’s no such thing ;
They will always be closed 
Because their souls are without holes

Only those with holes in their souls are open 
Let the other side in
Allow an uncontrolled seeping...Read More

La Mezquita
Massed crowds of all creeds jostle to enter

Inside cool air and dim light calms the soul

Eyes gaze around this spiritual centre

Built form and faith symbols create a whole

In the greatest mosque squats the Christian place

Two toned stacked arches on columns...Read More

Ode to Death
he who wields scythe aloft
to reap a withered and ageing crop
the harvest of the doomed and lost
who fell to their winter's frost

clenched so you may better feel the cold

There is a place, 
in the middle of nowhere... now. (hushed whisper) 
It is hot and cooking,
and yet...things are green. 
Nature has taken back, 
what man destroyed. 
Maybe not the way it should be, 
but maybe it does not matter,...Read More

There was a dear who had a ridge that she perched from
It was where she felt welcome 
Below there was a road 
Where cars must go.

If I was living in a fairytale,
That world we know as "Once-Upon-A-Time,"
And was a maiden golden-haired and pale,
My wishes would be only those sublime,
Honour and glory as their paradigm,
Perhaps to hear tell of a holy grail
That some chivalrous young knight...Read More

Places with no beginning....... have no end
Simply exist where others do not 
Fit nothing known
Are without edges or finality

They come from somewhere not here
From the never seen 
The never been 
Wombs uniquely fixed in bleeding blacks 

They have no time...Read More
