Those Slithering Serpents Of World's Hidden Abyss

Through pleasant meadows they slither and soft hiss
pushing down nubile flowers as they go
they of dark, giver of serpentine kiss,
sowers of blackest curse that hatred grows,
a malignant force, masquerading as Light
of corruptible hearts, beasts...Read More

Condense versions that affected the times,
Immense variants that scoped his pleasures,
Florence immersed unravel a mentor,
Propense expounds at immortal measures.

Haul labeled abstract impressionist art,
Gall at pouring, splashing, horizontal,
Call, was his ardor, loved beyond his heart.

Its Getting Late
The darkness is drawing closer
The number of days lived provides the light
How we’ve chose to live in each moment
Has become the summation – the totality of our lives

Obsessively focused on past experiences
Extremely anxious of what’s to come
Our existence - fighting...Read More

Premium Member ReLearning Manifest Destiny
What did you learn to play
in school today?
Hedging future winning bets
against lost devolving yesterday

I learned religious history
of manifest colonizing destiny,
Responsibility to over-rule healthy integrity,
Authority to addictively enslave
our lesser prey,
womanfest cooperative destiny,
without duplicity.

How is such sad destiny most powerfully manifest?

Premium Member Contamination Nation
Daily we face different kinds of aggravation,
but there is one type which by man has its causation,
and it merits an immediate termination.
But because of modern “civilization”
and the greed of many a corporation,
it’s doubtful we shall have the consolation
of ending modern...Read More

How Do I
Back of the room I sat.
An eye on every rat.
Trying to do math.

The date is a Summation-

Number 1 is three times nine,
Number 2 is even and prime.

twenty seventeen.

The Eagle eye for chewing gum.

Intimate Conversation
No deadbolt here;
No bell informing
Of presence--
My echo returned,
Calling me
An awakening voice…

Enter, I beckon;
Child of mine
Long before conception--
Loving you
Even when still
and though heartless--
Infant Summation
yet to be christened--
Brought forth shapeless,
Self of infinite imagination-
Dreaming: "To be or not to be?'
all potential, ever expandable--
Immeasurable...Read More

But approached the jury in a manner unhurried.

He began, his eyes bright, his brow unfurrowed.
