MY RECENT POSTS

I am Clarence Hellmold.
I knew I was old when I could hear the waterfall at the edge of my world.
And the currents around me were speeding up.
I am now most aware of the passing of all things.
That all things pass must have been man's first revelation.

KINGDOM OF THE GRAVE


My soul did cross your spirit
Amid the great crusade of youth,
To be entombed near it,
Behind the sealing stone of truth,
Renewed for forty years and forty dying,
With each kind compassion,
Recycling bloody claw and tooth,
My God I try to fashion
Around my beaten heart, uncouth
In blasphemyRead full post »

I LOVE MY WIFE


I love my wife
Forever will she be
The treasure of my life
Inspiring me
With no Ambition's knife
With naught for quantity
Beyond the realm
Of her desire

My heart does whelm
My inner choir
To spare me silently
All the senseless strife
If alone I be
With self AmbitionRead full post »

 WAITING FOR THE NEXT MOMENT



Look around
It is all a flux of chemicals upon the face of the earth
Like acne
Everything arises and demises
Nature is vain
Changing her attire every moment
For whom?
For what mirror?
For awhile we spin
Like the red spot on Jupiter 
Then we land on the darkRead full post »

I IMAGINE JESUS IN HELL



I Imagine the rich outside the law
I Imagine the poor rioting.
I Imagine what the middle class does between their daydreams that they can become rich and their nightmares that they can become poor.
I Imagine guns.
I Imagine every middle class citizen holding a gun as the onlyRead full post »

MY HEART IS A HAUNTED HOUSE



I died when you would not be mine.  Like a ghost I could no longer get a grip.  I still cannot grasp the grave space you left behind.  I hover there.
I make sounds to others until they scream.  I rot but I have not aged.  I am stillRead full post »

IN THE VALLEY OF YOUR EYES

IN THE VALLEY OF YOUR EYES

Do I echo in the valley of your eyes?
My spirit is not here with me.
In the Walmart parking lot my too too solid flesh melts.

You are frozen in my every moment.
To you I have commended my soul,
