- I attune to the power of words, how they are used, spoken, and written. Some things I refuse to write about, because therein is a painful memory, or a sweet so much that a tear falls yet again. The very process of writing to me is to possess. To embrace. To touch. And the fact of it - the writing itself - makes it all the more indelible, so concentrated upon, and the piece of spirit that emerges was the point of doing the piece in the first place, but you did not know that when you began.

have i given you reason to fear me
by the things that come out of my mouth?
do you quake at the thought of relinquishing
the familiar of your stumblings and doubts?
i can only recognize you, my sweet friend
i can’t be inside your skin.
but some/… Read full post »
there is nothing verbal between us now;
no glue, and no cement.
oh, sometimes you spoke, and i listened,
but i only heard your intent.
a strange thing happens in insanity,
you survive by ouncing down
what people who try you play you
are trying to get around.

i don’t think i was the one driven to distraction.
i don’t think i was the one to stop interaction.
in fact, my action was laid on the table;
i spoke my piece, said what i was able.
but i was met with a reprimand.

i saw the Deevil the other day -
i recognized his tattoo
he thought he was obscured to me;
didn’t know that i knew.
it’s ancient, and it’s well-known,
but only in circles that have contact,
the ones that summon, believing or not,
his likeness, his pre/… Read full post »

a day came that dawned with questions,
questions about how to sustain
across a distance of mileage,
when inside we are so the same.
the instant jump to “let’s have it!” -
led to dovetailing days and nights,
we seemed to intuit each other,
the same vi/… Read full post »
(Or Uncoupling, As The Case May Be.)
i’ve sent you so many missives.
i’ve not held back my tides
and now i am thinking that i should;
for i might have overstepped the lines.
i am trying to find the distance,
to be like ether instead of a body.
for i want to s/…
what do you do when your life falls apart
over something you said or you did?
how do you recover, assuage the guilt,
the remorse and regret of the sin?
i think about the Fight Club,
how the guy wailed down on his Self,
maybe that is what i should do,/… Read full post »
where do you stand when you have a stance?
and where do you stand if you speak it?

thank you for the bandages,
but i’m just not sore any more
and thank you for the salve you were,
it opened up my door.

and i suddenly shifted my/… Read full post »

The world’s a corral,
in a long, sweet pasture
that I get to visit you in.
I never want to lose track of you,
or your sins.
Though I met you at a crossroad,
and I even told you so,
we both began
a lover’s dance --
the caress of the recognized soul.

Some come home, some do not.
And sometimes maimed and blamed.
They try to come back and assimilate,
but it doesn’t always happen that way.
We sent them off with the kiss of death,
stole running from their souls.
So they ran in fields and they crawled abo/… Read full post »
Wind in my hair,
the night screaming by;
bugs on my glasses,
tears in my eyes,
making a blur
of oncoming headlights.
Weaving in the traffic,
tryin’ to make some time
people in cars
swear as we go by.
But we’re the critters
that buzz by their eyes
and who/… Read full post »
It must be great
to be a guy
with a bike.
Even one of those greasy ones
with the beer bellies.
I like to follow them
down the road . . .
Side by side,
lookin’ at the scenery,
feeling it flying by.
Feeling your buddy’s vibes.
They turn to one a/… Read full post »
i’ve seen the bikers out today
i worked their convention
and i watched how they play.
it’s so sad to me,
what trappings one needs
to depict a rebel,
a Self that they see.

tails and in braids,
that the winds won’t/… Read full post »
I don’t engage in rough sex
or talk of that kind
because i know that tenderness
is the hardest thing to find.
it’s a role play that enacts
all the aberrations
of those who can’t touch,
or know the finesse of elation.
let them shimmer, glimmer, fade.
Let me open heaven’s gate.
Let me step into my fate
with no regret and no remorse
for all the things gone by before.
Let my heart be open, willing;
let my eyes see through the/… Read full post »

... for you are the calm
in the sea i have chosen.
limbs moving free,
no longer frozen.
the where of the Self,
the found bravado,
in your even voice,
not like mine, staccato.
so i meld and i melt,
to blend in with trees,
the inner self found,
the vision of Me.
