Don’t forget

this focal point

when all reality seems to collapsing

hold on

to these hand you’ve once held

take  an inventory

of your feats of strength


until reality can be ascertained

let x’s and o’s fall freely

stop contriving with pinpoint precision

because God’s arms

cannot be twisted

feels like this vertigo stopped

and has stopped at position

melt off door knobs

and shatter the ceiling

you say you want me
that you could always outdraw me
I am everything you wanted
but nothing you needed
I am not the man I really am
nor the man I’m going to be
burn a cigarette hole through my eye
bring my cape, mask, and jacket
shield the gaze of your sunflower daughters
I am an incorruptible shadow
hopping rooftops
I am full of potential
because the monster that hides in men
is crawling out of me
so save your tears for a rainy day
no one will come to save you
or look for you
if you don’t want to save yourself
because the greatest enemy
isn’t nazi germany
but the darkside of me

swamp lands

it wouldn’t matter
even if you were sober
drenched in sweat
sharpen this wet stone
always accident prone
beware the ides of March
when I come around the col-de-sac
a myth transcending this body
larger than life or death
towering over me in a foreboding way
we are only witnessing to such winds
wavering and weaving webs of translucent truth cast on knife edge
severe all remaining bonds of untruths
of false pretenses and placates
mark me a man on a lam
fleeing every unkempt shadow flooding the swamp lands
where we wrestle with God and the devil

want all this affirmation

 in this filtered concoction

go about our days without challenge

  reinforce our world view

     the apotheosis of philosophies

     even without self-reflection

     all preconceived notions hung on that linchpin

   get bored


         throw it out

           draw attention

             feign humility

             draw insanity

            multifold motivations

           perpetual incongruent

          know a little about everything

          except our own pulse

         stop commodizing my


           my need for affirmation

           my need to change the world

           my need to be admired

           my need to be useful

           my need for attention

            come tear me apart

             reduce me to


               help me

             find a shadowy reflection

          burnt on the fingerprints of a newborn

            coursing through the life of the umbilical cord

                   unmake me, smash me

                    so this hurricane can piece together a jigsaw puzzle

            Tether me to your heart  again

The doe

the doe wandered in
with a paper thin skin
glassy eyes fragile, crackable
a string memories, unravel
and sometimes break and multiple
what twisted caramel karma
this gossip a dirty cataract
it ain’t gospel
dreamt of his kiss
reclining on a park bench
imparts to you assurance
you wish you put to sleep the lion
in the midst of puncutuated pain, in drained monochromatic days
in squeezing questions, doubts, rage, resentment,
in potentials, disappointments
into manageable thought bubbles
releasing wondering if we will survive
or be ever healed

but maybe we’ll be more human
find a connection
with another human who listens
and hears

Short/ Long Term

get a spurt of adreneline
for the short term
a dopimine rush
sugar rush
click, flash, upload
bonding to the dissipating
fall for the maniquines
coupling with a ghost
perform as the harlot
for more then dozen
gouge out my eyes and throw it away
oh you want it physical
up the ante to critical
hell is  digital
with everything accessible
at my finger tips
but didn’t God touch us
and not give us a touch screen
live for the short term
spurn the long term

shutdown, sleep, hibernate
black out, unplug
I wanna live
and breath
for more than an upvote
for more than a like

more than a digital clone

a curiousity
pins drop in succession
a rumination of distractions
carefully poised for picking
individually sold for sinking
a matter of an overexposure to light
a melancholy overattachment to nothing
forty days, forty nights
what a strange rite
“multiply” he tempted
“simplify” I countered
finding balance in both chaos
and order

no sea to shining sea
these curtains will fall
like the Berlin wall
see a ghost cowering in the corner
I’ll be grind into dust
by the powers that be
but they’ll never take
an ounce of your true identity
oh my life
oh my soul
why have you abandoned me?
why now doubt
and turmoil
these thoughts coil

and make us

Maybe I get more depressed than you think

you flutter those lids and i’ll be wafting away

say it like you thought it would matter

say it like you wrought enough armor

I’ll pretend that I’m listening

while we do a bit of soul searching

what kind of glue holds us together

does it weight us down like a fetter?

we can waste some time

rewinding cassette tapes crimes

and watch these sure hearted faces fade

but dial down on my fiery presence

I wanna open my heart and the floodgates

but I’m not sure how  to be brave

I don’t wanna avoid  this anymore

and be a double edged blade

you’re just drilling all these doors

and me with these breakneck confessionals

we  get used to lumps nesting in our throats
