Amends

calm down
keep around
it’ll be around
let out the dog
walk around town
keep on humming and singing your song
make amends
don’t pretend
reach out
for hands
in this life amok
run unto you run out of breath
some day
one day
you will be embraced
not just a foretaste
believe me for one moment
surrender on the ground
move on
forget her
let go of it
and become all that you are
let the bells of freedom ring and reign
in your heart
in your marrow
in your mind
no need to pretend

Library

I am that sharp intake breath
exhale a gasp escaping
creeping down the rabbit hole
the mist unveiling invitation
shadowy figures cast on wet concrete
too late to shirk from
the alien ship
descending into Sheol
wandering in a slumber for 30 years
succumb to disappearing acts
children on the play ground
resurrects infallible innocence
a strong memory undercurrent
derails me from cyclical consequences
shock therapy out of stupor
hiking further
towards the coast land
towards a light house
find cover and rest in a library
mind melding with every tome

The Moon

we communicate by
echolocation
and vibration
and telepathy
can you sense me
from across the globe
surpassing time and space
do you desire me?
as I desire you?
could I encapsulate you
a vagrant spirit
a fragrant offering rising to the heavens
or am I a daft, witless boy
harpooning the moon?

Futures

recline back
and wander
begin to ponder
What am I?
How did I get here?
some patchedwork rabbit
with a stick and a carrot
I am lost
on the oily surface of a sea of dreams
swimming down but always resurfacing with poignant buoyancy
hysterical laughter dress ideals
the absurdity of alternative realities
like a child enthralled at battalions of bubbles
gravity defying crystal balls
futures vaporizing in one single
touch
