Until

If I could

 Hold onto

 Any handle

          Any grasp

         Or cliff cleft

 Could I drift into

       Unbecoming

        Into white space

               White noise

          Until a single breath

               Of wind

             Is expelled

        And we are punished

        Until

       We flirt in between

               This liminal space

        Until

        We speed up

      This particle accelerator

       Until

      We find

       The life so divine

       Until

       I find

       All my non perishables

       stolen

    10 years ago

     Until

    We find a semblance

       Of the garden

    And the fountain

     overflowed

     Until

     My head is

   Anointed with perfume

    And oil

  Until

     My resolve

    Is unsolved  

  Until we emerge

   From the crucible

      Unscathed

       Without an odor

    or smell

throw out

mercury rising
fever declining
making another revolution
around the world
tea cup ride overdrive
surrender to the currents
updraft
lifting out of shoes
oh fates be my guide
lockpick this heart
held captive
to the present
brainstorm
for a storm’s a brewin’
cast me a clue
throw out
all rules

Grounding

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

touch

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

Darkside

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

affirmation

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

           lonely

         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

            emotions

           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

                  ashes

               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

Short/ Long Term

get a spurt of adreneline
for the short term
a dopimine rush
sugar rush
click, flash, upload
oxytocin
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

humble

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

—humble

Lumps

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
