I feel the turn of fickle stars in my palms,
wrenching their way out,
challenging the ambition of a sinner’s grasp.
It all falls loose;
sand at the feet of eternal eyes,
staring back into the shadows of memory.
Dreams struggle for breath,
suffer desperation, lack of color.
And in their whisper I squint like
an old man trying to find his way
back to the trail’s head.
But in these woods I have no bearing;
no point of reference, only empty hands left wanting,
too arthritic to hold any sort of luster
or salt of tomorrow’s promise.
And so, I am left to wait…
Suspect to the charm of a menacing horizon
that promises nothing but a burning reminder
of what I could not hold onto.

Save me from this charged mound,
swirling in mundane cynicism’s break
where styrofoam vultures circle overhead
and snap their beaks with convoluted grace.
Pull my flesh back,
and cauterize my need to wonder;
I know there’s nothing out there anyway
…except the swallow of disenfranchised freedom
and innovated misunerstandings.
Replace these organs with the silt of
a sleepy eyed river, so when it all finally flows
you can feel me between your toes
…Where you always wanted your
lover to make his bed.

Religion is for people who are afraid of going to hell. Spirituality is for those who have already been there.

Hey everybody…just wanted to let you all know that I’m still alive haha. Got moved out to the new pad, and all is well, just extremely hectic…and apparently they don’t have DSL internet service anyyyywhere out there…which is insane to me…I’m not that far off the map! I may have to bite the bullet and get satellite internet, which I always heard didn’t work well…We shall see. Miss y’all…I’ll report back soon. Much love.
may my mind stroll about hungry
and fearless and thirsty and supple
- A compliment
- A story
- Why you follow me
- If you met me what would you do
- A cute message
- One thing you want to tell me
- One thing you want to know about me
