notes in the snow

Piano notes in a midnight snow, And the sun is down now – Oh, where did it go? Warmth no longer hits tender skin, I stopped long ago – and can’t begin – I’m changing, an in-flux man, Tired soul who never did the best he can. Always looking for something With a blind dark eye – Can’t find the way, my... Sign in to see full entry.

The truest endeavor of a poet Is to analyze the human condition - Oh, poets, if you but knew what condition My condition was in. Scribbling scribes, Bleeding from fingertips – Knowing from where the blood comes, But never knowing where it goes. Who claims the pages that Drift now lonely in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Hollow.

It’ s Philadelphia and the bar is now deserted, His head is in his hands, Listening to the last close of the door – Aging music twitches his tired ears And he thinks about the journeys of his life, Contemplating the carcasses in the ashtray. Thought he could do it, And everyone always said he would... Sign in to see full entry.

Cadet Bodhisattva

Quite unlike the ancient young prince, we need not be taught what it is In the morning I woke up The sun had not risen And my mind and body craved it Prematurely In the late late summer night we lay down in the dew and the darkness sighed it in. Death is the coming home after a long day when in... Sign in to see full entry.

As baby my head was anointed – Cold water guaranteed my soul’s safety, Grew a bit and mind anointed too – Taught to be more like Him, Less like You. Be more like Jesus – And that I may want to be, But only a charlatan can preach, Pulpits stole their air from me – Jesus thought that love would make... Sign in to see full entry.

For as long as I can remember.

For as long as I can remember, All I’ve dreamt of is roots – I get too cold this December, Can’t navigate the ladders and shoots. Oh, but the child in me cries, As the man begs for dry eyes – I guess life can’t be a breeze for me, I’m too prone to failure, too eager to be free. Everyone, they see... Sign in to see full entry.

it's warm inside

It’s warm inside, But there’s a draft hitting toes, Snow’s outside – blanketing – Erasing what everyone knows. I walked in it, Leaving footprints Only to be filled in with cold, The marks we make so trivial – Oh, I’m too young to feel this old. Stood once in a bathroom, With a mirror in front and...

judges

Let’s bring out the judges, Expose them for who they are! You and me they tried to trample, To snuff out all these burning stars! Oh, fuck the pulpit – I’ve had enough of the doctrine, My brain aflame, insane, They’re pumping bodies full of toxin. Stop impeding my progress With this fabric of... Sign in to see full entry.

quicksand

Always loved looking to open water – But the wind and the spray, They make me want to look away. Loved the rush of new horizon – But when the rays pierce with no sound, I look scared towards the ground. Used to dream about Full sails and strong gales, Only ever wanted freedom, But didn’t know when I... Sign in to see full entry.

whereami?

Where am I! Oh, I’m beyond myself. Where are you! Oh, you’re begging for help. Where’s the answer! Oh, God left it on the shelf. Sign in to see full entry.
