Separation Anxiety...

Looking beyond yourself
at a given situation,
removing yourself
from the Equation,
turning to a blank page,
tuning in to another station
to view Reality
without the Duality,
the Ying and the Yang
and the Banners that hang
loosely in musty halls,
playground laughter
and theatre catcalls;
little wonder that it all
is too much at times...
It is Distance
that gives Perspective,
not unlike
The Prime Directive,
Live and Let Live,
help when and where you can
is not so hard to understand
but is it Man's Vanities
he imposes against Humanity
that makes him blind
so he that he does not
want to hear or see
The Truth
before his Eyes;
so much easier
to live a Lie...

Gearing Up (Battle Armour)...

Winter's Solstice,
what do you most miss;
in a Childhood,
gone all too soon,
to the Stark Realities
of Forlorn Youth,
Ravages of  Time,
Savages on the Seven Line
 crossing from DisCivilization
to the HinterLand
where Beasts of Color still roam
and the aromas alone
will transport you there;
changing Countries,
even Hemispheres
by the smells in the Air;
Cumin, Paprika, Curry Powder
as the Music changes also
but the Beat,
always the same,
Rhythmic, Feral,
 not the sterile mayonnaise
of this Misbegotten Age...
Rage for but a moment
at this stage
perhaps best to lie Dormant
and watch the Maddening Crowd,
the Apathetic Herd,
whilst I turn my PlowShares
into sharp Swords;
the Army of the Lord
will have need of such...

Take it Up ( Your Lot in Life, Your Cross to Bear)...

Divine Madness,
Infinite Sadness,
Situations ludicrous
for what can frustration do,
but increase the Disbelief
in the way
things have come to be;
in the Pomp and Circumstance,
see the Gallows Twitching Dance
no one seems
to want to understand,
All want to be lead,
some by the nose,
some by the hand;
Void of Purpose,
your Purpose is the Void
in a Soul destroyed,
betrayed by misuse;
what sorry excuse
will you give when asked
for the Reason
you stood by
and did Nothing?...
He among you
who is without Sin,
a Good place to begin;
can you take it on the chin,
take one for the team,
can you lay your Life down
"Here it is, I don't need it,
I will always have my Soul",
do you have that much Control?...

Measuring Jerusalem...

Measure for measure,
the Accounting has begun;
matter not where you stand ,
of no avail would it be
for you to turn tail and run,
too late for Good deeds
with Evil intent done
for the Scales of Justice
will take the portions
and find the Worth
of Everyone
and those found lacking,
the slack jawed,
the Fools laughing
as the House burns around them,
will become as Shadows,
will fall like Sparrows
fleeing the Hawk's talons
as the Tempests rages
and the Rains fall in gallons,
turning Mountains into Plains,
then, it will be too late
for you to change your Mind...

Not all comes
to those who wait,
the Seed of Doubt
grow into the Fruit of Faith;
look to your Hear,
realize before it's too Late
that what you're waiting for
is within you to Open,
you only need to realize
you need more...

It All Flows...

Are we changed
by Circumstance;
is it as simple as that,
is it all left to chance;
Life, Love, Romance,
all just Happenstance?...

I think not;
there is much more,
what might lie ahead,
what waits in store
depends upon
the avenues you explore,
if you answer the knock
upon the door;
the Choice is yours...

Every Stone cast
into the Water
affects the surface
but sinks to the bottom,
never to rise
(no surprise)
but the Tree that grows
along the banks
draws Nourishment
and is Content
to watch the Water,
knowing it,
Loving it
and Happy
for its company...

Danny Flynn...

Coins tossed
into the ring,
tuxedos instead of togas,
but it's still the same thing,
ye gods,
the Inhumanity;
does anyone remember
Danny Flynn?...

If you Believe,
if you know you're Right,
you can lose
and still win
if you can get
one person to See;
be Free,
Be True to yourself
for the is
nothing else...
When the Lord
calls your Name,
will you lift your Head?...

Manifest (The Book of LIfe)...

Be Angry,
but let it be
Righteous Anger,
Sin not in your Fury
for you are not
Judge and Jury,
there may be
other sides
tot the story;
even Solomon
in all his Wisdom
and his Glory
would listen well,
would think
before he acted;
look to all the Facts,
find the Truth
in what you see,
 be Assured
in what you Believe
for the Lord will tell you
what you kneed to Know
before you do
what you need to do...

The World Awakens...

The City of Light
ablaze in an Evil glow
Satan's laughing
with delight;
Mick was spot on
all the those years ago
but here we are
and there it remains;
The Painful Truth...
Of what use
to rant and rail;
this Veil of Tears is short
be not caught
or worse,

Not an Eye for an Eye
but Righteous Anger,
the first letter in Death
turns to Danger...

Beware, Isis,
bemoan your Fate,
you have no Divided us,
you have United us,
now too late
realize your Mistake...

Job's Children...

In the blink of an Eye
you're left Reeling
Pounding the ground
how is is I am so beset,
what Indignity
have I not yet endured?"...
Lord, knows
I have had more
than my fair share
of Misery and Agony,
of One Step Forward
and Two Back,
Always hating myself
for the attributes I lack,
the Baddest of the Bad,
the Saddest Sack,
Innocent of the Crime
that have placed
me once again
on Torquemada's Rack
not willing to plead guilty
to return to
the same World...

All Aboard...

Cleansing Rain,
changing Seasons
Rise and Fall
Life and Death
spend not your Time
searching for Reason
for Man
has become UnNatural
the Freight Train's
cars open wide
and The Herd tumbles out.\,
bumbling towards
the Cattle Call;
Sightless Seers,
Flightless Birds,
wings clipped at Birth
with little
(if any)
Taught to Despise
Free Thought,
Hoping the Lies they bought
were not at
too High a Price...

Watch Your Step...

always Learning
in that,
a Turning away
from what is not for me,
not this it
was not always seen,
it was just
too much to bear,
almost too much to believe
One can Care for Another
until the Other
Discovers for Themselves
to Care for Themselves...
Till then,
upon the dusty shelf
you will sit
with forgotten Tomes
of Alexander's Knot
and The Fall of Rome
with Lessons Lost as well
for God did not create Hell,
we each make our own...

Acid Tears...

I have Sympathy
for Satan,
the Original Lost Soul,
who thought
(perhaps too much
or vainly)
he might have
some semblance of Control
when his Being,
his Existence,
as ours,
is beyond our
beyond our grasp,
not ours to claim
but to lay at the feet
of the Father,
try to complete
our small part,
our small role
 in the Mystery,
the Marvel 
of the Celestial Design
meant to teach us
how to Live...

Jezreel Street (Ghetto Gazing, Hearing the Hood)...

No longer
any Chance
in my Life,
there is Reason, 
Method to this Madness,
Earth filled with Sadness
as the billion
different Worlds spin,
each on its own Melancholy Moon,
Barren, Void,
Destroyed to Ruin,
Lost in Lonely Orbits
about the Dead Sun
that give no Warmth...
Fields laying Fallow,
Sheep Lost in Withered Pastures
Grandeur of SkyScrapers
Lost among the Shadow
they themselves cast;
Shepherds have become
the Last to Know
but the First to ask
for More 
(always More)
than their Fair Share...
Sept. 25, 2015

Apia Avalon...

Fiery Trail
Reds and Oranges
with SunSet's
soft Glory;

lays the Story
of Fading
but, somehow,
at the same Time,
Boring into your Soul,
Raising you over
the Knoll
to where the
Barge to Avalon awaits,
 and the White Witches
with Gossamer skirts
and Lace Bodices
with Excalibur,
awash in Incandescence
as Night Pulls Shade
from its mantle
and covers Earth
in Sleep yet again...

Sept. 25, 2015

Spirit of Wood...

Towards Track
turns the Breeze
as my shins tingle
and humming
fills my knees;
air crackles,
a Vibrant Voice
beckons me above it all,
beneath me...
Pointless Posturing,
Nurturing Nothing,
siding against One Another
instead of United
in Common Cause...

Saving Souls
at the Expense 
of a Life,
as if the Empathy
is Good enough
but Thought without Action
is a Flower
without Bloom...

Sept. 26, 2015

Rue de Regret (A Knight's Tears)...

Need a pair of Greaves
for when amid
Branches and Leaves,
Brambles, Bushes
and Old Growth Trees
tend to bark my shins
and scuff the knees
of my pants,
but therein
lies the Romance,
the Element of Surprise,
Age tells,
it never Lies
though not always
(to ourselves we Lie the most)
we are
(most of us)
all our own Ghosts,
Shadows of Ourselves,
Lagrime Corpore,
Pale Comparisons
to what may have been
there lies the Sin...
Sept. 21, 2015

Shine, then Rise...

A Blank Page,
never feel my Age,
always, still,
the Youngest
Kid on the Block;
no Concept 
of Time or Money,
no Eye on the Clock
(that's funny,
considering Time
is of the utmost);
at least
a morning toast
or a plain bagel
to plant the coffee
coursing through me,
a medium Turbo,
Light and Sweet,
Day's begun...
Where starts your Day;
mine long before
first Light of Dawn,
ere the Cardinal announces
and Earth bounces
from the rumble of
the Asphalt Cutters
miles away
as Manifest Destiny
and Eminent Domain
come to play in my head,
wondering what 
might have grown here
 instead of:
Rotting Tracks
and Crumbling Factories
Rusted Rails,
Faded Memories
of the Glory that was Rome,
crazed Emperors,
Divine Comedies;
it's no joke,
or it is
but the joke is on you...
You Decide
not to go along,
placidly chewing your cud
or hiding,
crying you couldn't;
all it takes
is to have a little Pride...

Fresh Faced,
Angel hair
and Eagle Eyes,
Alert and Awake,
no putting a Scare
into this Girl
for she holds the World
in her Open Arms
and Open Heart;
her parents
must have known from the start,
Fools they were to
try to tear asunder
the Natural Beauty,
this Marvelous Wonder
put on Earth,
not to Take,
but Give,
not to get Educated
but to Learn and Live...

Shine on, Sweet Girl
as if you have a choice
but we all do
and you answered, 
in a Voice that Sings...

Sept. 26, 2015

Take Heed (II)...

Five cars long,
not including Locomotive,
Silver Surfer
shaking Earth 
and rattling
railroad gravel
as Crows cry out,
bound for Derby",
yards behind,
in Slipstream's Embrace,
almost Incandescent,
Black-Winged Honor Guard
under Chalk-Colored Blue Sky,
with Cotton Candy Clouds
turning into a Herd of
White Buffaloes,
grazing among the Azure Hues...

No small clue
to the Existence,
regret not your Resistance,
be glad you may still be saved...

Sept.26, 2015

Fairly Obvious...

Word splitters,
Lie spitters,
uttering UnTruths 
they have come to Believe;
no, not Believe
but Follow
lest the Hollow Ring 
to their Words
increase the faint
Echo of Truth
within the Lie
for that is a Lie
in and of itself;
a Refusal,
Going Along,
not Participating,
no Perusal
for it is easier
to Live another's Life
than to decide yours...
Rise above,
surprise yourself;
you are Greater 
than you know
but only if  you Believe...

Wednesday, September 16, 2015


but the same,
then, is it 
that has changed;
not the Air,
though it smells sweeter,
not the Moon
or the Stars
or the Sun,
they are still hung
upon the Celestial Tapestry
separating us
from the Gods,
Great and Small,
those forgotten 
in crumbling ruins
on vine-covered jungle walls
where Panther lurks
and Python crawls...
my Way,
the Day,
show me the Way
to a Home
I've never known;
the Time has come
for me to live Alone,
to see if i can bear myself
to see if i can spare myself
a little Time
to gather myself
for the Battles yet to come...

Clean Break...

speaks of it,
no Mystery,
the Bible foretells of it
why should I
have to spell it out for you
when it was writ
for all to See
in the Millennia
before you and me?...
You know the Truth of this;
what Need for Justice,
Cold Courts,
where Vengeance not Wisdom
is dispensed,
where Less and Less is Learned
and More is Lost,
more minds
tossed into the Fire,
more Minds turned
away from the Simple Truths,
the Little Voice
reminding you,
not chiding you
of the Way to go
you already know
but allow your Fears
to hold you back...
Break Free from yourself,
accept your Faults
as well as your Virtues
for the always outnumber them;
move beyond,
move along,
there are no
Innocent Bystanders here...
Sept. 12, 2015

It's Just You...

Think for yourself,
Believe in yourself,
hold True to your Beliefs
or find a better Way
to Live your Life
for all its Strife
and Suffering
within this Veil of Tears
One needs buffering;
how the ears ring
in the Midst of the Tempest,
the Maddening Crowd,
where the Loudest
say the least
and if you Turn the Other Cheek
the Reality is
Society will Judge you Weak
and still more Sorrow
will you meet...
for what's True,
Believe in better,
Prepare, Persevere
is how to withstand
the inclement weather;
look before you Leap,
Think before you Speak,
Pray and Thank God
before you Sleep
and Praise
the Light of Day
if it finds you...
Sept. 14, 2015

Fly True...

Watch the Arrow
as it nears its Apex;
seems to almost
catch its Breath
with determined face,
plunging towards Earth;
Helical, Mystical,
Spiritual fletching,
stretching, straining,
no Time to explain,
must be off and on my way
for I've been too long astray
and the Time is right
to do what I was meant for...
Metaphors against
Closed Doors,
look at the pretty bauble,
ah, now you've bought
half the story
and if that compels you
wonder about more,
no harm, no foul,
no Irritable Bowel Syndrome
from keeping it all in
once again,
there lies the Sin
as when you never Begin
when you Believe Compassion
is enough;
wrong, Brother,
it is only in the Action
lies the Love;
one Thought
will not change a moment
but one move
might save the Day,
or the World...
