Stare Down




Stare Down

I've been shushed 
by better

been chastised
by wiser

been blasted

by stronger

but 


that gaze


you just 
threw
my way


devastates


looks can kill
looks can maim

my life
will never
be the same

End Game



End Game

Off in the
rapidly
diminishing
distance

the end 

of us all
is coming


relentlessly

advancing
on our 
once great
Empire

we tried to 
stop it

tried to 
delay it

destiny and fate
those bitch hounds

coming to
wreck the party

soon to be memory

brought down

by our own
arrogant
stupidity

Stick Dancing



Stick Dancing

Lonely
stick man

fancies


frustrated
stick girl


buys her
a drink


she concurs
for
she's lonely too


the evening
goes to 
her head


loosens
up
her

inhibitions

desires
released
in the back seat

she does
down on
his wood


up goes

stick man's
joystick

too much

pressure

he snaps in 
two


boo hoo
hoo


stick girl
still
frustrated

Hot Front



Hot Front


Storm clouds
roll in

take cover!

force of nature
blowing hard
over me


this was unexpected

not prepared
for her force 

I resist
she persists


I concede


She proceeds
to ravage
me


now my body
belongs
to her 
totally

next time
I will ride
and not
resist
her whirlwind

Telescopic Droppings




Telescopic Droppings


I'm reading 
the obituaries
short story
tragedies

death check


old peoples hobby
morbid curiosity 

sadly saw

a past pal 
of yesterday
passed away


we'd lost touch
in the drifts of time


use to be close
this dead man 
and I

no big blow up
or juicy
confrontation

we just
disconnected

the deceased
past pal 

memory

of course


be me

Iron Fisted




Iron Fisted 


Rules

we got em

we need em
we enforce em

structure parameters


boundaries to contain


control the sheep

 
We CRUSH those

who stray

who dare
not to 
obey


We reject 
and deny
your timid
protestations


GET IN LINE!

GET IN LINE!!
GET IN LINE!!!

Let There Be Light




Let There Be Light 


Sunday mourning

church bells 
ring hollow

calling the
congregation
to bear witness
to the latest
stained glass disgrace

the dogma sinner
is brought in

head bowed

to be excommunicated
by the c
orrupt
bishop
clad in a 
pointy white hat


gold crucifix

on his neck

lace black
thong panties
beneath
his robe
of hypocrisy


Mother Church
look within

pray for all sinners

starting with your own

fiat lux !!



Seance Dance



Seance Dance


Tap tap tap

table top
symphony

direct from 
the afterlife


holding hands

doing the
seance dance


spirits enter
our dimension

through
cosmic doors


earthbound souls
interactively link
with the great
beyond

charade you say?


perhaps maybe

but no harm

playing a game
we to want play

if death is a door
to the other side

let's knock on it
and see who answers

Dream Domain




Dream Domain



When you 
find yourself
stuck in a place
you don't want to be


don't despair

imagination the key

close your eyes


find the sweet spot
of imagination


and reside in
the daydream
for awhile

Abra Cadaver




Abra Cadaver


Now appearing
on the great 
global stage

limited engagement
closing soon

The Great Garbo
Magic Show


here we go


PAY ATTENTION!!!

now you see him
now you don't


all a smoke screen

invisible
puppet strings

all an illusion


just like us


watch your step

leaving the
theatre of
the blurred

Light Fantastic





Light Fantastic


Darkness black
void of light

heartache
regret

darkness black

nothing seen


life without

vision

is life
without hope

so we need
to see

we need to
believe

do not despair

send up a flare

and let 

the world
know


you are
there

Out of Place



Out of Place


Art gallery
picture show

pretty scenes
purely
serene

tarantula
crawls up 
the wall


oblivious to
it all

people scream

women flee


all because
it looks so
creepy


security arrives

tarantula dies 

so unfair
to be 
stereotyped

Daily Value



Daily Value


Tis written
in a book of
note

ashes to ashes
dust to dust


we all be
for a limited
time only

ALL OF US

we are fated
to be citizens

of the clouds
someday

looking
down 
on the ground
we once tread


before time
rose up and

stamped us
dead

so live
each
precious day
like it may
be your last

cause it 
just may












Displaced Mutant



Displaced Mutant


Triangulated me

not fitting in
to any 
defined holes

not of similar mind
or culturally inclined
to the normal side

so weary of this
strange charade

gonna jump
off this planet


ride
the super nova express
to another dimension

where no one

knows me

where no one
judges me

where I can 
cease being

the alien

Stunted Love


Stunted love


My current love
Miss Perception

my elusive
charlatan


proclaims her
love for me
for all eternity

if I could 
simply define  


and somehow
justify

how a selfish guy 
like me


could love
anyone else

but myself

I had to let her go

cause I do not know
how to give her
what she needed 

now I be loveless
since I broke
up with myself





Out of Solitary




Out of Solitary


We are not alone 
in the Universe

We are not alone
on this Earth

We are not alone 
We are not alone


Open your 
despondent eyes

look around

Even in the

worst of times 

you are not
ALONE

Butterfly Ride




Butterfly Ride


Welcome to
the garden

we got 
fun and games 

butterfly 
looking fine


evening out
with the girls


flower hopping

cruising the scene

neon light show

visually attracts

flies into the bright
ZAP goes the night


butterfly autopsy


death by
electricity
