wrong as
wrong can be

if we don't

Face Off






Face Off

I am such
the clown

without the
greasepaint
to hide my face

but a clown
nonetheless

life of the party

always playing
to the crowd

a jolly distraction
from sadness

your melancholy
and mine

yes I said mine

for I hurt too

I know you
don't want
to hear this

so

I won't burden
you with my
pain

just please

don't minimize my problems

don't condescend my feelings

don't diminish my reality

and lay off
the over reacting rap

let me hurt

I'll work this out

time will heal me

though you'll never know

cause I won't let you see

the tears beneath

this smiley clown's face




Follies of the Father




Follies of the Father


Never saw
my Daddy cry

not a tear

not a choked
back sniffle

always told
me

crying a sign
of weakness

for women
and children only

REAL MEN

never ever
cry

tis a hard core
generation
thing

John Wayne
never ever
shed a tear
while he was
blowing away
bad guys

Dirty Harry's
steely eyes
never ever
cried
when his
partner
died

these childhood
lessons

stay with us

define and mold

who we are

therefore

I NEVER EVER CRY

even when my heart
swells with tears

I suppress and repress

cause

real men
never ever
cry

Now I know what
you're going to
say

it's the 21st Century!

tis OK for men to cry

macho athletes
well up after victory

even the President
gets weepy after tragedy

I envy men unafraid to be free

but I'm trapped 
in my Daddy's world

REAL MEN DON'T CRY

even though my Daddy
is now old and frail

his once 
strong body
starting to fail

when he dies

I won't cry

I will ache silently 

cause it would
dishonor him
and his life long 
belief that

REAL MEN DON'T CRY!!

Blankety Blank



Blankety Blank


Blank page

empty page

staring back


at my


blank

empty

face

dam my writer's block !!

tis a mess

cause
I be

obsessed

to the very core


of my

blank


empty

soul

to fill in
these

empty

blanks

since writing to
fill in 


my blanks


is my security 


blanket


from feeling

hopelessly

empty

Dippity Zippity Goo



Dippity Zippity Goo


Turmoil 
in
normal world!!!


clocks spinning
backwards

trees 
tap dancing

control

freak minister

senses 
situation
sinister

struggles
to regain
semblance

of order

too late


chaos at
the gate

we all
need
to let go

embrace
the new
abnormal
  
trust the
whirlwind
of insanity


loose future
calamities

unrestrained

BaLaNce AcCount



BaLaNce AcCount 


It really
does seem

this life 

of mine

is on 

a lay away
plan


I put down

as much
as I could


so they
could hold
it for me

until I figured
the riddle of 
me out 

thought by now

my life would 
start
making sense

come into focus

so I could
be

a well adjusted

member of the
humanity family

but I still
lack the 
resources

maybe I 
always will

perhaps 
the key
to 
mental stability

is

accepting 
yourself

and that

our accounts

may never
be 

paid in full

Glitter Glutter News




Glitter Glutter News


Hear ye! Hear ye!

we be modern day
town criers

mass media style

we got hyperbole
wrapped in hype


pretty poofy 
hair doos

playing the 
newsie part

reading fluff
off teleprompters

riding the
24 hour
news cycle

we are always on

we never sleep

for all eternity

lot's of time
to fill

so we

circulate
regurgitate


specks of events

that pass for news

inflate them
into today's
end of the world
crisis

we then

over analyze
and dissect

every angle

so you can 
pretend 
to be informed

so you can impress
your ignorant
friends

so you 
can be 
an honorary
newsie too



Simulated Stimulation



Simulated Stimulation


New love

text based

so damn
impractical

quite
impossible

half way 
across the
planet


guess it 

could be
real 

a big deal
kind of
love

that's if

you 
can love
someone


without
ever
touching
seeing
feeling

or
tasting
them


Maybe
just 


a silly
little

cyber crush

after all

Love Drops



Love Drops


And for 
my next
seduction

I choose you

cause 
I just know

I am
exactly

what you need

I synchronize
my strategy

flying in low 
under your
radar


you'll never
see me
coming


when I 
swoop in
and steal


your


sexual favors


I MEANT TO 
SAY


HEART!!!!

I'm sooooooo

adorable

but

not very
smart  :O

Homeland Insecurity



Homeland Insecurity


Muffled screams

trapped within
dungeon walls

this be where
our enemies
sing

extracting facts
we need
to know

dispensing
creative
justice 

A tortured soul

nailed 

to the wall

such the

bloody mess
is he

now part 

of the forgotten
scenery

nobody sees

nobody hears

if you were

to petition
to improve
his condition

and
treat him 
humanely

you will

replace him
on that wall

take his pain

for your
treason

So goes
the law


might makes
right

here in
Guantanamo

Fortunate Me



Fortunate Me


Feast or famine?

I choose feast

  
money can't buy 
happiness


really?

but it sure
can pay off
misery

terminate bills
upgrade thrills


wealth comes in
many currencies


our quest 
for fickle fortune
can be misery

matters not 

because


I'm rich
beyond
my wildest 
dreams

so long
as you

are with me

Chains of Love



Chains of Love


Here 
in Monogamy Land

we are only
allowed
one at a time

traditional
unconditional
dictator

of conventional
morality

if you dare
break 
monogamy rules

dramatic tragedy
ensues


tears will be shed

word bombs lobbed

pain and regret
wrapped in guilt

but  I ask you

why should

our hearts 
be restricted?


can we not
love more
than one
at a time?

with differing
intensities? 

Monogamy

absolute tyranny 

and a

lame tradition

My Best Friend




My Best Friend


I watch my TV
for
flat screen
reality

love my HD

high definition

magnifies
imperfections

even love
the commercials

keeps me
culturally
in tune

sometimes

I watch the news

so I can
understand
the
human condition

pretty faces
subtly
slant the world

biased bitches!

so

I don't believe
anything 
they say

who are they
anyway?


I will not jump 
when
they say leap

who are they 

anyway?

they be not me

that much I know

they want my
individuality

so they can
statiscally 
define me

and peddle
their wares

to our junkie
consumer
economy

who are they
anyway?

they

be 
the 
machine
