2015 Space Odd We

Here in the fourth dimension
of galactic existence   

we be parallel Universe tripping

Atomic overlay

Antimatter souffle

Reverse Earth
in the invisible
continuum mirror

The trip ends

as they always seem to do

and now we find ourselves

lost in far out nowhere

Sound Proof

In the void of space
the silence is pure

A black hole of sound

Nothing around

to pollute the peace
we never seem to find
here on Earth

Volcanic Ashley

You wear your frustrations

so much better than I

Though I do try
to play the cool guy

but my cutting jibes
always expose my edgy side

Your simmering anger
you mask
with a sweet smile

Who would ever surmise
the delicious evil
that resides inside
your raging head?

Angelic assassin
with volcanic passion

concealing lurking potential
to blow
at any time

Such the dangerous obsession

are you

Riding the Time Line

From it's perch high
on the edge of eternity

Time watches over
Circus Humanity

as the Calendar of Forever
regulates the great clock in the sky

tracking the morsels of minutes
that Time allocates
to all Earthly inhabitants

who exist obliviously

beneath the umbrella
of a force
they can not directly see

but the remnants

always resonate

the ultimate reality

Confessions of a Cynic

These lofty ideals
I use to carry
in my attitude 
now lie in the ruins
of this gray crime scene

Crumbled dreams

chipped away

by decades
of steady disappointments

by the sharp jagged bricks
of bitter indifference

Now I'm just another
cynical commentator
blasting a society
that failed me

though in reality

beneath my hard facade

I know full well 

I failed myself

Freedom Dreamer

So here we are

deep into this
commitment abyss

Every moment

a tug of war
for control

as you tie me up
with all your
constricting restrictions

so today you may have
the upper hand


someday I will escape
the maze of destruction
you have constructed

Find my way
over the wall

and never look back

Under the Influence

Don't waste your indignation
on heartless cretins
who are beyond
any hope of redemption

Save your rage
for those who teeter
good and evil

Maybe they can be saved

from a life depraved  

if you use
your powers of persuasion

to properly shame them straight 

Of Myths and Us

I do so regret
that I will never
get the chance
to impale a dragon
on my unicorn's horn
and take the bloody carcass
to the meat market
and have it sliced
into serpent steaks

I love mythology so

even though I know

it has no practical value

here in the 21st Century

Keeping Company

Hi Ho
to all my fellow
bottom feeders !!

Come commiserate with me
and we can share
our varied tragedies

Collective misery
that flows
deeper than the sea

Let's forge unity
as we join forces
to blow away our enemies

Maybe together
we can elevate
each other
and levitate
out of this hole

At the very least

we'll love each other's

miserable company

Well Hung

Noose in tree

Hanging free

Neck in noose

Moment of truth

Feet off ground

Snapping sound

Limp body

Swinging loosely

Cut him down

We took a life today

the eye for an eye way

like the Roman's did

when they crucified dissidents

Loco Motions

The first step
on that bumpy path 
to happiness
is to accept
none of this
was meant
to make any sense

Tis all an illogical
free style dance
of random circumstance
where we make up
the steps as we go along

So there is nothing wrong
with stumbling
and taking a fall

We all do

but we get back up
dust ourselves off
and adapt as best we can
to impractical reality

Strained Bedfellows

Load cannon

Aim at the wall

Fire repeatedly

Stand back

and watch it fall

Roll the artillery
over the ruins
of our enemy's tragedy 

After the glorious victory
the vanquished
line up for reparations

Suckling the funds we send
to rebuild them
and hope some day
they'll be our friends

Our aid

they will gratefully take
but their appreciation
will be fake

There's no forgiveness

from those we have wrecked

Just simmering revenge

behind the hand shakes 

of our gunpoint allies

Love It Up

Dinner time TV

The news blasts daily 

Prejudice and bigotry

Ignorance begets misery

Our curse throughout history

The fix is no mystery

To mend the global tapestry

an open heart is the key

Let your love flow free 

and redirect the destiny

of our troubled humanity

Earthly Inheritance

The future of humanity
may hinge ultimately
on how we take care
of those in extreme poverty

We better heed
the growling rumblings
in the rapidly
diminishing distance  

for someday
the abject poor
we choose to ignore 

may grow into
the nothing to lose majority

Then we will notice
the economic inequities
we have thrived on
when the peasants 
storm our castle walls

Pulled Plug Apocalypse

Morning power up
as we enter our devices
to access our world
when much to mass chagrin
the country is devastated
by no connection

The mother of all hacks
had occurred while we slept

The magic data cloud
we could no longer access

So who stole our internet?

All the usual suspects
are contemplated
in a last ditch attempt
to make sense
of this unusual
and unprecedented circumstance

The Chinese government

Those hard core capitalists  
top our suspect list

or maybe the Koreans
are still pissed
about that dictator flick?

and the Russians 
can never be dismissed 

That Putin dude 
always the joker
in the global deck

Enemies all
as our economy stalls

The stock market falls
as the brokers
scramble to find
ticker tape

The best techies will be called
to solution this national calamity 

A geek convention in DC
to be convened
as a state of emergency
is declared

The worst side effect without a doubt
now that we have to do without

is that we now
may have to actually
talk to each other!!

No more tech time buffer
to edit what we say

We are live and real time
personally connected

Oh my oh my!!!

How will we survive
living so 20th century???

Don't Poke The Wizard

Once again
we are undone
by our misplaced
good intentions
that sought to regulate
and stifle the powers
of  forces
we did not understand

Laws were passed
in secret midnight sessions
under the broad umbrella
of homeland protections

Of course
the keepers
of the sacred myths
would have none of this

They rallied their army
from the bowels
of the Under Earth
and mounted 
a fierce resistance

Now we find ourselves
in a desperate war
with an enemy we created

All because
we chose to stir
the scalding cauldron
of Hell

Wedded Duress

Marriage vows

Real life fairy tales
played out daily
all over the world

Such a pretty litany
of lovely promises

Rose petals
paving the way
to eternity

We all know the reality

Statistical history
that measures
prior nuptial disasters 
will fully quantify
the wreckage
of happily ever afters

In spite of the odds

they line up anyway

to take that leap of faith 

chanting the ancient liturgy

hopeful that their words

do not fly off

like a mocking bird
