My Voice

 

My Voice

I have been silenced for so long

I do not know my own voice

All I hear

Are your words. 

Your condemnations

Your judgements

Your lies. 

I see your glance

Haughty

Better than everyone else.  

Only

You aren’t.  

You are hiding behind fear

That controls you

And all you do

Keeping me in check 

mate

In case I discover my voice

And us...

Wake the Woke

It is always easy
to think that we could
do better than our parents,
until we are one.

It is always easy
to think that we would
be kinder than others were
without knowing their struggle.

It is always easy
to accept current propaganda
as certainty
until we have
identified with another culture.

It is always easy
to condemn our historical figures
with 20/20 vision
from the safe ...

We are love-starved people

always search for and struggle

it is not the matter for an individual

but for all human beings

 

what shall happen?

if you are desperately driven

you are not attentively heard

and words go into oblivion

 

think of other means available

EYES - RIGHT!

No matter what you seek to say

Your eyes always give you away.

No matter how you play your role

Your eyes are the window to your soul.

Maybe you should avoid my gaze

When you involve me in your plays

Of make-believe and innocence -

In shadow-sway of sweet pretence.

Even when you lower your lashes

I seem to see those deceitful flashes;

So now sense says that we should ...

WEEKLY WALKABOUTSVERSE, E.G., 113 OF 230: FOLLOWING THE SUN

Poem 113 of 230:  FOLLOWING THE SUN - SPRING 2000

Having moved, by buses, up the hill from Salford to Bury
    (To be within walk of new work, again),
These stimuli surround, between my abode and the factory,
    As I follow the sun - its wax, its wane:
Walking toward work and the rising sun, a morning chorus
    Rides the crisp breezy air of hill-farmland,
While gravel, of road and path, b...

When My Heart Starts Dancing

Photographs can find lost connections instead I put my record player on.

Certain favourite songs

rhythm takes flight

full volume on

heart starts dancing

good times spinning

rocking rolling lovers

summers keep coming

past moments click

when needle lifts

records slot time

back into place

feelings stacked ready

to relive love

when music returns

Lets twist again

Losing It

 

I know of old people

who lose their hearing

and lose their bearings

who lose their glasses

and lose their car keys

who lose their balance

and lose their sharpness

and can't remember

half the time

I know of them

because I have heard stories

none of which applies to me

I just heard stories.

Strange Old Day

 

I ate some strange old mushrooms

Got chased off a shark

It jumped outta my beer bottle

And began to bark

 

I ran through a dying mist

And into a wall

Then into the deepest sleep

I began to fall.

 

Into strawberry Fields

With lemon drizzle streams

And coconut shells

Full of incoherent dreams 

 

Oh

What a strange

Old day

afore time did us part,

the question I pose is;

oh where is her heart?

 

no love fills her veins

harder than me, she

exploits the old fear

 

that she will leave me

Elijah was walking back with iced tea he got from the store, 

But he “looked sketchy” so the police arrested him and threw him to the floor. 

They placed him in a carotid hold until he could not breathe anymore, 

Which led to his heart attack and he later died from all the suffering he endured.

 

So we played violins for him hoping he would play with us from heaven.

There is no ultimate height to be reached

No passion that can be fully satiated

We fly high once in a while then plunge

Down to the nest from which we flew

Satisfaction is a mediocre expression

It barely describes ambition least of all desire

Round and round we go chasing our own tails

When the world was big

and the ship I was onboard left Trinidad

sailed to the Panama Canal.

We crossed the Pacific Ocean, and we were alone

in a world so big.

Then the Indian Ocean, the world was endless

finding an island, a needle in a haystack.

It was long ago, long before Apollo made the world

into a small planet in the vast universe

We Were Kings

Born of poverty, to a working class that knew no favours, forged in the fire of our troubled teens,
We wanted to taste life in all of its variety of flavours, and we had the will, if not the means,
Set on such a wild path before we’d ever even met, rough under foot with the promise of these things,
Paupers in terms of material riches, and yet, you and I brother were destined to be, “kings,”

Dust motes dance on a sunbeam
as I scribble down a memory, pot it like a plant:
bedazzled, bedraggled,
dazed by the sun’s gaze
I write romance

Sunlight slants
Where the winds’ forget-me-nots blow
summer days’ sway
into a dreamless sleep
dust motes gleam in the sunbeams
that I keep.

A primal scream seeps into these splintered recollections,
forming sharpened shards,

He took white wine but drank Belgian lager.

Everyone was in couples. The talk was all about kids, cars and Ikea.

Fish out of water he decided to slip away.

On the way out he noticed the un-opened white wine.

So he took it home.

I have an acorn in my hand

I am curious as to what it will be

Will I grind it into flour

Will I plant it in the ground

Will I throw it to be gathered

Will I keep it safe and sound

What does the acorn want?

Does the acorn even want?

How will I ever know?

It will not respond.

It is my choice, then

It's always my choice

Shocking surprises life can bring

Without giving a chance to sing

Some good ones and some sad

Making you happy or really mad

 

Some people may come and go

Similar to the stream of river flow

You continue searching for them

Only if they were a priceless gem

 

Anything can happen at anytime

But sometimes it feels like a crime

When you don’t know what is coming

Once He Saw Himself

 

Once he saw himself
a shaman from a vanished world.
World in perpetual motion;
no patience for how the photograph lies.
Two-dimensional people of today,
snapped and shot, could not stand in his heart.
But she! He saw how she powered forth 
from a pre-linguistic world. Her magic
brought joy with instantaneous engagement.
That's not to say she wouldn't speak.

And, best, they don’t complain.

A Preview ?

There's a land in my dreams I often go.
There's no left or right, no high no low.
People listen, respect and understand.
All warm and bright, yet a sunless land.

A place like time has been put on hold.
All around I hear love stories being told.
I also hear music, but see nobody play.
I don't want to awake, as I want to stay.

Is this place a preview of what's to be?

For a long time you felt that you were weak
