FEAR

FEAR (edited)

what is fear
false evidence
appearing real
hard not to react
to things we feel
so much to fear
things we can't see
swear we hear
things far away
and very near
since beginning
of time
fear's tricked
eyes and minds
didn't know what
something was
labeled it
monstrous
what's that shadow
is someone there
thought i saw a figure
probably just the glare
under the bed

PARADISE JARRED

PARADISE JARRED

was never
in the know
always on
the learn
now's the time
it's my turn
absorbed like
a sponge
now purge
and expunge
ironies
and puns
just for
fun
it's not where
i live
but what
i give
finally found
my home
in my writing
dome
pen in
hand
wonderland
better design
couldn't plan
have my
shangri la
pure
utopia
paradise
jarred
sitting in
the yard
spel...

IN THE I

IN THE I

up i was turnt
out totally burnt
couldn't focus
too much hocus pocus
no present
useless thoughts spent
no forward action
outside distraction
lost connections
no directions
reinvention
posing...pretension
no joy
empty void
self sabotage
afraid...a mirage
trip guilted
movements stilted
chasing dreams
running after me
caught up
deconstruct
no more lies
removing veil

MOTHER EARTH

MOTHER EARTH

holy frack
would you look
at that
mother has
cracks in her back
she's being raped
for gases that escape
fresh water being removed
to never again be used
makes her shake
and quake
causing droughts
as we bake
lava flows
sink holes
people being
swallowed
have marbellous countertops
so others ooh and awe
destroying the planet
taking her for granite
giving earth a h...

fancy apartment
big sctreen tv

eyelashes worth
every cent

nose so high
could drown in a rain
calf implants
not causing too much pain
new parts
i like to flounce

WELL SPENT

WELL SPENT

no dollar
value
a priceless
jewel
what with it
you do
is up
to you
no return
policy
just
possibilities
no instruction manual
or guarantees
only thing promised
is uncertainty
be wise
with this
short time
be gone
before you realize
there will
be slips
and trips
don't worry
about falls
they will
seem small
at final
curtain call
yes it's
elemental
here to ...

LET IT SHOW

LET IT SHOW

standing
here
insecurities
fear
gust of wind
you'll
disappear
get up
the nerve
put it 
into words
ironies
observed
no
u turn
moments
burn
faceted
gem
with paper
and pen
legends
filled
deep water
under still
be the
catalyst
express
your gift
no regrets
or what ifs
all you
need
to proceed
is to follow
your dreams
don't live on

SHIFT

SHIFT

they
say
ride
or die
only have
one life
don't have
to stay
til you
fade 
one way
street
same
scenery
next exit
stage left
to yourself
say yes
no need to
stick around
going over
worn ground
get into
gear
new trails
to steer
wings to
be spread
burning
tread
clutch
released
lightning
greased
full
throttle
freedom
unbottled
forward
thrust
leaving
dust

GUIDE

GUIDE

if
smart
to others
impart
educate
informate
what's learned
regurgitate
if an expert
preach
what you know
teach
if well read
and sure
be a
mentor
sharing
thoughts
can't be
bought
doesn't mean
squat
if what you know
isn't taught
use your
mind
to
edify
don't
hide
your
wise
use it
to guide

UGLY DUCK

UGLY DUCK

lonely
and pale
skinny
and frail
invitations lost
in the mail
last one
picked
bullied
tricked
words
hit
like stones
and sticks
not
included
demeaned
deluded
gullible
naive
heart on
sleeve
target
scapegoat
lost sheep
without hope
voted most
to be least
ugly duckling
among geese
where are
they now
doesn't matter
anyhow
felt homely
in the cradle
sittin...

GROW WHOLE

GROW WHOLE

don't wanna hear
the words
only gonna
hurt
doesn't matter
what we say
died
the day
our son
went away
can't face
ouselves
let alone
anyone else
so what
happens now
does it matter
anyhow
only have
the past
can't go
back
living on
memories
too painful
for me
don't know how
we got here
caught up in
this nightmare
unable to
fully wake
like this we
can't st...

SCULPTOR

SCULPTOR

in shat creek
i did wade
master to
the disaster
that i made
hatter of
my mad
devil of
my bad
didn't
choose
to lose
but am
mistrees
to this
mess
going
to be

adventurer to

killer of

Freud to
my psyche
key
to my sanity
editor
in chief
conductor of
my energy
twister of
my fate

SHOE FITS

SHOE FITS

spellbound
enchanted gown
perfect marriage
charm and carriage
fairy tale
princess and the pail
wizardry
from a pumpkin seed
took flight
on a timeline
glass slipper
left behind
midnight missed
frog kissed
prince lost
bucket and mop
riches to rags
Cinderella's way
shoe fits
magic
happily ever after
wearing it

GO FISH

GO FISH

looked into
my eyes
said you loved me
but you lied
couldn't
breathe
had to flee
begged me
to stay
promises of
change
don't wanna be on
your runaawy train
jumping
track
not turnin
back
don't follow
me
hollowed out
can't cha see
with my feelings
you trifled
your love
like a rifle
held me
hostage
touch was
caustic
poisonous
toxic
kisses
muted
numbed
and po...

when did i
get here
woman in
the mirror
looking at
senior years
went from
newlywed
to the
nearly dead
what happened
in between
is a
mystery
flew by
so fast
like an instant
photograph
was living
life
blinked
it went by
over the
decades
didn't notice
myself age
walked past
a window
saw a face
i should know
eyes were
the same
for a moment
felt strange

MARVEL

MARVEL

winter's kiss
solstice
full moon
rising soon
premiere
13 a year
star studded dance
universe expands
planets align
space and time
human suspension
outer dimension
rocket man
in a tin can
strumming along
to Major Tom
view below
magic globe
shooting for mars
far...far...far
endless vast
holes of black
fire ball
night falls
marvel at
the wonder of it all
