Snow blind to cowards and a dead canary as tomes time the

towers at the end of everything like real coffin lids,

 

Stones grind the flowers in an ossuary as gnomes find the

hours aren’t necessary to appeal to the goddesses,

 

Banging to the autotune as you

hump a slut a week huh?

 

Breaking through the monotone like we’re

crumbling up the weed bruh,

Alone in Wander

entry picture

The water fills the silent note and wind feels a dying plant,

I wander ‘til I find a boat, and swim ‘til I find the land,

The monsters in the battle licked with evil and the rain tapped,

A conscience in a candlestick and needle in a haystack,

A coffin in the book we planned, and missive from the heaven known,

I lost it to the Bogeyman and live it with the let and go,

Bidding on a...

Fight for the Night

entry picture

I’m chained to the timber by the hunter with a horn,

I trained through the winter, and the summer, and the storm,

I came to the picture of the lovers so forlorn,

It rains on the fissure in the come-up of the morn.

A king that shot his queen is a killer that

killed his near madness,

 

A dream is not a dream if the pillars are

built on fear tactics,

Happy Thoughts

entry picture

Splashing in the paints in outfits and masks in the devil’s house,

Basking in the strength to salvage the scraps of her mental health,

Strap it on a bison when they’re laughing at a lion as the rooms shake the posts a bit,

Stranded on an island and the planet of the tyrant where the moons make the most of it,

Smite the weak and we will mind, the water’s loam and Heaven’s goods,

Love the lass that shows she’s strong, but touch her ass and blows are

thrown from a mercurial stance changing out,

 

Cut the grass and mow the lawn to fuck the past and know it’s

wrong with the proverbial pants hanging down,

 

A block to run is often fun to cock the gun

with the high sea on the seaboard,

 

A wad of gum if God were dumb to block your thumb

The Dandy and the Grindstone

entry picture

This story is rich with end games and enemies,

The hand that locks the winter’s latch will talk about the sick,

Euphoria licks the membranes and memories,

The man atop the gizzard had to walk without a stick.

Climbing from his home when so blind to snow season,

Grinding on a stone with no rhyme and no reason,

This land to mine will pass the time when thorough as a washed ass...

Keloid Scars

entry picture

Walking through a place of humans and greedy moss that grapples streets,

Wafting on a wave of hubris and weaning off the battle’s teats,

The park and grass are hard at math and live through this sinner’s dream,

A shard of glass and heart of gas that whips through the wintergreen,

Pleading for the wordless, and then glossing up the burnt leather,

Eating all the birches and then cough...

The Color of a Wing

This future of a hundred bones in a sea full of a soap or lye,

‘Tis sugar of a rugged stone from the twinkle of an ogre’s eye,

Emergencies are in power like they’re dead men in a gator glade,

Eternity in a flower but the present on a razor blade,

Greeting visions with a braid and sash like they’re corpses with a morgue lever,

Seeing prisms in a blade of grass and the horses in the W...

Mrs. Slocum, Would You Be Mine?

entry picture

She embraced less than middlemen once to feign a price to sell,

She escaped Death’s imprisonment just to gain a life in Hell,

Love the ones that take ‘em home if the homes make love to malice,

But her sons were made of stone and her stones made up the chalice,

A limp jump with witless fucks (this is luck) that kick the dust to then raise a rifle,

A pimp cup and visage stuck, is this...

The cells and bars are toiling from the navel to the shinbone,

The alquitar is boiling with the basil and the brimstone,

Pissing tests that prisons left to lift the dress and rape the groom,

Kissing Death while missions rest and give or bless the mason’s moon,

Fill the crate with quills and cake or shiller blades as martyrs rest,

Build or break the mill or lake with killers late and...

Someone Lost a Son Today

entry picture

Trap the ghosts past the roads with paths bespoke by the

savage folk and meritless madness,

 

Casks of oak last for hope if cash is dope to the

master’s rope and devilish masses,

 

Blind to grief of best friends with time at peace to lend less

and hide their old quarters now,

 

Pines and leaves are dead next to line the trees with Semtex

and wipe the whole forest ...

Raining where the ark will lead ‘em with payment for the arts of free men leading to a broken war,

Take him to the arboretum and lay him where the hearts can see him bleeding on the ocean floor,

Towns burn in piles and then blessed be the praise to the words from the gun,

Frowns turn to smiles for when Death sees my face and he turns then to run,

Flowers burn like brush when the tables turn to smack you,

A mockery of existence if this lottery is a business and they form a people’s chair,

Through a Shadow Softly

entry picture

I’m told the dead lie in the belly of the cesspits,

Laughing at the skies and wind,

To hold their heads high in the valley of the headless,

Scratching out the eyes within,

Finally in a place of rot pining for the grace that’s sought and only for the fates of forty,

Find me in a trace of thought climbing up the face of God and hoping for a blaze of glory,

Fray the clothes like bum...

The willows whip the cross with twigs as weather kissed the

Devil’s penance’s better sex with presidents,

Vanity of the Vellum

entry picture

Eradicate the grief in the kissing garden to appreciate the blessed,

Elaborate the weave on existing parchment to alleviate the stress,

Sanity is broken in the night to dread elements and aimless tears,

Tapestry unwoven at the sight of dead elephants and native fears,

Love is in the charter, but the punch is on the brink,

Blood is in the water, but their mud is in the drink,

Rock the raft like a lot of days when you’re sickening a flagon,

Watch your back when you walk away if you’re imprisoning a dragon,

Old friends suit the stone pants to feel they weren’t listless,

Most men use their own hands to build or burn bridges,

Slugging zombies ‘til they drop like they’re walking to the urn or box,

Putting poppies in their pots like they’re bodies in the perma...

Of Soldiers & Strongholds (Poem)

The breeze in our home if our grief is then

owned like the blows of the Shaolin,

 

A peace is then known with the seeds that are

sown in the rows or the mountain,

 

Showing us you can’t believe that no one clutched a

body’s heat like a daddy with his daughter,

 

Growing up a poppy seed and showing love with

stomping feet from the caddy or the corner,

Pathway to the Tesseract

Trepidate through sepulchers and save them an apology,

Estimate the integer and awaken the anomaly,

Slip an arrow in their boot when heaven knows gold isn’t rich,

Sipping sorrow like a soup with seven souls sold to the Styx,

Empresses fuck laborers last if they fuck haters with a shotgun,

Ravenous ruckus-makers ravage the muckrakers with the thought gone,

Brothers (Age of Discontent)

RALPH

To search for steel like a caddy in the rain for more games,

I worked the fields with my daddy until the day the war came,

I climbed up with our fathers in an entry of strict fate,

I signed up at their office and was ready to ship straight,

I blessed a blouse with stitches white as the cover frayed in time,

I left my house and kissed my wife as my brother stayed behind.

A colder land in the snow will bleed through in the briar’s path,

I hold your hand as you grow and lead you to the brighter patch,

Seeping through libations and praying when the day came,

Keeping you hydrated and staying on my A-game,

Poured the cup in my eyes and I felt you feel the way I cry,

You’re the love of my life and I’d help you ‘til the day I die,

I miss my home when I’m crashed out in

an autumn for the thrill,

 

I sit alone in a taphouse at

the bottom of the hill,

 

Towns ablaze in the white smoke with

Counting days with knife strokes and

lobbing pennies in a shot glass,

 

Playing war with bandits as the other

Sick of the happy luck sappy in a

daily spell at a solemn table,

 

Nick was a family mutt happy to be

raising hell like a fallen angel,

 

Stay blind coming to hopes with bricks to lift

and paid with the human urns,

 

Canines running the roads with Nick amidst

the shade of the junipers,

 

Someone passed the building to lick the

cracked brook’s convection,

Away with birds and 40s on a furlough to an office to replay hits,

Today I heard the story of a hero and I wanted to relay this,

When suited with the tar to burrow in a circle with a burnt knife,

A human with a heart of pearl and a world on a turnpike,

Kids in a wheel will arrive hurt with fake fable books and reasons,

If this is real, you defy words and make angels look like demons...

Passion stained and then act ashamed with

homes stacked like they’re cedar,

 

Gases strained from the acid rain with

Rome black as the reaper,

honeyed sounds where snow is,

 

A scythe in this life with a price for the prize where the

Laid to Rest

[Verse 1]

The water on the runways bubbling as it suffers too,

A father at a young age juggling what the mothers do,

Playing dumb, days to duck, memory will come if it blows up the rhyme,

Waking up, take the cut, check to see the son if he woke up on time,

He runs up with a zoom on the one-day smile when,

The sun is in his in room as his son lays silent,

He takes him up his hu...

Hidden with the facts is something out of grasp

in the hidden trees and kola,

 

Whippings on their backs and cutting off their hands

if they didn’t meet the quota,

 

Turn the page in the spot ahead of ire where

manic soldiers fear the devil’s ardor,

 

Rubber slaves were the straw that fed the fire like

Spanish overseers in metal armor,

The Life - feat. Elaine Luna

To smoke the cedar on a stack of freedom with a hallowed jewel,

I rope the Reaper by his neck and lead him to the shallow pool,

Escape from the wrong pains and then weep where the rain fell,

Awake when we bomb trains but asleep on the same L,

Building in a labyrinth to then laugh when killers come around,

Children in a basket as we pass the pillars underground,

Pines in the sky w...

Pretentious (Fake Poets Are Real People)

To slow the bleeding with a rope’s tweed and then the prick side of me,

I know you’re reading what I wrote even as you sit quietly,

Someone told me that they talk their shit next with hands like old leather,

Comment only on the opposite sex like, “Man, I’m so clever.”

You report anyone’s weed sack to stack up their world’s hurt,

You ignore genuine feedback and lap up the circle jerk...

The book was ripped and flicked to detours in a debatable, deferential loyalty,

We took a trip and did the research with the oregano essential oil free,

You can take the happy and spike

Humans make it manly to fight

Shun the face of crooks if they

Pinewood slabs in the kitchen that stay in the libraries for the

Boogeymen in hoodies and with cookies sent to Santa in the

Should we send the pushy into what could be dens of Krampus with the

To catch a firefly tonight the right light might shine so bright that the
