Dear Universe

Dear Universe,

Why did you give me a flower so beautiful,

then make me watch its petals fall?

Why did you gift me a single seedling,

but forbid me from watering it?

Why did you lead me to the purest of water,

yet poison it with your toxins?

 

You chuckle to youself

as I try to overcome it,

overpower it,

out determine it,

all the while knowing

deep within the ...

Animal Suicide

I tell you

I'll love you no matter what.

 

I don't care what they think, 

fuck their approval. 

 

And yet I find myself, 

crawling back.

Plagued with naive hope,

self-loathing weakness. 

 

A bird plucking its own feathers

one by one. 

Until all that's left

is an ugly mangled mass, 

defeated by its own destruction.

Lust

 

The lust for war
is skin-tight & as hemoglobin to bone--
turning poets into preaching prophets
politicians into potion preachers
children into cheapened chattel
soldiers into senseless slogs
intellectuals into inflated idiots
conservatives to corny connivers
liberals into leaky liars &
the right into the wrong.

simply because war is a blood poison
and war is psychotic chaos,
a f...

Being Human

Rubber scrapes the soil

orchestrating a path

with feet.

Watching tread copyright nature

with a flawed melody,

a percussion of leaves crunches beneath,

touching gales with a verse of words-

before the chorus fades.

Poisoning our Children

Carcinogenics in every single thing we buy
From our food, clothes, to even our hair dye
Although Europe does indeed do more to try to protect us
America really doesn't seem to give a flying fudge
They have many slimy loop holes which risk our health and safety
Like the fragrance loop hole that has, over these years, affected us far too greatly
They need not disclose chemicals that they use t...

I can't see
The insides of my eyelids have been my solace
All I know is the sycamore I lay under
I lay on my back in hopes that my eyes will  miraculously open to the crisp sky
The sycamore rots
At least I think its a sycamore
It has an indistinguishable tang of cinnamon that cooks off the bark and hangs in the hot air in summer
and a desperate perfume of musk from the roots lingers in the ...

The loss of human nature

I live by necessity,

I compromise my desires

for security.  Ideals

compromised for base comforts.

 

I play by rules I believe

to be fundamentally

unfair.  I envy the gulls

I lie watching at the coast.

 

They live by urge - fly here, fly

there - investigate a pile

of seaweed, take off out to

sea to sit and bob for hours.

 

I envy the fox, living

by in...

An archer of the woods

I am an artist of words,
an archer of the woods. 
A constellation of the brightest stars.
An adventurous being,
with dreams that follow the galaxies. 
I seek only wonders,
I seek only peace.
Not mistake me as an ordinary piece. 
My arrow strikes in the souls of others.
It does not have an aim but it follows,
it stays inside like a deep wound. 
It does not break, it just gets stuck. 
St...

lovedhuman naturecouplesmysteriousnaturewondersmyself

words formed at waking

a muttering crowd gathers
'round a well of human tears
they lower dirt-sodden buckets to recover
the wet product of night terrors,
tumult and nascent fear

an ejaculate shower glistens
on the dead leaves and automobiles
while nature howls
then hunkers down in silence
posturing for the next kill

Wild wolf

I heard you howl

at the moon.

I believe it was

sometime in June.

 

Wild wolf

you sounded lonely

you sounded sad.

Was I scared?

No I was mad!

 

Why?

 

Wild wolf

in myth you

are evil.

This fear from

the time primeval.

I heard a wolf

howl at the moon,

I believe it was

sometime in June.

 

It sounded lonely

it soudnded sad

was I scared?

No I was mad!

Why?

 

The wolf is being

hunted, exterminated.

Why is the wolf

so very hated?
