fuck the pebble

dropped into the pond causing slow ripples of change

 

[INSTEAD]

 

drop a boulder 

and

create a WAVE today!

see beyond tomorrow

see beyond tomorrow and breathe it today   see inside the confusion and unveil treasured paths   see within the blackness and smile in brilliant colors   see expectations of yesterday and dance with realities choice   see within your sadness and let loose timid joy   see boundaries of the night and illuminate brilliance of day   see limits…

dawn advances

dawn advances intention:   thunder wind rain – exposing gap between contentment and chaos   dawn continues intention:   beans mortified incandescent glowing apple – acknowledging Darwin via rhythms   dawn establishes intention:   and I emerge – aware . . .

I’M

I’M tired of being told the way – which is tired of speech engaged in your fucking weather tired of classes outlining lines lined-up by lines tired of salvation preached by christians fearing life and even more tired listening to atheists join their kind joining to belong – as they [all] fear life cowards all all seeking to belong all huddling…

destroy the alarm

destroy the alarm programmed to conform that alarm YOU set to precision – incessantly correct   barren earth awaits your scheduled arrival as – each breath you expel is in preparation for the last with the last expelled prior to ever living   tradition tells you too sweat, to set your clock to another master’s time: a time lived –…

the day the snow melted

  the day the snow melted came about when a satisfied sun awoke from its winter’s hibernation and shed the woolen sweater it stubbornly wore the past few months   just like that: cold one day . . .  60 degrees the next heavy bulky coats one day . . . snug, thin-strap tank-tops the next   a southern tent…

I kept looking

I kept looking. Kept, rummaging through the garbage: Sifting my fingers delicately around the soiled remnants, trying to avoid touching the reek emitting from a depleted milk carton that seemed obsessed in vying for my attention. Pawing around, expecting results: Fully aware that I didn’t even really remember when I tossed it away. Tipping the container slightly in the opposite direction,…

cups

CUPS . . .   Even women take notice of them you know! So don’t stand there preaching your sermon too me, don’t stand there in your two sizes to big sweatshirt pretending you don’t have any.   Christ girl, we know they are there. We’ve always known!   Why do you think we wake up? Why do you think we work?…

a “non-traditional” job

a “non-traditional” job  was notated as employment wished for   [as] if –   cubicles and assembly-lines are somehow traditional?     …………………………………   WHO . . . invented [those] traditions WHO . . . decided that legalized-slavery is worth passing down from generation to generation HOW . . . did WE allow “non-traditional” to become an ODD instead of…

so I thought . . .

 

why can’t I masturbate –

YOU

ordered the double cheeseburger

 

as

I drove past the line of cars awaiting “legal” self-pleasuring –

 

at

least my thought  . . . is healthy!

Amass

and so it began . . .

and so it began – this second installment of my life   occurring:   without fanfare, or truly any life-altering epic moment of dramatic effect which would forever be imprinted upon the mind   rather it was just this weird, quiet, 2 a.m. realization that the first part had completed its run, while the second [well] why the second –…

prozac- obituary

  PROZAC –   You met your first one in grade school. Come on, think back, you recall now don’t you? That strange kid seated in the 2nd row, 3rd back from the teacher. You remember which one, [that one] who was always drawing some futuristic object, always talking about some weird idea to change the world.   I met my…

appreciate the moment

appreciate the moment absorb into the skin: views seen, sights smelled [feel] wordless chatter – sentences freely constructed [of] energy random melting into your thoughts, elegantly embracing your bare-soul     appreciate the moment  unrehearsed untamed untouched   appreciate the moment  touch freely – natures beauty as [its] shyness abates, silently exposing: sensual freedom [exuberant] energy bursting upon thoughts left exposed, elegantly…

pure in stride

pure in stride I run barefoot – silent and free past footprints vaguely detectable [fading] in the rising sun arresting holds of uncertainty released into a warming breeze surrendering brilliantly into a tango pulsating within body and mind     pure in form I run barefoot – unrestricted, uninhibited, uncontrolled aligned amongst hours attached on the wind, time relaxes altering attitude, letting-go silent in its…

by the grace

“by the Grace of god, I was not on that plane!” was reported and no one questions, no one replies:   “what about the poor bastards ON the plane, where the fuck did their Grace go?”   this god loves you yet this god fucks your neighbor?   you survive . . . they die   Grace is funny that way . . .  they burn,…
