there is no genre

there is no genre – no thing I don’t have what you ask   see ~ I write from reality [it] whispers sweet-nothings in my brain whispers charming rants – salutations my dear friend: “who are you” “what do you do” “where are you from”   [“when” – wasn’t forgotten]   and ~ the bird chirped [its] praise through the…

what if -

  what if –   you are wrong:   your “facts” arriving [from]  the stick-up-the-ass   did you ever stop [stop] to smell               smelling ~ from whence your “facts” arrived


time, efficiency, mass-production . . . at the least possible cost   living –  has now become scheduled: as watch’s clocking breathes, dictate success or failure and “more, more, more” rams beats of blood, pumping you along . . . hurrying you . . . to return to the schedule which you are rushing to escape!   as from the…

undress the unknown

undress the unknown ~ embrace the untamed {s.s. – 2015}   BREATHE …   pause, imagine, wonder . . .   as you   feel vibrations within each sense freed feel existence pounding, shattering your shell liberating abstract impressions into destinations without borders {s.s. – 2015}
