Super Dorky Political Holiday Poem

Resists those savage beasts and brats
That play along the edge
Of Left and Right who
Skirt the truth
You cannot trust their pledge
They divide and split and lie and cheat
I hope that you can see
They hurt our hopes of embracing
Our precious liberty

I'll tell you friend
With eyes agog
The truth will set you free
Believe in this and only this
The might of

Resist the lies from either end
Believe in fact and truth
The fringe is not your friend my friend
The edge is perilous
Stray back into the center part
Find light and peace and trust
Join with me in denouncing lies
Be one with all of us

I'll tell you friend
With eyes agog
The truth will set you free
Believe in this and only this
The might of

The Tenebrous Heart

I am the breath that gives you
Shivers on a hot day
I am the captain of letters
The siren smoulder
The violent eye
And the tenebrous heart
I will sit with you
In erstwhile tension
Holding your hand with
Ever increasing
My arms will want to hold you
My voice alone can lift you
Envelope you in the midst of
The bewildering
Silence surrounding
We must dance, precious one
When the winds of fate
Demand it
We must cry and sing too
So history is
And in the shadows and the secret times
Amongst the lions and the thorns
Lie together and

From my upcoming novel: 24th Century Dick.

Chapter 3:
The space cruise liner Antipoinnes: formerly the most luxurious, expensive and largest space liner in the three systems. It was built at least seventy-five years ago with no expense spared, and though the years have been somewhat unkind, and have perhaps dulled its former sheen, the patina of history and experience has also given it a glamorous aura, if a slightly dangerous and murky one. It is here in interplanetary space, neutral territory, that shady transactions occur, illicit goods are acquired, and deals both legal and non are brokered, all out of the prying view of the ever curious authorities. It is here the unseemly flee towards, along with the desperate and hunted, as long as they can afford the price of a ticket for the non-stop journey from the Sol system to the Orion Gateway Belt, or better yet, hide deep in the vessel's interior where a whole city of non-passenger class permanent residents or refugees dwell. Here they eek out a living scrounging and selling anything they can acquire, illicit substances or just hot meals. Flesh is also peddled in abundance, for sex or otherwise. However, the most profitable trade is, and always has been, information.
And thus it has become a neutral place for spies to meet, ransoms to be paid and prisoners exchanged, rather like the Vienna of old Earth history. Here one can find information for a price or just as easily end up dead for entering the wrong passage, over hearing the wrong sentence, witnessing that which is meant not to be witnessed...

I used to be beautiful too, like you
Until the weight of the world
Crushed my hopes and dreams
And I found solace in the
Vices of man...

Red Eyes

Red eyes
Got me burning
For your
Red eyes
Got me yearning for your
Fiery tongue
Your nails
My back
Gets me turning to your
Perfect body
Gently kissing
Along your thighs
Learning all your pleasure lines
Let me take my time and
Go slow
All the highs and lows
I want to spend with you
And those
Red eyes
Burning deeply
Into me

The world is full of dicks
If you find some
Put them in a bag
Of which this
You can use
To hit the more of dicks
You might encounter

Husband Your Strength

Husband your strength and
Grab it hard
In both mangy fists
Shake from it the moss and
Roots of despair that linger
Take it with whispers and smooth banter
Coo and cajole
But do so quickly
For what remains
Of this journey mission life
You shall have need
Take it in your eyes and
Feed it on
Glistening tears and
Blood soaked laughter
Grin painfully
For the larder is running

There is a life
That dances in
Blue eyes
I love when they
Shine and smile
I want them laughing
Your lips parted
A kiss
