He was...

Concieved during
A hurricane
Baptized in
Volcano's fire
A shout to rouse
The damned
A glance to destroy
The saved
A grin to seduce
The pure
A voice to make
Hearts beat unsteady
He was the greatest clerk
The grocer had ever
Seen

Looks Like

Looks like
What your soul
Looks like
On the inside:
A penny worn smooth
A knife dulled
By pills
A grain of sand
Perfectly alike
And different
To me
To you
To they
Looks like
What your soul
Looks like:
Broken glass
Flooded plains
Burning flames
Looks like
What your heart
Looks like:
Full of beatings
Full of flesh
Full of life
Looks like

When a Trickle Becomes

When a trickle becomes
A roar
And you no longer hear
The laughter
And you no longer court
Disaster
But eagerly seek
Not that which came before but
The here and after
Seek also
A friend amongst the
Wolves
Which run and howl
An ally or one who can
Comprehend
Your sorrow, loss and pain
Squinting look straight
At the sun
And with those wolves now run
Do not hesitate or falter
Until and only when
The roar becomes
A trickle

A Wise Person...

A wise person told me to find love
You must first really love yourself
So I jerked off three times back to back
Now we play the waiting game

Don't Let Go

You got snakes
They crawl down around your earlobes and neck
They hiss and make biting dance moves
Whensoever I try an'
Get too close
My arms are covered in stings an' venom
You got fangs too and they
Sometimes press deep
Impress against my flesh and or
Skin cells
Those of my
Person
And I like my person
Your forked tongue too is
Lashing
And I wish you'd clench me
Less and less
Tightly
I wish you'd unhinge your claws
As they bite too and make my
Mind shut tight
But your eyes they hypnotize
Your eyes they mystify and
Mesmerize
Even though your teeth claws
Causes some
Degrees
Discomfort
And my red red blood cells
Are becoming too the
Difficult
To replace
Even though
Don't let go
Please
Don't
Let go

Epirus


Winning her heart
Defined quite nicely
The meaning of
Pyrrhic victory
Oh Epirus how I can
Relate

Crab-like Through the Wasteland

I get my kicks by
Throwing bricks
Into the shop windows
Of your mind
I use sly tricks to
Catch your eye
Looking slick
And dancing sideways
Crab-like
Through
The wasteland
That is your soul
It is you however child
With control
Your body is an oasis
And perfect flawless
As is your mouth and your eyes
These which I dance through
Crab-like
To find the
Wasteland
Of your soul
The winds of which
Nothing
May withstand

And Squinting

I will crawl
And I will bow
Until there is but
No place
Left to run
Can't out run
The sun
And then I will
Wheel about and
Squinting
Fight

Pity We

Pity we
Those of us
Who are
Enslaved
Undone
Lost
To the figures of
Beauty
Pity us
Shake your heads
In all your wisdom
But in those
Shining moments
When we touch
The figures of light
Heaven is unleashed
Such shining moments are
Equal
To a lifetime of
Despair
Pity we the lost
Pity us
The fools
Shake your head
And smile that
You are not
Considered
Among us

Father and Son

'Papa, when will the pain end?'
'When we die, my Son.'
'Papa, please don't let the pain end.'
'That is what we call love son. At least we have the jazz music.'
'Yes, Papa, it soothes. And the dancing girls and cocaine aren't bad either.'
(pause)
'Papa, our life is pretty good, isn't it?'
'Shut up my Son.'

She liked me until
She didn't
And I
Can't stop
Liking
Her

Long for you (lyrics for a song)

Like a jaguar
Waiting for a kill
Like a junkie
Looking for a thrill
I will always
Almost and always
Long for you

Like an artisan working
At the wheel
Like a prostitute yearning
For that which is real
I will always
Almost and always
Call for you

And when we walk and pass on bye
And fail to look in
One another's eye                > Chorus
I will always
Almost and always
Yearn for you

Like a scorpion
About to sting
Like a errant knight
Without a king
I will always
Almost and always
Call for you

Like a soldier itching
On the trigger
Like a traitor yearns to
Point the finger
I will always
Almost and always
Lust for you

And when we walk and pass on bye
And fail to look in
One another's eye                > Chorus
I will always
Almost and always
Yearn for you

Like a farmer who
Works his till
Like a starving man
You cannot fill
I will always
Almost and always
Long for you

Broken Soul

I fell in love with a broken soul
No matter what I do
Ain't got
No control
And damn taken
Such a heavy toll
I fell in love with a broken soul
No matter what I say
No matter what I do
Got me feeling
Black and blue
I fell in love with a
Broken soul
Ain't got
No control
No control

Have a Heart

I donated my heart to science
And replaced it with
A pocket watch
Gold in kind
The scientists said my heart
Failed to move to the
Federally approved beat
Despite much indoctrination on
Their part
And physical mistreatment
Kind words
Threat and reward
They grew weary and so
They locked it away
Meantime
The pocket watch started to
Tick unorthodox
For how a pocket watch
Is generally inclined
But for a heart it did
Just fine
In the end however
The new organ
Gold in kind
Rejected my body
And my mind
So now I wander
with no heart and
No idea
The time
