Vigil

I put another flower on your grave todayThe ones I placed before were losing color in the shadeWere growing duller as they grayed,For, like a little congregation, they were dying where they pray I placed a pair of roses there before your tombThe other ones, I guess, had been devoured by the snowAnd so theyContinue reading “Vigil”

Cutter

Arbitrary landscapes in a flutter ’round the cellarAre they moving interstellarBeing fortune and the tellerNot the sold and not the seller of the all consuming clutter Piling in monuments of other minor momentsWhere we measure in componentsBeing growth and how we’ve grown itInto fountains full of foment fit to fade like just another Trivial pursuitContinue reading “Cutter”

Tranquilized

I set a set of shacklesOn my unassuming wristsSo that in search of tender trystsI found a string of jaded jackalsWhile my care and my concern all shrank to cries And lost, there in the brambles,Where beneath the swirling mistsI looked for longing that I’d missedAmong the me I left in shamblesKeeping warm beneath aContinue reading “Tranquilized”

Seeming

Wrapped up in the intimation of a figure stoicWearing, even now, a garment partially heroicSpeaking words I never really understood completelyUttered as if confidential whispering discreetly Standing here as if it mattered to you in the merestModicum of meaning yet I held you, ever dearestBolstering the feeble feeling that if I could barterMore than whatContinue reading “Seeming”

Confession

I feel as though I calculateAnd never make a single calculationI measure out the permanence that wasn’t really permanentIn values organized in permutations I set a set of sliding scalesAgainst the metaphors of old deceptionI find in the dividing there are only larger dividendsTo quantify the meaning of exception I feel like I’m conspiringBut neverContinue reading “Confession”

Autopilot

In weaving this, a wonderful mirage,I place a veil of lacquer over empty catacombsAnd painting little stars to hide alone where night is blackerThan the part of me that knows that, in a way, it’s sabotageBecause I promise you a winterAnd a sign of “None May Enter” But here I have become a mere facadeAnContinue reading “Autopilot”

The Pegasus Fiasco

So, I finally got around to releasing a book of poetry. I mean, I got it sorted out back in February but I’m not exactly loud about these kind of things. It’s called “The Pegasus Fiasco” You can click on the picture of the book to get to the purchase link or just click HEREContinue reading “The Pegasus Fiasco”

Refuse

I steal the light from othersAnd replace with a shadow of a flameThey carry it a while seeing something like the colorsThat were taken and devouredAnd they scarcely realize they’re not the same A grain and then anotherAnd before you know it, like an hourglassThey slowly drain away behind the ever-shifting coverOf illusion that wasContinue reading “Refuse”

Leads

Perhaps we never partedNever did, because we never really couldDivide the imperfectionsFrom the infinite reflectionsThat we never really startedTo perceive the way we said we always would So now we hold departureLike an ornament that waits to meet a treeIn days of burning summerWhere remembrance merely slumbersAnd the stars are set as archersAnd the pinesContinue reading “Leads”
