The Dead Practice Death (better get The Hang of it ! )

Practice dead.
Go'head.
Ain't any life 'round here anyways.
Go'head.
Play dead.
Practice 'til ye get it down, fucker.
Y'know. Practice 'til perfect, and shit like that.
Death practice, hey kiddies, Practice !)
Practicing Dead
(Go'head.....

damn'it.

Practically dead.  And
Deadly practicle ! )
(O, deathly doodah day!)

The dead shall inherit Thee Earth.
(Man, that's a lotta dirt ! )
("40 acres and a mule", daddyo. Cain't kick'bout that ! ).

And wings....like Noah's dove.

Bones

I am only bones here  
I am only bones  
 
To open jaw  
Gaping clack and click  
Monstrous sockets  
 
See hollow  
See darkened deep for eyes  
Seeing no purpose for flesh without fate  
 
Without the spiritual meat  
Godliness
Without agape to limber the ligament  
 
(and I fall carelessly, easily into my stride.... without cause to gawk and gawk again over my shoulder and forward again)  
 
(and over wing like a bird, smooth movement over wing without hesitation... no falsehood in my transition, only smooth movement over wing)  
 
I am only bones here  
I am only bones
 
That wear on stone the callous of pearl  
Or alter themselves, the appearance of sediment  
When horizontal I am a torrent bed  
When vertical, hollows to see the horizon  
 
(and the labyrinth life lay below me, and I see the beginning as it attaches itself to the middle, and into the end without fear... my view from a face that turns over wing.. smoothly.)

Angstloch

The thin oak planks rang out and stretched like the lashes on my back. I love her.
Ancient whispers of bread crusts and murky puddles in my rusted platters. We dance.
Organization of our soldered genitalia. Like a Chagal. Like a blueprint of winding afterlives.
Forever and ever and ever, my honey-soaked and lock-jawed bride. Animal hides and the erudite silk of dead eyes.
Her fingers grip the fibers of my aqueducts, click of motors. Bare bodies under the blankets of tongue-like leathers and permanent need.
Flowers for Christ. Oils from our severed, thick leg machines. Standing like memoria.
Her eyes reported me to the sindicate. Her waves spin tales of Oceana or Oceanus.
Lips that read the bare voice of my entrails.

temporal manifesto for the necessity of poets

steel hand blades sketch
with a discerning feather touch      
     
for the surgeon      
precise cuts are the line between      
van gogh brush strokes      
     
painting eyes in gold      
country suns      
and the eternal ink of oblivion  
     
but you poet    
dirty nails clawing      
this refuse of words      
     
your garbage skin      
reeks needled abuse      
and primping egotism      
     
the jagged art of your rusty      
word pills and bruised      
arrow pierced bodies    
     
punch and kiss themselves      
with nails to hang      
from the gallery of tongues      
     
no immaculate lie    
to save us now      
   
we lie like dogs      
in this ass sniff    
wound lick charade      
     
your loathing tongue mind      
drips gristle  words      
like grease blood into the moon    
howl throat of death  
   
up to her hips now in amputated limbs
the surgeons scalpels long replaced with saws
    
the golden gough sun a red musket ball      
smeared in bite the whiskey bullet  cries    
     
like bayonet lullabies drifting      
to pine needle dreams      
     
a brown dead-hair of tree bed      
to cradle our fetal  bodies    
in the pain milk of night      
     
till the waking  snake      
choke day break thrum      
of each buzz flock whale wailing      
moan  migrates to memory      

from you poet    
dirty nails clawing      
this refuse of words

Foreplay

I feel you before
measured footfalls even  
register in my ear.  
The heat on my neck
nothing to do with my warm kitchen.  
I know what I’ll see  
should I give in  
lock your eyes with mine:  
 
sensible chair centered in my space –  
my domain – and you  
straddling the seat, leaning  
forward onto the back.  
 
Looking your fill.  
 
Searing your want into my  
cable knit covered ankles and  
calves, nakedness of my  
knees and thighs ablaze with your  
lingering eyes.  
 
I can only hear crackling music  
of rustling adjustment,  
the clearing of your throat.  
The creaking chair,  
rustling adjustment.  
 
I forget whatever I am stirring –  
smooth my hair back with damp hands  
try to brush the flour from my apron  
freeze realization of my  
absolute ordinary.  
 
Creaking chair  
rustling adjustment  
creaking chair  
deliberate steps closing  
distance between us.
 
 
“My Love” brushed just  
below my ear places me back  
on my axis  
 
and your finger traces my  
star map from shoulder  
to palm.

Sorry for making a post without an entry but I'm finding it difficult to narrow my next 2 selections.  Not complaining but excited.  I knew poetry is nice but didn't know know.

Hell And Peace

Dear psychosis,
Lowly your voice howls
Within the wintry confines of my mind.
Now is the winter
Of my discontent.

I feel your veil
over my eyes thickening.
What is reality? I reach for it,
But with broken hands,
I can no longer grasp.

And now as the veil thickens,
I feel a coexistence
between peace and hell.

The serenity of my beach
Is beaten by the waves of lava.
But I want to dip my foot in,
And be consumed
With your fiery embrace.

You did Thank you so much for nominating!

I just told my friend Corine, who inspired it, and she was thrilled. It was the first time she had ever been a muse for a poem - hint, it won't be the last
