Aces out

Thanks mate It’s an honour to write with you all, and an honour to remember Soul ☀️

Ah, you see I had about 400 poems back in the eons of starting here. Then I deleted them all (I do have backups of them all in personal files) and started again. Got to about 300 and something then gave the old profile a reboot to my current form. I’ll be hitting my 10 year in a couple of weeks.

That’s madness.

It indeed is an honour to be part of something this special.
Every single poet who's contributed to this wonderful and timeless gift from the Soulman, I hold my gratitude to ever so deeply.

DU...well 10 years is nothing when it has become part of ya life dear friend, congratulations in advance.

The arrogance of manipulation


I used to care
more than I should
wrestling with it
knowing such duplicity

Front row
to the sauntering about
while committed sacredness
shatters
into shards of betrayal

Listening to justifications
as skin crawled
and personal embarrassments
flared into disgraced horror

Witnessing
how sorrow sings
as the reality of truth
colors
each stroke

Painted shades of selfishness

O' the breadth of deceit
and the extent
the sheer lengths
gone to
to feel relevant

Ensuring
a singular soul
can "peacock"
without disappointment
grooming in specifics
so you think
it's your idea

eventually
realizing
you were always
going to be


disposable—



in comparison.

(NoPoo  211) Struggling Within

Tasted so much pain
With bloody lips
Struggling within certain feelings
Always on borrowed breath
Anotger breakdown dead ahead

Pushing against deacending darkness
Sleeping giant awakens
Only time will tell
If survival instincts
Are enough again

One step closer
To wilder nightmares
Sanity's cutting it fine
Every situation different
Newer view of suffering

i'm a pigeon
amongst the
peacocks

except
they have
a special
power

whether
they circle
around or
shit on
you

one will
bring luck
another a
lesson.

i am my father's shadow

and bad or good
he is, was or ever will be
care i not
for it is not for me
to choose

i am my father's shadow
i am born to follow him
every time
he faces the sun

I am my father's shadow
I will be there too
for his steps to land on
every time
the sun chases Him

I am
my father's shadow
sun or no sun

Jewish Mother

That’s what He called it:
my inner Jewish mother

quite simply
because
I worry
about everyone

not in a bad way, but
I wonder if they’re ok,
if they got home safely

had enough to eat

drunk enough water,
taken their pills.

Today
I think of you out there

how proud I am
of you facing
a wild unknown,
how bold, how glorious
the day is for us both

and I think on how
I want only happiness
to find you, to wrap you
in its open arms

tell you it’s there for you
as much as I am
while I sit here doing
the Momma thing
in some loving way

some distant form.

There's really no substituting

I read today
of pain and ostracization
I read today of hate, intolerance
and demagoguery
I read today of the incomprehensible
and the should be unfathomable
beautifully iced of whipped
saccharinized sweetener

thinly disguising
layers upon layers
of pious indoctrination
and a piped veiled attempt
toward enlightenment

I read today
that the meaning of equality
is not equal to everyone
I read today that love is not love
it's only for those chosen
I read today that my opinions and choices
aren't as important
and are fodder
"a joke"

Laughs stream into permeating tears
sweetness turns an acrid sour
as calls of 'uniting differences'
and finding 'humanity'
second proceed
with the 'reality'
of your life and your life and your life
(etc etc etc etc etc....)
being called a mockery
in whole as well as in political belief

The truth, hidden inside
a confectionery delight,
those kind with secret centers
revealed only when cutting through

and spilling forth all the cavity creating
stomachache inducing
sickening sweetness
that cause rot and decay
in hopes that very truth stay hidden

I read today that propaganda
when cooked in the right recipe
becomes palatable
and mistaken
for honest sugar

when it's all just coated of Aspartame.

Wishes

and a child is born
not of my time
not under my tropical sky
and blessings I wish I could bestow

that I could beseech  soughing spirits of the winds
that I could call upon blessed ones
in the spring of love the offspring of souls
from the realm of then for a child born of them
grant strength and wisdom of gods to this child

that by the light of morn, brightness of the dawn
to bestow the child a beauty born of love and life
all its shine to leave not darkness un-overthrown
fairness be upon his countenance
beauty shine and beauty borne

you are all those and more
angel dusts and unfurled wings
Happy Birthday, Gabe.

Vegvísir

 
There was
a conversation once  
where we talked about  
the rune compass  
 
how historically  
the symbol was worn  
 
sometimes painted  
on voyaging ships  
so that travellers  
would be protected  
in stormy weather  
 
even when the way  
was not known.  
 
I gifted it to you as a metaphor  
in the midst of your cancer—  
this tempestuous journey  
never ventured before  
 
how the ending was uncertain  
but faith would keep a man safe  
as he fumbled his way  
through the dark.  
 
Now
I sit myself beneath the ash tree,  
think of you on your birthday  
 
how I miss my friend  
today, more than most  
 
and I want to tell you  
that sometimes  
I don’t know where  
I’m headed  
 
how it scares me  
half to death  
though you’d never  
judge my fear.  
 
I think of this voyage  
we are all taking  
day by day  
into the void  
 
pull my sails  
a little tighter—  
 
all of us  
vagrants  
trying to find  
our way home.

a triolet for a bigger punk

 
 
 

I wish you a happy birthday bigger punk
you will always be among us,
a soul that is never forgotten.
I wish you a happy birthday bigger punk
today you celebrate with the gods,
we honour you in metal horns.
I wish you a happy birthday bigger punk  
you will always be among us.

(NoPoo 212) Seeds Of Anger

Seeds of anger that grow inside
Tendril roots spreading
Rage in a cage
Always waiting patiently
To burst forth

voice raised as body shakes
Uncontrollable feelings
Pushing through invisible barriers
Undiscovered monster let loose
Upon the unsuspecting world

Just like nuclear meltdown
Chain reaction splitting human atoms
Surging seething senses
Exploding focal point
Then instant shame and regret

Arpeggio

Shapes that become the lyre
carry wafted whisperings
along the wind afloat
Where dost thou sing deepest
loud, where only You can hear
deep within the caverns

I follow, listening, pour out
my own song, blending
rhythms we set in string
Joyous, these progressions
create music, only hinted in dream
Realities singing, strum every string

Dost thou resonate deep music
where our vibrations float heavens
Hast thee placed melody
hollowed body filling tunes
gaps bridged, keys that turn
where notes are being trilled

Plucked by the other
found waiting upon storefront shelves
every day new gleams ringing
preparations for concert halls
eighth, quarter, half, these steps
given scale, fill out our whole note

(NoPoo 213) Modern Biology

those microscopic cells
replicating
multiplying
biological building blocks
genetic coding

every sinew
muscle growing
forming naturally
the wonder of nature
human birth

medical miracles
beyond science's understanding
labs working overtime
for new discoveries
furure cures

mankind against nature's law
prolonging life
fighting diease
creating vaccines
immortality always  a step closer

They might be giants

saw a pike tonight
swim right past my face
as I dived under lake water

they’re a lot bigger
than you think they are;
a lot faster, too

how glad I am
to live in a world
where monsters exist
