Nimiety ( An Acrostic )

Needed rest and
idle cares are necessary—
maternal levels treasure
intellectual affinities;
earthen pleasures manifest—
tiny flames engulf
young lovers in love.

Feeling romantic since Johnny mentioned Byron on the Classic Corner discussion thread!
Been reading him since! LOL!


Now I know who to vote for in the latest Classic Corner poll.

Adust cutis, curls, founders
onto desert  pavement 

Dry-shod and caked 
into a geometric blueprint 

Scrub oak with her crooked
branches, naked and twisted
cry out  to an empty sky

As unforgiveness falls
from the mouth
of the sun

Mistletoe thrives on bits
of life,  she clings to.
Nesting, like an organic
hoi polloi

She seeks silence
In her desolate mind

Left silent










Wow, V that is beautiful 💜

Hoi Polloi

competitive living,
the hunt for the holy grail
is all for show;
everyone is certain
their neighbor has it,
and they covet
to the point
of conspicuous
gluttony

the hoi polloi,
with an inability
to conduct their own
investigations,
jet fueled by Vyvance,
noses to the grind
~fake it til you make it, baby ~
while consuming
Costco cases of wine
and joking about it
on Facebook,
not realizing
 that chronic dis-ease
and irreplaceable moments
are the only prize awarded
for the quest

This hoi polloi?    
It's all a decoy---    
a cardboard cutout nimiety    
   
Sans the live fans    
cheering from the stands    
your life's an arena    
empty --- a'void'ing null    
as self-esteem is held hostage
daily; ransom demands    
never paid in full

Like eburnean
the elephant weeps
it weeps for humanity
it knows their sin
and their pending destruction
it will be unforgettable

Enkil & Akasha


In eburnean form
they sit continually still,
seemingly lifeless
turned to stone as centuries spill
until—
The sound of mankind's
wicked evil hate
was enough putrid ire
to rouse them awake,
after years, thousands spanned
it is now —
Enkil and Akasha's
time to rightfully stand,
and hungrily reclaim
their King and Queen's place
(to all mankind's disgrace)
T h e i r 's....
is now
a brand new
Vampire race



*Inspired by Anne Rice's book:
 The Queen of the Damned
