CUL-DE-SAC




The small amount of lies fostered in a cul-de-sac
bring back a flowering of rains fallen by the sea side.

This he keeps in a shoulder pack if only as a half sodden, torn off
loaf of tissue cultivated from a detrimental odyssey of vaporous
decay engineered by the purely incidental inclusion of a privatized
weather system.

After a manner of speaking, the heat driven from this exertion
lifts the cold fronts necessary to impact and darken
the farthest horizons of his brought along mind.

Herein is mirrored the curious resolution of proximity
following function, and form as necessary reflection, like
a cowled dome both protecting and concealing that which has
never really moved.

The upkeep of this quest is a perpetual
illusion he has been charged with maintaining;
that form follows function, and not the other way around,
and that which desire knows it comes from can never be rekindled.

Because function follows form when the last
question is answered, if a pinch of truth could
plant the seeds from which a fruitful crop
is harvested to be dried into bundles like sage
can be gathered from the barren side of winter's hill.

Then it follows that the transubstantiation of cinders
mixed with crushed petals could be carried across interminable
treks due to intersect another wayfaring traveler's lonesome passage.

Here an exchange of dust smoked in each other's pipes
can reverse the forked tongues of forefathers.

Here the untold damage of history's lies can be undone.
It only takes one figment of imagination.

The pouch is woven from the fibers grown from the seeds it carries.
And nothing besides goodwill is required of passing strangers to water it.




WINDSOME




Who arrived on goatwinds eating licorice.
Who peered out from under the tree
grown out from the top of their heads.

Who vacillated from insubstantiality
to being taken out of context
like a drawing propped carefully
alongside a statuette:

One is inanimate, ready to burst free
while the other has been released
in a sinewy, coiled escape.

Just waiting for the rain
that will help grow the tree
inside their brain to the wide open blue
to get lost in that terrain again.

At what cost does freedom become moot
when all dreams get covered in soot?

So shake the dust off the motes in your eye
and peering out from under your branch
follow the wind, my friend.

MADEIRA






smoky ruins run
between hills

the faint scent of
slaughterhouse sunsets

distills where pepper
and spices help
hide the deed

with a whole brood
of raisins crushed
for this need

INIMICUS DISCIDIUM




for my brother(s)





Blame assigned to others is directed with folly,
For all woes stem from one's own heart and mind.

~

This is not a wisdom that can be taught;
It must be learned by one's own hand or not learned at all.

~

We alone are the ultimate source and cause of our own misfortunes.
Changes must be made within ourselves if we are to overcome them.

~

Every individual carries the mob mentality within their own mind.
With every generation it becomes increasingly difficult to overcome.

~

This is the nature of the Beast we each carry within our hearts:
The more progress civilization makes, the wilder the Beast inside each one of us.

~

Why the current age must be the speciality of the spiritual warrior:
Only through greater intellect and wisdom may the sword's reign over the pen be brought to an end.


~

When the pen dictates a thousand swords to be drawn, it is not mightier, but weaker.
In this fashion the pen's nib becomes the sword's tip, and ink turns to blood.

~

Only when the pen manages to sheathe a thousand swords,
May it truly be considered to be mightier.


~

The sword has kept the pen in bondage for as far back as memory reaches,
And blood has filled our inkwells for a thousand generations.

~

The transubstantiation of this blood back into ink parallels that of water to wine.
The alchemical secret of this process is not lost, only forgotten.

~

If a saviour's message was that water is to be valued over wine,
Then our message today is that ink is to be valued over blood.

~

For men to value ink over blood, they must realize
That there is something more valuable than their own blood.

~

That value can be attributed to the greater worth of all men's blood.
Here is the recurrent sin of the fallen: Not seeing the forest for their veins.

~

For all men truly are brothers, regardless of race, status or enmity.
When one man hurts another, he hurts his own brother.

~

Retaliation for being attacked amounts to joining the ranks of the enemy.
In striking back at those who have harmed us, we join their cause & support it fully.

~

The word "enemy" is derived from the Latin inimicus.
The Latin word inimicus means "in friend".

~

Since all enemies are made by the division of friendships,
Friends are made in dividing the enemy.

~

In this dynamic lies revealed a choice every one must make:
The choice becomes which army to stand with.

~

We may choose to stand for the division of the enemy's ranks,
Or we may choose to stand for the division of our friend's ranks.

~

There is no other choice available to us.
One army grows while the other weakens.

~

The word friend is derived from Old English, "free" and "to love".
To seek revenge upon another is to surrender one's freedom and love.

~

Seperating one's self from the Beast inside is one pathway towards love.
This is accomplished by mastering the Beast inside and rising above.

~

This is how one becomes a true individual and friend to everyone.
Failure to do this leads back towards joining the ranks of the enemy.

NOTHING LEFT





Labour a life
Time to word it
Perfectly and find
There is no
Such thing.

Unwind and let
The eyes speak.
Only they see
Into the future.
Listen

To what
They say.
Know everything
Will be
All right.

THE VALLEY FRINGERS WHO LIVE ON BORROWED TIME






the Valley fringers who live on borrowed time
are feral and have itchy minds
(also, with the mountains calling
children, disheveled and alive)
they believe in Christ and Lennon, both awake,
are invariably interested in so many things-
at the present writing one still finds
resined fingertips hitting is it Freedom?
definitely. While transient faces boldly blurt
reported scandals of Mr. B and Miss R
....the Valley fringers care too much, below
Park City if sometimes in its cupola
star indigo and edgeless, the
little dipper shimmers like a satin quilt

GOOD NEWS





Have you heard the news, we all come from Africa.
Every single one of us a piece of her legacy
The living proof marked in our chromosomes
Genetic mutations like rings in a tree
Tracing back echoes of our history.
To say every human on earth is related
Is the truth being stated quite literally
To claim we're a family regardless of race
Is a fact presented with accuracy.
To stand in denial of these revelations
Is really quite telling. you see; so pardon my asking
What designs does your intelligence really have on me?
Now that you know we're brothers and sisters
Obviously you can level with me--
I'm an American, your countryman--related by blood.
Take the mask off, it's easier to see.
Oh wait, you need to guarantee your anonymity
How can that be, I thought we lived in the land of the free
Of course, that's right, you live a double life, I see.
Has your other half heard the Good News,
That we're all from the same family tree?
