Razor-Sharp Love

razor-sharp love
I want
all of you
but there just isn't
enough of you
behind the silk
like a bullet in my heart
you poison my soul
with your horrible longing
you terrify
and immerse me
into your darkness
a fleeting memory
of your caressing tongue
on my chest
that's what you are
a black veil of
loneliness.

Leave No Traces Fair

Leave no traces fair,
Nor flowers lily white,
No notes, nor wisps of hair,
Nor passions of the night.

Cling not to what you know,
Nor proud, nor humble be-
Let honors be bestowed
On ranks of vanity.

Seek freedom's inner essence
And light that shines in truth-
For fame conceals senescence
That clips the wings of youth.

I Want to Be Where the Palm Trees Are

I want to be where the palm trees are,
Upon some sunny and sandy beach,
I want to be away from it all-
Out of touch and out of reach.

I want to lose myself in the sea
Or rest upon some moss covered rocks,
To roam about-wild and free-
Away from the crowds, schedules and clocks.

I want a blank canvas to paint anew,
I want a blank page and a childlike mind
To sit on a hilltop with a scenic view,
To see the world to which I was blind.

Just Know That I Miss You

Just know that I miss you,
And now I know the facts
That you were never married,
That it was just an act.

It really doesn't matter -
What has been done and said -
Just know that I love you
And I'm not quite mad.

Yes, I've seen through women -
The things that they would say -
But I would not believe them
Or give them time of day.

And if you really miss me,
You need not look too far,
Because I always loved you
For being who you are.

We Danced and Shook

We danced and shook,
took little steps and
tiptoed through
the darkness,
smiled in the wind,
spoke, reached
and touched,
we waltzed and shared
a multitude of
memories,
we stroked and opened,
whispered and cried,
held and caressed,
sang, stood, and ran,
we breathed each note
into each other's ear-
I understood,
you heard,
I smiled as you
revealed, rejoiced

Jesus Burger

Feeling spiritually hungry,
I stopped by at an
Internet writers' joint,
Where I was served with
A Jesus burger, well done,
On a mystic Sufi bun,
With kosher pickles,
Kabbalic lettuce and
Shamanic tomatoes,
With that secret Zen sauce
And transcendental Maya,
With a large order of
Wicca fries and a bottle
Of flavored holy water,
And I ate it all up
Hook, line and sinker
Until I got a heartburn
From all the baloney -
So I started writing
My postmodern Marxist

A Change You Can't Believe In

A Change You Can't Believe In

A change you might believe in
Was slowly compromised,
And nothing was accomplished
To better people's lives.

No bold decisive action-
Just posturing on the floor
Of the House and the Senate
And talks behind the door.

The public was left out
From hearings and debates,
Save for some town hall shouts
About the fascist state.

And so a monstrosity
Came to the light of day-
Two thousand plus pages

She Storms My Brain

She storms my brain
in psychedelic colors
and discordant rhythms,
leaving me breathless
as I explore new shapes
and forms of knowing.

Like Lucy in the sky
and Marijane-
she storms my brain-
my strange new flower
with feverish bright petals
that leave me mystified.

She dances to the synesthetic
music of red and orange
notes that I can taste upon
my tongue, laughing like
a transparent angel
in a warm summer rain-

On This Tranquil Night

On this tranquil night
I imagine you and me,
Rekindling tender memories
Of how it used to be -

Some say the past
Is an illusion,
That the only reality
Is the here and now -

But what is here and now
If not a reliving of things
Long gone and anticipating
Things to come?

Life is an interplay
Of perceptions and illusions,
Of things that we see
And the things we imagine -

Anarchy Is For Lovers

They came together-red and black-
In a revolt like no other,
And there is no turning back,
For anarchy is for lovers.

The truth is greater than the lies
Of hollow gods and class divisions,
For loving hearts all rules defy
With a transcendent common vision.

No wars, no boundaries, no states,
No need to subjugate each other,
No rich, no poor, no one to hate-
Just peace and love for one another.

They came together-young and old-
No hippie freaks, but with a vision-
They came together in revolt
Against all wars and all divisions.
