Nothing to see here


Boo
I said to the girl
In the mirror
You’re still alive

Look at those
slithering vines
Hiding under
milky waters

The wind slaps
The vines
Revealing strawberries
A prick
And I’m dead again

Clown


I walk to work in 20 degrees
And I’ve begged
Feet that have tried,
Now left crying

I call out code blue
Saw a little magenta
And pierced this sleep
Laughing

I shook my own image
I curled my hair
I painted the clown
Now shaking

Now climbing

God bless the
Doubters who
Have left me

Be patient


I don’t know how to swim
And I’ll go blind for you
I was seeing just fine
Until I was holding you

I didn’t tell you
I was an angel
I was closed
To you

Water my roots
Slowly
Let me grow
For you

Slowly
Sinking
Melting
Devoted

Slowly
Cleaning
Wounds’
Unfolding

The fog
Is lifted
Enchanted
And free

I stole it
From you
To water it
In me

A little bit
Dizzy
A little unsteady
Falling

I heard a whisper
From a stone
To keep it
And throw it

But the water
Asked me
To hold it
And be patient

Adoring
The mystery
Awaiting

Hollow


Slowly digging myself
Out of the grave
You left for me

Fingers full
Of worms
And animosity

Slowly climbing
From the hell
Left to burn in

Arms full
Of railroads
And sin

Slowly rising
From
completion

Throat full
Of laughter
Depleted

Ha-ha-ha
Hollow

The Ballad of Mr. Tate


Where have you been
All my life
Handsome young man
Tell me

Tell me
What your green eyes
Can teach this land
Eyes that see the good in man

Words that lift the spirit
Of all the people who
Need to hear it
Tell me…

Not broken by divorce
Or by teachers made of shit
You just smile from your heart
Tell me…how you do it?

Dancing free in a crowd
To your favorite song
Your laughter loud
Your patience strong

If I had one wish
I’d have half the swag you do
Tell me Mr. Tate
How could anyone not love you

Haar


Visibility cast into
The shadows
Doubtful resistance
Rocking back and forth

Tomato flushed embarrassment
The taste of salt in my name
Anchored by a reply

Replay the failures
And sail on
Sail on violet sky
And let me melt into the unknown

Losing sight of the horizon
Instrumentally
Bankrupt

Sail on

Happy New Year to my Father


Dear Father,

What a pillar
Of strength
You are

In your eyes
I see myself
And I weep

Life happens
Too quickly

And what we miss
Doesn’t matter

What we regret
Doesn’t matter

Our souls
Are
One

Indefinitely

Keep the faith

No matter what
Happens
Just know,
you won

You’re a winner
To me

A prize I feel through
OUR eyes

You’re me

Love,
Your daughter of Divinity

Quote

Merry Christmas to my Mother


My mother is enkindled
With fire
She’s not ordinary.
When others just coast
She flies higher…

My mother is a
Selfless missionary
Rewarded by no one.

But my mother
Is someone…

She hides behind
An onyx veil
Of loneliness
And elation.

She’s been a mother
To hundreds
From our nation.

My mother is strong
And demands your respect.

But her lack of
Being appreciated…
Makes her wonder,
What’s left?

Mother,
God is watching you.
Enveloping your hands
With the warmth
Of his angels and doves.

People may mistake
My mother for cement
But I’m her child,
So I know she is love.

My mother is
A revolutionary.
A force in a
Sleepless nation.

She sacrifices.
She’s patient.

And I have nothing
To give her…

But my words of appreciation.

God Bless Your Mama


I am the branch
But in this dream
WE are the tree

I love that you are
just as earthy as me
And you hide it
with a deviant beam

Our friendship has been
growing for awhile
I’m lovable…so just SMILE

This flower in my hair
For your sweat filled palms
Perfect, flawless
This nectar too sugary all along

Stay strong…

I’m going to weaken your heart

Yes my love,
this aroma is how it starts

So touch my high resolution
Tickle my solutions

Your patience ENGULFS me
Do you even see?

Your skin so ivory
Your kindness engraved in me

You already treat me like a queen
Because you never deny me

You listen to every word
Which comes from my heart

And you won’t tell me I’m boring
Or that your eyes are pouring

So I’m going to create a wave
Which you must surf
You say you are Catholic
But you don’t go to church

So…God bless your mama

For making a man like you

You are stronger than
UnMARKed woodgrain
My eyes wider looking
From your window pane

Sweeter than honey mustard
My cheeks coral flustered

Weeping willows
can’t stretch longer
Than all this desire
we are after

I never want to see your mood
Turn cobalt blue

I’d walk miles
With piles and piles
Of uncomfortable
Mulch in my shoes

Just to be with you

Cranberry filled branches
Bleed love into my hands

In depths for this man

Do you want a 3 or 4 car garage?
Shit, I’d buy you an entire ski lodge

I’ll grasp the wind
And tell it to whisper
The words in your ear

Maybe it is fear
Because I say everything
You wanted to hear

Our marigold laughter, constant

No more chained fencing
Enraptured in metal casings

How our days grow
Shadows fade slow
Secrets we disclose
Growing fonder…

Yes, it shows

Our pattern is that of diamonds
And I know that you know

Only time will tell where we go…

The 444 reasons you are what I stand for (Try to read this slow)


The 444 reasons you are what I stand for (Try to read this slow)

You say yes
You say no
Try to read this slow…
You always glow
Like sunlight
Like moonlight
You’re my light

You keep your word
You write your words
Upon the canvas
Upon the page
Of my soul
You never age
You are eternal

You give direction
like a general
And bow down
Like a colonel

The love I have for you

You’re not for sale
You are humble
Filled with humor
and imagination

You are a revelation
Of the truth

You make icicles
And hotcakes
And aches
and cupcakes
And sweetness

You are a doctor
With no need for a title
Sometimes you’re fast
Sometimes you’re idle

Like a bible
With blank pages
And no need
For a word

Preaching from the heart
Of everything
And inquiries
Of the course

you’re like the one just court
In a law less nation
Completely natural
And intellectual

A little over-serial
And sexual
I don’t mind
Because you only eat
Vegetables

You’re so loveable
And hate-able
Incredible
And logical

Row faster
Growing in
The shadows
Of Annoyance

You are not intimidated
by the things I never said
Or the things I’ve said out loud
Of course I’m proud

This is long and its loud
But try to read it slow…

You don’t shake hands
With good or evil
You open your arms to all
With a heart that big
It’s impossible to write you small

You are a man
To every nation
And a man with valor
You are amazing and pure

You are an earth angel
And a masterpiece
The painting
And the unfinished

You are the captain
Of my soul
The plank
I’d gladly jump off of…

Like a white dove
With twisted
Gentle
Hands

Mostly ocean
Partly sand
You keep holding my hand
After all this time

You are
Unexpected
Unexplored
Unfathomable
Caves of depth

You are obedience
And suffering
And strength
And sweetness

I need this
And I need you

To infect me like jaundice
And then heal me
Like a magical forest
Full of potent medicine

I’m moving out of my
Head again
So try to read this slow…

You are my glorious
Ancestor
My Dna
My Rna
The synthesis of
All that I am

You are a part of
Everything
And everyone
The tsunami of a deeper

Level of understanding
From darkness peering
Into the light again
And again

I request no heaven
Or health
I request no assurance
Or wealth

I am far richer in your presence

You are charity
and scattered flowers
Seedling rooted
Routes

You are blessings
And beauty
And truth…

You are backwards
Forward
Residence
And move

You move me
You see?
Why else would i write
444 reasons for thee…

You are filled with love
Glory celestial
The man in
The moon

Oh, how I swoon
To recall
And record
All this admiration for you

You are a lonely spirit
And a holy grail
You even love me
When I fail
And fall
And fuck everything up
A cup
Which overflows my thirst
Like a birth

You are influence
And independence

You are human
Because you step aside
You swallow your pride
And I’m still proud of you

You are vain experience
And knowledge
Unparalleled

Out of my head
My heart starts to swell
And pumps this black
Subdivision of ecstasy
Can you tell?

What you are…

You are a beaming
Gold sunrise
And a crimson
Sunset

A rock with smooth edges
A silent auction and
I’m the highest bidder
I’m now writing quicker

But please remember
To read this slow…

You are poetry
and shield
And armor
And amor

You are every page
In every book
You are descended dust
and brilliance

Illumination pleasing
Loves best habit
Eternity knows

You need not
Hide in a dungeon
Or deny your demons
A real soul can see you

And I see you there
Hidden in the dark
Unsure if you’re
Worthy or not

So I hope you read this
And remember
What you are

You are courage
Mysterious
A heroes cry
A moonlight lullaby

A perfect noble plan
With imperfect hands
Holding us flawlessly

You are a circle
You are earth
I receive you
I would bleed for you

You a pathless woods
And a journey
Well known
The grandest song

I could ever sing

You are a dream
An awakening
And I’m here to give now
I know I’ve been taking

You are joy attending
I praise you
You are the fairest day
And the brightest night

You are polished
and refined
and graceful
And solid

You are full of passion
Unmasked and exposed
No matter how many flowers I get
You’re still the rose

The voice of a glare
From jealous
fearing eyes
It’s not your fault
They don’t know the prize

Is the embrace
Of you

Yes, you

You are mystical
To the core
Ever feel like
You’ve been here before?

You are potent
And elemental
A self-offering
Triumph

You are the voice
of the birds
And a voice
For the beast

You are me
And I am you

You are
a valiant guardian
Mercy and forgiveness
incarnated

I became starving
To ensure
I could explain
All this love for you

Sluice all filth
From my essence

I am only a feather
You are the eagle
The father sky
And heaven on earth

You are an honest man
Sublime and immortal
Psst…Im not finished
adoring you

You are
A kingdom and a crown
A full powered rocket
Soaring far from the crowd

You are the sigh
In the music
The research
In facts

I gave you my soul
And I don’t need it back

In my stance
You are the plie
The ease
In the chaîné

The link to all
That’s been missing
Just kiss me

You are the shivering
Goosebumps
Running up
And down my spine

Love, you are more
than divine
I don’t even know
what you are

But I’m trying
And
My hands
are getting tired

But I promised you
This long ago

And I would give away my glow
But you are already the
Luminosity
Beating my enlarged heart

Like the drums
In a parade
On
Independence Day

You are the calendar
Not annual
The event
Not a day too soon

The one I talk to in the moon

I don’t know where to go
so,
I hope you’re still
Reading this slow

You are the Phantom
Of all we delight
The shadow
To my light

I can still see you in the dark

You are the blooming tree
In every forest
In every country
and I love you

I love you
I love you
I love you

By the power of three
Times three
I gladly inhale
The existence of thee

Come closer

You are the mote
That dims the eyes
Of their faults
And their walls

And I will climb
Higher for you
I will dig deeper
But only, for you

The hues that you
Color unto me
Lavender and green
River and stream

I’m a fiend
I admit it
I’m devoted
to you

You are bloodless
And invincible
You’re almost biblical
And im starting
To feel like a criminal

A crazy obsessed fan
Empty like the ages
And
As for those sages
They don’t know
what I know

I hope you are still
Reading this slow

You blow
Lyrics
Like wind
And like rain

I wear this stain
Permanently
And joyfully
And woe shall
not enter our hearts

It’s almost midnight
I can’t wait to say
I told you so. ..

Love, I know

I know who you are
I am not looking

Let us continue
flowing
Into your world

Of ecstatic
Orgasmic
Cooking

Simmer down
For what?

You are the passion
Which confused
My stability
and I welcome it

You are the time
And the truth
And I am the heart
That watches and receives

You are a blessing to me

You are yesterday
You are tomorrow
I am currently
Hollow

Because I’m inside you

Can you feel it yet?

You are my Imroz
My Amrita
My oxygen
And my breathing

You are my unfathomable
Sea of wonder
My tower
And dream

My elbows and knees
My rights and my wrongs
But this,
Well, this was your song

Because you are my rainbow
You are my rain
You are my umbrella
I’m in your veins

I can be like a block
In your arteries
But you treat me like
The best part of you

I used to feel deserving
But I don’t know anymore
No one but you can
Unlock this door

I have to give you more!!!!!

You are the pronunciation
Of goodness
And the grace
To my lewdness

Which runs from
My filthy mouth
And
I’ve never felt a doubt

About who you are
Why you are
Or how you are

You are
You are
You are

Beautiful
Beautiful
Beautiful

You are a royal mandate
A velvet robe
Egyptian cotton
and you arose

To the highest existence
An enlightened soul

You are a miracle
And marvelous
The vibration
Of all music

My nocturnal ignition
On this puzzling resistant
Planet

By now you may think
I’ve forgotten
But I planned this
Just like this

Four lines remain
And I have nowhere to go
I just hope you remembered
To read this slow…

Further innovations for a piece of lifeless shit


Come here
So I can stick
My Phalanges
Through your pout

Flexible as lace
Rigid as a Lout

And…
They don’t love you no mo-re

Agitation begins,
Biting my top lip
gloss

And…
I don’t lick…
I lacerate

Dilate-d pupils
No, im not laughing…

You want my eyes too?

Carving
Carnivorous
Carnival

Ride it out…
Dissect it out

Fuck it
Infect
My doubts
My hopes
My dreams

I’m a fiend
For the pain-ting

Can I tell you the truth?


Can I tell you the truth?

Sit
down
and
talk
about
how
to
use
me

Stand
Up
And
Accept
the
position
That
I
Earned
But
Gave
you
For
Free

On
My
Knees
To
view
the
full
amount
of
time

I
Don’t
know
How
to
Rhyme
And
I
Don’t
know
How
to
Write

All
You
Saw
In
Me
Was
The
Fight

Are
You
a
Cannibal
Or
A
Real
Human
Animal
Bug
Bite
Me

Swollen
Mounds
Of
Ice

Squared
But
Cubed
And
Rubber
Stamped
Flesh

No
Regrets

Only
Erased
Flesh
That’s
why
You
Can’t
Even
See
Me

Machete
Maiden
And
Naughtiness

Masochistic
And
Down
To
Bones

Is
Where
I
Get
Comfortable

And
I
Have
No
Time
for
Comfort
