The importance of idolatry

Isn’t that people worship statues

And empty vessels;

It’s having something to believe in.

Something more tangible than

A being we can dial collect

Unless they want to receive our

Bitching phone calls.

We dial zero and listen to the

Elevator music of our souls,

As we go lower and lower into

The infernality that is being human.

Wedged between reason and insanity

Lies the great divide.

A place where life and death exist

Simultaneously and not at all.

Ensnared by the dust particles

Floating in the sunlit stagnation.

Sleeping in the day, waking in the night,

Having my unconsciousness raped

By a host of dime-store hooded dreams.

Silently, the darkness closes around me,

Letting myself fall into its cool arms, letting

Its symphony lull me again into

Dead sleep.

Cryptic Normality

leave a comment »

A life beyond the darkness

Is all most wish for.

Still the waves lap the shore

Of our consciousness

Slowly slapping the silvery

Synapses until epiphany comes.

We are the answer to the ultimate question…

And we are the counterpoint as well…

Saturn is Rising

leave a comment »

A bright spot in the night sky.

An omen of immortal proportions.

Moves. Sways. Explodes.

Can we equate ourselves to gods?

Sitting alone in our technological throne rooms.

Weeping into our soup.

As the diabolical monkey dances.

Daily, I battle

The tempest trying to

Blow my spirit into


It takes me by

Surprise and sucks the

Wind out of my chilled


Drowning on the land, it’s

Harder to breathe

Sleeping in a bed of


Slowly hands touch,

Lips meet, a run of electricity

Up my spine


Emptiness cannot be

Voided by this

Illusion playing…

Here I sit………..

……The ideas refuse to flow

Through me………

The stark, white smile of the page

Mocks me………….

…..Will I talk about Milton,

Robinson Crusoe, or the fact that

My mind feels like a flat tire, the

Substance is there but it just won’t roll

………….I’ve heard that ideas come strike

Like Lightning. Funny thing is I’ve been sitting in the

Middle of this mental storm and my lightning rod fails

To get stricken….sigh….

The World or Something Like It

with 2 comments

Clarity is rarely afforded

To the masses.

Driving in our cars

Listening to our music

Flipping off the other

Cutting into our lane.

A silicon dream bought by

Blood and sweat and rage.

Can we fix it?!?

No, we can’t.

An ageless angel

Sat upon the snow-covered

Mountain, a light against the darkness.

He tends to the dead and the dying on the


The men lay in pools of  blood

Calling to him. Asking for forgiveness

And salvation between gasps of

Flooded lungs. They sat calling, wanting

Only rest…They continued to call

Into the night unaware that


Is his name.

What are you?

The Sun?

Glaring at me with your

Cold, fervent fire.

You are nothing but

A blot of dark

Light in the sky

Burning, but

Not feeling.

Please let me be whole.

Let me feel your chilling

Heat before I give into

My immortality…

Let me see the light.

A Room with a View

with one comment

Sometimes, late at night,

I lie awake and wonder about

The Times.

I wonder what would  have

Been if we had stayed


Would we have been Two

Wolves clinging to each


Then lamenting the loss

Of the other by howling to

The Moon.

Or like vultures, waiting until

The death to finally devour

Each other.
