Flowetry In Motion

These words seep out of the thin midnight and early morning cracks of time in my life. Every day these words release me. Hopefully they do something exciting for you as well.

Desert Cleaning

Ego thunders in the hills
lightening my load
cloudy verbal storm
my mouth
wielding rain's bow
echoes hit their mark
howl of nothing
bounces back
empty.

Sage brushes against
revelations of lava
which grow boulder and boulder
in the canyon of understanding
filling it in
damming it up.

Dry calm removes spinning
gear from head.

Sit in silence.
Take a real breath.

Remember that feeling.

Head back home
water fist blasts
rock wall away
erosive rush runs
lingering enlightenment aside.

Time Changes

It used to be easy
to be definite.
Now it is definitely easy
to be used.

Java You Think

Waiting for coffee
to begin
kicking my
rumbling engine
to life

flushing out
the crude
oil
igniting synapse

monsters and angels
begin to tango
earth flows
sky strobes

light floods the attic
greenhouse burns pink
eggs taste like ham
milk chills in the oven
as a pizza bubbles in
the fridge.

There is a knocking at
the door
but the door is now a wall.
Knock all you want
just keep time with my heart.
Coffee better kick
in soon
I am
fall
ing
a
part.

Timing is Everything

Fishing for cracks in time to
drift into with interest.

Seeking suitable sliver
of darkness to dampen
times unrelenting march.

Looking for fragmented
composition to complete without
consequence of a child that could
have used the attention
today.

Hangover

Only perfect quiet will do.
Never again, you mutter through
dry cracked lips trying to get your
dry cracked brain back.

Went to the garden where
Hunter, Hemingway and Dylan Thomas
frolicked with wild drunken eyes
seeing the world new
making each moment an
instant classic.

Pay-back is a bitch
aspirin is not working.
Life goes on
and last night
was almost
worth it.
