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.

King John

There once lived a man
named King John
and he was King,
King of everything...
except himself.

He ruled the jungle
mastered the sea
he managed to be
all he could be...
except himself.

Women, power and gold
servants doing just as told.
He sized all he saw
from far and wide
looking everywhere...
except inside.

Do you think King John
was happy with his ride
choosing his "out" over his
"In"side?-

Seasons Greedings

Walkin' in a
wasted and
wired winter
wonder
brand.

'Tis the season
to roll eyes
shrug shoulders
impatiently tap feet
hurry and buy now
beat traffic
grab rum
drink eggnog
forget.

Cash registers ring
are you listenin'?
Jingle Ling
what are we missin'?

Compassion and
humility hide
in front of our
faces
hands raised
rarely called on
as we fall
with the snow.

Undercurrent

Cold Sweat.
It is accelerating
again.
Life disc is getting burned
glitching on replay.
Edges of calcium deprived
reality skeleton
falling forward through time
slipping over
the questions beneath
your feet you ask
"Stop for a minute please"
and a year passes
before the last syllable
leaves your lips.

Drilled for Oil

Drunken bullets
stumbled across his
chest vomiting
red morsels
inspirationally into
the air.

A spray of meat filled spirits
dripped with slaughterhouse
draft.

Miniature mouths smack satisfactions.
Wet brick pantomimes
clot up choke holes
of juicy desire
while curiosity wads
swim the great escape.

Sunset,
brilliant gold
exhilaration turns
red.

Purple resignation
a black
victory.

Monday Meeting

The posturing salespeople
bullshit their way
into the war room
loudly proclaiming
contacts within every
living organism
and W-2's that could
pay off the national
deficit as
Marketing Masters
mutter about messaging
and how they need to change
the way the organisms
in the sales people's
back pockets
perceive the product suite
while the energetic engineers
engage in building better
mousetraps
in their
minds.

Now

Alive means
a means to
write
right now.

"Dead ain't creative"
ghost told me in dream.

Now
I am writing
you are reading
we are alive.
