I Will Show You

Faces change individually
We are mutations you and I
All blood puzzled
Bodies of flowing DNA
Needing to gasp with green fungi
Floating in arterial raceways

Born screaming in agony
Quick to smile
Frown
Die
There are only lies
Consequences in living color

All of history
Becomes a birth
With a + to DNA

So what do you say?
Let’s have children
In this modern way
Once a day
For good health…

The Muse

THE MUSE

I shall leave the city, the bustling town.
I shall walk to the outskirts of the wild plains,
And drink from heaven mystic rains,
Lying in the reeds, drunk upon the down.

My shoes are worn, of coats I have one.
I am a martyr of the furrows and the fields at play.
I live for adventure and the brilliant, gilded, golden day,
Come the weeping moon, or the soporific, gleaming sun.

Nearly Was Last Journey

As life flows like a river
the banks of the river also give way.
no boats man comes even closer
as much as to share
a minuscule hand of love

Life gradually surges
the speed of the heart hastens
is the estuary yet far away
someone say
mind beckons

the river of love
hastens
to merge with its mummy ocean
do they merge tonight
let us see
come besides me

Who By Decree

Upon human frailties
the collectors will prey
and who by decree
does ask for my soul

Cold is the night
colder still the shadow
that walks beside me

Knowing well
to whom it belongs
no,I need not see the eyes

For they would glow
an ocean blue
flecks of fire
from within
would streak across
like fury

You've come to collect
but I've not yet given
of what was asked

Next Time I Take A Taxi... [Random Challenge 2]

Next time I take a taxi
I'll ask about my friends
I'll ask if this one, that one
Have come to employment's end?

Is Paul still driving Mondays
How about that skinny girl
You know that one named Marcy
How about old Earl?

I miss the same old faces
Some customers have died
There was that kid from rehab
He was always fried

I used to love to drive them
I liked the job just fine
I miss seeing those faces
Like to think they're missing mine

I WILL SHOW YOU (The promises of parents)

I will show you how to hunt
And not to be hunted
I will show you how to fish
You will not beg for a fish
I will show you how to farm
You will never lack food

The Dark Eyed Sorceress and DÁIRÍNE Dell

Dimly lit were the fires one night and somber the gathered souls
a sadness lingered in every eye for one of their own was lost out in the cold
… the Storyteller surveyed them all, and in softened whisper said
Allow me to tell you a story… the story of DÁIRÍNE Dell

OUR NEW SPOUSE

Very few know
what
I say
mean
and
want to do

each one is living
in a homely prison
we all know
but can do nothing much at all
only live in a zoo like environment

get a shot
if lucky two

then what can anyone do
if virus does its task to screw
like a post divorcee
would love to

i am reminded of my love

My heart burns for you in the night
there can never be enough reason not to fight
for when you come around every month or two
I'm reminded of how much I missed you
though when we are separated I lose those thoughts
if he really loved me he would stay
but is this all just my brain
for when when he comes again

Friend

Friend

open-minded
always there
never judging
gentle and fair

since the beginning
this is you
a solid beacon
in the darkness shining through.

in those times
when I come undone
a word from you
and I cease to run

my touch-stone
wise and sure
you are like no other
your intentions pure...
my dear friend!

(thank you!)
