Let the eyes see the world for what it is, majestic

Until our last

Watching the years roll by
things come and go away
like fitfull dreams things pass
with each day until our last

Dream Again

we make our dreams do our deeds so that we can dream again

When the fog clears

sitting in the sand
waiting for the next
big wave to come
take me to a foreign land
the tide that thunders ever
so loud, edging nearer
when the fog is gone
the way will be clearer

monuments decaying from cancer
limestone drying in the sun
as the wind tears the layers away
once buried in the sand
now presiding over the desert land
nothing last forever buddha said
so the city dies, and the sphinx
slowly turns her head
the day is coming when sand
is all that's standing in our stead
our history dust for the winds

At last

armored bank cars torn to shreds
buses and trains lay upturned
a sideways world now painted red
the sun has left the sky
in the sea the moon does hide
cities now jigsaw puzzles
never to be put back togheter
the mountain now lay flat
the rivers run off track
man has sealed his fate
at last........

Sour grapes
and thorned roses
lost time
and broken dreams
within my mind
their cause imbedded
like a spreading disease
leaving me without means
and end to this
that's what we need
before it's too late
and my heart no longer bleeds
watching humanity
in a world of insanity

Thursday, December 24, 2015


The thin cord of friendship
broken too many times
leaving it too short to repair
it's a loss this parting in despair
but what did you expect....

Calmness flowing from within
gives rise to all possibility

Tuesday, December 22, 2015


News, news, news,
some good, some bad
always changing
fluent and free
like dreams of tomorrow
when we're willing
we can truly see

Bring it on

It knocks me over when I stand
and every time I have it tight
it slips though my hands
to make another ourtagous demand

Sunday, December 20, 2015

She's waiting

She's waiting
yes waiting
for me
like a gallant
misty sea

Breaking Down

There is a time when straight is drawn too tight
and snaps into bizzar and war is raged
so stumbling hopelessley across the years
and wall crumbling as all continue the fight
all this breaks down reason and drives fun out
with empty heart and empty head
he travels hand in hand in depression  and disbelief
no pot of gold at the end of his rainbow to bring relief

Friday, December 18, 2015

senses dull

Seventh sense dull, lost without pointing a finger,
unaccomplishment crowding up empty space,
let love thaw from my lonely heart....

Thursday, December 17, 2015

From my eyes

I'll give you the world
seen from my eyes
full of mystery
and surprise......

Wednesday, December 16, 2015


Crowded memories
my life line tonight
hit with nostalgia
caught in hindsight

Tuesday, December 15, 2015


Roam the world by freighter
read the ad, the time of your life
is waiting to be had
curiously I replied
and waited for word
for  when the journey
was to begin
word came
and I scurried onboard
with high held chin
the cargo hold
was to be my unhappy home
dark and cold
a month was to pass
before we reached port
number one
and my eyes strained
at first glimpse
of the sun
I pressed for a reason
I had to know
what was going on
everything I imagined
turned out wrong

Monday, December 14, 2015

slipping away

slipping away
no not tonight
slipling away
I'm afraid
slipping away
are you sure it's safe?
slipping away
I don't want to go alone
but I'd ranter be there
than sitting, waiting  here
for the breaking point
is quickly drawing near
trapped for a moment
at the gate of hopelessness
that place they call hell

The swelling

Have you ever seen the swelling
while sitting upon the rocks
reflected moonlight glows
upon the darkness of the sea
gaint, jagged, bits, and broken lines
that chase the waters out into the distance
where waits the horizon of mystery

Saturday, December 12, 2015

Waning Day

Are the thoughts in my head antiques
and the feelings in my heart obsolete
must these expressions be discrete
should I chain them down
or preserve them for display
must I become a silhouette
in the waning day?

Nothing is ordinary, all is unique, each and every day

Thursday, December 10, 2015


The men of the island were gathering
they were collecting old trees and vines
for years and years, they had great plans
they were building something divine
they made the vines into huge ropes
as thick as an arm, and a stand as big
as a pyramid with two huge arms
they hooked their ropes to the arms
and employed the local animals
and they pulled and pulled
until they had those arms to the ground
they fastened the ropes to the side
of their island, then they all climbed
onto the arms and prayed to the wave gods
to set the ropes free, and away they all flew
into an endless sky of dreams....

The mystery of our days run deeper than our understanding

Tuesday, December 8, 2015


Where is everywhere, right here, and now, that's all there is, always

Monday, December 7, 2015


He walked into the room
plunged himself
into attention's center
this place he always
made home
he devoured attention
behind he left his victims
standing helplessly
crazed, he made habit
out of disaster
though this was
all unintended
it was the result
of his presence...

Sunday, December 6, 2015

Across the miles

Across the miles
and over the years
laughter and good times
and pain and tears
wrapped in my well
soiled blanket
of memories

Saturday, December 5, 2015

Good old days

If we're really honest with ourselves,
we have to admit that the good old days
really weren't all that good.....

Friday, December 4, 2015

The beginning

We build the beginnings of our end
and live through the decline, day by day

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Seek Love

Life is chaos, that's the short and simple of it....
seek love to give it meaning and balance

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

He remembers

and so came frustration
with his years
always disaster to confirm
his many fears
yet he remembers times
when he was young
and the stories
of the fall of Eden
and the day evil
made its stand

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Say you won't

Each day begins
as an apocalypse
without you
love me please
and I will too
I dare you
oh, words
how you fail
to express
a sinking heart
filled with fear
oh, don't leave
love drowning me
help me, hold me
don't ever leave me
say you won't
burn me from memory

I lost my beloved Amatsu on Saturday...
he was with us through so many things,
eighteen years of unconditional love and joy,
and such a big big part of my life....
heartbroken doesn't even come close to describing
the loss that I'm feeling.... so long my friend,
know that you were truly loved.

All I want to do

There is going to be a train wreck tonight
but all I want to do is sleep
well, they say the sky is going to fall
and the world will be destroyed
but all I want to do is sleep
the thunder pounds, the sea rages
and guns sort out the crooks from sages
but all I want to do is sleep
vanity and lust acknowledge each other
with smiles and tongues
and missiles are shot off
headed towards the sun
but all I want to do is sleep
well, look, California has gone for a swim
and the schools have started teaching Russian
but all I want to do is sleep

Long Goodbyes

when love walked out the door
hearts closed down for years
tears dried and hearts froze
 all was lost in time, so sing
songs of long goodbyes

Saturday, November 28, 2015

Yeah, you

What are you trying to tell me,
haven't you said enough, stop
I heard music, it's roaming softly
through the cells in my head
don't chase it away, leave it
no righteousness, nor cream
colored lies, shouting
proper ways to live
improper lives
you, yeah, you
shut up and go back to hell

Friday, November 27, 2015


He received a tongue lashing
so severe it sent him into a frienzied
retaliation of blasphemous anger and rage
quickly he seized his intended victim
and the moment of volunerability
brought on by surprize
as his friend now succumbed
to the superhuman strength of fury
his sanity slipped when he heard
life pass and now he's confined
to a padded cage

Worms and Lizards

Arrogant bastards
feeding themselves
on worms and beans
sitting on alters
next to greens
pounding on the heads
of their court jesters
clothing the king
with tar and feathers
gossip house
for the insane
rumors of nuns
snorting cocaine
avoiding the snow plows
chasing dairy trucks
mistaking them for milk cows
well you woke up
to an opera in your head
between the rocks
your feet in the clouds
the straight jacket
in the closet now
and your faimily
resting in the grave
your companions
lost their heads to the kind
for his chicken hair suit
you'd be next
but the bishop saved
your life when
he let the church bell ring
crowded slums
and your favorite sluts
would like to see
you die
and then feed the buzzards
or maybe taken away
to play with worms and lizards

Out in time

Things are much bigger than they seem
so glad, we're just passing through
making the best of idle amusements
on a roloving zoo
circling the sun
complex puzzles
missing pieces
out in time
creating heaven and hell
without resulting thought
mimicking the pantomime

Ocean Relief

There's something about the ocean
we can't quite put our fingers on
it lulls us, and steals our anger away

Monday, November 23, 2015


Two strangers
goodbye love
goodbye friend
strange the way
thingss turn out
unwilling to give
or to take
not one, but two

Sunday, November 22, 2015

Don't hold back

Don't hold back
that road to tomorrow
and bind yourself
to toil in sorrow
don't grieve for all
those obtainable lies
throw away
your hollow disguises
bring out that stranger
that lives deep inside
dying for the darkness
in which you force him to hide
bring him out
that inner vitality
release him
cast away the schakles
of opposing reality
suppressing them
is to no avail
for you must realize
your strengh
will not fail

Saturday, November 21, 2015


The darkness breaks through
the light.... and in its wake
tragedies follow
the smouldering fires of hell
that forged the iron church bell
arise once more
as we fall into the hands
of the dream maker
and his magic lore
taking us to places
scarcely imagined before
until slowly, with resolve
the world is restored

Mr. Death

They caught you thowing
names around
like you knew everyone
in town
but you ran
when you saw
death's smile
and your friends laughed
'cause that's not your style
you took to the street
living on your feet
using everyone you could
with the same feeling
as pounding holes in wood
but your laughter you could
not refrain
when your friends expressed
their pain
so they ran you off
and left you held up
in a barn loft
then the preachers came
you took pride
in putting them down
they left puzzled
and surprized
your bitterness tore
sorrow from their hearts
and tears rained
from their eyes
a lynch mob marched
towards you with pride
as you ran off
with the mayor's bride
teaching that woman
never foreseeing the consequence
you used her up
in the years of running
threw her aside
and said goodbye
but she learned
your ways too well
and caught you
shot you, cursed you
to hell
and left you to die
gasping your last breath
you caught a glimps
of a smiling Mr. death

Bad Karma

Slowly and hesitently
I was dropping
dying over years
festooned treadmills
and torn faces
detail was an oversight
or an afterthought
most of the time
and advice was
always passed off
as hot air
and tried after all
attempts at resourcefulness
had failed
passed off
bad karma
twice over

Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Join Us

The distasteful endurance of life
the somber faces, blank eyes glaring
beyond the past days of reason
voices chanting, bekoning
join us in the beyond...
where all is waiting

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

She Falls

She's waiting for me
and I'm running
and you know
she's been crying
yeah, see she's going
away on a train
by the sea
now I stand
alone, on the platform
watching and waiting
she falls

Monday, November 16, 2015


Sounds of thunder outside my door
the  pouring rain is all that's heard
only this and nothing more
anticipation abounds
the storm continues
coming in from over the sea
coming here to visit me
bright flashings
illuminated skies
again comes the thundering roars
crashing down my front door

Sunday, November 15, 2015

Move me

Move me closer
speak to me
and I'm changed
and getting better
yes, all the time
and now is now
and what we are
working towards
we've got
and knowing
humbleness walks
through my heart
and so I've stopped
hurting myself

Closed Eyes

The mad dreams
too much tonight
these closed eyes
conceal my fright

Friday, November 13, 2015

Sum of its parts

I was prone
alone contemplating
the dark velvet envelope
which surrounded me
oh, so often
just lying, considering
the sum of its parts
