Poems in Cemetery

Impromptu Landing
Did you know then,
how it would end?

Fragmented stares
a star commodity
famous and infamous
in a word
absurd.

Don't mind the Art
imaginary farce
capitalistic,
communistic,
greedy
ant hill
or-deal

A little foreign exchange
from the dark side
Left side
Left side of the road
Left-Wing
Left-over and out.

Are you on a mission from GOD?

In L'America,

maybe even today,
worshiping
the third eye
dollar sign
pyramid above
burning Logos
to dust
in GOD WE TRUST
or bust.

Outside
I couldn't
believe
your sigh
nor mine
our sense of relief

Knowing nothing
owing nothing
Surrender-ing
to another I-Ching edge
knowing you minus the ledge
equals powerful
mind altering
know-ledge

"Killers on the Road"
Another movie roof top metaphor
to close the Door
to end the feast
of friends
forever wanting

More and Amore

So ride that snake
and eat your cake
forget my name
remember your game.

Silent seduction
stare into my eyes
and give me your hand
in this promised land.

On Any Given Sunday

Hi Scarface1300,

I tried to allude to the real meaning behind this poem, without spelling it out. But I suppose the beauty of art is that there is freedom of interpretation. Thanks for voting up and beautiful.

Hi mckbirdks,

I was hesitant to post this one. Like you said: "an awful lot is going on..." Perhaps too much! Thanks for giving it a whirl.

I have written a poem about Cemetery but not good as yours.

Images bursting like hand grenades in swift sequence...Each line giving rise to those thoughts existing on the edge of our perception...

" to end the feast of friends forever wanting " trades on your experiences in P.I. with wonderful juxtaposition...

My experience was quite different...1966 Subic Bay and Manila was awash in drugs, prostitution, and crime...Never did learn to like baluts...

Voted up, beautiful, and evocative ( I added this last button )...Larry

Hello Raciniwa,

Impromptu means unplanned, sudden or unprepared. This poem was inspired by a string of impromptu landings!

...yes .... I am with Mr. Pacino on this one - your writing and its poetic reflections often require a re-read in order to grasp its inner meaning which to me is the reflection of a great writer who has a lot to say - and can say it very well .....
