Poem: The Lives of Men
The lives of men are silly still
Calmly bounding up a hill
What arrows edge can blur this glory
How can one thousand weasels tell one story?
Were not my breast to heave in struggle
My grandest choice to live and wish
She cannot fathom the depths of taking
Her only breath is still a gift.
So march on and mysteriously unravel
The packages of days gone like dust in tornado's wake
It’s not enough to feel your feelings
But feel them still, for feelings sake.
The broad brush of indiscriminate whining
The Fantastic gasp of endless, torturous explosion of life
A big bang not suitable for upper crust taste
So we’ll revel in something far less ugly
Count on me only as you take yourself for granted
I am prince and angel and whisperer of dark messages
I come from a land that cannot be spelled
It’s letter half-shaped by the devil’s cramped hand
I have risen from mountain-sides that shine reflected light
Out of the petunia gardens and into the crystalline sea
I am a cobra, you are my dance partner in this endless
Traitorous tango of troublesome desires.
How can you wish for something that will make you cringe?
So alas the sky sucks you up into it’s murky clouds and terrible sun
The gusts of wind are not gusts at all but spiders sucking life out of inborn needs
So dance on, sweet spiders, and feed at the buffet of nonsense. Know that your
Wantings have gone unnoticed. Know that your stories will go untold.
Know that your massive eyeballs will shrink oneday when your ancestors
Ask themselves who spawned their evil flesh.
So It is with excellent preoccupation that I wonder how a people so cold
And so warm and so hideously beautiful could aspire to create a universe devoid
Of compassion and dwelling in empathy.
To the ships they gathered like flies ‘round a lamp, only to lose their way.
One after ‘nother steps too close to the shine, enamored of luminous spray.
