This Matter

Updated on November 4, 2012

In consideration of density

that pressure predisposed

and vibrating its victory

its outgrowth is maddening ...

magnetized by its sheer will -

fallen, fixated, heavy.

Its horizon all measured

and weighing in slices

of colors knowing another

brighter, lighter, former

heaven beyond those shadows ...

those doubters too, know their

variations until the morning

there's so much to do ...

Hardened by the overcast

stuck in the residue of 'being' -

kicking and scratching

harnessing up for the familiar -

that persona, intact - acting

up a storm, complain about the rain

remaining, clinging on in triumph

staying on board, addicted to

the noise, that base, pulsating

keeping time, racing towards

infinity where we used to laugh

playing with forms for fun.

This identity is so strong

It grips and holds and honors,

admires, consoles and squanders,

coveting, envisioning a future self

tied up in biological senses

sustaining for that next hit.

The next attempted naming of things

remembered, banded in the past.

Covered by degrees of melancholy

sounds absorb their static

folding along the edge of the framing

leaping out of bounds and

slowly, perfectly going around,

down, down, down - the smell plants

its roots betray the soiled mess ...

its leaves have fruit to eat,

but protects its own harvest

feeding off its juice for a

succulant devouring, feasting

and ingesting itself ...

distracted by reflection.

      In consideration of density

      that pressure predisposed

      and vibrating its victory

      its outgrowth is maddening ...

      magnetized by its sheer will -

      fallen, fixated, heavy.

      Powerful and very clever. I thoroughly enjoyed this poem and now look forward to many more.
