quite literally
they cannot spill out of my mouth into the toilet bowl fast enough

green, neophyte, insensate

swirling around in the clear, shallow water, they almost look like they are swimming

ancient, ferric, turpentine

its midnight on sunday afternoon and the morning never felt so far away

verily, salt, halcyon

pulling the lever, they swirl away, the letters sloshing together into a murky soup

gestalt, vermilion, fear

they turn into equations with no solutions when i bring my hand away from my mouth, wiping

ouroboros, nineteen, baseless

i know better than to brush my teeth

golden, gale, corridor

i know better than to go back to bed right after

demilune, murmur, mirror

linoleum, throat, nightgown

listless, lucid, dreamer

Soul, devour me,
Like happenings you accost,
I'm happy now you've gone.
Coal, empowering,
Vikings clap, bugles call,
Climbing walls, kind regards,
A human heart finds us all,
Claims to what Buddha was,
But could it not?
Where do I belong?

Averno.
Y me escapé de las fauces del infierno
Aterrado, completamente perplejo
Por peldaños de piedras fui subiendo
Lentamente un dolor me fue deteniendo
Un dolor que peldaño tras peldaño fue creciendo
Agudo malestar en cada uno de mis extremos
Revisé buscando la causa de ese malestar intenso
Solo para descubrir cuatro grilletes de huesos
Calaveras arrastradas con cada movimiento
Alaridos en las profundidades reclamaban mi regreso
Daban la alarma de un escape en progreso,
Alguien intentaba salir del reino del sufrimiento
Era yo, que me arrastraba para no ser descubierto,
Poco a poco continuaba mi doloroso ascenso
Agotando la energía de mi andrajoso cuerpo
Entonces advertí que no era humano, era un espectro
Un ser pusilánime en un cuerpo descompuesto
Un ángel caído tratando de burlar su encierro
Sin previo aviso una carcajada me fue estremeciendo
Una maligna risa resonaba en el infierno.
Abro los ojos, estoy en mi cuarto, en el frío suelo
Me levanto rápidamente, me observo en el espejo
Soy humano otra vez, solo fue un sueño
Pero la carcajada sigue resonando como un eco
En la profundidad, en la oscuridad de mi aposento
Y se añadió un comentario aún más siniestro
No te descuides, aún te espero…

I hear your voice upon the wind. 
It calls me, to come to you
I follow the sound unable to resist like a Siren call to sailors at sea.
Your eyes meet mine. 
The eyes of a lioness who wishes to devour me
You pounce upon me and bring me to the ground onto your bed of lilac and lavender
I am helpless in your jaws about my neck.
Your fangs pierce deep into my flesh.
Your jaws crush my last resistance.
Your golden flaxlike mane falls upon me like waves of soft sea mist
In my mouth and in my eyes, I look through the golden net which binds me
Your lips find mine. 
Your tongue darts into my mouth and upon my face with the kisses of my submission.
Your kisses go down my chest with your golden hair softly following behind.
Your kisses rise back to my face with your hair all about me forming the net of my capture.
Two breasts land upon my body like twin fawns playing in a meadow.
They move and glide up and down my body.
I reach to grab them, so smooth and soft
You are upon me now and our bodies move like the sway of the trees in the wind.
I am in you.
You have devoured me.
There is no more me, only you my Calypso.

An Invitation,
Tracing my path,
Jason Vorhees,
Heart racing,
bracing myself,
Protein and more cheese,
Chores for violations,
Head and shoulders,
Knees and the space between.

Babies and family and warm woolen mittens these are the things in which we are smitten. Sunlight and rain on my face all insane one patters one warms yet both matter the same. Porpoise and dolphin like gorilla and chimp similarities to cuddle yet don’t make good sense. Oh why are these thoughts so loud in my head of things that concern me and things that are said. Is my heart crying out and my logic repressing or is common sense keeping myself from undressing. Baring soul inner thought is scary at best when guessing who’s trustworthy or in whom to invest. Light of day brings rising clarity for each intense charity of ones mortal soul and the damning sobriety. So tortured inspired and desired the same within friendship and love and all things a flame. Now dry from the patter and warm by the fire to cuddle desire and wash off the mire for all the heart wants is all it requires and that my dear friend is all that must matter.

Rise oh sun oh immortal flame to wake the soul to play again. To run and dance and jump for joy and warm the hearts of girl and boy. Beam down your rays of healing light confirming natures pure delight and bringing forth more glee than blight no winter yet in this souls sight. May brilliant joy and exaltation be your gift and coronation leading toward the beach of plenty makes one feel like being twenty.

Wish upon dream upon starry starry night. Let your spirit take its flight to one you’ll hold extremely tight. Embrace your dream with passion free exposing all intentional glee for daylight breaks and dawn reveals lovers heart… eternally.

They met like the first time rainbow met sun shower, wave met sandy seashore, and heart met Cupid’s arrow. They laughed like the first time green eyes gazed brown, sunup chased sundown, and chuckles met deep frown. They learned about foreign subjects on local soil, shared time in familiar toil, and explored how their lives could coil. They wondered how we two could meet and find their feet and live to eat and rinse repeat and begin again and keep the peace for family sake.

She touched my heart with smile on face depositing hope of our loves deep embrace. Unlocking a gate of emotions oppressed from that bygone time cloaked in cynicism and hate. She used her power applied her grace revealing a world where nothing waits and the weak grow strong those loved and displaced. Then together we pledged to always be true to all that matters to me and to you and to guard this ethereal space.

How much does she do with things of me and you
Throughout the light of day
Pining life away

How much does she do for people in the room
From cradle to the grave
All rising and depraved

How much does she do keeping busy till night falls
Exchange excitement for a fall
Off to slumber fore he calls

How much does she do no time left for you
Wanting only to be near
And support when things go queer

How much does she do unwilling ne’er to bend 
Or experience more than friends 
No intimacy on the mend

How much does she do 
Till the end

Open lies, a world full,
Ocean tides, border known,
Mapped upon a mobile phone,
Burning eyes, wait in line,
A door, for more control;
Face comes first, defines,
Then maybe later stones.

Which would be more alone?
Sitting German in Lederhosen,
Burning all my former clothes,
Formal close, cutting ties;
Or a heart of glass, love inside, 
Which fights a world, nothing like?

Of stem and leaf,
Love fed at ease,
Of ends and meet,
Of fair and sweet,
When we speak of things
We speak so freely,
Of flesh and teeth.

Shanty after shanty,
See the men at sea,
See the heights they reach,
Lows so permanent and deep.

Well, that's sweet, 
Yes, that means, 
Go ahead and feel,
Just know, there is no you and me.

holding the box between two fingers so it does not fall
the hand is not pandora’s; she has been dead for centuries
inside the lid, an amateur’s attempt at a cumulonimbus
the sky behind them greener than the clouds before a tornado
the clouds themselves whiter than the dust after
what will become of the box?
will it house bangles and bracelets and small forgotten memories?
will the hinges rust and the sky become separated from the ground?
will it ever find its way home?

In a sense, where you?
Fear if you see hex screws,
Warranties irked, jerks,
I want to repair my life,
It's enough to affect them too.

What is the leg's next move?
What some other leg says do,
Running until bears get you.
You get 'get well soons' 
But lost one of the duo,
Best friends adieu.

To use a phrase, shall I fetch them too,
Listen to Daniel Dumile in my bedroom?

Obsessions 

What power you hold over me...
Every action, every thought 
Is just a push in your direction 
Feeding into the obsessions, 
Lost connections, misdirections, 
Absolutely positively coerced into these affections 
By a brain constantly seeking tiny moments of perfection. 

Though you kind of must admire this curation of adoration, 
All the mental efforts required to keep up the constant cultivation 
Of this undisturbed fixation, 
The impropriety and distraction 
of a single-minded meditation, 
All these mind-numbing, pacing, 
clock-like rotations 
Theoretically leading this obsessive mind to pure elation, 
The uninhibited fruits 
of this persistent dedication. 
Happy sighs and exhalations...

But then...
The sobering realization 
That somehow life existed 
before this shrine’s erection
And perhaps the cracks start to show, 
Unexpected but apparent imperfections, 
Initially denied and resolutely rejected, 
The shattered shards of a crystal ball that disagrees with my projections, 
The deflation, depletion, extortion
Of my vexation, 
Maybe leading to complete and utter exoneration... 
The disintegration of my fascination. 
Maybe someday...

But for now I prefer to float in my comforting contemplations, 
Giving in to the infatuation, 
These happy delusions 
of my mind’s incarceration. 
And if the worst this should cause is 
These false exhilarations, 
Then I shall stay here for a while 
And enjoy the scintillating sensations 
Of my obsessive ruminations. 

A
Temporary
Salvation.

Drawing breath, intending a scream,
Time passes, wake from dreaming,
Sometimes excessive zeal demeans,
So squeak like the law itself,
Garlic men, in the broadest sense,
Concentrate on the bread when pressed,
But what of butter and how it melts?

Even of appalling strength,
Does it correspond to depth, or meaning?
Rocking chair, what have you seen,
Beside the bedside and people watching?
Even if time lacking, population immense,
Despite desperate pleas: fences.

wrap up in a blanket

and go to sleep.

Ball fist, if wishes could talk,
One would place their chips down;
If life were a play, or odd film,
Kings would admit our wrongs,
But it's not.
Wishing could be in your head,
Talking all things that god is,
Appending the self at the end,
Thinking itself less important,
But it's not.

Debbie downer of many outcomes,
Money protected against downturns,
Fathered from powerful maelstroms,
Freshly showered out of sleep,
What is deep? What is to and from,
Blue sea, who flowers their queen,
Without a penny, empty bellied, 
'You let them down, son'
Sour cherries, as he devours many
Let them down yourself, please,
Out of envy, twenty thousand leagues.
