The Revealer

(ROOSEVELT)

He turned aside to see the carcase of the lion: and behold, there was a swarm of bees and honey in the carcase of the lion … And the men of the city said unto him, What is sweeter than honey? and what is stronger than a lion?—Judges, 14.


The palms of Mammon have disowned
The gift of our complacency;
The bells of ages have intoned
Again their rhythmic irony;
And from the shadow, suddenly,
’Mid echoes of decrepit rage,
The seer of our necessity
Confronts a Tyrian heritage.

Equipped with unobscured intent
He smiles with lions at the gate,
Acknowledging the compliment
Like one familiar with his fate;
The lions, having time to wait,
Perceive a small cloud in the skies,

Out of Sync

Out of sync!
And this seems to have happened,
Within a blink!

No time to think!
A distinct change has come.
All coverups by those who hoodwinked...
Realize those acts are done.

Out of Sync!
Reason or rhyme.
Even those blind have felt a shift.
Nothing remains,
To allow a comfortness!

Out of sync!
Out of places to hide.
There is no where to run.
To sanitize tainted lives!

Leaving One Taken For Granted Missed

When accessible and available,
A taking for granted took place.
When hard to find and out of touch,
A curiosity arises.

Questions are asked.
And a search begins.
But that which is sought...
Has long gone away.

Leaving one taken for granted,
Missed!

With that which had been misunderstood,
Now comprehended.
And a wishing for more,
Of what was there to freely give remembered.

Forever you, the unwashed Russia!

Forever you, the unwashed Russia!
The land of slaves, the land of lords:
And you, the blue-uniformed ushers,
And people who worship them as gods.
I hope, from your tyrannic hounds
To save me with Caucasian wall:
From their eye that sees through ground,
From their ears that hear all.

Slow down and run

Running after dreams that have come and gone
Running in hopes of crossing the finish line with a personal best
Running for the glory only seen and celebrated in a reflection
Running to be what I want to be
Running to see what it takes to achieve
Running to avoid the powers that be
Running will lead me to the front
Running. Always running. Except when contemplating or compensating.

Blue

Blue, but you are Rose, too,
and buttermilk, but with blood
dots showing through.
A little salty your white
nape boy-wide.Glinting hairs
shoot back of your ears' Rose
that tongues like to feel
the maze of, slip into the funnel,
tell a thunder-whisper to.
When I kiss, your eyes' straight
lashes down crisp go like doll's
blond straws.Glazed iris Roses,
your lids unclose to Blue-ringed
targets, their dark sheen-spokes
almost green.I sink in Blue-
black Rose-heart holes until you
blink.Pink lips, the serrate
folds taste smooth, and Rosehip-
round, the center bud I suck.
I milknip your two Blue-skeined

A Single Cigarette Sucked Down

just a single cigarette sucked down shrinking
chemical cocktail includes Hydrogen Cyanide
gas chamber poison does not make you a Jew...

your cig choice chosen quantities
slow time lit cannot
compare to agony clawing gas...

chamber walls holocaust
smokers time dying in mass
numbers global can recant...

your cig choice chosen quantities slow time lit cannot!
compare to agony clawing gas chamber walls holocaust!
smokers time dying in mass numbers global can recant!

Darkness Uncovers

`

Belying this despised state
you hunch upon shuffling feet,
pondering the crunch of browned leaves.

Burrowing this dusty soil
you hide beneath scurrying paws,
forgetting the crash of billowy waves.

Blowing out raspy breath
you pucker withered lips;
release cotton-downed doves.

Bellowing against the horizon
you herd the flock from grazing;
shackled gates embrace nightfall.

The Innocence of Gold

I flicked of the TV
At a news report
About another child
Lost in innocence no more

I was once
An innocent child
Living so happy
Till I was dealt
One of life's blows

And just like the children
I learn of today
Losing their innocence
That's torn from their souls
It drowns us all
In the degradation of life

I want to scream
I want to shout

The Plated Armadillo

By all measure you are unusual
You have armor plates that protect
You can roll into a ball and inflate
You spur confounded respect

God was very clever when designing
Why not fur instead of a leathery shell
You're unlike any other normal animal
For some reason…you are special

Your uniqueness distances you from all else
Is this why you try to stay out of sight
To avoid confrontation from inquiring minds...
burrowing into the ground and hunting at night

Other Armadillos find you to be quite ordinary
Can't understand why people are starring
Each creation and plan under the heavens
Has a reason... remember this when comparing
