over(t) time

 

                                                                                                                                                             

disband(i)ed cadres operating on multiple wave forms centered in the big top

mastering abandoned art forms in rustic surroundings, jealously guarded by emotionless outbursts

call into consciousness the idiocy of village gate crashers in the vanguard’s shadow print

descent amidst stares into hanging bulb’s low watt blood-feud: thought-out-flanked in the right brain’s far left

dissent distended/de-centered…

 

 

thought removal: specialists in (d)our happiness – ordered responses garnered among collectivists

re-group behind al(l)tru(e)(fatal)istic bann(er)ed ideologies

in a crowd of oneness, splintered fractals enlist core sympathy: a nihilist’s penned chant for more…

rainbow shards bisect wind whispered pleadings under-ground-swell; feel-good death kisses(both cheeks)

consonant disavowal predic(a)ted…

 

 

a prove-all manic-festal, outlined in redress, calm-amity: head feathered vestal intent

on-going, out-reaching, cryptic call mass: leave-all benighted behind; close doors…

hydro-pon(t)i(a)c grassroots: tie sticks to bumper, crop bystanders from periphery

re-voice un-biblical chords, free-fly to core layer: mystery witness swiftly wilting in the keep

small bore rifling spins circles ’round the sum…

 

erst art:

protest ethic’s anthem

vent sure fisted posit-(ive)-ions

10 decrees - south draft…

 

arts-ter:

scale mountainous modalities

per(manent)mutations of  revisionist hysteria

refuse to be refuse…

 

rest starter rat:

burning passion (is) at stake

death’s mind grips fear

protest ant ethic(s)…

 

rest art, then restart…

 

 

on vacation

 

 

(m)aligned left possessing élan – no lingo nary a mumble

inference boldly bannered – killin’ deride would be faster…

to hide is a sensual experience in essence

the list of triggers fills a memory in subscript

a frayed, two pull chain - lettered in sequins - squeezes out the life…

 

eyes focused behind objectified yearning, imaged as elixir rendered from fallout

nodding yes & no in gavotte meter, dancing around the matter’s truth…

love you expressed with true insincerity, de-scripted

a round back: a strait-laced, spineless minstrel waves a crooked pointer at distal lotharios

cloaked in shuddered curtailment, availed of consequent antecedents…

 

deserted steppes flat-lined, delectation deferred on 1st draft: quicksand witch hunt

sail imminent soundscape, stakeout of the heartfelt: preternaturally deposed of winsome

 a predilection for primal screech, otherwise landing halfway twixt meds & madness

with moon sized gaps separating touch from feel, the surrounding space does little to alleviate the suffocation

another day is ledgered, with little in the black…

 

a steady surf lovingly wears character into rocks throughout an endless marriage

minerals culled from coastal outlines enrich ancient progenitors, as offspring feed on their lineage

multiple, spinning scenarios generate electromagnetic, psychic warnings to future cognation

hiding under a blanket is much the same as running away from home should one not be uncovered, or missed

aramaic tattoos decorate gym-rat’s nesting rituals in metered verse…

 

                                                 

elevated

levels of

hindsight

reinforced by

fringe factions

ideologically

hinged on

borderline dissociation

escalate in measured catenation

along fault lined misassumption,

like clockwork…

 

peripheral items lend an otherwise absent context, to a life simply lived

on reflection, images of chronology take on an order not so much in sequence, but in impact

repositioning someone into another time & situation, otherwise played out to the letter, may be potion or poison

passions, like volatile gases, engulf shared affection among natural enemies

catalytic interplay -  a chord not reached submerged in dissonance, lined in undertones, bathed in silenced lyres…

blue isthmus bridges barrier to Remus’ bro(a)der interpretation

a brief sojourn to truth; soothe – say her disciples in defense; counter-active to militant linearity

deflect direct sense assault, light show(s) amoeba like movement incomingàin country…

check the rear(inner)view mirror for a tail;

look up at helicoptic servile conveyance

152 days passed, marks life-launch: autumnal mission

4 souls re-enter atom’s sphere

Monk’s dance encircles abandoned pianoforte

 

 

rescued from darkness, only to be subsequetly blindfolded atop a sniper’s perch w/o aim(s)

all-truth-istic - deep-ending on your con(tra)cepts; (have been) this way since birth…

of a nay(sayer) shuns enlightenment – his reflection to a vampire – faux word’s grass toots: movement

with so many opt- i- on pos-tulate-culp-abilities, reaching for brass ring’s fire sturm/drang/tine…

calm betrays a prophet’s storm – predilection for fortune shrieking; light up your windows & weepß

 

sated day quell’s nightmarish ramblings - redolent of incomplete thought; & so, repent: liar’s remorse

chaired, stalled in mire - doubly clutching to a non-shifting stance(resist), in midst of populisim’s foment…

do we collaborate with (the) enmity of repetition, doomed by history? hour 10: little to report

our 11th house is not in order; neither is it f(o)unded by blithe hearte(ne)d intent…

rather a scattering of plasm astride cloud-enveloped sorrel: around the clubhouse turnàto stone

 

 

 

atonal love ballade #1

 

sideswiped head-on – gridlock friday; quixotic in its shortcut/re-run

stepped on 6 times, disillusion cloverleaf(ed) - raking it in slowly…

the deep green, crew cut lawn belies the fissured mainline - percolating upward…

hoarding e(r)(x)otic emotional dramas:

 

she climbs the narrow staircase, dragging her feet to forestall seeing vacant eyes-

reflected in the mirrored door

 

ascent, odious to those fore/aft, hind-sighted around perfect corners

rejected as second to none; wherefore worse astrology prevails for past-life romantics

aggressive globule strategy cites (per)empt(or)y-nest syndrome: mothers as drug mules of choice 

celebrating the platitudinous as they are levitated to the throne – a kindness/comfort to those more worthy?

(d)earth(‘s) (en)core-elated (exi)(syn)(a)tonic, liquid centrifusion = hot top carpeted terrain

 

reaching behind  for a water glass, fumbling along the sideboard upon which it rests –

 Emotional Collapse smiles at the prospect of hydration, determined to enter the nether zone with defiance…

 

imagination untethered, might allow one to ponder the many souls that pass them by each day

turning one’s head is not the same as head turning – the former is away from – the latter toward…

sun-sit on the marble steps until the dollar in your pocket resides in the coffers, entitling you to a clip on button & the choice of Balthus; Miró – both/and>

sub-a-tonic balm offered up in formless waves, soundscaped by streetboppers may-be:

 the zenith uncompr(omised)(hended)/unfettered

 

a genius from Bedford-Stuyvesant – offered the medius, not a warm hand…

overlo(a)(r)d of beauty, m(a)(i)ssive for one life/world – antigen(ius) under stocked to sustain him in this way

art(‘s) heart(h) you are: art_hur(led) – caught by few – rh(a)(y)mes with flames-to go up in…

bandshell banshee free(s) music; bop vivant avant garnered love in life’s death.

 

cognition reel – 45 second samples of  a_war(e)(i)ness sprung  forth – in line with denial

lunar tricks, fringe to radius: the loneliest sphere m’funk  de-re-con-struct(ur)ed

a sound like warm ice shards; crystal buccaneers tramp lightly along the cycle - track 1 is a blues

stack of 45(s) caliper revolving clockwise, c(h)ambers a_round – track 2 is a barnburner

 

what are their true aims?

 

storm cell(ared), mind-lightening, brain sheared, collective winsome: another day in para-psych-dise

pronouncements in absolutes compress soul affirmation, & allow the speaker to believe in real legion(s)

torsion left – exit sky words: quintessence overcome by the wind’s ultimatum

bemuse cyclical spin dance: surround the ball-and-chain-room ritually if not gracefully…

safe for now, the agitated mind’s eye remains shuttered –core text obliquely masking in(plain)sight

 

a few degrees left à right sun-burnished ß burnt…
