rebirth




blankets of ghost voices
riding into the mist
exultant becoming
the wind is in
my face and
my horse's mane is
shaking like
old bones in a candlelit dawn
of becoming
closer

unfathomable bells ringing
silent intonations
resound
hoofbeats on the heavy air
sodden

the end of sadness
curses lifted
the land
sighs

Razor Boy


Libations and
Tendencies to love
Selflessly flow and
Immerse me in the
Likeness of spring showers.

Meddling tyrants
Dance like secret igloos in the
Arctic dawn but can't
Interpolate the
Fragrance of your
Franjipani.

Yoni
Conqueress
Intelligence
Related to an
Infinitessimal
Yam.

Monkeys shower me with excrement in
A winnowing dawn.

I am sam
I am.

so I'm eating this Bosch pear
and i think you are thinking about the quality of your life as i am thinking of the quality of this pear; can this sensuality equate to wisdom?

agave and lime, or the quest for america...


antebellum nostalgia
ripening in hillocks of
cannons and muskets
rusting in someone's
sacred ground
is it yours
I'll make it mine in
definite rainbows of destruction and a
limited following

birth me in your
sacred rain

bleed me like Antietam
while I watch TV

is it me or does
Homer Simpson
sail on wine-dark seas?

do you have an America?

give it to me.


(I love the promise of who you must be...)

and you know who you are...

Punchin' the Clock...


Alaska has bruised me with
All of the north
And I find comfort in not
Being there like I
Imagine the comfort of
Death

To go north is not a
Requirement by any means
But it helps

The charity of wednesdays morality
Challenged in intent and
Timing
All the while unwinding
In sense and
Color
Becomes quickly
Lost
Amidst the
Tundra

Can people used to
Workdays
Facilitate
Spent
Time?

In the eyes of a
Bear there is no respite
But nations of hopefulness
In a perfect remembrance
A complete semblance
Of you and
Me

thoughts leading up to an orgasm



there are flecks in your eyes like
intrusions in quartz crystal
infusions of trapped
life
waiting to
melt

there are scars deep inside
me that your love can't
touch

there was a small bird this morning
who tilted his little head and looked at me

there are places within me like chambers in a cave
vaulted ceilings in a towering cathedral
the abyss of the sea
bottomless

there was a time when I loved you more than I
could love myself

there is a place somewhere
free
of daunting possibilities where
we can
smile

In India there are thousands of Jain Monks, in categories like Acharya, Upadhyaya and Muni. Trainee ascetics are known as Ailaka and Ksullaka in the Digambar tradition.

There are two categories of ascetics, Sadhu (monk) and Sadhvi (nun). They practice the five Mahavratas, three Guptis and five Samitis:

Five Mahavratas

* Ahimsa: Non-violence in thought, word and deed
* Satya: Truth which is (hita) beneficial, (mita) succinct and (priya) pleasing
* Acaurya: Not accepting anything that has not been given to them by the owner
* Brahmacarya: Absolute purity of mind and body
* Aparigraha: Non-attachment to non-self objects

Three Guptis

* Managupti: Control of the mind
* Vacanagupti: Control of speech
* Kayagupti: Control of body

Five Samitis

* Irya Samiti: Carefulness while walking
* Bhasha Samiti: Carefulness while communicating
* Eshana Samiti: Carefulness while eating
* Adana Nikshepana Samiti: Carefulness while handling their fly-whisks, water gourds, etc.
* Pratishthapana Samiti: Carefulness while disposing of bodily waste matter

Male Digambara monks do not wear any clothes and are nude. They practice non-attachment to the body and hence, wear no clothes. Shvetambara monks and nuns wear white clothes. Shvetambaras believe that monks and nuns may wear simple un-stitched white clothes as long as they are not attached to them. Jain monks and nuns travel on foot. They do not use mechanical transport.

Digambar followers take up to eleven Pratimaye (oath). Monks take all eleven oaths. They eat only once a day. The Male Digambar monk (Maharajji) eat standing at one place in their palms without using any utensil.

An Evening at the Club



papayas and limericks
on the shelf
cocktails
reaching into hands
the hands of primitive hairy
monkey creatures
but
such wonderful things
our hands
telling wrinkly stories of
living
with alcohol in the
bloodstream
mi corazon
mi manos
and eyes god the eyes
how they reach
and pull
me
to
you

Slowly Returning (The Wanderings of Fortunado, Part II)


I am ted turner and
Don Quixote the wise
intoxicating limericks for
lullaby eyes

I venture to know the sense of
Your mouth in the joyous days
Of Summer in the South

Fortunado is calling for venturesome
Capital as the pope calls for
World peace in a church in
Seattle

In a foolish vagabond excursion
I derailed a train in houston

why do I love your hands?

everywhere i go is an opportunity
for that chance meeting
with you

The Samsara Surfer


I didn't sign up for this
The last I remember I was asleep in the
Forest under graceful trees
When some son of a b i t c h
Seized me bodily and to my utter dismay
Threw me on a dirty boat

lifetimes then drifted and stars lived and died in the skies of my eyes
forty days and forty nights of ancestral bequests consumed the moon
which was my radiant face exposed for the first time, maybe understanding
maybe understood but nonetheless unable to repent or rejoice just to
accept the waves and the salt, the cries of bird and wind, the eternity of
the voyage linger in my every breath from before the fall to after Columbus
dismay and dissolution dance to eerie music in my private america, my body
moves to generational gyrations brought on by elvis while my soul left on the
midnight train some time ago and left behind all the luggage, whale bones and
dry starfish so out of place on the platform, at the train station.

I Wanna Eat You



there was an asiago exhalation
in her expression and I
offered a MacIntosh apple
sipping merlot as was our wont
it just seemed right

there was a natural progression
toward wellness that
I crunched right into like a
golden delicious when she
skewered me with acupuncture
and I panted,
Yes

and then the gorgonzola hit me with
dried cranberries and walnuts and I
cringed with glee, my chin dripping
balsamic redemption in hebraic interludes of
compassion and guilt

all the olives of Sicily could not
make her tapenade

Thank you Dime! Life has intruded on my creative space yet again - but I hope to stage a counter attack and drive the b a s t a r d (life) back just a little, providing at least a tentative rope bridge to that inner shangri-la that I miss terribly...

And contribute anything here whenever you want - I don't care if it sucks! lol

Thanks again for the kind words.

A Chinaman's Chance


the verdigris of a ripe solution,
the snail's pace of my absolution,
the morning that I fight off every day
responds to forces that unrelent and mold
themselves to my discontent like alabaster rain
or something like that

the salamander that lives only in china is
large and rare

I will love you like old bridges and
Newly fallen snow,
I will find that certain comfort and
Drop my roots and grow.

Nothing ventured nothing gained
So I'll make that iron ring,
Always building some old bridges
Always waiting for the Spring.

I Will Love You



I will love you like old bridges and
Newly fallen snow,
I will find that certain comfort and
Drop my roots and grow.

Nothing ventured nothing gained
So I'll make that iron ring,
Always building some old bridges
Always waiting for the Spring.

I will love you like tomorrows
Lying naked on the sand
While silky white seagulls are
Eating from my hand,
And moments stolen from the clouds
Lit up like golden fire that
Burns away the greyness and
Rekindles my desire.

I will love you as I have for endless lifetimes past
And the future beckons endlessly
When I'm in your arms at last.


OB

Blue Moon




Sailing through time and light
To meet the moon and run panting
Briar-torn and alive with youth
When the world was as young
Tuatha De Danaan
Mighty moonchildren
We are
Celtic and
Walk the earth
Hunters
From the waters of the
Danube
High among mountains born
Iron is our resolve and our
Wisdom, and time our friend;
When the moon is right
We'll breathe the night
And all the fertile gardens tend.

Holy Spirit


I have faith in my intuition,
To preserve my fragile human condition
I breathe myself to calmness and
Open myself to the voice that comes
Booming from the darkness yet
Quiet as a mother's whisper -
It leads me to the path of light and I cry
"Holy Spirit deep within my mind is dark and
Vexed with sin" and "Take me now and light the path"
And soon I smile and then
I laugh!

OB

verily I came across the miles
to embrace the quiet multitude
with smiles;
the love of kindred fires,
the seven-fold flavor of desire,
the last stop on the lonely road,
Bangladesh or toad,
Warts or gold?

Amplitude




Is there love in the dark?
Would gold still have value if no one could see?

Even Bukowski amidst filthy blowjobs
Retained a stained lucidity.

But can there be beauty in Buchenwald?
Is there art in pictures of death?

No, art can't survive when we take our last breath
Or lay down for the sword while we still walk and breathe
Or forget what we are
To forget what we need.

I went down to Kentucky
For some corn whiskey and
A lovely lady of the hills.

We walked over hill and hollow
And that whiskey we did swallow
Til she and I more than had our fill.

Just a joe...


T.O. was wearing two diamonds last night
One on each of his multi-million dollar lobes.
He was making an appearance on "Pros vs. Joes" and
Man he was lookin' good.

He was all smiles as he hugged Donovan McNabb
But I could plainly see that look in McNabb's eye that
Said - I really don't like you.

But hey - it makes for great television!

The football stars were now set to face the
Retired NBA ballers for a little game of
Round ball.

And then Kenny Smith said, uh ya know we have a
No jewelry rule in the NBA , T.O. ...
To which Tyrell nonchalantly replied:
"Man, I'm just a joe..."
