First Line, Last Line (Part Deux)Page 43 of 266    (29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69)
Into the expanse of despair
we all sometimes need to stare
some more often than others
we all sometimes grope
at the end of our rope
overwhelming grief smothers
in the mud pit tug of war
release of sadness feels so far
we'd end it if we had our druthers
but alive we rise up
another sip from the cup
we find we're surrounded by brothers

we find we're surrounded by brothers
falsehoods told be others
won't stop the fighting in Irac
brace now for another attack
when the terrsit strike at will,
blow us all to kindom come still...
whose fault will it be,
what shoulder do we lay the grief

what shoulder do we lay the grief
a case of hypocritical belief
that despite international conventions
crafted from the horror of the second world war
prohibiting pre-emptive war...wars of aggression
against those who never so much as threatened
let alone attacked us
are right, proper, just and good
"noble and necessary"
only took fifty years to turn repugnance
into fully normalized policy

(muah... for the one you sent me, you know who you are)

into fully normalized policy
I have tried to remain
But my sweet little heart
from trouble cant refrain
I try too hard sometimes
good friend and even foe
cant change my mind
when passion is in tow
I live for the smell
desire only sex
its like hot hunky man
has cast me with a hex
throw me down for pleasure
lift me up for more
I promise you one thing
it will never be a bore
lets grab each other now
before we slip away
and night falls to morn
and we call it a day...

and we call it a day...
after your will has almost been broken
and my soul took a walk away from some friggen future
when you came home
I was there.
did we connect?
With a language beyond physical.
Each orgasm you offered
Understood that you, I
are more than an act, short in duration
compared to the long run.
We can do the long run
without touching.
In the meantime, hold me.
With the ghost of history.
Then fly away, I will follow.

Then fly away, I will follow
Follow until the ends of the earth
Until I find that place of re-birth
Stomaching the things in life hard to swallow
I know that you are there
Omnipresent
Keeping a watchful eye
As the days pass by
Seconds, moments - a blink in the eye of time
A molicule & fragment of existence
A tiny grain of sand in the eggtimer denotes this rhyme

A tiny grain of sand in the eggtimer denotes this rhyme
but how do we measure it's passage through time?
do we savory the loss with a memory or two?
do we live for the moment and never pursue?
do we wait for the time before it has passed?
or forget altogether and never regress,
the fleeting of time in an hour shaped glass

the fleeting of time in an hour shaped glass
how quickly each moment slips and passes
watching the leaves flutter in the trees
a golden moment enjoyed by me

a golden moment enjoyed by me
when my sweet old mom said she could see
and my daughter smiled as never before
for blindness had long ago closed the door

beaming with youth she said Gram am I pretty
mom responded despondent but still very witty
as pretty as a kitty with gold and white fur
even though we all know all she sees is a blur

even though we all know all she sees is a blur,
Its much better than total darkness for her:
Any light coming through to distinguish her days,
Lifts her spirits which helps her in so many ways,

My moms fear was of days when she might go blind,
Darkness came upon her just before her time:
Can’t think of it now or it makes me cry,
Matters not all the years that have since gone by!

matters not all the years that have since gone by
but many are unforgettable no matter how hard we try
birth death love war
feast famine rich poor
years map our global boundaries
topography outlined by our genes and heredities
looking back how far can you see
looking forward would take an eternity

looking forward would take an eternity
looking backward just cannot be
we are better off being
in the day
but what the f-ck
there is no day
we can at best
just wait for
tomorrow

cherish it well

and it will
be gone

Be gone
Retreat into the shadows
Skulk in the darkness where you belong
Filled with an impurity & hate-fuelled song
For as Bob sang "the times they are a-changing"
And in the grand scheme of things they will be re-arranging
That sordid negative tune which you pour out of a smoke-filled mouth
And that false clown's smile will be heading in only 1 direction - south...

but it isn't false..
my lips are naturally upturned at the corners..
which has caused me a problem all my life
as I permanently look like Im smiling
even in the sternest of situations
which is why you shouldnt assume anything
on first impressions

on first impression
the mind fills with
familiar, acceptable, comfortable
reinforcing images
only when time offers
opportunity for close scrutiny
can we see what was
evident all along

evident all along
two birds afraid to sing the song
we must hold on to our pride
this thing eating us inside
Whatever else could we do?

crazy poets coming unglued
rhymes flung like plates through the air
haiku whiz by short but not sweet
cinquains get tossed on a dare
words cut deep leaving inky scars
keyboards disabled for good
monitors hit the floor with a crash
there goes the neighborhood

There goes the neighborhood
The good old US of A
Such a massive glittery culture
It'll blow ya away!
Goodfellows & 'torture porn' horror & 'You've Got Mail!'
A bite of the Big Apple & all manner of things prevail
English groups singing like Americans
Just caaaan't get enough
Lets take the best of the star-spangled banner
But we'll have to take it along with the rough
The biatches and the hoes
It'll curl some folk's sweet toes
But there's also the land of plenty
Neon dreams - is it what it seems?

Neon dreams - is it what it seems?
like in your nation's capital, Las Vegas?
where the Sphinx and the Pyramids are
where more water is wasted on wishing wells
in a tourist desert oasis
than on the production of food
downstream in arizona
where the prices have gone through the roof
because all of the cheap labor
ran away north out of fear
from the gestapo asking for their papers
in a home depot parking lot
looking for day labor
3000 miles southwest
from the bronze lady from France
declaring to give us
your hungry, your tired your poor
where 1 in every 500 homeowners
have recieved foreclosure notices
and abandon their homes
to be given to the government
to fix and re-sell. to who?
thats a lot of homes
sounds to me like
trading seats on the titanic
while billions have been spent
to save the bankers
and to come up with the cash
to save the bankers
residents of public housing
are being forced to go to work
which sounds like a good idea
until you realize there are no jobs
and food stamps are getting cut
and perhaps the most humbling
if not karmically overdue
fact of all is that
the worst off of us
are still better off
than the vast majority of humans on the planet
sad to say dreams arent what they seem
assuming your dream follows the provided template
guess thats what happens when we get lazy and spoiled
and stop caring about the bigger picture
like gandhi said when asked what he thought about western civilization
" I think it would be a good idea"

i think it would be a good idea
if we had our last meal
and give thanks to the veteran
fighting for a country better ran
with all the people in mind
a better country we'd be able to find
but good luck with that
lets just tip out hats
have a good recollection
of what started the negligence
something about power and greed
to bad we can't feed all the folks in need
giving up a home to live under a bridge
all because we're tired of living
still treated like a jerk for as hard as we work
it no wonder people go bizserk
If the government could invent jobs
america wouln't have the slobs
paid well to sit on ass and collect
well just enough to get by I suspect

is all that I can ever expect
to wake up happy roof above head
window wide at the foot of my bed
milk in the fridge oil in the tank
paying the bills not much in the bank
ears to listen eyes to see
earth is a beauty I'm reasonably free

I'm reasonably free
and decently fed
educated and reasonably led
and I can clearly see
born in the land of milk and honey
I'm lucky to be me

I have some good fun, I suppose
when I am no longer feeling exposed
to the outside forces that try to steal away my joy
kiss my boys to sleep
thank god there is food to eat
thank him daily for things given
and pray to god he lets me keep living
