I've always believed that the random noise theory of ideation
was the way my rickety slinky of a mind sorted itself out
that the filters i grew to sift ,weigh and wrestle,
the ones adults impressed on me
plus the assortment the adults that impressed me
inspired me to build myself
was like attachments for a vacuum cleaner
falling out on the floor and eventually ending up
in the closet in a bag.. i just rolled along
ignoring damn near anything that didnt have long enough teeth
to bite through
then i began to explore natures pharmacopeia
hey it was the 60's and i sang for my supper
so i ate a little more than food
i began to notice that new ideas got a lot more traction
with a new filter , larger and less controlled
course watching my brother try to walk into a poster
told me limits still existed
while i might have let the potential of enforced incarceration
affect my choice of recreational activities
i never forgot how to step back and take another look
sometimes that lesson comes from loss or loneliness
from being too different to deal or be dealt with fairly
no matter how it arrives ..take that step back and look again
it wont suddenly turn ugly into beauty
but it can help you find the treasure you've been trashing
and see yourself outside the herd

courage to unleash the soul
to frame it all in a tie-dyed splatter
more than appreciation for the anchor,
the hand that will not let go
its freedom without fear

of falling short
of coming home

quiet is a shroud that lasts til it lasts forever
waiting for a well timed word
waiting..



that joy to us all..blessed be

i wonder how many visions had to appear
how many fearful eyes of wonder had to see
to describe the indescribable.. does that cover everything
what would i say to the inside of a starship
would TV give me the background to deal with the difference
what frame for a sheep herder watching the land and sky
for wolves to steal his lambs..or his life
before spear throwers and bows
poor hands we have to fight off natures finest
without something to even the score
did we build a better sword ..one that leaves the hand
or a better imagination
did the burning bush help make it right
make it our land to til our animals to rule
if the message fits ,do we wear it well or suffice to soak up any guilt
how have we placed it all in order
how many times..how many gods to rule
stronger wiser ,strongest and wisest
best of beings or a better brand of fool
Loki or Jesus , a trick of a cross
or a trick of the mind
its a blinding light
to a baby's eyes

and after it all
im still uncertain

I guess its good
that uncertainty is more an opportunity
than a prison
but isnt that where evil can flourish?
in a choice left to you

guess i need five times a day
to kneel and face
whatever direction I have found

roped and tied to whatever comfort/wisdom
lies in quiet
it isnt about what we see ,
our senses play a game with our mind
spinal sorted when action is required
slowing down isnt an enemy
unless we get caught up
in our own masquerade

i know who is behind every mask,
but one ..
the one i can't see

til its quiet

were you humming it as you typed?

I was the chunky kids with crooked glasses..in the library
my brother raced track, i was forbidden gym
he looked like Adonis..i looked like Uranus
ok thats a lie..

i looked like an invitation to an asswhipping... mine
so what, by the time i was nine i had won enough fights
with my cloth cushioned iron pipe.. to only get beat up
when i left it at home , theres a real memory aid you won't see on TV

I read Homer and wondered..how a blind guy knew what a fight was like
How could he tell between the greater or lessor Ajax?
How wily Odysseus won his one on ones
How fear loosened Men's knees and bowels

Achilles sounded tough and Hector a brave fool
would i piss off the guy that was foretold to be my end?
drag his friend around like a dog and then suffer the same
there was a lot of corpse abuse in that conflict

hiding men in a wooden horse
that sounds like a blind man's vision
that one... i believe
the rest? even a 9 year old wonders

seems no one carries a blade, it makes cops look at you funny
yet to this day..my Dad carries a knife
I grew up with uncles comparing ankle guns
looks like the changing carry laws might
bring that back a bit
what edges do you carry
to make you feel ok...

wit might be enough
thought it was til i had to
escort a crack head out of my house
time to rethink, rearm
busted hands heal more slowly
but offer weeks of reminders
listen to the pain

or stop listening at all

moonie............................loved that soul spewing you just did.....................it hit a spot with me..................

i live in a constant state of unstability
since i was a young man my reality
but in here i find spirits yet unbroken
as if somehow they've been awoken
to release thier thoughts held deep inside
to paint with words you just can't hide
and sometimes when i play along
are painting produce's such a beautiful song
one of love and concern,with a dash of intimate suggestions
when i look back on these times,the best of my reflections
with my thoughts now expressed,not much more here to do
cept to say that none of these portraits would be complete without you

Shoulda named those 2 cats, Logic and Emotion
the way they fight for so little reason
just one selfish move , a thoughtless strike
and so we go

reasonably defend an emotional choice
or emotionally defend your logic
feeling the right of whatever you can grab and swing
like an anvil at a hammer

if it hits square, it still makes no sense
anyone watching looks appalled
at the wasted energy and fire for nothing
unless they get too close

enough to let the crazy get contagious
and the anvils fly

~~~~ perhaps inspired by lunars above "spew".......thoughts and criticism welcomed, btw!!~~~~~~

traversing an uncertain bridge
over deepening waters,
tides ebb and flow
as the grasp of feeling
captured in a timeless bottle
stirs question of destiny's call.
eloquent voice of the past
searing hearts tender auricle.
yet tears reflections are stirred
by pools of new wonderment.
Passions cautiously piqued
as importuous trust
ponders safe haven.
Steps laid in the dawn of time
considered with inquisitive view,
balancing the precipice of
the horizons before and beyond.
and so, with profound longings,
she gazes.

~~~~~ five years is a long time lunar...... I still believe there's always something different at the end of those proverbial strings..... but I am forever a romantic idealist!!!

another delusion,
the love of illusion,
accepted intrusion
on realities fusion.
truth now waking
ending masks faking.
love forsaking
no longer partaking.
hearts slow healing
of jilted feeling,
painful peeling
fragmented thoughts reeling
searing the past
and what was thought to last.
new dye is cast
while a string is held fast.

succint poignancy

wish i had the attention span
(not to mention the time)
to elaborate on the pure thought
i scribe on the fly

lunar,
i admire
respect
almost envy your
craftsmanship
artistry
every stroke
considered
deliberate
the page is truly
your canvass

From rainbow to rainbow,
there's a yellow brick road,
lined with frogs
and the occasional toad,
we won't call him the horny,
now that's just a bit crass,
if ya don't like my frogs,
then please kiss my a*s
so back to my story
of rainbow's delight,
the frog and the toad
went at it all night.

I know!....I'm crazy!

bon appetite!

a toad in a hole
a nourishing broth
and a milk-soaked macaroon

watch the blushing bard drool!

hola all
lunar, what can i say...

fait accompli

ah, to coax capillaries
into rosy cheeks

alas, my paddle only reaches so far

slick, wet life stews
ripening into pungent muck
stirred by burrowing annelids
fertile wombs of the earth

but consoled by the moist darkness
the moss garden thrives, grown green and dense.
wild mushrooms awaken and rise,
tiny pulpits for a cicadian aria...
a pale, blue moonflower prepares to unfold
unseen, while all creatures stir to know their song.

power ponders force of will
control the choice
no matter what is chosen
winning is a matter of what you get now
and whats left to seek next time
finding ways to frame freedom's illusion
red pill or black ,planting placebos
for a crop of contentment

what hands move the mountain
the comfort in knowing lies
proportional to your distance
in time, name or money
from the bottom of the pyramid
where all the slaves now lie
framing a last thought
ending in silence

you think its about you
all of this
despair isnt symptomatic
of the disease of life
nor is death more than a door
the drama of your destiny
has everything in common
with the fish left flopping on the shore

as you sacrifice on every altar,
praying that its more

dust settles into thin threads of darkness
in corners ,against the woodwork
subtle blight on white , message to your nose
reason to run.. as time brings redefinition
satisfaction to the hungry for more,
after all that was sold how could there be more
surface skating keeps the loss light or
the tally small since what little was left
resembled everything but integrity
is that the new terror to avoid
sure makes it easier to not miss
watching it all end up in the corner
waiting for a broom
