"Subversion," "Kaleidoscope Dharma," and "Yin Yang #45"


Guilty hands hold
non-poetic pens.
The mind narrows
to the cover story:
smoke screen interference
freezing truth
coded by fear
sending trains of thought
to nowhere.



Kaleidoscope Dharma

It’s the festive cold in a waning year
with mass produced magic
and mutual paws
on the edge of smiles.

There’s a sense of moments
scents and antique laughter
when staying warm was a stove
and discipline.
Even balls had edges then.
Intensity was an S & M word bang
on twisted innocence.
Fear was a rocket stealing sleep.

There was no balance to hang from
as I wobbled from a dream bed
saw a splinter that cracked the sky
where the wind and I could breathe through.



Yin Yang #45

Night is an abyss
at the edge of a footstep,
raining anvils
in a mercury-retrograde
needing chemicals.

Fog is a curtain
of anticipation.
When lifted
our way is lit by stars
on a high dose
of infinity.
