Colloquial Suffering

A burden onto a burden 
Backs bundled in fatigue
Entrapped by the cell indifferent to tragedy 
Soaked in forged personality
Barely equipped to decipher the genuine 

Projections of snobbery
Drama staged 
Shy of rehearsal
Inside the circle of artificial control 
Echoes of protest
Suffocate those of sincere charisma 

A fluorescent hallway
Full of weary nurses
Aged in distress
Receive the sinners of society
With arms wide open
Mouths wider yet
At the gushes of wounds
Of blood redder than cherries

An anxious decision brawls at itself
Opinions offered by outsiders 
Opens the mind to oppression
Insecurity and second thinking

Bristles of a burnt out brush
Curled in maturity
Not of age
A host of grey hairs
Fall off the edge of the tool of foreseeable praise 
Laid onto vulnerable victims
Those of which
Lacking influence
And a say

Portraits of frightened expression
Painting off laughing faces 
Eyes prey on her frown
A knife rids her of her own skin

Absorbed amidst chaotic self-doubt
Regret 
The only syllables sliding off the tongue
Where have they come from 
They who are making a scene 
A mother and her son 

His finger rubs the palm of her hand
Sweat slides along a slippery slope 
The reign of terror 
In search for the prophecy of fortune 
Or disaster waiting
Somewhere down the line

My Friend's on Fire

The sturdy structure
Of the wooden container
Carries inside of it
A lifelong complainer
Who today will rest
As we set him on fire

The vessel of death
Glows in the flare
Screams of suffocation
Underneath all the wood
Lies a strangely brave friend

Who used to lie in his bunk
Of the world he would weep
To slaughter the sorrow
From his heart that it creeps
                                                                 
Who today a lone passenger 
Boards the journey he seeks 
Before the heat and the sea
Brawl at each other
In fire, the flame
Signifies he is free 

I bet if he was standing here
To see what I see
He would say that he’s glad
To see himself dead
But I thinkn’t the same
It should be us instead

GORE’S NECTAR

BENEATH THE SEA IS THE MIMICKING OF A CLOUD’S CHURNING ABDOMEN
FOR DETRIMENT 
AND NONE OTHER MORE 
ABOVE AND BELOW RUNS PARALLEL 
ANGELIC AGGRESSION 
IS BELONGING
IN THE WISDOM OF THE DEEPEST
A SWAN FISHES FOR AIR
IT WISHES IT WERE 
DECEASED
IN ITS PLACE
A KING’S LAND 
URGES AN AUDIENCE
TO WITHDRAW 
A CRIPPLING CRANE EXPOSED OF 
DECADENT ALL 
BENT A NECK 
RENDERED LOUSY THUS
IF NOT USELESS 
A EUPHEMISM IS CHARITY
DECIDED BY THE PERFIDIOUS 

OBJECTION IF UNEXPECTED 
SLAUGHTERS A MIGRAINE WITH EASE
THE JUICE CONTAINED
ON STRINGS OF A HARP 
PASSIONATELY DELUSIONAL 
AN ANGEL CARESSES WHAT IT SHOULD NOT
IRREGARDLESS
VIOLENCE IS FORTIFIED 
LIKE A RIVER
RELIGIOUSLY COMPETENT 
RED AS IF CHERRIES BLOSSOM
HEEDLESS OF TIME
NOR EXPIRATION 
INFINITELY OBLIVIOUS
LIKE IN FAIRY TALES
OFFERED ONLY TO CHILDREN
WITH CURIOUS PALMS 
CLAPPING MOSQUITOES  

NEED NOT YOU CRITIQUE THE DECEASED’S VIBRANT OUTCRY
BLUE CONTAINS ALL BRUISES 
OF THE WORLD
WEATHERED FEATHERS
A RENDITION OF THE RAINBOW
FLAPPED WITH RAGING PASSION PREVIOUSLY
IN PARADISE
OBNOXIOUS PITY
SHOULD BE PITIED
A LONER LOOMS PRAYING
BEFORE THE FORESEEABLE BEATING OVERTAKES
UPON NO WHERE ELSE 
NOT EVEN RAIN-DRENCHED GRASS
POVERTY IS NO JOKE
IT IS A PHENOMENON

DEADLY RESERVED
LAUGHTER COULD PRESENT 
CRUELTY IN JUST ITS GLORY
THE ILLUSTRATION OF YOUTH 
DIFFERS
PERHAPS TOO MUCH 
FROM YOUTH DESPISED 
HATRED IS SPRUNG
AS DELIBERATELY ALWAYS
INSULT IS BEST ENCOMPASSED BY THE POISON SPAT IN WHICH IT WAS CONCEIVED 
ALL BASTARDS ARE BORN ADORABLE 
BEFORE BURST BY THE SUN
BARELY BEARABLE 
BLISTERS FORMED IN THE CLOUDS
ARE BULLETS EAGER TO BURDEN
A POET IS THE MOST POWERFUL WHEN IT CEASES ALL VENGEANCE

HEREBY THIS AN ODE TO O AND F

THE SKY IS AN INSTRUMENT
THE CLOUDS PLUMP PILLOWS ALL PLUSH
BILLOWING IN STORMS SELF-INFLICTED
AT HEAVEN 
AT HEAVEN
AT HEAVEN!
A TEAR 
WEIGHS A TONNE 
THAT TONNE 
THAT FALLS
AS IF THE NIAGARA ITSELF
THAT TEAR 
IS HOME
DISPERSED
STILL WILL SLIP 
STUMBLING 
STEADILY CAUTIOUS

TO THE MARINE TENTACLES 
FIVE THOUSAND OCEANS’ LENGTH
REST IT CAN’T 
LONGING FOR THE EARTH 
INSIDE COLOURED THE METICULOUS HUE
DARKER TILL DOOM
DAWNS
THE PILLAR UPHOLDS
PHILOSOPHICAL BANTER 
BLOW SOMEWHAT SERIOUS STEAM 
INSIDE THAT TONNE
SELF-DEPRIVED 
BARELY
ANYTHING RIPE
THAT LACKS
IS NATURE’S ASSERTION 

WHOLLY COLOURLESS
HOLY POWERS
HAILS A HOLE TOO MUCH
BREWING INDOORS 
THE RAIN 
RELEASES
A PEARL FETUS IS CRACKLING
CRANKY
IRIDESCENTLY DANGEROUS
A DROP IS NOT
IN ITS DESCENT
HARMONY TORTURES HARMONIOUSLY
A VINEGAR SAMPLE IS SUFFICIENT
MUST EVERY TURTLE SWIMS 

ONE LIGER CHASES ITS WICKED HIND
HINDERS RIVERS 
FLOWS FOREVER FLUENTLY IN SPITE
THE SHORE THAT BENDS
PERFECTLY SPRAINED 
HYPOCRISY IS THAT VICIOUS HOUND
PRACTICAL PRIOR 
SHOULD NEVER FORESEE THE FORTUNE INFLICTED UPON
DYED SANDS
IN SPRINTS
ACCRUE SEASHELLS
FROM RESTLESS PASSENGERS
SPAWNED MIGRATION 
A POPULATION INEVITABLY BLOOMS

IN NOBODY’S NECK
RICOCHET 
HARD-CORE
THE HIDEOUS JARGON
PREJUDICE WITHOUT HAVING TO UTTER
FLAGS IN PROTEST WEEP VINDICTIVELY 
SLURS
BESAME MUCHO
SO MUCH EXCITED
THE INSPIRATION 
SOAK THE OCEAN 
WITH THE FOLLOWING
FRUITFUL RHETORIC 
FOAMING WHERE 
NARCISSISTIC ALLUSIONS 
FORGE SOLUTIONS
UPON THE ASSEMBLY AMBASSADORS
CALL ALL
HANDSOME ONLY 
SURMOUNTS THE SATISFACTORY SACRIFICE 

AS SUCH THEIR SOLILOQUY 
TRICKLES THUS
DOWN ALL THEM
DODGED 
ALL FREE 
AND TIL NOT
DROWNED BY A TEAR
ESPECIALLY BLUE
SHOULD IT BE SPILT
BY WHAT 
OR WHOM
THE SHEDDING
SACRED IT INDISPUTABLY IS
DOWN ALL THEY WHEN SEEN ALL THROUGH
