FANTASTIC DANCE

Their mirrors reflected wondrous images. Among them were holy men washing the feet of beggar men & the women who keep the fires burning dancing a fantastic dance, millions of them & more but numbers do not go up that high, especially where numbers don’t count at all.

TOPEKA ‘PREACHA

His glorious sermons preach schemes of division,
Exquisitely crafted to prevent any schism.
Triumphantly pitting his will against right,
He lusts after money & covets your wife.

PERFECT FROM THE START

I am the newborn universe born once more, over and over again.  I am an old woman speaking her wisdom to the universe. I am a young bird singing. I am its Mother weeping. I am the sun laughing all the way every single day & it’s hard to believe it’s been perfect from the start, yes, perfect from the start.

MORNING AGAIN

My body rises before the sun.  My eyes flutter just as filament in a clear light bulb does. Dark and alone with myself, I []

BECOMING A MAN 

I am there along side all of those who loved him for being a true human being. “Life is short but terribly eternal.” Some of us are mortal, some of us are gifted immortality. We do not choose one or the other.

GOD IS THE GENIUS IN YOU

GONG: Nothing should be literally taken without contemplation. You may extrapolate this “saying” to mean much more or even much less. In general though, I believe it is a metaphor for honoring all those who come before us. By doing so, and listening to what our elders have to say, with all their wisdom, is a great source of direction along the way to fulfilling our own true path. Do you understand me?

HARP OF THE GODS

If you’re mystic, stroke my hair & kiss my lips. Take me to your mother ship. Rifle me with your tough grip. Anchor me to your bright blue.

HEAVEN KNOWS

Hollywood Boulevard & Vine Street erupts with volcanic fireworks like fireflies; over & over, again & again,ooo, ahh, ooh. They bring the []

JOHANNA HINTING

I am standing naked, drenched.
My head turned toward the sky. Cold rain pouring into my eyes.
The cobra skinned clouds and the moon playing tricks on my mind.
After what seems like days of rain,
the clouds part and the moon is so clear.

DIAMOND EYES

This life is amazing. It really sucks though. Sometimes. It is like Rosemary’s baby. Her head is spinning in circles in a movie []

COMMAND THYSELF

THIS MAGIC MOMENT

The crescent moon rises sheepishly; the slightest breeze might dim it’s shimmer.  Whispering palms hum in unison a melody taught them by traveling winter []

BRIGHT EYES

… your worth as a living being was measured in full when you were born. Do nothing if that is your desire. That’s what I do. It may be your destiny. I hope it’s mine.

MORE THAN THIS

My body is your sacred chalice. Pour your hungry heart into my thirsty soul. Swim in the warm waters of my mind. More than this, there’s nothing. Wash your wounds in the []

RING of FIRE

 My cup brims over with exquisite insanity; a wondrous mathematical equation, All the earth’s treasures lay scattered before me. I jump high on a trampoline sky.

COME PLAY MY GUITAR

I tossed and turned throughout the night. I felt something amiss, not quite right. Thunder rolled across black skies, lightning struck shut both []

PRAYING MANTIS WIDOWED BLACK

Upon the littered streets of Chelsea, Sheridan Square, Christopher Street, the pier, the trucks & my old neighborhood over off Bank street by H. B. Studios lay debris & detriment & minced miniature genitalia of yesterday’s used up action figures greeting good morning through hazed, petrol glassed, excremental eyes.

SILENCIOSO É NOSSO MAR

As pérolas caem daqueles olhos prismáticos brilhantes e eternamente espirais do céu do nosso criador. Eu os pego … preto, azul, branco, leve … e eu os arremesso em seu universo com todas as minhas forças.

I sit on the hill in the midst of a wildflower field and the small flowers moving in the gentle breeze. I sit at bay from a good friend grave. I came to tell him that, I was alright. His death broke me down. I…
