Poppycock
Poppycock 2013; Marker on Paper.
h7.25 x w8 in. 

Days
Days never end. One day flows into the next with no end, no break, no nothing. Sometimes I feel like I’m in a vacuum of sorts. It pulls me from one second to the next, chewing and distorting the past.

Long Forgotten
I am too comfortable I fear,
For my indolence has found a bliss,
I have denied too long.
My mind circles over objects long forgotten:
Hermit crabs, boxers, magic potions.

And it all seems to spiral.

As if Jack has finally ripped his revenge,
I ran from him once again…

Pace quickening terror grabbing all it can,
Chasing the innocent to do its bidding.

Stupidity imparted to all those who cannot know,
Suspended in false desires.

Before
There was no before
No time before time
This was always here
It is the only thing that is mine

Epitaph
“Did you see me,
The bitterness from the sea?”
“All that remained
Was a shell of rusty rose.”

Names
Names, we write names.
Endlessly and in a circular pattern.
Perhaps one will shine through…
Out of the white, out of the dark….
Perhaps we will get bored and try to write something new.

Pumpkin Queen
I am the pumpkin queen,
As I did, I do once more,
I relish in being mean,
You will shake to the core.

But, I have lost my heart’s delight.
And I stare alone at his grave.
Yet you would never know upon sight,
That I have no one left to save.

Ending
On this winter eve,
All the people lie quiet,
And in the foggy night,
For I die to see light,
Blameless the bed, the pillow, the chair.

While his love pours into me,
And old age is not yet embraced;
His reluctant touch
Sticks and pins and yet trudges along.
Companions through all
Striving only to endure
Constantly tearing
And mending back together.

2012; Inspiration: While his Body's Vigor is Whole
by Bhartihari (c.650)

In my mind
I am dead.
Those that weep for me
Still may.

I speak no more
No me and you
I move my lips in vain
Plowed myself through the ground.

I embellished.
I denied.
It kept
My head above the flames.

I remain
Quiet.
I am spent,
Life without breath.

It’s all the same.

2009; Inspiration: In My View 
by Takaram (1598-1649)

And it Fades
And it fades…the memory, the guilt, the sorrow.

Straws, pieces of life.

No conclusion… pressing the finite.
