YOUTH

       we snuck out at night
       crawling out windows
       across roofs
       dropping to the ground
       boots
       colliding with pavement
       in the dark hot
       summer night
       a car
       sat in waiting
       just around the corner

         we drove barren streets
       until the Sun
       showed its face
       peering out over
       Lake Michigan
       dazed
       scattered
       across the grass
       cringing
       retreating
       like vampires
       back to our
       suburban coffins  

       back home
       diving into dreams
       before
       the factory whistle blows
       the church bells ring
       rude alarm clocks
       tearing
       citizens
       out of their nests
       dumping them back
       into the raging rivers
       of so called civilization

A POEM

millions of poems remain hidden
in hearts n minds n mouthes
of men n women across the planet
never to be seen , sold , soiled
subjected to public scrutination
manipulations of editors , printers
nor crucified by critics barking
from their faulty towers
a poem
is an outpouring of the soul
unfettered by intellect
unblemished
by ulterior motives , ambitions
a poem
in its purest form
is a One on One
    with the Great Spirit  ##

2001...Here We Come!!! :)

egyptian mummies
with traces of
cocaine and nicotene
 

strange symbols
etched on
the surface of the earth

sculptural
architextural feets
of divine proportions

unchartered paths riddled
with speculation
blue orbs
hovering in the night skiez
 
the essence of the grape
unites the physical
and spiritual

nature is a shrewd alchemist

as an artist
she/he
has no peer

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  ##
