Day Hike


terrain unknown

and powerful steep,

I journey. . .

forgotten language
 
 
of maps

torn in two

and crumpled into crannies

–a new kind of nonsense

too

hooded I–

shiver under sweat

find pocks

mid-step

by touch,

gaze fixed to

sparkling mirage

above

–neither God, nor Son, but mine–

reflecting from shattered

spectacles.

Caged Fight


size of a fist,

heart beats your chest–

battering ribs

pummeling blood

and

pounding your ears

–bruising you

from the inside out.

Some stone,

some gold knuckled,

some without gloves,

it’s too obstinate

to concede. . . .

it’s only when

it decides to skip it

. . .

altogether

. .

are you

knocked out

.

of the ring

 

prompt: one way

Wind

earth breathes

–in through trees

–exhales

hyperventilates

–gales

winds howl

(in climatic shift)

–scud

–clouds knit

and bear down

furrowed

tears hammer mud

–world

spins until dry

–forms

prism in sky

–warm

(in climatic shift)

–sun

beats  like a heart

–one

day in a life

–run–

Piscine Prompt

He was a really

BIG fish

if measured by scale. . .

heavy on the iridescence

the catch of which

varied by tail

blank eyes

might blink,

streams might reverse,

and Finned fellow

might fly!

always for himself &

~in this sense~

Superficial.

Yays & Booze

Such insight

from bud light

moments–

beyond

“I love you, man”

epiphanies

of high degree

warrants beer in hand.

in wine

there’s truth

Erasmus said,

a fact withstanding time

veneers wear thin

revealin’

the things we try to hide

so raise a glass

or maybe four

I think you really ought to

go off kilter

lose the filter

find genius in a bottle.
