I pick up a spatula and I think I see you through the blinds. Your
mouth unfolds into a smile as my body unfolds over the sink so
I can adjust my eyes through the plastic shutters. I tap on the
glass. You laugh at me and I tear the blinds from the top of
the window like a passionate idiot. With my feet in the sink,
I press myself against the glass with hopes of falling through.

or anything, there were some men downstairs that
had big carpet cleaners, and they were holding up
the elevator. So I stood and I pressed the button
a couple of times and maybe I said a curse word

gave birth to stairs.
The building only has six floors, and I was on the
sixth, not that this matters, it's only six floors.
I just thought it would be interesting to tell you
that I was at that top. Which then again, isn't so
interesting because it's just six floors, but it's
something to be on top, isn't it?
I'm not sure what I look like walking down stairs,
probably not much because I'm no dancer (but I like
to) and I'm no lightly hoofed animal (that would be
okay). But I went down the stairs pretty quickly,
and anyway, graceful for me I guess. My mind was

Raise up and go, be hauled erect upon frayed bones to crawl over cold earth

With waters giving, forming, birthing and forced upon your crown

Sphere or DiscoidHe drove up route 9 to route 7 for about an hour. Among the constant roadwork he turned off the highway and into a wide field of grass deeply corrugated by the passing back and forth of tractors, backhoe's. Twilight was turning the edge of the sky a glowing orange as the clouds pushed away and the purple of night was looming above in a steady approach, stars blinking in its wake, the moon a lazy eye. Out in the distance dark pines stood yet untouched. And sited there in that field dimly beheld within the nodding headlights a misshapen pyramid of earth formed by the need of men to move the earth and move it again. He switched the lights off as he went lurching over the uneven ground. He switched them back on. Arcing into the sudden bright swath a pale yellow monarch, itself leaving an incandescent dust trail, gliding in current of air impalpable.

His vision grew crowded with grains of noise. He could hear the magnified grindings of the parietal bones in his head. He wavered there before the long decline of stairs, one foot in the air before him. Visions of those who'd fallen here and split their pates on the rocks below were broadcast to him. He turned and went shambling upriver. Into a wide and darkened grotto among the trees.

All the windows were blacked and their drooping sills were perched with turtle shells and beercans overflowing with cigarette butts. He went around to the back yard. It looked like the unearthed midden of a terrible apothecary. The lawn was a polluted tract where not a clump of grass was visible among the littered debris. There were rust striped propane tanks, their valves stained a curious blue and sunk half in the dirt. Broken glass pie pans lay in the ground like deflated jellyfish. Piled gallon cans of acetone and thinner, their labels sun faded and corroding at the seams. Mounds of coffee filters stacked like outsized limpets and stained bright red.

The HermitIn the blue dark of morning a shambling mound was picking among the strewn and vine choked blocks of an old foundation. Ashen creature crept from swamp or cave. A hand withered dry and white as ground gypsum pawed at the rubble. Creased and torn old beggars hands. Leprous windings wagged from the spindly forearm. You could see the smell rising from him, foul and stained rags that are never removed. His scalp was rife with small forms munching his dandruff, breeding among the matted and knotty folds of hair. He shifted on his haunches like a beast and grunted like one, scratched his head, leg, shoulder. Each part of him crusted or bleeding. Scaled. He lifted to his eyes a cracked ceramic lamp and blinked at it and do those dim bulbs really see the thing. He looked up and blinked at Chapel crouching in the trees. He grumbled something. Chapel rose and came forward, the old man still grumbling to himself, eyes darting there and back. They seemed to be waiting each other out.The Hermit in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Every human who hath treaded upon land

the pompous fool who keeps company with angels,
angels plotting his demise once more
in a vicious battle with no regard to the land below
it shall send quakes of unforgivable might
and cast more into the hideous cave
So to thyself I give a word of counsel
if perchance thou wilt hearken:
worship those demons below
so ye may serve in Hell
and ye may be spared eternal torture.
Ye shall never reach heaven

A Dying Man's ThoughtsThis pain from head to toe bothered me at one point, but it is okay now, it is growing stale. I can smell the death on myself. I can feel the breath on my heart, blood running cold. I only have a few mintues left. I have said farewell to my loved ones, they have left to sleep. I am left alone in this bed, so cold. No, the bed is warm, my nerves are just acting up. Can't get to sleep, too much to think about. My only company is now my thoughts. At least they do not look at me pitifully, with tears in their eyes. Do they? Perhaps they do, perhaps I have always felt sorry for myself. Why do I pity myself? Because I am about to die? Many people die each day, do they feel this way, do thousands upon thousands of people feel like this, torturing themselves simply by thinking? I do not have the right to feel sorry for myself, at least I have a bed. But that will not make a difference soon.A Dying Man's Thoughts in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This

Dark and LightWhat is dark what is lightDark and Light in Spoken Word More Like This
In the absence of light there is dark
in the absence of you there is me
one depends on the other
you depend on me
mortal enemies for eternety
But light can not last for ever
and dark will be all that exists
darkness is immortal
light is mortal
dark is god
light is man
I am your god
as well as mine
and you try to defeat darkness
but darkness will be rid of man
and man shall harm no more
this is a genocide and both parties are guilty
you need to be in the darkness
before you can truly see what is there

the people lined up to be forgiven
and the water blessed en masse
in and out of sight
religion is a constant bombardment
from christians to buddists
all irrational, all fooled
and above all of them
a person reaping the benefits
money and power
greater than any political figure
hiding behined books and
centuries of unwavering traditions
adapting only when it suits them
bleed yourself until you see
whip yourself until forgiven
a story of pain
in the name of a lord
No rebellion against the church
but plenty against the government
not representing christ
oppression of religion
which oppresses its believers
how is this not fair
how can you not see
you get what you deserve
you have been treated differently
all your life due to the cross
you have not noticed
it was all you know
Treated like inadequate humans
you are offended when I say
There is no God
because you know it is true
will not admit it to yourself
all in the name of image

for you can not conceive its intricate nature
None can rule her, for her smallest of beings
shall destroy you,
create something useful of your insignificant "life"
create one less problem
give life to those who deserve it.
You die, and create two more plants
to replace the hundreds you killed in life
(we have a lot of work to do)
Mankind pursues perfection
and destroys the balance
Survival of the fittest
(the weak gloat)
Two children born,
ten animals die in vain
(so we can wear them)
Our machines crush life
under its steel fist
Nature fights back,
in an attempt to keep control
(where do you think cancer came from)
and we push the purpose out of sight
Why should we care
the "lord" is coming again
(we will no longer live)
the world is collapsing
who cares this man has black skin
crumbling beneath our feet
Crush the being of destruction
and their hideous servants
Crush your brother, your sister

(Just looking back though, is like watching everything on a fuzzy videotape)
I suppose, I never got the idea out of my head. Always jumping, but never, ever sticking the land.
It seemed to miss every chance it had. Every chance I gave it. Every chance it gave me.
My thoughts were kissing me, but I was too busy in real romance to care.
(I keep trying to watch the tape, but I get half way through the instructions, and they've been replaced with someone different, and they're trying to read me the instructions, in a language that I can't understand)
Since when had I stopped wining and dining my own mind? Feeding it only shit food and cheap liquor, so it could vomit up the most disgusting parts of my brain. Leaving me thoughtless and thinking with a purpose, that I've been told I have to think. Yes. My brain is there, but I can't find the good thoughts. The thoughts that made me think, really th

In the dark
In the deep of the forest
with my eyes closed
Always with my eyes closed tight
I see the best kinds of light
vivid and mysterious
then the happiest, the kindest light
the kind that will stay with you for days and float gracefully into your mind without asking, dancing and running a muck with your filed and filled memory
it ask who is that? and why not? and comes a-knocking at your door and demands an answer
the light knows when you feel down and says lets get smashed. and takes you out to a bar
and in a day dream the light begs to be let in, and you smack it on the finger and say NO, and treat it like a child, then you realize that the light is a child, your child, the light is you
