Literature
the illusion of saturn
What you see
is not a planet.
It is not
vast,
glorious,
or undiscovered.
It is merely an illusion of the moon
with a plane flying in front of it.
The plane's trail may resemble rings
that cut the spherical mass in two,
but the smoke rapidly dissipates.
What you see
is not beauty.
It is a pathetic excuse
for something trying too damn hard
to be another,
and it will never succeed.
You mistake it for a distant frontier
when it is a mediocre image:
seen by all and as familiar as dirt.

tattoos
I want my body
to look like
an apothecary's mysteries.

Glass Beaches
With every step he took
on the fine, powdery sand,
he left glass footprints
in his wake.
Such is the power
of the fiery renegade
I fell for.

Literature
Dormant
If love is akin to botanical beings,
it needs specific amounts of time and care.
Seeds germinate, roots take hold,
stems break the soil, and leaves reach for light.
Every plant progresses by design,
doing so only in the right area and temperament.
So when planting seeds in Winter,
at least expect them to remain dormant until Spring.

Patience
Just because love isn't flowering, 
doesn't mean seeds aren't planted.

Sequoia: Chapter Epilogue
Red solo cup
Cheers to the Governor
"Someone help her up"
 
There's no time to remember
Last night is blurry
I got to go, I can't linger
Buzzing in the tower
Getting loud its lobby
Low on control, high of power
The ring is discolored
Lack of hydration 
Poor priorities make a dullard

Literature
Prelude to the Divorce of a Nonexistent Marriage
It is an unparalleled sensation,
weighing down my lips and gaze,
and furrowing my brows.
It is the moment I realize,
"I am going to lose this lover."
A strange lace veil drapes over my body:
it clings to my neck like plastic wrap,
then has the audacity to intensify gravity
just enough to slam my soul to the ground.
Although it is merely a porous piece of lace,
it chokes me until I gasp, yell, and bawl.

Sequoia: Chapter II
The porcelain Victorian tea set 
poised itself atop miniature saucers,
embellished with accents
of golden glaze and fragile flowers.
The sapling is weak, 
yet rich with youth.

Sequoia: Chapter I
Like the rings of a tree,
my life is measured by those
left by: 
teacups,
mugs,
red solo cups,
and mason jars.
Their contents change day by day,
year by year.

Petite, purple buds
Ascend the green stem with grace
Let the perfume flow

Bulls Over Bodies
They can't smell the torn flesh
or see the rotten teeth and bones
of the broken children
under the shadows 
of their mighty, prosperous bull.
Their old, bloody money
paid for our kidnapping,
and bought the pavement
to glaze over our corpses.
To bastardize our godly existence 
is one of the strongest transgressions,
but to pay no heed to it in retrospect
is beyond cowardly.
You reap what you sow,
and they yielded endless maladies
when they tried to bury Jim Crow.
They abducted, maimed, and raped us,
erecting grand empires on our backs.

Topographic Map
High peaks of my nose and ears
Deep canyons of my belly button
Supple hills of my stomach and back rolls
Fluffy clouds of my kinky-curly hair
Caves of my wide nostrils
All meticulously drawn on a rich, bronze map

Forest of Beginnings
I come from a place
where the bullet shells
are sprinkled in the flower beds
of The Projects.
Countless young buds
are deflowered
by fragile, ignorant pricks.

24-Stars-of-Nirvana has started a donation pool!
20 / 2,000
Everyone wants to grow, but everything's got a price...and I'm poor

You must be logged in to donate.
Nobody asks me what I write about,
but I probably wouldn't tell them anyway.
Honestly, I barely even talk about the fact that I write.

It's ironic since this became a form of therapy,
and since I just like writing most things
in a poetic format. 
(Obviously...)

Anyway,
I'm writing about...
things I don't experience,
people I don't know,
and food.

I love food, who doesn't?
(Not many, I assume.)

I'm sure this is now long and boring,
and I've probably lost most of you.
(You're tired of the parentheses,
but I'm most likely talking to myself.)

I'll leave you with a call to action:
tell me what foods you want to see in my work,
donate money or a membership so I can change my username,
and, despite this harsh world, stay positive by loving as much as you can.

Art is a free form of self-expression.
We all harness this omnipresent energy.

This force drives love, hate, war, peace,
enlightenment, lies, empowerment, and weakness.

There is hideous beauty in it all.
