HELL IS A LONELY PLACE











OF KINGDOMS

They were of kingdoms,
and of green pastures.

And the devil wrote
their names, high,
on the crying wall.

And they did surely cry.

Their souls cry repent.

And their bodies
become one with dust.

and the devil spoke their names.



LOOKING AROUND AT OTHERS

looking around at others while
others are looking around
and none of us have much
more than a pot to piss in,
and the taxman will soon
be around to tax the piss pot.




they hold their babies
up high
on a hill
just south of the hay field
a ritual
long cut in stone
long old
ladies; saintly ladies
ladies of faith and fate
ladies of fire and doom

they hold their babies high

KISS THIS

Kiss this, as if this
is all it was ever
meant to be.

and this is the best
part
there will ever
be of me.

Passion resting
on it's knees.

Just a tease.


there are those days when taking a good shit just ain't good enough.




all about courage
the whole stinking mess
courage
reaching down deep
cesspool of life
that stinking
smelly mess
here to eternity
eons of brown shit
easing 
through the gaps
in our souls
dragging
our miserable lives low

YOUNG MAN

As a young man
I rode a wave
of insanity,
searching for
eternity.

Now,
as an old man,
eternity
is searching
for me.

But,
I cannot
escape
my insanity.

it has nothing to do
with gravity,
but everything to do
with insanity.



awake to the sound 
rain on the roof
beautiful morning



its her birthday today
she forgot my birthday,
so I'm forgetting her birthday.
a trend the government
started to eliminate
holidays involving
buy-outs 
and government funding

MAYBE THERE IS

Maybe there is
live after death.

Maybe death is death,
and we lean
against
each other
in hope of holding
each other
above the fray
and possible
desecration
our our dying souls

hell, I don't know!
