    I am

     

     

    I am

       a bombastic battalion

       of unified cells

     

    A nair’ do well freak army

       a billion strong

     

    I came

       from the cum

       of a comet crook

     

    I walk

       wise to the ways

       of a different day

     

    I am

    I am

       punk rock politico

       citizen Kane

      

     Wormhole warrior

       Against you

     

    I am

       sitting here sober

       

       in need of booze

       in need of truth

       …………of pussy

       …………of flowers

       …………of pain

     

     

    *****

     

     

    untitled

     

    The coyotes lust in the darkness for dawn

    their eyes glowing against a murky backdrop

     

    They tease death with every movement

    aiming at annihilation

     

    Our love sits in silent cunning

    daring them.

    The Transient Prophet

     

    The transient prophet spoke only in poems

     

    Dark denim destiny

     

    He had lived in waves of amber

    and forged long forgotten roads

     

    Magic maidens cared for him

    among throngs of shell shocked pawns

     

    Morning mayhem warriors walk scarred and anguished amidst the tortured fragments of

    civilization

     

    begging for answers

     

    Yet nobody listened when the prophet spoke

    Nobody heard a word
