Testigo (O/S)

Mama Gaia sighs her cry from a womb

woe riven while our soot-swollen eyes blink 

@ Tyranny tearing us Down to space-dust 

Until even our rind screams-open 

Is this wound of Being singing of knives 

Cutting  in line-hushed our fate now falling 

Down and merging with ashes dashed like brains 

Against stones -no One to save us. The sea 

Still murmurs & rain falls like an echo- 

A sorrow sounds between bird call 

And streets

Cracked from where bodies fell like buildings God 

Struck. Numb & dumb we with throats scissored 

And scarred, too scared to speak the holy strangled so slowly

Beneath the Sunbeam (O/S)

Beneath the sunbeam, a cold lingers 

Between buildings where djinn play, graves 

Of moss  covered with shards of glass 
Glinting sight fractured into a thousand-reflections yes, yet running razors 
To the rind these rivers of scarlet
Crying over falls for the schism to scatter 
Like stars across skies unseen 
By the blind who blanket their faces in memory 
Too late to see the haunt of purgatory peeling away 
Your layers of time like so much grime 

Drink (Outer Spiral)

  

Bring your cup here and be filled with plumes of fires 

Secreting themselves between trees where hide 

moonbeams minding the tune you spell your doom to. 

Yes- dance to the song tearing tendon, strumming 

every string to the beat of a breath leaving itself 

Query (o/s)

How does one mediate this agony of spirit?
This groaning and grinning,
this grinding of bone 
To make stone meal enough for bread 
May one eat well & hear the bells tell 
Their toll- a story of notes crowning the nakedness of night

Doin’ All Right (O/S)

Split my pants, flat on my bike 

But I’m doing all right Smoke my pipe &  saw the 

sights 

B/c I’m doing all right
Ate too fast, talked my funk But I’m doin alright 
Home at last, layin’ it down 
B/c I’m doing all right 
Move too fast, still out of cash
But I’m doin’ all right 
Lit some hash which flicked the gas 
B/c I’m doin all right 
Evicted & still a man convicted 
But I’m doin all right 
Sittin chillin doing nothin’
Because I’m doin’ all right
