Born in Hate

How could one man escape his wretched fate
Of compulsion carried through every age
Inspired men, morals to disengage
Who can hope to turn the bent soul straight
From hate that arrogant fear did create
He kills, blinded by unreasoning rage
And finds he trapped himself within a cage
Where wisdom and repentance comes too late
Hate that once was his now demands he die
For life aged pride won't allow him to plead
For those that he has killed will others cry
Hope and remorse will he himself deny
With his death will he and mankind be freed
But hate will forever in mankind lie

Train Tracks

Smoky haystacks float
Tender fluffs settle
Among iron boards
Lying aside each other
Rumbling whirs
Crackle overhead
Chatter flaps
Through open air
Screeching light
Runs against the line
Where scuttlemites lie
Searching orbs gaze
At memor winds
Streaking by

Learning the News

He was surprised by the news
I wasn't surprised he was surprised.
The look on his face came as no shock to me.
I figured before I told him my news
He'd be angry, upset but
Not shocked as he was.
To tell him the news came as
One of the hardest things I'll
do in my life.
Thoughts of loosing a very dear friend
Went through my mine.
But that was not the case
Even with the shock he was still
Supportive.
Still willing to be a friend.
On learning his friend was gay.
He celebrated the diversity that
had come into his life.
I celebrated the chance to show
my dear friend diversity.

Beginning to the End

Time goes by so fast
It seems as it has past
Now look back at the memories you had
Don't let them get to you and make you mad
Remember all of your friends, the good and the bad
Some of them are l The ones you hung out with the most
Won't leave you and turn into a ghost
They will stick with you through it all
Even when you trip and you fall
You get embarrassed but she still sticks with you
Through it all when you're sick or feeling blue
She'll never leave you from beginning to the end
If she moves you will have letters to send
If you know what I mean this might ring a bell
Yeah I'm talking about you, my best friend, Mel
Time goes by so fast

Now look back at the memories you had
Don't let them get to you and make you mad

Won't leave you and turn into a ghost
They will stick with you through it all
Even when you trip and you fall

Figure Eights

We don't talk.
We just travel together.
Vows of silence.
She travels there.
I travel here.
We meet in wide arcs.
Like figure eights
Like infinity.

Sex Road to Lithuania

Author's Notes: this too, was written while looking at a photo from a magazine. the lady is shown from waist down, standing spread eagle and dressed in white. she has positioned herself in front of an antique sink. the colors of the picture give the impression of lonliness and angst. and at the bottom it is written that she is a member of the oldest profession.

her legs are spread
(she is waiting for abduction)
straps of white
and an anchor of AIDS
hold her from truth

an incestuous pregnancy
streamlines down her (spent) thighs
creating a column
that she mounts
for
pay - day
comes and now
she can buy her
token to
memory loss
lapse
she can inculate her
token to
time loss
lapse
and deep down
she prays
for lituania

Audrey in my Garden

Author's Notes: this poem was written while studying a photograph by helmut, that was published in a magazine. it is a photo of a man, facing backwards, gazing head down, at a wall. he is drenched in a plastic covering, and he is naked a shivering. his hands are placed slightly backwards and at his sides, and his nails are painted white. the poem explains what meaning i gathered from the picture.

shame
kept warm in a plastic shield
and a zipper
wheezing
"let me out"
hell
is gathering dust
all around

but everyone thinks
audrey
is just
in my garden

but he is hiding
behind females
behind she - males
behind blackmail

his fingers are
tattooed white
(a symbol)
to remind him
that he likes
adam better than eve

windows to michael angelo

you reek
of stained glass
windows
(to)
michael angelo
(is your hero)
and your death is
feigned
by your fingerprints
but your colours are
felicitous
and your sights
unseemly

Titanic

The gentle, flowing breeze of the ocean,
The smell of salt water,
The taste if the deep, blue ocean
The feel of the icy, cold water

To this day the sound of the boat,
Children, and adult cries will bring
Back memories of those who died
On this boat The Titanic!

Haiku #40, 41, 42 - 3 Beach Haikus

Haiku #40

Drummers watch the sea,
Memorize syncopation,
Mimmick crazed heartbeats.

Haiku #41

Blind naked woman
Holds another's arm...telling
Her what men are like.

Haiku #42

She smells the ocean.
Her friend helps her count the waves.
Pounding surf hides cries.

Baptism to Fate

confessions of a trust fund flunky
tickled my sleeve
i danced with streetlights
and fed tulips
to the groundsman

i dabbled in the forebearance of
Lachesis
as he painted shadows
(on the concrete)
that simulated his mane

he gided me to
a staircase
obscured
by a film of
algid screams

all the while
he constructed
checker - board stories of
second - hand cinderellas and
hand - me - down rapunzels
while i codified
my dimensions
as they plummetted
down my neck line

he carried me to stair - top
(on transparent wings)
to a place where

i didn't have to
shave tulips at groundsmen
perform the green dance for lamp posts
or submit to the declarations of trust fund drop outs

a place where
amentia stagnates
and Nemisis and Clotho
dwell in liquified lunacy

he wanted to introduce me to his brothers

Feelings

Yearning heart,
Needs calm and care,
Searching forever,
In despair,
Mountains high,
Crowning peaks,
Finds not,
What it seeks,
Ocean blue,
Deeper depth,
Secrets hidden,
Protected kept,
Thunder storm,
Angry sea,
Crashing waves,
On the shore,
Angry sky,
Lightening bolts,
Crying tears,
Still provoke,
Certain want,
Certain need,
Love grows,
Who knows,
Fire fingers,
Reaching out,
Cherishes,
Perishes,
Like reckless passion,
When the end is near,
Burns the hottest,
Then disappears,
Frees the soul,
So knowledged a mind,
No more wars raged inside,
Tempestuous youth,
Wise with age,
More understanding,
Lesser rage,
Like the wind,
Feeling free,
Desert storm,
Insanity,
Desert vast,
Calmer, still,
Shifting sands,
Shift until,
Swept away,
To another place,
Shifting sands,
Begin again.

She Reveals Pandora

Author's Notes: this is a gift to my soul mate and best friend. she does not even comprehend how glorious a human she is. this is to let her know that for the first time, and the only time, her eyes have failed her. she is beauty in a cloak of shadows and scars.

she swam in a symphony of sex
gleaming with torrents of beauty
for a camera
to capture remnants

OF A COLLAPSED DREAM

she danced in the moon's lap
prancing around
his expelled breath
to immortalize a portrait

OF HER FANTASIES

she wears her sins
in a concave smile
and screams non - repentance
for a boy's eyes

TO MEMORIZE HER ILLUSIONS
