OathIf I could take the sun Id take you too
If I could carry my heart Id carry yours too
Id part the seas and bend the wills of man
Just to say Ill love you too
Reality is to me the last line of defense
In this world of madness and strife
And we break the rules just to say were sorry
Lest anger be our last words
Freedom is to me an openness of mind and body
A will to live and hunger as wild beasts do
And if freedom be the blessed thing
Id let freedom be yours too
Journey HomeI stand on the lakes shore, toes bathed in water and sand. I breathe in the cool fresh air and shiver. Its not the same. I start to walk out into the water and the steady in and out of the water laps against my knees. I lower my arms and drag my hands through the loose plant life and algae drifting on the surface. Its not the same.
I turn to face the familiar voice calling out to me. The sight of my older brother warms my heart and eases my homesickness just a little.
I slog back through the water and slime to meet him. A slight smile pulls at the corners of his mouth as he takes in my a
An Arizona NightThe stars hover silently overhead and a coyote howls from somewhere off in the distance. Another coyote howls back and the yipping calls of three young pups who decide to join in make me smile.
I call out into the night, sitting up to look through the red and orange fire at the girl prodding it with a burnt stick. Even in the firelight she looks like little more than a shadow. Or a ghost.
Cant sleep? Youre not afraid of some lonesome dogs are you?
She asks, looking up at me with a raised eyebrow and a mischievous smirk.
Yes. And no. I was just thinking of home. Thats all.
Tandem PoemDoes the dream die today?
It dies gladly
Do the children shout hooray?
And shout their praises madly
And what will come from the fray?
Quetzalcoatl's frightened medley
Can you hear the moon's wolves calling?
For a life akashic lost
Now feel the world falling
Yet none shall pay the final cost
And gateways open to all things appalling
Heretic fountains sprout across
Dreams are cast in die
Forged in frigid fire
All fair kings learn to lie
In circumstances dire
Watch these lines of lives tie
To a frantic jangled lyre
Lives not does the queen in frost
I hold the heart and sing a gentle song
Coiled rays light tresses tossed
Beneath the Acid SkyThe sky hangs low above our heads. It's more like a tarp, really. A white membrane suspended above a tiny, artificial planet. Structural formulas of various acids pattern the sky. Acetic acid. Hydrochloric acid. By the time you're five years old you know every pattern by heart.
"Phosphoric acid. Boric acid."
I whisper to myself, laying on the vast expanse of grass. Soft folds ripple across the sky. Absently I scratch at the gravity generator clamped around my right upper arm. This planet is so small compared to Earth, at least that's what people tell me. There isn't much gravity, so the sky hangs low enough so that if you tried you could th
A Memo For TimeTell me, who are you?
The stony judge and wild creature
Who bends for no being
And answers to no will but your own?
With the force of time you shape our lives
Without cruel judgement.
Without a biased eye.
And still we hate you for it
Because in your fairness we see you brutal.
Friends and enemies do not exist.
Lovers and haters are the same.
All the world that is.
You rule it all.
Only because you can.
So we claim to know you better.
To know your mind,
If it exists,
To know your spirit
Despite the fact we cannot touch it.
You are something wild.
You never bend.
You never break.
And try as we might you will never answer
