Two plus two does not equal five
You’re subversive by remaining alive By thinking independently, you’re disputin’ A rouge in the night like the fellow Rasputin
You don’t have to pick a side with these villains
Coming after the people with their fists clenched Instead choose love, honesty & compassion That will always be enough for a soul to be quenched

You cannot pick your thoughts
The conscious can’t be steered
Without love, hope and magic
The future will be as dark as you feared Like this: Like Loading...

You give up your voice
When you choose to take their hand You sacrifice your honor When you go joining their faceless band
You deem yourself unremarkable
Once they take away your vote No longer choosing for yourself Their drudging spirit grabs your throat
The hoard directs you how to think
& can make you recite all sorts of things You deserve your time in Hell When you hand them your own strings Like this: Like Loading...
Stretching up & yawning
A lazy morning not to compete
My mind has been overloaded
Time for those files to delete
Our souls are priceless
So why do we always sell, sell, sell
This morning I’m choosing to dwell within
& the secrets I find I’ll never tell Like this: Like Loading...

Hobnobbing on a summer’s day
Listening to a calm Pan flute Barefooted on the peaceful grass But this heat makes it all moot
Ignoring all the world’s hate
We choose love above all the static Holding on for a moral life Survival in this society is never automatic Like this: Like Loading...
Life isn’t so perfect
We’ll all get bumps & bruises
Nightmares will find a way
But the path is the one she chooses
Victims are merely lame footnotes
She’s the heroine of her own script
Casting off their burdens/ flipping the bird
“Fuck off, society” she blatantly quipped

These broken & delayed dreams
Electric toothbrushes that constantly hum A pocketful of change & girls with eyes so pretty it makes me dumb
I’m not one to make a great scene
Yet I’m your average middle-aged guy Not counted among the mundane I couldn’t be normal, even if I tried
So we’re all stuck in this spinning limbo
A world with mixed up priorities & hate I’m confused by all this wasted time One of these days the hourglass will cease to rotate
So, I’m probably going to be late for work
For my beautiful woman resides in this bed I could be responsible & get there on time But I’m always going to choose to love instead

I’m sitting here morose
Reading pages & thumbing my nose Bored by the status quo Breaking off from the path we chose I’m searching for a worthy woman To take by the waist & forever dance Who desires to explore love & live by the seat of her underpants

There’s so much talk of being wild
Like there’s a constant harness holding us back
But its just an illusion for others to see
You’re choosing to embrace all that you lack
These false pretenses are keeping you low
Images of a manicured life on your social media feed
Spending your days adjusting other’s perceptions
When these aren’t the actions a happy life really needs
It’s difficult to perceive any truth as you focus the camera
The projection of crazy as you manipulate your reputation
Here’s a secret, the honest people don’t really care &
The real wild ones don’t bother with perfect punctuation

Empty wine bottles clink; devoid of all inspiration
But that’s not the way you remembered they bled
Choosing the perfect wording for posterity
A trembling shadow of what the poets once said
We once set out to create a fresh universe
But that’s not the way I can any longer think
Falling in love with strange, beautiful women
The source & reason for all the dedicated ink
Our souls entwined in deliberate communion
But that’s not the way that I came to be lost
Specific writings to engrave our cosmic lust
Forever entombed within this highland frost Like this: Like Loading...

Incomplete rants are broken thoughts
Antique shutters dangle in the breeze Vaccinated by expired truth serums Eye twitches; our hostess is ill at ease
Yet remaining upright on the page
Our fate wrapped in a trickster’s charm Subtle strokes without remorse Only dried ink leaves us disarmed
Subverting all the easy answers
Sacred is our fundamental right to choose However your speculations drift Cut the devil’s throat and wrap him in Winter’s hues Like this: Like Loading...
This is a game we can’t lose
& I’m very good at taking cues
A reflexive wink or a low moan
Demanding a perfection we hone
Bliss comes in any position we choose Like this: Like Loading...
