Inklings

Cats play
Dogs pay
A thousand darts and inklings
Those who screw
And those who blew
Collected facts and sinkings
A drop of blood
A puddle of mud
A million lights are blinking
Screaming for light
Screaming to fight
As you do your thinking

Bubbling Up

chin3
Out of the cracks of malice comes
A brace of shivering quail needing
Sympathy, but getting payments, lost
To our broken eyes, bubbling
Up, on the other side of the world, flying
Free, for a moment before a shotgun
Rings out, downing one, in pity, seeing
Roughness

Person, wearing a hoodie, marked
Dream Police, disturbing my peace, wanting
To erase the delusion or the reality, either one, missing
The point for sure, a point I cannot know, unless
I ask, wishing, but perhaps the mystery is better,
Loving, the way I hope to finally find, keening
Over the rising winds, have hope, you are bleeding
All over the paper

errrrmm … Controversial

Having forgotten what we were going to write, and then that magnesium kicked in and made me all sleepy, this serving will be somewhat more chaotic and emotional than originally planned:

Half-broken girders hang sullenly over the landscape

As the chopper gunships fly over head

Ripping to shreds the tailings of the rights we held

We fight in the streets and destroy the enemies of the people

…………………………….

But no we aren’t really that sort of people ha,ha are we?

We’re nice people from the suburbs

I mean we just don’t DO things like that ha,ha,ha

What do you think we are, a bunch of terrorists?

…………………………………

Well let me tell you, babe, anyone opposing the enforcement apparatus in the street

IS a terrorist, or can be if they feel like it

Anyone opposing them with the pen is ‘radical’ ‘communist’ ‘gay agenda’ ‘loser’ or what-have you

The system knows how to disclaim itself and maintain itself

We are but Earth, as are they

……………………………….

But those of us here do not take orders

and sometimes the others do take orders, bad orders

being in an organized killing machine as a job has its way with people

as does jailing, assuming power over the lives of another

as does our abstracted economic system

where number gamers give all the orders from a distant citadel

.

never seeing the blood or the pain they cause

………………………..

most however just put up with it….

got to save for retirement and keep up that health insurance,

you know

dont we all
