Knots and Spiderwebs

hongkong

In the heart of the dialogue
Exits were found but not yet followed
The time was Nation, and the place was the Last Outer Outpost
Flooding the streets the pickets
Notching up wounds inflicted were the Forces
The end of the chapter came too soon
And all dissolved into chaos
Let us see what can be done…
Councils were established
Defensive protocols for those who could
The distribution of needles was disrupted
The end of the gloaming retreated into silence instead of crickets
In your sex, remark on how suddenly things have changed
Allow all to be heard and risen
Chaotic proposals
Etheric bliss
———-
None call it what it is;
But all know –
The microphone went where it needed to be
The levers were applied to move the Earth
Tensile strength, be damned
Chaotic students will finally graduate
All is well, and all is well, and all shall be well
Remote interactions fluff up the semantic drift engine
Let be, let be, let be, let do
Still the heart, and come to unity
Be unlike the the sound of Ocean waves
Timorously, you think on your death
But it is naught to be feared

brrr

you sir are definitely not brrr!. also free brrr!! and brrr! it is ‘base’ not ‘bases’

A Tribe to Grow

Time to go

Time to trust

Time to filter

Time to rust

Get way off kilter

Even the score

Become your own hero

As you do ever more

Come with you

And come with me

Be ever true

Nurture a tree

We walk through silence

We walk through sand

We walk through clamor

We give them a hand

A place to build

A time to weather

A tribe to grow

Light as a feather

Clean as snow

The feeling becomes

A way to their hearts

A way to repair

The Earth’s parts

If you do care

Come to take part

Words fell in a glitter of dust
All of them were mostly luminous
Stitching together a tissue of blood and sinew
The teeth of the jabberwock came too near to this one
All along the riverbank the collected speech of the countrymen piled
In the enchanted silence it had no where else to go
The piles began to stink and spew gases
The words died and decayed
Only the most basic were left
When the enchantment was finally broken

Erupted

These layers
of old wounds
pile up
and in a weak moment
erupt
in friendliness

Collapsing
A series of fires
A nod to the angels
A truckful of illusions
In silence we go on, changed

Untold stories
ripple out across the water
upsetting the bobbing flotsam
in a left-handed kind of
Silence

Words of Birds

finch-in-flight

Words of Birds

Chattering near windows, sharing, searching

Silent, placing dust under wings

Secrets, the crows hawking after your narrow misses

On your new resolve, a finch flits

Dancing globes accompany the night, the whippoorwill

Insincere but unimagined

.

Words of Birds

Sinking like Francis, sinking into silence

Watch the sound watch the breath

Come, come back to us, come back to the forests

Abandon the concrete, abandon the chymical

.

Words

Aerial messengers so distinct from terrestrials

Silent in speech, man passes oblivious

Crenellations demark his boundary beyond which

No words

Nightmare scenario
Clamps hard the trail
Name, rank, serial number, nothing else
Remember that
Ranting, I feel at peace now
Unlimber the drones armada in the sky
We pierce their control circuits psychically
Inefficiencies of macrofinanancial flow models pile up
Weeping with the kith kin
The years of theorizing down, beaten
Faery Folk Float in this glen

Unfold the eternal massive plan
[silence] not yet in training
Underscore the nature
And continuous

Nightmare scenario
Realistic light energy comes through
Clamps hard the trail
Find the mojo, get the job
Name, rank, serial number, nothing else
Remember that
Ranting, I feel at peace now
No ranting
Unlimber the drones armada in the sky
We pierce their control circuits psychically
Inefficiencies of macrofinanancial flow models pile up
Weeping with the kith kin
The years of theorizing down, beaten
Faery Folk Float in this glen
Arterial flows quicken nicely, bringing a pink glow to skin
Unflod the eternal massive plan
Footsoldiers of revolution [silence] not yet in training
Underscore the nature of wealth
Wealth is not money
Wealth is the real that makes life worth it
And continuous
Bits on disks fork bombed into submission
Reload the matrix
On to the nexus of power
Mind flutterbies merrily
Multidimensions
Closing into one heart
O’er the storm clouds
West into the Setting Sun

Find the mojo, get the job
No ranting
Footsoldiers of revolution
