They Be Like

Posted on July 29, 2015 in Poetry - 0 comments - 0

They be like, “Permission to enter?”
I be like, “Stay at the gate. Lest you violate your oaths and conflagrate.”
They be like, “Care to dance?”
I be like, “Y’aint ne’er seen the waves sway this way.”
They be like, “Is this kid for real?”
I be like, “Nam for fake. Y’aint ready to tread across this lake.”
They be like, “Ignorant and arrogant. Poor child.”
I be like, “You’re an avalanche, I’m just a snow flake.”

Open Seasons

Posted on July 29, 2015 in Poetry - 0 comments - 0

I work in secret. Secret lairs. Can you peep it?
Only masters understand certain phrases as I’m speakin’.
I work in public. You won’t ever catch me creepin’.
I am the light. I am the shadow. I am everything you’re thinkin’.

Catch a whiff of my breaf they say that is stinkin’.
They say that Truth hurts, but I ain’t hurtin’ when I breathe it.
Some hear a name and hit the streets quickly to preach it.
Their voices tire and tongues dry. They can’t believe it.

They sit and sink in deeper into the brittle cement.
They think they failed but only transition as they relent.
They’ll get another chance as they reflect upon they treasons.
Or transition into demons wandering the night sleepless.

Expedient students would learn well to take a recess.
Excess of Faith can send one into dark unwanted regions.
Don’t lose your heavenly masters to your worldly weakness.
Take a break and reflect upon the changes of the seasons.

I am the same in that I am not the same.
I am not the same in that I am the Same.
I am the collusion of calm. I am the wet of the flame.
I am the protrusion of all and the transition of planes.

I am the voice that echoes and dances in chains.
I am the free man that wears shackles in a cage.
I am the discovery of love within the discovery of shame.
I am the richest of all with no riches to claim.

Unaffiliated, I’m in debt to no gangs.
No spiritual advisors, I have no one to blame.
So many roads to trail, but they all lead to fame.
So I hang my head low and only whisper my name.

Alms for the bore, no space for loose change.
True hearts bear evermore treasures for all others to gain.
True seeds bear True fruit nurtured by True Faith.
Die Hard to the Root, steady Wax for the Wane.

Winter Divine

Posted on July 28, 2015 in Poetry - 0 comments - 0

rip it like im fluent in so many dimensions of fluid conceptions. maps with new directions.
to new erections of massive distinctions with features that leave true poets utterly speechless.
shadows that creep in with light travelers compete with stones. nomads with no homes.
no cash for no gold. old stash that’s grown mold. silverbacks on silver tracks with yellow fever choke holds.
shake a feather with tethered skin of tender hands. underground weathersmiths seek deliverance.
peaks of mountaintops with battered ships. chatter lips chapped by a winter’s grip. tongues licked by ice bricks.

Autumn’s Dress

i know you’re curious and rightly so
so allow me to wet your appetite slightly more
sure, you’ve been taught to listen and listen well
but speaking is quite different and whispering different still
i drink from a different well and work a different mill
your obligations are contract, i work at will
i don’t need contact to seal a deal
we’re all connected after all. same roots, different fields.

Missed Cons True Duh

Posted on July 28, 2015 in Poetry - 0 comments - 0

whispers fill the air they tell me all their secrets
so many ears that don’t care and eyes that don’t believe it
do i misconstrue the few arts left
am i so less true of a True Artist

you try so hard to build right, you’ve no arms left
sorry if the words i write make you alarmist
no need to panic, i’ve no plans to clog caves
i’m past the dance of convex and concave

i’m now the hydra embedded in all rock slaves
i stay true to the winds that paint and brush waves
i blunt false fangs with True chemical change
True lemon juiced-page, True lights of True length
