It Must Fit

It Must Fit

Trying to improve it. To make it better. Whatever it may be. It might be love. It might be food. It might be health. It might be pain. It must evolve. It must be pushed. Further. Harder. Shorter. Softer. It must be rhymed. It must fit. Fit inside your lip. A word that is everything. […]

Pressure Tuned

Posted by on Jul 29, 2012 in 2012, Choken Word
Pressure Tuned

Just to sit here. To listen. I hear everything. As it sits on top of me. As if under sea. Pressure tuned. New sounds balloon. Crickets and grasshoppers duel Over a war of attrition outside these brick walls. To devour enough for winter’s tomb. To store enough while summer blooms. Humidity swells the doors shut. […]

Shell Head

Posted by on Jul 29, 2012 in 2012, Choken Word
Shell Head

Shell of head. Mind cooked. Poisoned. Nutrient fed. Attached to iPad. Buds in ears. Caffeine directed. To get off bed. Wi-fi flows. Fingertips glow. I am gutted. I don’t know. Slowly simmering. This bowl of life. This recipe led. Steels time right. Without a fight. To be here now. For light and sound. To record […]

I’m Batman

I’m Batman

I have hidden and watched. I have had my back broken. Been kicked over. Muscles ripped open. Terrorized. Devoured slowly from the inside. I have screamed publicly For mercy from the prison of my body and mind. I have had my skull strapped to a table. Sawed open. Examined. Mapped. Had brain matter scooped out, […]

To All My Fathers

Posted by on Jul 25, 2012 in 2012, Choken Word, Survival

All my fathers are now gone with the transit of Venus. They have all toed the line. They have made all of their deadlines. So many accomplishments. So much community built and rebuilt. They were all well respected and sometimes feared. For men can speak with their fists sometimes quicker than with their lips. All […]

Meditation on Jacksonville

Meditation on Jacksonville

A city is much more than its streets. It is more than the air it breathes. A city is the people it feeds. It is the minds it nurtures and breeds. It is the music it organically grooms. It is the food and drink it bleeds. Jacksonville is the city from which I was born. […]

Once Fallen

Once Fallen

Hair wraps our bodies. Covers it like cheap makeup. Distorting our frailty. An evolutionary step not needed. For we are stronger. More agile. More adaptable. Once fallen the distortion is clearly seen. The fur body cleansed. The flesh body uncovered. No cap on balding head. Even if expected, cheeks go red. Human weakness reminds one […]

Another Brick

Another Brick

I lie strapped to a table. A dark sterile room. Red lasers crossing in zoom. Lining up skull to table. So robots can rotate. Mapping brain to correct frame. Pink Floyd streaming. You are invisible. You are applied in measure. Given in small doses. You navigate through me. Computer guided feed. Through bone and tissue. […]

The Fatigue

Posted by on Jul 16, 2012 in 2012, Choken Word
The Fatigue

Eyes shut. Ears plugged. The world outside will adjust. As I lie in hibernation. I have not slept this long since college. Hungover days of ignorance And youthful bliss. Band-aided with drunken sunrises. For sleep like this I have no knowledge. As it falls deep, dark, hard. I wake up and it is noon. I […]

The Enemy

The Enemy

An enemy worth killing Is not small. Does not beg. Does not know your name. Has done the economics. Knows you are not to be fed in prison. Knows that there is only so much to consume. So much water to be drunk. So much corn to be eaten. Uses you for slave labor. As […]

The Sensitive

The Sensitive

Lights, camera, action. Brain drain, the stimulus must refrain From glaring and snapping and moving qucikly at me. I hear a boy dropping his plastic Water bottle over and over, for giggles. I hear men speaking over me of their second homes. Maybe bragging, maybe informing one on How far out of the city is […]

Chocolate

Chocolate

The album plays with this rich black hard vinyl notes. Plastic dripped shining core. Gray cotton balls of fog float by, dense with distant valleys below. Mountains high above to climb. Extending in both directions. Outlines of digital prints. Silhouettes. Three dimensional rapture. Large winded instruments plucking bombs. Floating horizontally. Aqua blue in their approach. […]

Geronimo

They can take your body. Enslave it. Make it work for others So you might have food and water. Make you a slave to your flesh. They can make you do all of this Through false promises. Through fear many succumb. But they can never take your spirit from The world from which it comes. […]

The Mask

The Mask

The mask is put on wet like a warm wash cloth. Slowly it is pulled skintight, downward. Your teeth grip a mouthpiece so there is no breathing but through covered nostrils. No eye holes. No mouth hole. No nose hole. No movement at all. No chance of freeing oneself. Strapped down to a table. No […]

To Define

To Define

I define you. So I can speak to you. So that your name holds no power. What are you? Are you the individual or the culture? Are you inside me or everywhere? Where do you begin and end? I see your photos. I know your pathology. I consume you in my food and water. I […]

Take a Number

Take a Number

I stand in this line waiting. For my name to be called. To be approved. To be poisoned. To be irradiated. For cells to be killed. The ones that grow too quickly. The ones who grow confused. Where am I? Why do I grow here? Why do I not fit in here? I need more […]

For Venus

For Venus

One file exported. Click. One file imported. Click. Into new generations. From legacy systems. Ready for future rhythms. To be set to beat. Click. Click. I have given it my all so you might know. Backspace. No more rackspace. File zipped. Site scrubbed. For my ancestors. I did not write a book. I saved time. […]

Ode to Prometheus

Ode to Prometheus

These fingers type words seeking answers to questions no one knows. Where did we come from? Who created us? Where are we going? Is it worth knowing? One word at a time, these lines come. We will seek until the end because we feel the emptiness of being left behind. A species floating alone among […]

Cocoon

END. We hear of massacre. Of murder. Of horror. Of war. We speak of natural resources. Of oil reserves. Of gas prices. Of water crisis. Of food prices. Of starvation. Do not blame anyone. Do not point fingers. For we are a young species. Dinosaurs walked for millions of Years. Months. Weeks. Days. Hours. Minutes. […]
