Dear ancestors we cannot see. Make your lessons clear. Sprinkle magnets

Without Form

Without Form

Form with no form is the way the path water flows over land giving nurturing killing destroying buildings carving mountain rock Grand Canyon Form with no form is a chord is a note practiced for decades turned into jazz embodied in masters playing pure spirit Miles Davis Form with no form is science is math […]

Fireflies

Superclusters containing thousands of galaxies strung like pearls filaments of galaxy clusters the macrostructure of our universe at this scale Supernovae flicker like fireflies Neurons in the human brain fire electrical signals pulsing down dendrite filament highways lighting up our world the entire universe a vast quantum brain imagining its best self continually being born

Thirty Second Flash

It all moves so fast Through the hour glass Let us move slower Let us make it last As your limbs reach out to grasp As your head and body fall back Careening from consciousness Your life as you know it A video in fast forward Stitched together Nothing to second guess Only the best […]

The Zimmerman Rewrite

I surrender I. Flight not fight. Not seeking to invite another strike. Moving ones weight to another state. No gun needed to subdue anyone running from you. No more snake eating its tail. No more head to swell. This short exchange is done. Both opponents live on. Both soon to rise. For I surrender I. […]

Eating and Excreting

Eating and Excreting

You are as free as a tree. No real choice. No real voice. What did you want? The power to do all you desire? To be a god inside this mortal fire? To attain control? There is no free will. There is no free meal. There is no free will. There are no free bills. […]

Time Lives Here

Time Lives Here

You and me as we see. Key deer and iguana. An alligator or two. Large Gambian rats and peacocks too. A land wild and free. Settled by man but constantly humbling. With its beauty. With its water surrounding. With its one road running South. No going around. No not being on the island for we […]

Peek-a-boo

Peek-a-boo

I dislike people asking me how I am. Generally, I am well. Or some version of well, depending on varying definitions. But being unwell has never got me anywhere so I see no point in it. My doctor once complained to me that people complain too much about common ailments when they should just accept […]

Byron King Plays Souls and Gold

Byron King Plays Souls and Gold

Some people speak softly and suppress their opinions. Poet Byron King is not one of those people. “We have to quit screwing around. We have to get back to basics, back to spiritual investments and dreaming big-really big. Great countries invest in creativity and in collective consciousness, both byproducts of the human soul,” he says. In […]

Frozen and Thawed

I see 23 A dozen times a day. The more at peace the more I see. I am a man with a mask stumbling astray. His face too scarred for people to see. His arm too limp to use freely. Who sees his reality Frozen and thawed From the outside looking in. I wonder if […]

The Practice

The Practice

To feel one’s feet. The space between one’s meat. To find one’s balance. The symmetry that is substance. To extend one’s back. The spine inside intact. To open one’s lungs. The air inside unsung. To have one’s joints torn apart. The re-alignment gained, a new start. To know one’s body again. The spaces between friends. […]

Wedding Vows

Wedding Vows

these words will find their place.

Say It Again

what do people write about when they have nothing to write about? that nothing they write about is their everything. that black spot, hole, mole is their cancer. their immortality they are fighting. fingers move and thoughts groove. i don’t know what more i have left to give. does a person reach a point where […]

Akbar’s Theology #2 – I am that I am…

When you say you respect all religions, you are saying that you believe in more than one God. Or you are saying that God can manifest in different forms, which is almost equivalent. So, to respect other religions we must admit the limitations in our own religion. In other words, we have chosen one side […]

Akbar’s Theology #1

This is part of a larger thesis I am working on, that will eventually, once i clarify the argument turn into a full 21st century argument for the existence of God or Gods, and the need to utilize religious language to interpret experience and find balance. Feel free to critique or engage. Akbar’s Theology #1 […]

Burning Man…

In My Solitude….

With every additional year of life the creative person becomes more adept at his/her craft but what grows alongside of this mastery is the looming expanse of untranslatable selfhood, that quiet quality of one’s essence that reminds a person of his/her mortal challenge. Every creative act is an affirmation of life, and those works which […]
