in venomous flowers lie a
secret buried within a secret;
a dark tale of no mystery, but of
sad luck and muck

for if secrets were clean they would
possess a mossy swamp to
cover them up and
leave no one to sit or trot

towards the horizon
willows layer for oil to burn
pine of larch and black poplar webbed
between boundaries with fences high

humor entombs itself
past the pebble path
landing finally on a wooden shelf
where shadows are the aftermath

Gideon Conspiracy

accompanied souls
extracting tiny pillars
visible through clear tubing

behind each substance
building love in each bite;
truth by decision

key environment
developing suffered people;
hell through unwanted attributes

life is life
seeing past ourselves
idealistic by so many hells

unanswerable answers
preaching to one another
questions through desperation

oblivious truth
listening to the call
built by us

valley mind
telling wherever
freedom stories through me

Flash Before My Eyes

dark corners stretch past time
disappearing in faint colors that
define each day gone by and
days renewed

these days;
treasures hidden until
the definition of treasure
no longer applies

this constant wonderment
this delay of emotions
these secrets of life lived
only showing at the last moment

Friday Night, Saturday Morning

stale naked body
bumpy skin
raw tiles
filtered water

laughing, beer, dancing
midnight feasting, and
escorting an old friend home

hands brush back
excess, breathing into
submission of spitting out

the kiss became the scale
weighing on one side
a life partnership based
on human flesh

pressure off
resisting bitter air
scratchy cotton
naked body anew
