Disavowed

Neither left wing nor right

conservative or liberal,

he goes about his day

 

Living outside the parameters

of deception,

hell in heavens way

 

While living as dead

he vanquishes time,

each moment present now

 

Defying your judgment

refusing to choose

—all limits disavowed

 

(Dreamsleep: August, 2019)

 

 

 

To Be Alone

I go to the city

To be alone…

Distraction

Calling me away

From myself

Isolating my

Memory

Burying my

Thoughts

In endless concrete

Passing 1000 people

Never meeting

One

Never meeting

One

Who will tell me

About myself

Never meeting

One

Who will tell me

What is real

Never meeting

One

Who will ask the question

Why

In my darkest

Most confused

Moments

I go to the city

—to be alone
