fractured wings …

fractured wings …


splinters stabbing,
emotions jabbing, the knife twists agonisingly slow,

deeper into the hearts innermost core,
where its only you,

of course, ’cause for 12 a d some years,

it has always, always,

been …

you … …

in a world tugging,
pulling, drawing & quartering,

each soul apart,

and as mercy, humanity, love,

effortlessly, and resistance-free,


embracing ignorance, hugging credulous unreason,

fracturing the human bones,
cartilage, tendons ripped,

shattered hearts, broken minds,

there can be but one answer,
simplistic as it may sound,

teach respect, not creed,
worship shared humanity,
shun lecherous greed,

then, and I fear only then,
may we truly, as one,

from our common fountain feed … …


talkin’ gay abandon blues … …


they tell me I’m pretty,
fellas always telling me I’m cute too,

oh but they weren’t, aren’t,
nowhere as irresistible as you,

it ain’t the way you do your hair,

oh no it ain’t the way you dress,

and it sure ain’t cos’ you’re a smooth talkin’ fella,

oh no,
it ain’t cos’ of any of that and much more,

i got the blues for you,

staggering away from my liquor store,

so say its true, its eatin’ me up inside,

say it so there ain’t no place i can slip away and hide,

or say nothing at all,

that’s the ache of the blues,
ain’t never gonna know,

if life is gonna kick you down,
if you’re gonna stumble, and fall,

or if you’re gonna be as you have always been,

standin’ proud, tall,
stoic, but never just a wall … …


talkin’ nugget-o-gold blues … …

stolen glances,
hearts aflame,

oblivious, blind,
reaching out,

aching for,

not much,
but everything,

everything human,
not much,
but everything human,

eyes meeting eyes,
the furnace of your being,

your breath scorching me,
desire like tinder,

an oasis in this desert,

of my life,


smiles, tears,
pain, fears,

joy, happiness,


ah, but you see,

where you are,
right now, presently,

is where i saw you last,
in dreamy waves of wishes long past,

yet, still alive,

living today, now … …

… … so may i join you,
and all that i know to be true,

cloaked beneath monsoon skies,

to share,
to quench roaring flames,
of need,

biddin’ adieu to yesterdays shames,

singin’ these blues into our shared night,


intense, never dense,
and all that jazz,

though oftentimes,

laying it all bare,

devoid of frills,

of candy confetti-meaningless razzmatazz … …
