WITH AGE

With age the vine grows sweeter
but some liquor even sooner
a gallant soul to mix
produce potent spirits

THE MORPHOUS BOOK

When we first
open the book
of life —
tis a mystery novel
and looking back
after time —
a catalogue of memories

IS FOR THE CRAZY

Image

is for the crazy people
always jumping away
fearful kittens scratching

my-sharp sword for slicing
butter on cold days
and who cares

the ticket meter is full
avocado sliced
bleeding incredible red

and the next flag to fall —
is false like the words
out of that district
…the legal criminals
— you know
look in your wallet
see?

so cry me a tear
then shut it up
— superglue it

no time for fearful twits
grow a brain and grab
your socks —
mother [nature baby]
is pissed
freeze
burn
trans-
for
nation

WALK-IN

Image
(C) ep robles 2012

IN a dream there I went
at first thought —
i must awake surely now
for i found myself inside
another skin

curiously i watched
as a mouse in a corner
imperative do no harm
then revolt consumed
decency for i knew

just a parasite i was
great haste leaving —
i left the scene
and awoke as a criminal

CONSIDER THIS

Image

in my sane sanitarium bees gathering
o’er some ocean skinless creature
a burrow knee deep but vastly so
i sometime gather some piece or bits
this — an hour glass shaped thought
finely falling nexus-falls between me
why surreal-lie squashing all i do

and darkness — what of it

SO BECAME

so became my friend who offered my life
beneath the shade of elephant eye
the brownest emotion of nature’s side

sahara knew me very well — she feels
baking the skin of back from olive

to black        i love her fields

two nights before the feather fell

the light accord

my fair-weather dear

tonight i run to fetch my meal

quickly-swiftly upon death’s heel
