PHOENIX OF SPIRIT

could a Heart made of Poetry
ever die ; into the ferocious
tied-lips of Life?
as a free bird —
poets are c l i ng
to me dear and sir:
as a bird
as life washed me clean
so warm and dry ; cleansing all
of the bluish wine-stains
and splattering’s of vomit,
we never lost the touch
that meant to mean so much
–dying embers of deliriums
and grinding rhythms of my
Love; i came to know the
skies and even the rock below
; i know the evening, and like
rising Phoenix of Spirit
as stress and fear roll back
as waves into the distances —
their eyes crying regretful
tears.

A WAR WITH LIES

i stepped inside
my throat
to choke a lie
the room was festive
with devils and
prancing disease
a war ensued
internally
the rest
a history
— acclivity!

ROADSIDE BILLBOARD SLOGANS (1940s-1960s)

TOASTER oven sandwich grin
on the family corner market
keeping all the secrets
within your baby warehouse
teach your kids about love
take 30 percent off their
soul and i like your mouth
come on in; let life fill
your pie hole-soul
don’t go bacon my heart
I couldn’t if I fried!
and you can’t drink all day
if you don’t start in the morning!
and T.Troup was a chemist
I’ve been missing life reading-
seeing soundbite lies
The first concentrated lies
come from roadside billboards
like-life riding in a chevrolet
THE thing what IS IT?
a golden opportunity sale
family fun! shakes & funnel cakes
~~ beef jerky too!
and Wall Drug sells coffee
for 5 cents a time ago

“YOUR MESSAGE HERE”
for 300.00 a month

GLASSFLOWER LIES

Love once kissed me to death
and bloomed a glassFlower
that broken beneathh your lies

A WEEPING LIE

A weeping lie
deserves
no compassion
best just let
it quickly die

IF I LIVE TO SEE

Image
(c) E.P. Robles 2012

a long time ago
a certain place
in a peculiar time
a naive notion

we danced in hand
and cursed the time
that moves across life
two lovers kissed by love

but if i ever live to see
such a love again in life
i will run toward Hades
that fire burns less than you

someone like you so intense
touched me across the land
beyond the surface or air
and grabbed my soul so tight

and you spoke candy words
to this gentle soul inside
i wanted to believe in you
but you decided to lie instead

and if I ever live to see
such a love again in life
I will run toward Hades
such a fire is cooler than you

TRUTH AND LIGHT

I’VE had a barrel of lies
rolling down upon my face
and spending all my days
wondering what was next…
I don’t want to spend my life
watching my back all the time
I need the truth as my armor
and a strength of Samson
won’t you be the truth and light
burning all the deceit and lies
I don’t want to be a burden
just the love of all your life

ANEMIC LIE

I SAW a lie — cross a path
it was anemic and weak
as it made its way
 
craving a soul that only knows —
a life in fear and pain
it did not have far to go…
