To consume what is not ours

 

Chili.jpg Christmas

A time of joy and togetherness

Where the sun shines beyond comfortable

on one side of earth

or

where the sky becomes screened with white and grey

on the other

In retrospect

there has been a year

of revolving painful insecurities

leading to turning the other cheek

to a disaster of extinction of flora and fauna

all year round

forgotten at the time of celebration

 

Recorded music entices blackouts

throughout each man’s castle

at this time of year

 

Who’s got a hand on the control

Who is in control

when the death toll rises

as sea levels consume the landscape

 

The exagerated theatrical plays

constantly performed

at the same time each year by political oponents

requesting we believe

there is no change

 

When it’s gone

there’s no use crying

The challenge of overcoming fear

allowing oneself to get closer to the edge

to summon all that the mind takes exception to

 

Means crossing an invisible line

 

Fighting the light that will break the dark

Being lonely amongst others

Is hard to digest

 

Trust once broken

leaves an emptiness that cannot be filled.

until human contact is made again

 

How we stay quiet

when the urge to scream becomes overbearing

can be brave – usually a safety valve in the recesses of thought

 

Unhealthy quiet control

can be like a steam locomotive

 choking

Remembering these times

I cry:  Someone loves you

Somewhere

Dedicated to Janine

Kookaburra Canberra

What is a single life worth?

one unsigned letter

disclosing the departure

time and date

of termination

The grim reaper waiting by the bedside

for the  release

of self-incrimination

with the final breath

 

The ones left behind

Crestfallen

shaded and downcast

with the realization that

your path is empty

for ever more

Follow me

I will lead you to the internal flight of the mind

One of freedom of imagination

Where ignorance can be placed on the scaffold

ready for execution

Opening the reality of acceptance

with creative thoughts

We can

together

coordinate group intellect

that  will harness compassion

We can

stand tall

centrally within the debris

that the powerful have showered upon us

The earth calls for us to travel together

determined in our resolve for the need

to participate in being one

with the right to be

equal humans on the one planet

 

Exposé

 

Descending into turbulence

searching for a clearing

my mind converting a breath

into a heavy burden

Eyes

whilst traveling to my lungs

 

Your unnerving facial expression

exhibiting perpetual criticism

toward human representatives

 

A public exposure of your disregard

and discontent of those that try and work beside you.

But your crime will be revealed as the solidarity grows

You will be defeated

Time

Sunset St Andrews beach

Rye back beach, Victoria, Australia 2018

 

I

request to be different

to walk this earth beyond expectations

my highs and lows not conceptually bound by human rules

To be breath taking at any given moment

and dangerous when confronted

Whilst still retaining soft edges

and a comforting voice

that can be carried by the breeze

Your mechanical life

beckons my outward appearance

to soften your emotions

until

time

has

diminished

Laughter is timeless

Imagination has no age

and

dreams are forever

Words

from those in high places

are like water down the river

on a page

Segments of lines

fragmented

 where you read between

A stream of text

with a line of expletives

Like foreign objects appearing at random

Painting over the foundation

of the original verse

so that identification is hidden
