False Premise: Shadorma

FALSE PREMISE

Mountaineers
Each their own mountain
Up and up
Leave behind
All those souls down far below
And each other too

Dumbed Down

DUMBED DOWN

Let’s try sensible
The smart ones love it in us
They feel less lonely

Before you, The sun and the moon were paper-thin plates

Way to go, Monica.
Way to go, Esme.
Way to go, Ben.
Way to go, reader.
Way to go.

Esme's Cloud

You can feel the teeth of this one. Enjoy.

Rime Riche – Monica Ferrell

You need me like ice needs the mountain
On which it breeds. Like print needs the page.
You move in me like the tongue in a mouth,
Like wind in the leaves of summer trees,
Gust-fists, hollow except for movement and desire
Which is movement. You taste me the way the claws
Of a pigeon taste that window-ledge on which it sits,
The way water tastes rust in the pipes it shuttles through
Beneath a city, unfolding and luminous with industry.
Before you, the table of elements
Was lacking, and I as a noble gas floated
Free of attachment. Before you,
The sun and the moon were paper-thin plates
Some machinist at his desk merely clicked into place.

Just Imagine

JUST IMAGINE

To imagine to live
Is not a trick on its own
Death is its sequel

Morpheus

MORPHEUS

Sizeless is spirit
Unseen beyond its creation
And God is a verb

Reality Television

REALITY TELEVISION

Creative writers
Drownded deep in surroundings
Every word just right

The Third Estate

THE THIRD ESTATE

An open heart and mind
Are always good
A fully functioning shit-detector
Can often come in handy too
In my humble experience

Black Hole

BLACK HOLE

They study deep space
The garden is overgrown
Odd priority

Anyway

ANYWAY

I don’t know what I’m doing
But I’ll do it anyway

This seems sensible
But I’ll do it anyway

This seems stupid
But I’ll do it anyway

I don’t know what I’m doing
But I’ll do it anyway

The Real Deal

THE REAL DEAL

Phoney connections
Sully and diminish us
And over time destroy
Our precious connection
With Soul and Spirit

While true connections
Nourish those involved
Allow Soul and Spirit
To come forward
And be recognised
