Conspiring Distance

Cindy Baker:

Excellent Poem- I absolutely Love this guy ;-)

I am the fallen.

The runaway son, born and reborn through transpiring muck.
Crossing; the wide distances, currency. A dissonance
commanding recognition.

This does not go easy on anyone persuaded that they
themselves are listening.
Fanatics.

I am an assassin familiar; wanting to break your memory
of the balance of secrets.
The ransom unpaid by forged documents.

Let alone sheaves of thought stacked against the
moonlight of your staring heart.

honey
the night
i die
i’m gonna sit
on the edge
of a star
with my legs
dangling down
into the night sky
and then
with my shoes off
i’m gonna dip
my toes
into the milky way
and send waves
of star-dust
cascading
into every lover’s heart
and
that’s
just for a start

these skies

some
devour
the flesh
of the dead
others
pursue
the weak
feasting on
fears
more than
flesh
and
enjoying
each moment
of panic
in their eyes
like
humans
ruling over
the poor
who stand
at the gates
of death

Do You Love Poetry?

Kate HarringtonDo You Love Poetry?
Kate Harrington, 1831-1917

Do you love poetry? When o’er your spirit
Shadows of grief and of care slowly steal,
Do the low whispers which some souls inherit
Beautiful thoughts to your fancy reveal?
Oh ! if this be so, though sometimes earth-weary,
Life is not always unchangingly real,
Like to a desert, all lonely and dreary,
Having no gleams of the lovely Ideal.

If you love poetry, sorrow and sadness,
Mountains of cares and afflictions may throng,
Yet will your spirit leap up in her gladness
When strains burst forth from the fountain of song.
For there is something within us adoring, —
Something no mortal has ever defined,
Raising us upward whene’er we are poring
Over these mystical dreams of the mind.

[From Centennial and Other Poems (Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott & Co., 1876).]

Whatever Jesus, Buddha, Harry Krishna taught requires no belief. It just is. Like life after death – who could convince you of that. You’d be better off wondering how demented it is to push belief which needs a personal inner experience on anyone.

These days I usually think of religion as the ultimate Ponzi scheme, the sick twist to what can be found and discovered by anyone to gather impetus and delight in living. I don’t call sharing it with others religion.
But the Ponzis – you tell someone, and they tell someone, and they tell someone who kills them because they’re Islamic. Oops. Whomever said words are cheap was making a cheap quote at the expense of sense. Have some people chanting You’re an asshole, and then see if they feel words are cheap.
The Ponzis are braggarts. Proud.

A Postcard From Nostagiaville

Originally posted on dark ecologies:

Home’s just a state of mind.
One needs no place at all.
Sometimes I look for it
around the bend, knowing well
it’s not there; never was
in the plot of things, just an artifact
hiding up in someone’s attic closet:
a shoddy canvas rotting in the corner,
or a fantasy postcard sent from paradise.

I’ve come home to her
more times than count,
but it’s always the same
a quick boot back out.
Like I give a dam – not,
it’s just a place to rest my leery ass.

Some say it’s a metaphysical
propositional blast of the past, a fake
destination no one ever did believe
existed, nor thought possible or reliable
for justificatory redress of such crimes
as kin will want to do upon each other.

Pines, magnolias, sweet berry pies –
the myth of home we all know so well;
a pipe dream for every sucker born,
a sort of dime…
