the last sin
  pale ashen sky
a bleary eye
clouds of recurring screams...
i am a zoo
  an octopus leviathan
tentacles into an ocean
of unformed emotions...
syphilis and love  
  syphilitic pall
stifles the clear blue
i contort...
shell and pearl
  amidst highs and lows
in life's ocean flows
a shell peony-mouthed...
i am an unmarried mother
  fed on stings
of barbed milk morality
my child-plankton...
the lovers
  cell upon cell
bridge of their union
hung on the pillars...
  ogre of age
and time cavil
at a warm picture...
the young today
  innocence thaws
at the altar
of ambition...

Other lives & I 

In other lives
-a tell all mirror-
And recreate yours
With magic seeds
Of voyeurism and empathy
Life like a poem
Is work in progress
Waiting to be forever
Tenuous clouds dot
Fragile mindscapes
Riotous robust chaos
Makes picture-perfect cameos
Fingers move haphazardly
On wireless keyboards
A dabbler’s dilemma?
Unscramble your time
Make peace with the plan
Of a rambunctious universe
Spread the shine
Leaked out of lonely winters
-each mutiny is a story-

You are not alone, my friend.
