Immune To A Power Surge

IMG_1335

Immune to a power surge
I sit alone & quietly type
Not affected by technology
Refuse to be your modern gripe
I switched off my terrestrial radio
But I’ll still pound at these keys
I’m not cool or a trendy guy
I’m reserved, doing as I please
There’s never been an audience
Just a few genuine folks
Sharing myself sparingly
I’m better with these slow strokes
I’ll continue to conjure ideas
Preferring to use my typewriter
Nothing fancy; just a love of words
Old, but I can still pull an all nighter

I’m Not A Fan Of This World

I’m not a fan of this world
The treachery & expanding hate
The lies, corruption & pure evil
All deciding our collective fate
But I won’t cast my lots with them
I’d much rather go it alone
No one represents me but my own words
I reject their claims to the American throne

I Didn’t Mean To Get Too Personal

I didn’t mean to get too personal
I merely noticed your exposed slip
My thoughts took me to uncharted waters
Thinking of us – alone- a subtle skinny dip
An abandoned wedding gown crumpled
The satin too white against your lace
I didn’t know what I was supposed to feel
Though I could see the muted joy in your face
You kicked off your heels & removed your gloves
Walking too close you whispered ‘yes’ to my surprise
I loosened my tie before you took charge
I’ll never forget how you looked with your laughing eyes

I Don’t Want Airbrushed Perfection

I don’t want airbrushed perfection
I want to cherish flaws only I know
How you snort when I make you laugh
That special moan during a late night show
You’re the only one I’ll ever want
You, alone, are the only one I want to hold
Making all these sacrifices worth while
Lie back now, allow me to kiss your delicate folds

Glassy Eyed Vipers Stand In The Corner

Glassy eyed vipers stand in the corner
Memories of cool water and menthol cigarettes
Manual labor for a couple more summers
Then throw me with the rest of your vets
Counting the days until they are all gone
Cast off into an unknown unforgiving sea
Vacant and alone on a sunny day
The cold winter days at least give reason to be
Memories of forgotten love lost
Those years crash against my soul
Pictures and letters no more than ash
Not enough booze to fill this very hole

The Sunsets Seem To Last Longer

The sunsets seem to last longer

Before the darkness comes closing in

Walking alone, the beach seems haunted

Memories from before we allowed life to begin

I love the brilliant colors of Spring

Enjoying life in the sunshine I revere

Slowly the light fades, taking my joy

Night brings heavy thought & steps along the pier

Projected Projects Of Fools & Rejects

Projected projects of fools & rejects
Let it all flow from your heart & soul
Generations of towering acceptance
I heard your name in that rock & roll
Art making it okay to love again
Finding all the right ways to be free
Alone in your selfish dimension
Looking out over that swallowing sea
A chronicle of my words to save
I never questioned if anyone wanted
Though my ego is often wrong
A real perspective of posterity will remain haunted
