EVEN GOES THE KNIFE

PRECISE CUTS

PEEL THE BLONDE WOOD

THE GRAIN SPREADS

IN A FAN OF LINES

REACHING INTO A WAVE

THAT BRINGS HOPE

EVEN CERTAINTY

WATCHING FROM THE SHORE

HANDS OF A PROVIDER

SURE CERTAIN QUICK

A BLOOD DROP

STAINS THE SEAM

AND DARKENS

LIKE A LAZY SUNSET.

A BLOOD DROP STAINS THE SEAM

THE BUMPS GET WORSE

FORGET DIGNITY

THEY ONLY KNOW PAIN

AND CELEBRATION OF FAILURE

THEY DANCE THEIR HATE

FOR THE UPBEAT CROWD

AND DISDAIN THE NEUTRALS

TOO LAZY TO TAKE A STAND

ENJOY YOUR STUBBORNNESS

IT MAY BE YOUR ONLY TRUTH.

THE BUMPS GET WORSE

If I Was Still Alive

           Don’t even think about life much anymore. But if I was still alive, I’d have a damned fine day despite the rain, despite the depression, think of something you like doing and do it! Oh yes, you think you should sit around and mope, huh? No. Look, don’t wait for the peak moments. Create them. Now that I’m dead I can see all this. Folks wait too long, they go sour on themselves. I sang the blues too long, wasting sadness on myself.

Just for example, I used to hate bad weather. Say it’s a cold, damp day. You can build a fire and read your favorite book…or hey, start the day with a cold beer! Oh that’s a shocker in Peoria. Maybe there’s music or maybe you wanna lie in bed late on a Sunday, covers up to your nose. Maybe a long…

LAST NIGHT: CHAOS DROPPED BY

AND OVERSTAYED THEIR WELCOME,

WHAT WITH THE FIST FIGHTS

AND GENERAL DESTRUCTION,

THE SPLINTERS IN OUR FEET

RAW KNUCKLES DRAGGIN’ THE FLOOR,

MOANING & CARRYING ON,

TELL US SORRY TALES

OF FRIENDS GONE BAD.

WHICH BEGS THE QUESTION

OH LORD OF SANITY & CLARITY–

THAT BARBARIAN HORDE

OF FAST DANCING PEANUT STOMPING–

SAVE IN THE GRAND SCHEME

OF EVOLUTIONARY PURPOSES

BUT THE TESTING OF PATIENCE OF

THAT QUESTIONABLE VIRTUE

OF THE LAZY MAN’S CROOKED EMBRACE

OF ANGER MADNESS.

CRAZY ENERGY EXPLODES

FAR ABOVE THE SEA

STEADY ON YOUR FEET

THE FALL INTO THE PIT

SOON,

ALL IS REGRETS.

OLD MUD

DROP THREAT BOMBS–

SHATTER OUR EARS

GROUND TO DUST

WAR END ALL WAR ESCAPES–

BULLSHIT–

THE NIGHTMARE

PRAY FOR PEACE:

WILD MAN WITHOUT HOPE.

BE STILL–

BELLS ARE RINGING

WITH HORROR FACED PRAYERS.

MONEY WON’T SAVE US.

DARKNESS BATTLES LIGHT.

MADNESS RUNS WILD WITH KRAZY CLOWNS

GIVE IT A LABEL–

WHATTAYA SAY?

BROADBACK

WEAK MIND

MUTTERING S.O.B

FELLED BY A TREE

DEAD DROP

NEVER KNEW WHAT…?

SUN ROSE NEXT DAY

LIFE DRAGGED ON–

FAMILIES FOUGHT

AND MARRIED LIKE RABBITS

NERVOUS PINK EYES

TWITCHING NOSES

STANDING ON HIND FEET

LIKE PRARIE ANT SENTRIES–

LONG FORGOTTEN

FADEOUT!

LIKE PRAIRIE ANT SENTRIES

PAIN SPEAKS TO SO MANY

I CANNOT ENJOY PAIN

GENUINE TRUTH

ALL IS SUFFERING

THE HEAVY CLOWN IS RIGHT:

JUST A STINKER,

A BIG BABY HUEY:

FEED ME, HE WHINES,

HANDS OUTSTRETCHED…

HEAVY BISON BREATH…

HEART LIKE A STONE…

ONCE AND A WHILE,

I FORGET MYSELF

AND CLOWNING BEHIND THE MASK

I SEE MY TRUE SELF

AND DISAPPEAR AS A CLOUD

AND GET LIFE RIGHT

AND NOTHING FEARFUL MATTERS…

THEN WE ARE FREED FROM FEAR & PAIN.

SEEING MY TRUE SELF:
THE CLOWN
