Lawless Vagrant













Lawless Vagrant




When my palms are aching/
And I'm not engaging/
In constant dating/
Or obnoxious claims these/
Conversations/
Come back and walk away these/
Qualms I've taken/
With botched arrangements/
Topics ranging/
From modern day scenes/
Of postures aimed at/
Chronic daydreams/
I'm lost and dazed in/
My moss and mangy/
Swamps and lazy/
Rivers that want to phase me/
But I'm not the angry/
Boxer they see/
And though the monsters may seem/
Close, they're false and hazy/
Taught to lay these/
Rhymes down as a toddler chasing/
Books and landing/
In every nook and cranny/
During lulls and napping/
On the tops of spacy/
Shelves, an honest ranking/
Of subjects, objects ranging/
From common angles/
To far gone fables/
A call to make a/
World, inner but ostentatious/
This artist's latent/
Talent is carved from patience/
Armed with pain and/
Using blood for karmic paint with/
Armor made/
From far off places/
Call it great but/
Know the martyr hates his/
Ponderous fate with/
Ardor chained in/
With bartered slavery/
Are we gravely/
Turning towards the carnage waiting/
Dark and racing/
Just mark the days these/
Honored baseless/
Fools thought the main thing/
I knew was to march in cadence/
Locked in cages/
Slots and makeshift/
Operations/
Lots of anguish/
And complications/
Dropped the safety/
Until the call of mayhem/
Became my prompted savior/
I forgot the safe words/
Those were abolished later/
Y'all dont crane your/
Necks, I'm back, calm and nailing/
The monastery/
To their admonished papers/
Stop you made your/
Point, I'm almost banging/
On the door, bottled rage is/
Being launched and aimed at/
The doctor's paid nurse/
So don't lob the way to/
The future at me then confiscate it/
Because I'm not the same kid/
I was, no longer gazing/
At the stars with basic/
Visions, my partners' ancient/
And perfect, and you're flawed and shameless/
But far from blameless/
If we've fought I'm tracing/
It back, to alter pavement/
I'll claw, serrate this/
World, its mine, I'll mark and change it/
And if I'm not mistaken/
Dont talk with greatness/
Because this lawless vagrant/
Has seen inside your supposed knowledge basin/
And balked with nascent/
Condensation/
Gawking crazy/
Because I can oddly say that/
It was always vacant/
Moderation/
Is the chalk erasing/
The song I'm able/
To write with cause and blatant/
Disregard for maintenance/
On the mainstream/
Populations/
Postulation/
Is all forsaken/
When demolished ailing/
People are lobbed in danger/
The lobby wages/
That the Truth is all the rage in/
The minds of the intelligent/
And relevant/
But reverence/
Is still caught and traded/
In the awful name of/
Their promised maiden/

4 Reasons Why I'll Be A Vagabond In 2 Years

4 Reasons Why I'll Be A Vagabond In 2 Years As my parole date looms and I prepare to muster out of the service that's cradled me the entirety of my adult life, I face the future with an uneasy trepidation coupled with my characteristic combative nature. I've heard every excuse, tempting me with bonuses and transparent promises regarding where I could live next, to tales of woe and agonizing regret, detailing the life of a miscreant that fleed from the Navy, expecting to flourish in the free world, no longer bound by the constraints of military life. Eager and cherry, they're invariably met with a crippling reality, sprinting head first into a shallow pool of filthy water barely concealing jagged, dangerous rocks and craters. I'll take my chances as I retake the reins of my life, though, even this far out, I know that my path will hardly be traditional, and will probably offend some traditionally and civically min

Outrunning The Reaper

Outrunning The Reaper The concept of aging intimidates me.  I wont say it scares me, because I feel that I've done the very best I can at retarding, delaying, and combatting it.  My training, which in the past prioritized hypertrophy and strength, misapplied in a hilariously misinformed fashion, has altered severely.  When I first got to Hawaii in 2017, I experimented with the idea of adopting EMOM (Every Minute On the Minute) training, a methodology I'd learned from studying Crossfit.  At that point I was doing 5 sets of Freestanding Handstand Pushups a day, with each set's repetitions decreasing incrimentally, following the Recon Ron Pullup Program.  It's available for free online, and a simple Google Image search will allow one to locate the entire workout.  I would sometimes do it twice a day, and before I stopped it, I was doing around 77 Handstand Pushups a session.  Back then I fancied myself a badass for completing such a "large" amount of volume in 1

Candlelight

Candlelight I've often been asked why I haven't written a novel yet, or even a short story on its own, let alone a collection of them.  While I've written enough poetry to fill several reams of factory fresh printer paper, and my prose on this very site could be collected, condensed, and categorized into an efficient little e-book, I simply cant find the motivation to write something that lengthy.  Stephen King once said in an interview that the secret to his prolific literary output was to, simply, write.  He sits at his desk every morning, puts his hands on his keyboard, and let's his fingers dance and twirl until 2000 words are peering back at him from the soft glow of his monitor.  I certainly admire such ardent consistency, and do actually apply it in my private writing, namely my journaling. But when books to be sold for mass consumption and profit are called into question, I suffer the inevitable bout of writer's block that eventually plagues us all so stubbo
