Muse





I'm back home/
So I try to act whole/
When the actual/
Facts throw/
Me for a loop, I'm damned, ghost-/
Ed by the past, so/
I ask jov-/
Ial people what they have more/
Of than me, that smoke/
Has to point to a fire, a vast snow/
Fall of ash coats/
My hands, soaked/
In the blood of my kin, I'm casual/
And that broke/
Me wide awake/
I can take/
The silence, strained/
Relationships and the time away/
As the straw that finally breaks/
The camel's back, the tidal wave/
I was splayed/
Out, righteous may-/
Be, but try to face/
This life I stake/
Like a raise/
At the poker table with every line I gave/
Breath to on this rhyming page/
No longer that minor slave/
That writhes in vain/
To fight, escape/
From this icy plain/
Of fiery pain/
But it's fine, I'll stay/
Because it's your lies I've slain/
Not with violent wag-/
Ing wars but because I would rise and pray/
For you, and will until my dying day/
So in solitude/
I walk anew/
Not entombed/
In parlor rooms/
With bars and booze/
But free to cross the dunes/
With nothing but my Cross and two/
Fists, whether to box and bruise/
Or sit in a shop or booth/
Drinking coffee smooth/
And offer truth/
Through this poetry, my constant muse/

Frostbite

I often feel apart from the world. I enjoy it, partake in it, and have connections within its borders, but I am not of it. Truth is that I can't relate to the vast majority of people. Like seeing a flop at a poker table, Ive just become intimately attuned with a variety of social situations and the nuances they require. Admittedly, and indeed surprisingly to some to whom I never waste my breath, I tend to be very commanding and articulate in conversation. I can converse on a variety of topics with nimble comfort, and set the focus of my attention at ease rather quickly. Im particularly adept at engaging strangers in conversation, breaking them from their reveries, then gleaning what I need from them. On a whole Im very Machiavellian, and I harbor no shame about this side of my nature. The world turned its back on me years ago, so I have no qualms about using its denizens for my own gain when they've proven themselves sufficiently immoral and ill-mannered. From the perspective
