Pine Box











Pine Box





You're wondering why I called/

Because this is all my right fault/

I might drawl/

Into the phone after the night finds prob-/

Lems with me, let's fight like all/

Those days we'd dive right off/

The platform, try light falls/

Ignite slight brawls/

And rise, life brought/

Us to this dry pine box/

You cant climb my balls/

To reach my coattails/

Bitch you know well/

Enough that the slow Hell/

You left me in is so pale/

Compared to the joke jail/

We both fell/

Into, oh, tell/

Me about the ghosts wail-/

Ing in the night that exposed trails/

Straight to the Devil I am, grow sails/

And drift away, but dont sell/

Me short as I post bail/

You'll eat crow, del-/

Icate little liar, my bones felt/

So frail/

As I awoke, held/

Prisoner in Death's own knell/

A poet quells/

His demons with prose, care-/

Ful words and a pen's stroke, delv-/

Ing deep into their hearts, alone paired/

With a light shone where/

Only they can go, stairs/

Creak ominous/

It seems all of this/

Was a dream, startling/

Me back into reality, but it keeps haunting me/

Please, talk to me/

But then leave, washing me/

Clean, artfully/

The deep waters we/

Had freeze, tarnishing/

The memories, all reced-/

Ing in a mean harvesting/

That we reaped cautiously/

Then the wind blew these promises/

Into the seas, charting these/

Weeping hearts that we/

Beat often with/

Cheap awful screech-/

Ing dropping me/

Off the map, I cling to each problem we/

Had, because I see solving these/

As the way back/

To the same track/

Where we walked in sync/

I'm the Beast, snarling, swing-/

Ing out and you're the Beauty, calming me/

But then we drifted/

Apart and seemed wilted/

Our roses need dripping/

Tears as water to be gifted/

Life, so please hear this/

Underneath prison/

Walls and seek infants/

We visual-/

Ized, our blessings, children/

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
