Self Portraits

Dialogue

Borne by his blues and trapped by my sorrow,

I watch him drown out the faith,

Fumbling with life, death, and the worlds inside of me...

Dealer's Bliss

The gambler is blinded by his greed,

Muted by the battle of risk and luck,

Forced to surrender to the will of the table...

Vanilla Rain

As I stand above the the lemon scented waters,

The dock lowers my shadow gently into the morning,

And vanilla rain descends over distant forests...

Misty Wind

Threads of water march boldly out of an alpine riverbed,

Caressing slick rocks as they pass down in a swift rush,

Creating a misty wind that blows out at the man beyond...

Odessey

Arms arise from the murky depths,

On account of an unspoken curse,

Salvation of the fittest...

The Gunfighter

He takes to the waters under the cover of darkness,

Soon illuminated by an immaculate array of lights,

Beaming through his ghostly intentions...

The Butler

Yesterday was the first I've taken off in years

I had to visit Teresa

But when I returned

I remembered why I'd never left before

Things go wrong around here when I'm gone

The walls get lonely when they're abandoned

Then I have to deal with a different sort of cleaning

Spotlit spiders, bloodied stairs appear

If only wires live here, who's to blame

And where are the spots leading to?

The better question seems not to be who's done this

In an empty house

But who's to be killed

Me?

White Fire

I sit mesmerized by the vastness of the ocean,

Branded by the white fire of the moon,

Two old friends whose relationship I struggle to contemplate...

Me & the Mountain

14.2 self portrait.jpg

My throne sits atop Black Mountain,

Supporting my headspace and homeland,

As nature always does...
