Unfinished Tongue




Speech out of need

To stop

A warning

Unfinished words



The Advancement of Metal

From Bronze
You were just pennies to me
Lincolns to flip head or tails
Civil wars to ponder
Slaves to molasses to rum
Despots all

in their self interests

With Steel at least there was Ginzu
Ninjas that could cut the moon in half
Bamboo forest crashing
Collapsing on top of foes
Feudal lords upholding honor and mercy
Or Renegades and thieves backstabbing
with tiny daggers

Wrought with Iron
Rot with irony
as pellets burst
from hand held devices
and Triggering
and Triggering
The common man
A call to arms
All men created equal
with Liberty
and Trivial pursuits

Digitize me
with your carbon next
Let me be who I want to be
Let me fight no more
Grant me the autonomy
To be me
in plasticity


Owned dazzle
Your own feathers gleam
Washing off skitters of water

To plume
Ornate down
of patterned embroidery

Lit ablaze with the light of day
Written with the rings of trees
A flutter mates a pray
to dance on top of half fallen
branches that

Such a brilliant display.

Spirit of the Mountain Prt. 6

Moon Dog

Out of nowhere
Does the scent heel
the turmoil
of escape
Does one grab
Does one brush
Does one smell


All possible brutalities
Nature’s might
Its right
to survive

Fear held
Enhancing blood

A rage of hormones
where one is really felt alive

On the brink



Flesh speaks out its growth


Heliotrope fixed!

Gravity’s pit
Forever carried
Self gutted on each climb
What do you aspire?

The repeated effort of
a unilateral segmented thrust

Single handedly shrugging obliquity.

The moist grasp on drying grass
A cilium momentum


Creature comforts


on the approaching darkness of the next shade.

Spirit of the Mountain Prt 5

Science say Hello

Science is not the answer. Science is the tool.

An ounce of prevention, The weight of a horizon

Poetry is the argument

The enticement
A way to see
A word to know

Because Science…

gets us another number
another addition
another goal
another step

Another moon

While with Poetry
Many Moons
One can climb and see
The combinations

of where to put another rule.
