The houselights dim to thunderous applause. We take position as the last strains of generic techno echo through the hall. On cue, we attack the stage like birds of prey, a power pop blitzkrieg in G Major. The audience stumbles as wave after wave of raw emotion slams them to the floor. They rise, slackjawed and spent, arms outstretched, begging for just one more.

freeze-frame this busy day
pause to consider
blood that was spilled for me
caught up in the rat race
priorities scattered to and fro
mired down by this flesh
though my spirit cries for more
forever freed from this mess
six hours one Friday



4-3-10

snatched away from dreamland
by this infernal alarm
beep-beep-beeping
Saturday morning buzz-kill
unwelcome invasion
of a perfect four day weekend

unlock the door and let in the heat
stand aside as they bum rush the door
blue-haired meanies in dimestore dresses
scavenging shelves of secondhand kick-knacks
picking apart the faded boxes
donated from a dead aunt's attic



4-5-10

knocked back
a verbal napalm strike
fourteen different voices
all yelling at once
I turn a deaf ear
counting the pennies in my drawer
oblivious to the chaos
I close my eyes
counting the minutes 'til closing time
and a nice cold beer




I'm not real happy with either of these right now...although I think there may be something in them. Both are inspired by my current job as the manager of a re-sell store.

four years old
filled with wonder
pouring make-believe tea
lunch time talks with Daddy
discussing the depth of the ocean
and whether or not puppies go to heaven

I look into his eyes
and see myself staring back.
His motions and mannerisms
mimicking a long-lost me.
Thirteen going on thirty
hair disheveled, eyes aglow
seeing the world in a brand new way.
I watch from afar, terrified
trying to recall that magic
I know I felt it too.
I fling my prayers towards heaven
and leave him in the hands
of the One who sent him my way



This one is still in progress.

little big man
eyes sucking in
everything around
gears grinding
motors revving
neurons firing
at twice the speed of sound

We're back for another try. I failed miserably last year but plan to give it the old college try.

One pain, from my best friend's pride.
One pain, for the times we fight.
One pain, gotta stay alive.
Yes yes ya'll, I will survive.
One pain, for the city streets.
One pain, for the hip hop beats.
One pain, oh I do believe.
One pain, is all we need.



It's a little odd...oh well.

so... does that poem have to do with the pain of being a geezer or something?
