#1608 - life

 




1608

5.147

26.v.24

life

 

even well

it ends badly

 

a sky does its dark

 

try as we may

all for even the best

 

here we are then not

it’s severally so

 

you’d have to had been there

 

had to be otherworldly to tell

the package bust open

seed spread

 

say golden for our sun

 

the ink still pouring out of a night

all ache until

it’s only here

too late

 

big deal for not long

even the life of a star

 

only a body sees us out

 

it transpired life on other worlds

is more likely purple than green

 

this was in my feed

 

pick up the trail to leave off

the church wrings out is knell 

esperanta serio #998 - ne tuŝu mian morton




 

998

ne tuŝu mian morton

 

ĝi estas bela afero

 

suno enprofundigita en herbo for

 

mi laboris pro ĉi tio

ĉiujn miajn tagojn

 

novaĵo pasas super mi

devas atendi ĝis mankas tempo

 

kuŝi kun la fakto

kaj denove luktu

 

bonvolu ne tuŝi mian morton

ankoraŭ ne

 

 







 

don’t touch my death

 

it is a beautiful thing

 

sun sunk in grass gone

 

I’ve been working on this

all my days

 

sun sunk in grass gone

 

news passes over me

must bide till there’s no time

 

lie down with the fact

and wrestle again

 

please don’t touch my death

not yet


#1607 - looking out of a word

 



1607

5.146

25.v.24

looking out of a word

 

o world

whom nobody owns

or made

 

turn it on the tongue

 

the picture of sunshine

 

head dark of glass

 

survey the city of the eye

take turns

 

far out of intention

 

how differently the day sits now

 

inside the blaze a star

 

inside the tree

this climbing thicket

for a perch

and sing

 

now I see what

they mean

esperanta serio #997 - dormo estas la katastrofo


 

997

dormo estas la katastrofo

 

malfermu fenestron

enlasu la kvieton

 

kun la tempo kaj kun sorto

ni renkontas la aliajn de la sonĝo

 

mi havis linion kaj perdis ĝin

fajroj ankoraŭ venontaj

 

ĵus komenciĝas nun

 

 




 

 

 

 

sleep is the catastrophe

 

open a window

let the stillness in

 

over time and with luck

we meet the others of the dream

 

I had a line and lost it

fires yet to come

 

just getting started now

#1606 - walk into the poem




1606

5.145

24.v.24

walk into the poem

 

friends are all there

 

dark before the mulberry moon

last lavender of sky

 

had the rainbow

had the mirror

had the pocket of smoke

 

it’s winter

we’re the fire

                                                                                                   

meet the memory of things

just where it comes to rest

 

it was the tongue run off with the words

 

so I rode on

I drove them before

we were all on foot

 

I was healing to the light time bent

I have decided to make my own weather

 

Day 4 – took the pills

made it Thursday

pulled up my socks to go

 

I could hear the far world

see through screens of sky

 

long love in the ice hut

come down by rope ladder

 

later I would burst out of the shell

a glut of glint

 

victim of own sunshine

 

I think it was a wake up call

 

come to the wall

be the vine

 

creek

tangle

clamber

 

walk these five days into the poem

see how everything has changed









esperanta serio #996 - trezormapo de mia kapo interne


 


996

trezormapo de mia kapo interne

 

la sekreto estis ebria, en kanto

 

 

bildo klinita por diveni

 

sufiĉe da homamaso ĉi tie

ĉiuj senvortaj samtempe

 

malnovaj pecetoj da metalo

tabuloj tro bonaj por bruligi

kaj grandaj aferoj

kion fari?

 

ie la vojo

bruetis preter

kaj mi perdis ĝin

 

kapturno kaj pli

 

kompatu iun alian memon

ĉu vi ne povas?

 

esti en la muziko

kaj for

 

 






 

a treasure map of my head inside

 

the secret was drunk, in a song

 

 

image bent to guess

 

quite a crowd here

all speechless at once

 

old bits of tin

planks too good to burn

and big stuff

what to do?

 

somewhere the road

rattled past

and I lost it

 

past dizzy

 

pity some other self

can’t you?

 

to be in the music

and gone

#1605 - curse for scammers


 

1605

5.144

23.v.24

curse for scammers

 

may you be exposed

 

may you be impersonated by something worse

 

may the mirror of dark intention

swallow you whole

 

may you be the victim of your own scam

may you fall for the cruellest trick

 

may the teeth of your keyboard

rattle, fall out

and then the teeth in your head

 

may your mouse tear off like a demon

but not before delivering high voltage shocks

 

may your victims pursue you with personal curses

 

may all your ill gotten turn to turd

may you be made to polish it too

and swallow

 

may you choke on your lies

 

may you be the biggest sucker of all

 

may you wake in a bed full of snakes

more venomous than you

 

may all your accounts be drained at once

 

and the moment you find out

 

may your screen flicker dead

 

may superstition make you sure that worse is coming  

 

may the police break down your door

taser you, pepper spray too

cop a truncheon

 

may you catch fire, pants up

be your own auto da fé

 

may hell be real and the fire go on

burn fucker! is what I mean

 

may you be laid naked on the frozen mountain at birth

 

may you never shit again

may you have never been born
