MAKE IT SLOW

August 26, 2009  :: 0 comments

The pace quickening,
spreading meltdown

city, town, hut,
lowering tired heads under the weight,

pulling the shade down
on the vibrating window,

pretend not to see
buckling landscapes,

deliver me
into your realm,

seconds ticking,
swelling to burst,

unbutton your blouse
humming your song,

make it slow…

RIOT

February 24, 2009  :: 0 comments

Signed ourselves away,
pulverized into debt.

Unrealistic in our outlook,
unasked questions and means.

On our way to the grave,
faithless in our doom.

Flames in the dark,
a few moments to reflect.

Come and comfort me,
forsaken we kiss.

Never wanted to
win a war.

Reinvigorated
by your tears.

Chewing on a growing rage,
I can’t change my mind.

THE FALL

We are
the wonder of the world.

Enamored
with freedom.

Your repressive power
will fall this night.

MAKING ROOM

Stars flickering
so close to touch…

Fiery buildings falling
to the glowing ground,
making room
for a new city of hope.
