Beauty isn’t Beautiful

June 16, 2015



The most beautiful things

Ain’t pretty to behold

Beauty’s within and sings

Vanity license plates imbue
Belongings with dreams we want true

Vanishing Point Interruptus

Middle of nowhere

Nothing is ever broken

Enjoy perfection

My Reality

My Reality is so beautiful

I record because I’m dutiful

Critical Littering

April 1, 2015



Garbage Sonnet 2

 

My curiosity embellishes

All the detritus of modern living

Seeing waste & litter replenishes

My connection to this great world’s giving

 

Soberly I realize that life’s junk

Isn’t made for my edification

But In productions’ full caves I spelunk

I’m mesmerized by litter’s invention

 

Thank you god for these moments with garbage

Your detritus sings me a secret song

Though litter’s capitalism’s carnage

It’s also the charged tea leaves divining

 

The litter we stream behind us in space

Is the comet’s tail: our visible trace 

Crucify Winter

March 22, 2015



Beauty crucified

By the comfort we desire

So that Spring could come

Winter’s Filthy Finish

March 13, 2015

Sometime in April under some black crust

This winter’s last filthy snow’ll liquidate 

Spring’s flowers will obscure a world at rust

At snow’s death & decay we’ll celebrate

Embellishments

The world is annotated by people
Citizens scribble their commentary
In the narrow margins of survival
Since life has become a commissary

The bloody scribbles on the cell walls mark
People’s last mortal utterances made
Written by those who were kept in the dark
(Final silent material tirade)

The next time you see vandalism there
Whether tattoos, muscles or a car
Remember it’s graffiti of despair
Poor people writing their “probable cause”*

So, please watch the world with a scholar’s eye
Some, for this Krylon marginalia, died

Happy
