Like most Scandinavians we have a small family yacht and our parents raised us to being able to sail it. It's about thirty metres long, and has a large mast as well as a very...
It's All Mete
(for Ruth, with love)
when I have fed the tree
and the shadow of my gene
lurks under the apple skin,
and think how I am buried here,
and buried again...
Coniatore (A Pound of Flesh)
I've sung women on two continents,
but it's all meat,
and so I'll sing of the wind.
Hair, breasts, hips, and the year flies,
hanging upon the...
The Dark Design
the air is thick tonight, the air is tense,
the light is ringed in fog, each sigh a cough,
down deep, it seeps into this body's trough,
where neither breath nor...
I write so-called poems
when the nights are long--
sing the praises of false ladies--
through the dark hours
I push words out of place.
thin lips, gray eyes, blonde hair...
In The Cave of The Scarlet Spade Tail Dragon
Cool steely shards,
Pieces of a sword blade,
Thin of razor edge
Lay scattered, broken
As parts of a weapon...
Why i'm cold?
They ask me why I'm so cold so bloodless thinking they know something about me .. They know nothing but the smiles and the laugh i fake for them .. They ask me why...
When we were boys, in the constant
rattle and noise of Lakeside Park,
we squandered on a lark ten times the money
we made from tourists, spent our summer days...
I've brought your sadness in close on my own
and nurtured it until the two were one
I've seen this love between us overgrown
with something else quite hidden from the sun...
My heart on EP
My heart has felt many emotions in such little time
I'll try to put it in a poem and see if it will rhyme.
Looking for attention is what I first came to seek
Wings of Shadow
Night falls as crickets sing.
Dark would be the night,
A time for an evening flight
As the late day shadows cling
A dark out spread shadow flies
As the sun turns...
I love. You love.
We all know what love does.
We know what it was.
But it's all a fuzz.
The meet. The greet.
The part where we secretly worship at each others' feet.
We act like...
Recent Developments in the Grand Scheme
the crooked fingers of Keele Street
wind into Weston Road,
just above the Junction,
at the slaughter houses on St. Clair.
I was really into it a couple months ago. I might make some new material again. I just think it's hard sometimes as I'm not very creative
I said this to one at a point in my life, I ask that JESUS guide this person in the right direction, for we can only learn to live for and love one another, but only through the...
the curve of her lip
mixes with the line of her brow
like winter snow
a drift across the
road and over the cornfield
curves like her round hip
trace of enamel
Watching Rome Burn
I think I've been a little bit type-cast
as the long-suffering antihero
one foot in the door of a gilded cage
keeping your bright plumage from turning brown...
We hide some truths,
Not because they are scary;
but because the reaction might be weary.
We face society,
With the frustrations of anxiety.
To determine the speculation of what...
Down a Wooded Path
When sun is shining bright
And the sky is blue and clear,
Free of any kinds of clouds,
We should go outside for a walk
Out where to, you may ask?
Well,out to the...

Hitler, you were the first mad man,
You overthrew the German leadership with a plan you squirted on the can,
Yes, you're worse than the Taliban,--
Your motives are selfish and...
All of the times when everything is wrong
And you're feeling like
There's no use going on
You can't give it up
I hope you work it out and carry on
Side by side,
With you till the...
I've never killed myself over a girl before. I mean yeah, sigh and laugh at the irony I squeezed in there. She doesn't have any reason to indirectly kill me.. And I'm really hoping...
My insides clench together
The sob tears through my throat
I reach out to anyone
But They don't see my doubt
I can't live with this
The pain travels from my heart...
Stars of Diamond and Pearl
Into the night sky
Up beyond the clouds
Look right above you
And look up really high
Fairies,heralds of light
Of every shining hue
With gentle moth like...
and like the sea,
Filled with wonders
Wonder this, wonder that
and like the sea
I was awestruck
Amazed this, amazed that
And like the sea,
You were beautiful
Freedom of Form
I seek out freedom here, within tight form,
fight meaning, meaning to set right the flow
of words, reassemble shards in the glow
of white moon and stars, shed...

above an open fire
sinews tough as bone
into dead flesh
with skull removed
looking up he smiles...
The Present Cage
the long push and grind of rock against rock,
the shifting of mountainsides, the deep rage
beneath the surface, having done with talk,
rushes to erupt as time...

rugged land of rock, cradled between seas
in a shock of snow, rivers burn like ice
down through the valleys where shadows suffice
to feed the soil, force oil from fallen...

For You 12.13.14
I guess I’m an interesting case, I’m never too sure what to say. I speak things that should be kept in, and I keep in things that should be spoken. I...
I left the town where the chestnuts hang
and fall, a million tiny maces,
from trees of many hands, five-fingered
along the avenues. in the migrant season
danger for the man who plays with fire,
crosses angels, plays as children play,
weeping from the flames of his desire,
knowing not of love but love entire,
I spend my time with voices of 'reason',
Which makes it harder to rocket ship away,
as they say I have no fuel.
No mutual, moral handshake or arm to guard you from...

summer rain, kid caught on a bicycle,
tires rip the surface of the wet pavement;
as I watch from the tenth floor balcony
it would be nice to say I'm really...
I think we've all been at this point in our lives at one point or another. Whether it's now or in the past. However, for me, this is how I feel every single day when I go to bed...

I've gone to bed with a *****
this accumulation, this build-up of details,
emptied like a trash-can at my feet, this defeat
in the face of larger law; you, who would unseat
the primacy of what is, it...
