charm eyed stare down
honey I see you shrinking
did you know drunk men
aren’t always drinking?
no more vigor today
they’ve caged the lion
and buzzed his mane
You’ve trapped the noun you cast around
within that phantoms’ mouth
brainwash backwash time untold
pretty princes pose now in place of paragons
while the tongue usurps your voice
reciting prehistoric roles
well embrace your whole, Mother of The World
men, admit your broken heads to the Soul
reframe the nameless truth we’ve stained
and unwind, the passage of time
and the tightening mind grip
oh what do we know?
under the influence of the ego?
oh what don’t we know?
in the presence of our own wise counsel?
stained glass eyes can only perceive
so who has faith in hues unseen?
humankind was born to bleed
should sanguine blues define misery?
restless minds will never be free
light hearted life, take leave of Darwin’s Tree
you’ll never get another like this
