Reason

Reason

Propose a toast to valor

welcome marauders of reason,

the condescending scholar,

voices of treason.

Three & a half cheers to freedom-

Shameless praises to the red.

Damn you who see them,

and you, who wish they were dead.

Wave our flag high & free.

Black list our leader.

This country is of thee

& you be the bottom feeder.

You watched a documentary.

You earned tour days.

Convinced them this wasn’t meant for me-

Those are your ways.

Spread steadfast cunning & hate-

Chaos is of the mind

Tranquility you debate.

You’re just wasting time.

Drown in your breath.

Seek knowledge in the pitch.

Wear white to your death-

All banging all bark.

You to I, them to we.

Us to that, this you see?

Of course you don’t understand, you refuse to know.

Why pick clarity over a hard way to go?

Dream

Dream

 

I’ve been having euphoric dreams of bubbly clear ponds an d lush fields of green

and I saw a pretty boy singing with a mandolin-

he was sharing a song with a ripe colorful smuggish grin

 

when I walked and set foot into the pond I noticed dozens of shimmering fish,

casting light like mother of pearl and so I made a wish

 

I’d tell you what it was but that would defeat the purpose so…

I’ve locked this dream away in my closet and made a friend of the beau

 

I’ve made it my home I return to every night

to wash away the burden of my life of black and white

Insomnia

Insomnia

 

I slept with my phone in pocket

expecting a buzz or a toll

I lay half-woke with knowledge

and hope that you may

reach out to me even under circumstance

so confined…

maybe I slept with my phone in my pocket nor for reason

nor for rhyme

 

I lay with worry heavy head

thinking you’d be wondering

thinking you’d care

I slept with my phone in my pocket

while you slept without a care

 

maybe I’m weak

maybe for you I fall

but someday ill be fast asleep

without a wish that you’d call
