I tell you to be careful, so that you yourself would not be mesmerized by such a thing and therefore be put into a trance, but that you would remember it is a tool, to be used by you.. and only you. She was referring to the encapsulated _______. The _______ within the stone was dead and so was he. I would think that with her magic she could have made it a living thing. I knew she could read my min...
d but still I concealed my emotions. I was grieved that she would remind me of him, and ask me to hold on to something unliving. I let the sadness burn behind my eyes only, it did not well up or spill down my face. My lips were tense so not to quiver. I also rejected the thought that with her powers she could have prevented all of this from happening in the first place. I criticized her, silently of course. She could have taken up the whole island, brought it to the sky. Behind her darkness broke out against the blue. Silhouettes of the ancestors rose and moved around like monsters. I felt sick and suddenly wanted to lie down. _______ took me and made a bed for me, she stroked my eyes and soon I was asleep.

I am not hiding from my name
but rather my name found me
sitting on the stone
white as snow

all things that I were
were generated in crystals
it was the type of thing that could melt down
and land into the water
somehow
between the spaces in the dirt
that looked like specks of shadow
spreckled around
and if they were pale
they'd be specks for birds and flowers

This is not me.
How did I get here?

Ah yes, remembrances...
another birthday,
another christmas,
another graduation,
another wedding.

But these are the rites of adulthood
and I've left my childhood behind.

I miss the young 'me' that used to be,
and all that, that might have been.

Propaganda

they entered them in
two at the same time
set them at their hights
and gave them two
different colored sticks
for battle
they had streamers
and were live on t.v.
smiling looking like a donkey
and another wierd animal
with a stiff leg.
They had a party
killed some folks
and did whatever they wanted.

I am trapped inside my face
by body's hugged as I erase
the pastel life behind me
I cry the tears of age
my slender mouth's a silent rage

poem I wrote for a drawing I saw ^

cataract'd by the monitors
blinking due to the eyes
more and more scratchy
do not up-root what is last of me
do not yank what I have left behind
my skin was on my lashes
shortly
behind
they

se-pa-rate
something stays behind.

my root had a deeper root

and there will still be hairs

I took Gretta out.
She aint no Christian.
No siree, she sweated up a storm
her combs falling all over the floor.

She bend down to pick it up
look like she knows
what she was doing too.

I told her watch it
with those man drinks
got her a bunch of water
sat her down,

hotter than
a swarm of maggots in July.
Some of them folks
act like alligators.

I am a mirror to myself
My eyes see the things I understand
Do not think
that this time space
is un-unique to that of history
it is not
as all things are not
the same in any regard
do not think also that
it is any different
for always there has been
a moment shared
between the multitude
They do not react simultaneously
but as ripples in a pond
and as steam that rises
and as fog collects
and as clouds that travel then to rain
when you return to touch me
no matter where you have been
no matter what you have seen
no matter how we are different
we are still the same

*

I am white
and have been influenced by blackness
and now I am gray in my brain
once you were red
but only on the outside
inside you were blue
and then you spilled into the grass
you dissappeared
leaving only a sticky residue
even now if you could be extracted
from the dirt
you would still be brown

I did need to appear the weaker.
I did have to submit,
though she was not bigger than me,
though she was not stronger and surely no match.
I would be put out on my ear if I were to harm her,
her intelligence, her vulnerable spot of existence,
to take her down from her throne.

Oh the bureaucracy
I cannot escape the pretending!

A trained up man
is a wise man,
so women: Be ye wise.

Treat the man
like a Gentleman
lest he be mild
for a Man is a Beast!

Look we not for
the little man
but the Good man.

She had several apples
each of these had worms and snakes
with degrees of pale skin
clashed as if in half
cold on the stone
distinct seperation

skinned like zebras
they took hold
with their bellies
to the concrete between the grass

they crawled up the branches
and swung from the trees
they had silk threads
they traveled in the wind
as the sperm of wilderness
one did not know
what they carried
but only
that they
survived in the apple.
