Sunset Above Clouds

 

A dream of another reality.

Yesterday,

I had hope.

Despair_ Devushka. Alone in Rain. Sea (or Flood)

 

We’re clutching at straws.

Every day the freaking same!

Hope springs eternal.

Mars Night Sky

 

Like an insect,

or rodent,

I’m happy to see you are gone.

So, I can forget, move on.

Self defense futile,

mutually assured decay,

cease, desist, delay…

Preacher’s preaching, TV.

You don’t understand the message

but you know it’s important,

the organ’s playing, emotive.

You put your hands on the TV screen

and believe.

Золотая пыль (Gold Dust)

 

At any given time,

I will carry 25 Kopeks

as, I know,

regardless of when and where,

it will be enough

to take me home.

My refuge,

sanity sanctuary,

enclave of peace

and enlightenment.

My hope.

Desperate,

stranded in desert,

my hands claw through the dead sands,

I try to move on,

try to see once again,

the oasis.

My hope.

Suzie Washington 2

 

The orphan smiles to herself,

thankful for her situation

(much as it often hurts).

She remembers life in a family:

dictates, demands, compromises,

pain, lies, perfidy.

Now,

she is relatively free.

Fetal Position 1

 

They call it a breakdown.

I disagree.

To me, it’s an awakening,

a step into enlightenment,

a realization of what is

and isn’t

important.

Yes, to an extent, I’ve shutdown,

compelled to resist the futile,

and, for them, that’s the rub,

I’m no longer playing by their rules.

Душа

 

Wearily,

I haul my ass to bed,

content, at least,

I am another step closer

to enlightenment.
