Donkey Foals

Alone

in the crowd,

I’m pushed aside by the seething mass of humanity.

It’s not a cohesive whole, this thing,

rather, it’s a collection of individuals

who care only about themselves,

their small clique,

and the donkeys they send monthly donations to “save”,

easing pain, some way.

Monika Seles, Yugoslavia

Relationship drains,

yet, we endure and maintain,

serve, baseline rally.

Ustala, Kafe

Tired, lost interest…

That thing which mattered so much,

become as if dust.

Perfidy_ Flowers & Knife

Enemies, and friends,

family members, near and dear,

*will* stab you in back.

audition-3

We all have a role,

expectations to fulfill.

For this we were born?

Girl Pisses Herself 2

Fundamentally, in this fallen world,

we like to see people…

humiliated.

This is our joy.

If we are fortunate,

we will sleep through it.

Perfidy_ Flowers & Knife

I’m breathing

and I’m living,

not exactly as expected,

or hoped,

perhaps.

Nonetheless…

Twists and turns of life,

of knives in back,

after all,

will screw with potential,

dreams,

and glasses half full.

People

and perfidy.

Do you really want to know

what the future holds?

Pissant (Formica rufa)

Pray about it!

Sure, OK,

but I resent my sacred prayers

being devoted to

pissants.

The Worship of Mammon

The vileness we find ourselves in

demands a reaction,

one way or another.

Everything is unfair

and the pain seem inescapable.

Treacherous solar winds radiate,

burning, searing,

bodies and minds.

People instinctively lie,

complicate,

and violate,

cloaking it in “progressive” vibes,

stroking egos and fatty tissue…

(In reality they don’t give a shit,

but they want to appear “legit”;

hollow scum, festering liberal cankers!)

If I could,

I would sleep like a child,

10, 12 hours,

and expect everything better

in morning rising.

(*As if!*)

For people to be genuine…

That is my dream.

Tolbachik Volcano, Kamchatka, 2012

The world is an amazing place,

full of self-centered assholes.

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!”

To me, it’s fundamental, the basis of society,

and peaceful coexistence;

to most, alas,

it seems, an optional extra,

in between forgotten Birthday cards

and flatulence.
