How meaningless so much of it is, was and will be.

You know it’s futile.

Yet, still you wish you’d had the courage, energy and stupidity to do things differently.

Who knows?

Manipulated, violated and compromised, you die

daily.

Bruised and beaten,

tonight you dream,

ethereal,

lost Eden.

I don’t understand.

I don’t want to understand.

I already understand too much,

such hurt.

… Confusion reigns.

Delirium aims.

Dazed, dizzy we fall.

Woman sleeping

 

In my dream,

he kissed me passionately,

told me I was beautiful.

He licked my neck and said:

“I wanna fuck your brains out!”

… And other terms of endearment,

such I dream.

There are clues,

breadcrumbs, let’s say,

hints of decay,

nonetheless, simply put, it worked,

until it didn’t,

to be precise, it worked until

people no longer believed.

… They wanted something different! …

As they say, be careful what you wish for.

(Such a true cliché!)

… Homage for Yugoslavia.

Whore.

You do what’s expected,

every step,

you pleasure their expectations.

You, Rotary Club Chairman,

1987.

Your traitor gave up our traitors.

In your hubris, you miss the irony.

You call it treason,

we call it reason.

Mass-media, mind games and control,

I can only be true to my own soul.

JAO Girl, Selah

 

Today’s righteous, heroic action,

tomorrow’s death sentence.

Alas.

Breathe.

Read.

Selah.

I need to sleep…

But my mind is racing,

full of injustices

swirling, contorting,

ugly perfidy,

enemies looming, sneering,

and I’m angry,

I want to fight.

Tormented and demented

in the middle of the night.

Life,

betrayed, it seems,

every step of the way.

Feeling so hard done by.

Beauty for ashes?

Where’s mine?

TV_ No Signal

 

“Daddy don’t watch that kind of TV no more.”

Free love,

free hate,

free life,

free death,

free misery, nothingness and joy.

Freedom imposes,

freedom gives and takes.

Freedom bites.
