Space Junk

Disparate trash, rumor, misinformation,

mind confused,

too much circulating, bombarding, affecting gravitational pulls.

Messed up Earth, addled brains,

human urge to destroy continues in space.

Boxing Gloves

Mixed feelings, confusion,

nothing fits properly,

this life we find ourselves in:

Constricting, yet empty,

full of demands,

but always something lacking,

stupid things we pursue,

striving and seeking,

but never finding real meaning,

what we think we need.

Dazed, we continue,

jarringly, we end,

hitting the deck,

unfitting friend.

Flower Blows, Hope_

When you’re hurting, other people’s suffering isn’t necessarily a priority.

Yet, you understand the pain.

Giving time and money is a luxury, for many,

but compassion, good vibes,

if it helps, I can do.

Ipso facto, best wishes for the world and its people:

drifting gently in the wind.

Okno_ Sunshine

Dark day,

seeing my past and future fade away,

too much sunshine, too much glass,

hope disappears in brightness’ glare.

People betray, voices rip and stab,

darkness consumes,

I slip away.

Migren, Headache, Tee, Utro

Sometimes, the more I think,

the less it makes sense,

the more it hurts,

the more impossible “success” seems,

the less everything apparently means.

Now is one such time,

alas, one amongst many.

… Agony, intelligence, angst.

Savitsky_ Monk, 1897

Even in the best of times,

he knew *that* wasn’t him,

and these *are not* the best of times,

that is certain.

He broods, he frowns,

wryly then he smiles,

an honest, if flawed, man.

Interrogation Of the Renegade_ V Vereshchagin, 1901

“Speak freely,” he said,

as if it was an option.

Truth versus freedom.

SpaceX Dragon Crew Demo-2_ DT & Pence 2

A winning blend, they believe,

of capitalism, show business,

and chest-thumping nationalism.

This is the stuff of democracy!

(aka electoral victory)

Suddenly self-reliant, apparently;

oozing hubris, the child leaves.

Goodbye, no need to thank strange other,

former fellow traveler.

“This day is history!” the child sneeringly crows.

In the sense that it is past, yes,

otherwise, no.

Sornyaki

It’s wonderful, I guess,

that she gets a feeling of fulfillment from *that*,

I, alas, don’t.

Yet, I am judged by her standard, her mores.

While I don’t cast any stones, I stand condemned.

Is this fair?

TASS, Moskva, 1978

People demand the job be done ASAP,

time is money, they say,

but sometimes, the time just isn’t right,

and some things shouldn’t be rushed,

regardless.

… Take a lesson from yesterday,

unless you want tomorrow’s garbage today.
