Huxley's Kaleidoscope: O Brave New World
Chaotic pieces of tinted glass / Kidnap loitering light / Slivered images of a history / Pause in fluid flight Frantic fragments frolic / On the landscape of man's mind<br /…
Morning Ritual
Nocturnal silence... The day is deep in sleep  / shhh!  her mind whispers / morning has not yet broken / going into tip toe mode  / a crick-crack explodes / plastic on p…
Birth of a River
mute starkness / an exhausted desert / blue sky white night / flesh on flesh / marital rite / in heat, soaked in sweat / body to body / a rapturous duet<br /…
Death of a Dove
A metal rain falls and punctures the morning / Dialogues of dread smother the breeze / Metalliferous clouds imprison the sunlight / Frightened faces carve the air with their screams…
Cogito Ergo Sum
Trees of autumn weep their beauty / Aging rainbows fall onto an anemic earth / Intellectual tears of / I think therefore I am / Cry molecules of philosophy / Over deaf grasses …

in the shadows of waning light

two senescent lovers lie
between sheets of waning light.

the moon spins the dis·s·ever·ing tale
of their relentless nothingness.

Desert Storm
Dust clouds of pain bring bruising rains / crumbling rocks mock human form / Kneeling in searing sands / shackled to shadows / a captive awaits his fate / in damning soundlessness / Emptiness silences the land - / earth to earth / / A fac…
The Lioness that Dwells Within
A feline dwells in your caverns of consciousness / Dauntless and determined her insignias of strength / Landscapes withered by winds of shallowness / Embrace her and harrow Man's badlands of descent Rocks of conformity will bruise perception / Caves of…
