The Art of Tea and Poetry

Molecules of Moments... A Poetry in Pieces
Midnight / / Artemis peeks through the curtains of Night / ascending the stairs to her balcony of beams / leaning over the balustrade / she pulls back her bow to <br …
A Nursery Rhyme
Isaac and Ishmael fight over a Wall / Citizens and soldiers equally fall / Concessions and compromise and making amends / Will not put the dead back together again
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 /…
The Eagle
Perched high / On ragged crags of / Wordless thought / He waits A crystalline lake of Loneliness / Lays supine below / Insatiable hunger burns / Within Mast…
A Tapestry
A tapestry of enmity / Woven worlds of strife / Threads of hate collaborate / Unraveling all of our lives

City of Avenues

Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues
Launched hatred tears into urban skies
Falling thunder pierces fleshed emotion
Hammurabian thought precipitates
Eye for an eye

Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues
Atrophied molecules of amity die
Politicians spew speeches of angled advocacy
Drooling words drivel into truths that lie

A cacophony of fear stains urban bedrock
Angst paves panic on trembling streets
Mushrooming cement cubicles give counterfeit comfort
To the galleried faces of Munch's Scream

Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues
Shrapneled thorns lacerate skin that can't hide
Innocents murdered by falling ingots
Days and morrows haunted by shrieking cries

Crippled sunsets rise over the City of Avenues
A city terrorized by metal rain
Hope rots on broken sidewalks and houses of
A city that reeks of despair and pain

Lionhearted
A lion dwells in your sentient savanna / Persistence and purpose his badges of strength / Urban forests breed banality and bromide / Seize him and purge Man of his shallow decent Iron rods of conformity rust perception / Towers of compliance stunt natu…

Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues / Launched hatred tears into urban skies / Falling thunder pierces fleshed emotion / Hammurabian thought precipitates / Eye for an eye Metal rain falls on the City of Avenues / Atrophied molecules of amity die<b…
War of the Words
A page unfolds / horizontally / into a vertical universe… Vowels and Consonants conjugate / charcoaled characters draw their words / silented Syllables scream bloody murder / to the Sentence Structure Warlords. Morphemes of meaning resu…
Ignorant Pillars of Clay
Are deaf to the symphonies of the Milky Way / Celestial keys and chords of fire / Orchestrate a moonlit sonata on an Aeolian lyre / Orion's hand in Beethoven light / Conducts the overture illuminating the obsidian night
