Apollo

Peel my eyelids away from my face
help me focus, help me see
reach into my center
kiss my galaxy

I spin madly away from this life
gnawing on dead space
his fingers spread deep
white laced with heaven,

I swirl toward angels and hell
all at once
He is Apollo –
Both God and Demon of love

I puff on his glass , inhale his acid
He takes me to paradise
with wings
covered in black ice

When he yanks me back to this truth
I fall to my knees and pray
I want him to stop
but beg him to stay

He smiles
then rolls his fog down my throat
God gave me my heart
but this Demon has my soul

A Back Load

Sleep with little weeping,
dream bitter sweetly,
drink your coffee with dignity and
don’t forget your pride.

Side with the blind sided,
tie down the unbridled,
drain out lying eye lids and
leave the world at fault.

So,your brain has been assaulted,
your body’s been crawled on,
it’s a massive load your hauling,
but you don’t know where you’re

going. To drop it or
to drag it,
burn it
or gag it.

I say,
season it with
changing seasons and
grow bigger than it.
