Remember when we were in Africa

exercise makes you horny

it’s the right amount of sex appeal
the provocative colors
imagery, imagination, grace
what I need for inspiration
the simple poetry
lighting the fire inside
pulling me into something deeper
between the lines
where they hide the secret key
to my consciousness

teleporting me home
from any physical existence

I want to be a poet
I want to be a poet
I want to be a poet
I am a poet
I always was
because I write
for myself
one day I will write for others too

Late September

I stepped outside to clouds
straight out of an impressionist painting
dark ones, low in the sky
still not on the horizon
and bright, white cotton
towering above
the sun’s rays igniting
the wispy patches in between
constantly in motion
whirling, drifting
some at breakneck pace
others brooding, or swiftly sailing
across the slowly dimming sky
then upon arriving home
out my window
a curious combination
one expanding, like a puffer fish
or a balloon blown into by a clown
and others wanting to get in the mix
to mask the scene
nothing was static
and I was captivated by it all

We didn’t come here to sleep around

he gives ideas out like candy on halloween
spreading opportunity if you decide to accept the challenge
but with freedom comes responsibility
it’s one thing to say that: “this concept is transformative”
it’s another thing to follow through with the transformation
something more than demonstration and report
the perseverance to live above this culture
is a constant struggle with your best instincts
and your worst fears
the good fight is the reward
it was never meant to taste sweet
the glory moments are misinterpretations
and your closest friends are sometimes your biggest enemies
