Literature
an anacreontic
apple peach cider is fine
I am happy it is mine
it does drink down rather fast
it's even good in the past

Literature
it has been said misery becomes me
It has been said mi-ser-y be-comes me,
suff-er-ing is the heart of my beau-ty.
I must ac-cept these fools and fool-ish claims
yet dwell-ing in this peace I am not free.
the face of my joy they would dread to see
the free-dom of a world dresst all in flames
still in this peace dwell-ing, I will not flee
in truth of de-ni-al I can still be
free, in truth, from the fear of their petty shames.
lock and key carv'd out of comm-on de-cree,
crush-ing speak-ers of truth with e-nough glee
to drown to death ever-y one of our games.
E-nough of peace and yes, e-nough of war
petty things, watch them die by inch-es, by yards
the walls fight 'gainst us, our own i-ron guards
they keep it from us, our fu-ture in store
per-haps you think I take de-light in gore
but the flame I speak of leaves no-thing charr'd
it is the fire re-flect-ed in the shard
and every young smith knows what such heat is for

Literature
accidental intentions
ac-ci-den-tal in-ten-tions, ah what pain
want-ing what ne-ver I want-ed be-fore
my life, my joy, in-com-plete, seek-ing more
find-ing my-self now cast from on the main
that I con-trol my life, to be so vain
to know my-self, I fear what is in store
want-ing, dread-ing, yearn-ing, fear-ing ever more
wan-der-ing I far-ther now from the plain
fleet-ing clar-it-y, all de-sire does cool
in time all bright fires gut-ter out and fade
pa-tience in all things, such com-fort, de-spair
caut-ion or a-ban-don, both ways a fool
the end of both paths I am just-ly paid
in truth, in life, all can be on-ly fair

Literature
knives dance along the line of sleep
knives dance along the line of sleep
wakefulness reduced to ribbons
time, the eternal enemy rejoices
dulling strength and mind
wakefulness reduced to ribbons
by the dawn's onrushing might
dulling strength and mind
for time of rest is drawing nigh
by the dawn's onrushing might
the flame of midnight's dim'd
for time of rest is drawing nigh
night's substance grows thin
labor ends at time of sun
time, the eternal enemy rejoices
accepted by fate, unconditional surrender
knives dance along the line of sleep

Literature
Samhain Story
In the realm of the gods there can be no lies. It is their nature to hear the words of the heart, not the words of the voice, and it is for that reason that I now speak the words that the gods heard on that night.
I was on one night privileged with an early audience before the Judges of the Dead. As preparation for such an audience, it was given to me to fill myself with all that is good in life. Even as I ate and drank, I was aware of a certain hollowness. This celebration filled me more with dread than with joy, and I feared they would see.
My turn at audience came sooner and later than I might have chosen it, but I felt as ready as I was going to be. I had my paltry offerings. I was not prepared, and I knew it.
The first to judge me was Ma'at of the sky, she who crafted all. She demanded of me what I was creating, and I answered how I was working to create myself. This answer satisfied her, and she accepted my offering.
The second to judge me was Toth of the Scroll, scribe of the go

yes
what else could be
thief of clarity
echoing cacophony

Literature
one and one and one and one
one and one and one and one
time goes ticking one by one
endless moments never done
time for fear and time for fun
one and one and one and one
truth we build it one by one
stacking actions as we run
and ever the universe is spun
one and one and one and one
death comes for us one by one
little lives burn under the sun
ending before, in truth, begun

Literature
underground angles
underground angles
strange, secret, dark
insensate regions
inversive realms apart
echos of bent bangles
in places void of spark
the dizzy legions
dance with frenzied art
the mind it mangles
lightless shadows stark
madness it seasons
with visage sans heart
nerve jangles
will strangles
thought tangles
here dangles
I

Literature
patient while patience pleases
patient while patience pleases
wrath in time and turn
fickle thing in earnest
yet bounded 'round by rule
while the change never ceases
life to fritter and burn
mortality spurnest
and we ever play the fool
better not to take chances
as we always must learn
strange sight to mistrust
lest we be naught but fuel

Literature
patchwork people
we are the patchwork people
the mend and make do
carving our bodies from
remnants and glue
crafting with care
without despair
lives we can bear
from what you can spare
we are the patchwork people
hidden from view
you will not see us
with eyes numbered two
naught else but free
no destiny
lives full of glee
despite no glory
we are the patchwork people
never do we grow
life cannot change us
whatever we do
patchwork unchanging
free of decaying
tribute unpaying
but what are we saying?

Literature
Reminiscense Of The Never-were
reminiscense of the never-were
a dream
an image
nothing more.
framings of a closeness unknown
merest imagining.
no memory.
no hope
for hope is thin denial.
it draws me not.
faintest wondering of a different branch
snuffed
as it should be.
as it is.
peace and joy attend all paths.
peace be with me.
and with you.

Literature
so very tired
red of eye
short of care
still there can be no despair
time draws near
an end to blear
nap time will be shortly here
hunger beckons
is not mere
food must come 'fore sleep I fear
end draws close
just round the bend
class time now is soon to end

White Lie

and keep it 'til the end
Green Lie
bigger lie

I will tell a bigger lie

lie that mustn't end.
I must tell another lie
to get me 'round the bend
Red Lie
giant lie
lie that does defend.
this must be the final lie
all these lies to tend
Purple Lie
rotting lie
why must I pretend?
every word I say does lie
I now apprehend
Orange Lie
spreading lie
I everywhere do send.
essence now does also lie
please help me to transcend

the all consuming flame
the earth that swallows
the sea that takes and does not return
the air that saps and steals
witness my words and carry my will

with tooth and hunger I call you
with rage and will I bind you
with truth and fury I name you
Devourer, that which eats

there is a fool much loved by fools
find him, hurt him, kill him.
break bone chew meat drink blood crunch cartilage
a fang for the throat
a bug for the brain
a pestilence for the blood
a maw for the corpse
take this man and make him dead.
