NOT ENOUGH

Standard

Fire in AU by Stony River

Car ablaze in AU/Stony River

 

 

Slurping , sucking
licking, rubbing
of hands together-
flies void of prayer.

Ticking, tocking
clocking, tooling.

Not enough.

Insatiable appetite
for internet buzz.
Wasps, yellow jackets,
bees- all stand down.

The arachnid has
come to town & taken
over the buzz business.

Not enough.

Faster, faster,
text, text, text.
Spin, spin, spin
tweet, tweet, retweet.

Infamy: wheel of fortune
dragging a hanged man.

Not enough.

Enter into the lion’s den 
with your meager offerings-

to be tangled, mangled
& dangled; but decidedly

Not enough.

THE SEER

Standard

THE SEER

Craggy visage
framed by snow-locks.
Power mantle unfurls
upon a servant’s feet.

Garbled voices give
way to white-misted,
billowy clouds nesting
in a bed of symbols.

Flesh feasts
upon divine symbols
with viper-drool fangs.

The seer stands alone.

Wildflowers of white
yellow & lavender. Early
birds flying with mates.
Flooded creeks flash-dry.

Morning dew hides
from first light. Silence…
Rumbling underground
seeking wide-lipped spout.

Flurries scurry
to orbital peripheries. 
Discernment of shadows.

The seer stands alone.

Within timeless frames
& frameless times…

The seer stands alone.
