Tight

This crisis
Unemployment
These jeans feel
So i let them sag
But now i waddle
And then I stumble
And now I’m

With the club promoter
With the lord of the land
At the words landlord
At the thought of injustice
At the REALITY that is ours
And hours I spend
And now my fist are sweaty
Because they’re held so

Are the bonds that bind us
We should hold our loved one(s)
Carefully to  that hope
To a better future
precluded by this dub of a wash
Twists & erratic turns today
But tomorrow’s fresh braids
map out zig zag paths
communities up on head
Tightly knit
resiliently weaved
Vibrant fatigues

Not for Debate

Off the dome
steadily separating the ruckus discourse 
One hand also
Through the recessed cuff
Waving fingers of Sugar-mapled experience
that nullify the arguments
that you can't be touched;
That progress can't be reached
In our lifetimes
Words ringing through the stirring
Of a reverberating pinky 
but most certainly through the directness 
of mind
That is commonly known, 
Seldom accepted, woefully Feared  
But secretly admired
These Master plans
 and their benefits
Clearly enunciated
To let the living ,
 Live Longer;
 The mind 
 retain balance;
 And the sick,
 override the limits of ailment 
 All in exchange
 only for the sake
 Of respect
 That others may live
 In their own paradise
 That equity through sovereignty and amnesty 
 Be known and acknowledged
  For it is their right
 Without costing you
 A portion of occupied comfort
 With no need for a gram of worked land,
 nor a grain of sand leisured  

An Amethyst Aesthetic

Between the red and blue
Is it two on the nose?
On the branching path under beholden
Sleuth
Mood lit dance to persuade,
That dirt thrown in haste
The sediment
of mud-layered
Set outside 3 to 4 point 0 extremes 
Within
encase
the building blocks
of an amethyst aesthetic
Doing what you want with what you have
As long as the process is fun
The end result
what you want
The outcome
close to your hopes

Partner 14: Nose Ring

Be to your partner what a nose ring is to their face
Confidently displaying what confidence your partner brings
More than an ornament too an already bejeweled lace
More than a statement piece
More than a metal thing
Be a shiny statement of stylized rebellion without the trend
A matching set of matte memos that tell the world
The self work
Was already in motion
the outward love
is already in play

Partner 11: Palette Advocate

Be the Palette Advocate
that will swiftly, carefully
scratch away the wet
From your muse’s face
And steadily, thoughtfully
bring on the best
with the dry brush ends
Texture the blush to your Cónyuge
These vivid pastel pom-poms
support the pastille dreams
Comfortable as the foam you rest on
with humid bristles, humbly
realize the moon lit mattress
Floating
Then Glaze, repeatedly
the shadows of love and hope
