Right, Comrade, It’s the Hour of the Garden
– Pablo Neruda

Right, comrade, it’s the hour of the garden
and the hour up in arms, each day
follows from flower or blood:
our time surrenders us to an obligation
to water the jasmines
or bleed to death in a dark street:
virtue or pain blows off
into frozen realms, into hissing embers,
and there never was a choice:
heaven’s roads,
once the by-ways of saints,
are jammed now with specialists.

Already the horses have vanished.

Heroes hop around like toads,
mirrors live out the emptiness
because the party is happening somewhere else,
wherever we aren’t invited
and fights frame themselves in doorjambs.

That’s why this is the last call,
the tenth clear
ringing of my bell:
to the garden, comrade, to the pale lily;
to the apple tree, to the intransigent carnation,
to the fragrance of lemon blossoms,
and then to the ultimatums of war.

Ours is a lank country
and on the naked edge of her knife
our frail flag burns.


Untitled poem part 1

10 03 2009

An untitled poem I thought of while talking to a friend. And I know, I need a new Zen, and things to post while we’re at it.

Watching as the smoke drift from your mouth
Into the void of open air
The coldness lascerating your flesh
Whipping alabaster pigmentation red
The touch of your face
The sensation of my hand as i warm you

Moments of Zen has been so successful I’m making it permanent.  Oh and I’m changing the theme. I hate the current theme. It doesn’t help that wordpress sucks at providing good themes.

Dedicated to the seven souls who dared to reach for the stars

Before I get to the poem, two things.

One: I was suppose to post a simulcast op-ed today, however due to some personal issues it will be posted on Friday Morning

Two: Don’t be afraid to check me out on Pownce, and read my play by play whimsical ramblings.

Poetic News

29 07 2008

After a week of uncertainty, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (or simply DSM) poetic series (by me of course) is finally coming into fruition. DSM 1 and DSM 1B have just been released, and there’s more to come. DSM 2 has already been released a week ago.

Note: This is actually Part One (DSM 1) and Three (DSM 1B). Part two (DSM 1A) hasn’t been released (yet).

The video is more to reflect my personal mood, as opposed to the mood of the poems.
