Ignominious Rex

Emotional wrecks heap up on either side of the great divide of pride and point fingers at the other side. You lied no you lied no…

One finger shames, three point back to you. What you think it is is not what it is it’s what you say it is is not what it is, it is what it is and since it’s not a name, you’re not wrong all the way, since what you say is real… speaking of speaking, so to speak.

Why don’t we play a new game? Every one of us knows it by heart, you make the rules that apply to you, and tell the truth. But what if, you read lips and after taxes…

The fix is to do what you say, and say what you mean, because one thing leads to another, and the word becomes flesh and flesh becomes light, and steps on the stones.

Try to put civilization on skids, lay a new foundation and pray it fits, well, it sits but it’s the details we miss and we kiss our dumb asses goodbye when the big one hits.

We’re safe for a bit, but we’ve got to keep moving or call it quits, cash in your chips where the house always wins, be not afraid to step out of the valley of sins and repent, lather, rinse and repeat.

Do it for the kids. Oh speaking of which, Miss Givings and Ms. Carrage, have you been bullied and badgered and hounded, nagged and bagged on by a crowd of cowards, empowered by a pyramid scheme that stole all your spare hours, seized in a fever dream of eminent domain wolf blitz in sheep dip new media smoke screen?

No? Well it’s time for some answers, after these messages from our handlers: you cast the first stone, you rile the panthers, you dig in your heels, next come the panzers.


Flower Node

A slow flame

The flower in bloom

How long is the coastline

How ruffled the petals

In the origami timeline 

of networked plant mind

Unfolding consciousness 

Awareness to full earth

Bespoke in framed time

Thought pollinating sine

Ringed oscillations moire

Waves etch membranes

In universal binary

Growing deeper into center

Pushing for escape velocity

Orthogonal perspectives 

Glacial frieze of flow a whole

Hyperbole in symmetry

Reeling Off

wild nights
in and out of demand
desire contraband
define detriment
in a stately sarabande
a baroque consequent
of unknown losses
fired earthenware plans
made to be broken
brittle as they’re built
in this age of anyone can
the masters lost their heads
and the farmers their land

the baronese and príncipe
diverse deviant conquests
of repressed compensatory
tenderness in a debate of
usefulness to the herd
mentality of originality
is a process combinatorial
influence of more that way
and less what you say
but more is less in a way
robbed of meaning

to the contrary califate
opposing gated community
arousing unlaced shoes
of united walkers and
cobblers in confidence
of dubious lunacy
truancy for literary fluency
noncomformity for levity
fractured intrinsically
radiating symmetry
contemplate the gravity
administer a wave
to fibrillate the great
super string in sympathy
