passion play

9 May

haunted house, woman in red

Have you gotten a glimpse of the dark lord?

He swept me away.

I fell down a hole of his deception.

The body shook,

The body drained of its vital refreshment,

the body hung in a meat locker.


Wide World of Weird.

What do I desire?

My desire,

my longing –

a house.

Strange words and inconsistencies,

from the soft lipped sorcerer,

were overlooked in the rush to secure.

I went there; I peeked in the windows.

I saw myself under the tree out back having tea.

Whose property upon was I trespassing?

I allowed.

I watched the show, and I allowed.

Body shook and

shivered to the bone fear;

vulturous thoughts tore out my tendons in the hot sun.

I baked to

an ashy pile, then I was

blown away.

These death spices overpower the soup of our dark times –

out there – some of us eat  each other, raw and bloody,

Bill hicks, yes, it is just a ride and

just a breeze away – the mist from the salty marshes

can caress you with the non duality of the earth without man.

I can even giggle at the scary parts of this silly passion play.

Nothing lost ultimately;

no thing can touch nothing.

The underworld master is in a silly suit – acting his part.

At intermission, he visits the men’s room, and

at the end of the show, he takes his bow,

and pokes you in the ribs –

I scared you, didn’t I?  

Dancing with the Devil in the Pale Moon Light –

batman – the burn, an accelerant if you dare.

        All is well thank you, Marga, although your attached music video does speak to the Valley of Shadows that I must not worry about… To be reborn literally or metaphorically, that is the question.

      It is. I feel like explaining my cryptic poem…tough week – fell for a craig’s list house for rent scam – good ending all in all – lessons learned. dark players.
      I saw your work through the window…trying to coordinate with limited hours of Art Display. Hope you are well!

        Yes, I heard all sorts of horror stories about Craig’s List. I am glad that it ended well for you. Thanks for making the effort to see my art! 🙂 The Meeting Place Gallery is staffed Fridays and Saturdays from 11 am until 7 pm. All current work will be on display until beginning of June.

      Interesting to see the turn of the wheel from fear to calm; all is always well, though it may seem not so! X!
