Ecliptic

I often reflect:
If our shadows intersect
Is it the same as a touch?
We may not be one
But beneath a shared sun
Our overlap could be called such.

Tone Deaf

People would rather sit rapt for a fool
That capers about while proclaiming they’re cool
Than one who Is constantly honing their craft—
The watched or the watchers, which is more daft?

But such is the way of this woebegone world
Those who scream loudest are the only ones heard
Exclaiming obnoxiously me, Me, ME!
To a locked in crew because they can’t find the key.

All Together Now?

Unison or harmony
Which one is preferred?
I'd rather hear polyphony
Than one lie loudly slurred.

Flit or Flat

When ripped from the cocoon
Much too soon
Can beautiful wings ever form?
I wish it were so
But being low
Is more than likely the norm.

Codified

The woodsman went a hunting
For a tree on which to chop
Belittled by a bunting
As that cleric preached nonstop

The smallest at the gathering
Could barely make a peep
So spared excessive slathering
The woods were much too deep

And then, his robes so regal
The judge arrived in black
They had to make things legal
In case of a tweet attack.

Outro

The minstrel is once more
The maestro of the mess
He lost track of the score
And missed a vital stress

Resulting in a string
That breaks if it is bent
And soon it seems he’ll sing
A dirge without relent.

Kneaded

Time to kill?
Hit the grill
And let that glistening grease fulfill.

In the red?
Outta bed!
Go and make yourself some bread.

Innate

No one taught the rain to fall
It simply does, that is all
And thus it is for those who won’t
They never do because they don’t.

Unknowable

Who decides what’s true
Those without a clue?
You worry about you
And I’ll decide for me.

When they constantly bluff
Will you stand tough
And tell them ENOUGH
Or say “Gimme three!”

There is no debate
That love trumps hate
But can we differentiate?
Guess we’ll see.

Inner State

She cried, “There’s a masher outside the door!”
I said, “Party crasher, now scream no more.”
And everybody got funky for a little while
I never did find my way home
But I can tell, no matter where I roam
I won’t forget how that pretty girl made me smile

The sky was rosy like a drunken dream
While I got cozy with a soft moonbeam
And rode my silver steed towards the morning sun
The path to heaven narrows down a bit
Indulgent soles tend not to fit
Yeah no one said redemption would be fun.

Destitute

The wily one slithered
But sounded so wise
That once caution withered
We lusted for lies

Completely uprooted
The garden was lost
We struggle, polluted
Was it worth the cost?

Divergent

I can be a perverse man
But not in a kinky way
Unless that’s what you want *wink*
I just like to prove I can
When someone tells me nay
Or wants to make a self-righteous stink.

Haunting

Regardless what he shared
no one really cared
but he kept hitting post
a truly stubborn ghost 👻

Ball

When you endlessly dwell
But doubt won’t dispel
Don’t say what the hell
Make sure you choose well

For one little shrug
Can sentence the smug
To forcibly lug
Till their grave is dug.

Deniability

Everyone believes
One lie or another
And chooses to smother
The truth, then grieves

How cruel and unfair
Humanity acts
While denying the facts
That could end our despair.
