My Top 5 Anime of all Time…so far.

It’s a point of division amongst the anime community and it seems to be the basis for an endless debate. What is the best anime of all time? I am by nature a reasonable man and I understand that the issue of the anime pantheon, like anything else, is that it is heavily opinionated. So, [...]

Spoken Word?

Hello all. Recently I tried my hand at writing a piece more inclined towards spoken word. I had a good time writing it and putting it to music really made me feel like the work came to life. So, now I feel a desire to perform a piece live. I know that’s not quite feasible [...]

Querying

Ain’t I somebody? Don’t my blood count for nothing? Can’t I be a man without ya dogging me? Can’t I holler like the horns in the big band when the song gets real good? Can’t I stand up real tall daring the world to bring me down? Don’t I deserve to believe life ain’t just [...]

En Garde

“En garde”said the woman “Allez” said the man The two knights moved forward Sabers in hands The man lunged forward With impeccable stance, The woman quickly parried halting his advance The young man smiled Pleased with her actions, Riposte called the woman Now gaining traction The man stood froze, stunned by her cunning The two [...]

Love Ultra

Love, what a fine feeling... To have one to call your own. But for one who loves love, One love could never be enough. Perhaps polyamory provides a better possibility.

Tell me, do you speak the tongue of the broken? The language of the languished, Connotations steeped in the negative, [...]

Music Soul Child

The big band takes the stage. I wade through the taught bodies having been seized by the beat. The maestro fidgets about conducting their ecstasy. But the beat has long since escaped his purview. The drums no longer respond to the tap tap of the heavy set man affixed to the stool Nor do the [...]

Poem 3

Opposites attract-something about magnetic poles You are absolutely celestial- I’m rigid My limbs have longs since turned to stone My ears grown grey with gossamer... Soon I’ll be surrendered to the ages But you’ll  still be here And the whole universe will hear you weep for me Imagine Aphrodite in love with Prometheus Its laughable.

Taxiing

You’re allowed to dream in color ya know? And you don’t have to belong to the hands that hurt you. Gnawing. Gnashing. Kisses taste like pennies these days And hugs are far too intimate Prodding. Prickly. Happiness moved to Atlanta to be an actor But Indifference is right where it’s always been...providing, keeping a roof [...]
