"A Technicality"

It's all a technicality...

That is -

Your view,
And my view
Of reality -

And which view
Is the more true:

And which one
Is closer to
A world of
Pure fantasy?

Don't you see?

It's all a technicality...

And interestingly enough!

It's all become
Quite meaningless:

Just as I suppossed
It would be,
And should be -

For indeed!

What is a mere technicality -

When it comes to
You and me?

"Suicidal Reinvention?"

Was it suicidal reinvention -

Was that the intention?

Did you think
That would immortalize you?

Well, you didn't
Seem to realize
You weren't famous enough
For anyone to even care.

"Nymph"

She was like a nymph -

Or maybe I was going too far...?

Yet I so often
Placed myself 
Before her eyes,
That she might see me:

But she never saw me at all...

Though -

Thoughts of her!

Dreams of her!

Always took my mind and soul
To a great height:

And how I longed for her to love me -

But she never loved me at all...

My every fixed intent
Always came to nothing -

Because to her I was nothing...

And I at long last accepted -

That's what I would always be.

"The Power"

The power of democracy-

After any and all elections-

When the citizens,
Non-citizens,
And the dead have voted:

And let's not forget those who also voted-

And are said to have the right
To have their voice counted-

Even though they do not exist at all.

The power of democracy-

Very clearly,
There's a writing-

When the term "democracy" itself,
Becomes meaningless-

That is slowly appearing on the wall.

"Rehab Rationalizations"

There were all these rationalizations:

From them -

From me...

But none of them astounded me.

No, nothing they said, or I said - astounded me at all...

I didn't like them - I didn't like me.

And I especially didn't like this crap with the yoga.

A bunch of useless New Agers -

All part of the people I despise -

And in this instance, I didn't despise me...

But once I escaped this rehab center - first in my mind, and later in body:

They at least began to fade farther and farther into the background:

And I felt somewhat on the ascent -

No longer in such an absurd nightmare -

Because I think I must have died.

"Plummeting"

The wolves, they howl...

Oh, well-

The spiders, they spin their webs:

And the luna  moths, they fly...

Slow-motion dreams-

Plummeting me down:

From the sky....

"Winningly Intricate"

 (A Song)

You're winningly intricate-

Girl, that's what you are!

It's real-

And from what I can feel-

It really seems-

What with all our hopes and dreams-

Baby, we're going to go far!

You're wonderfully intriguing-

Just what I've been needing-

Girl, you're winningly intricate-

Yeah, that's what you are!

Oh, you're irresistible-

Girl, just like a fast car!
