"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!

"From All Interpretations"

From all interpretations-

Within the essence
Of any given situation-

To that which is
Genuinely seen.

Especially
If it signifies-

And doesn't attract flies.

Simple evidence-

If only to arise-

To the absolute sphere
Of dreams!

"And All Things Are Possible"

Merely to the possible-

And all things are possible-

Scattered wide through
Hopes and dreams:

As to what is observed,
And what can be imagined:

Seeking the atmospherical,
As well as the flavor
That might bring
A portion of the actual
Into what is only
Considered fantasy:

For who but fools,
Have any desire
To keep themselves
Confined undeviatingly
Within-

Only those things
That have been-

Never casting
Their thoughts
Nor their hearts
Upon what
Might be?
