unhinged

Candy floss in hand
taking a stand all demands
left on his own
taken out to the barren zone
of lifes dark moods
swinging open without reserve
boundaries cast beyond
the shores of constraint and
hidden pleasures

projector

Dispel light onto the screen
we scream and yell
for what the hell I don’t know
out into the night
to face realities blinding light
tansparent fixation on display
as we trapes across the landscape
simple symbols of what we wish
our life would be
could be something
a taste of a dream

scientific

It’s what I believe
and see as the future
all is real through
data and logic
no fantasy
clear thingking in a realm
of vision and imagination
where man takes a forward step

workshop

Leave me be
In this place of bliss
Little is missed and
nothing prearranged
just take for granted
I’ll always be red
through this atmosphere
of glee and siime
sweat it out for the upteenth time

honor

It’s not a salute
or the medals they wear
the time we spend in danger
with no sense of harm or fear
kept without the limits of restraint
disregard the nature of simple survival

disturbed

They turn me on my head
spin me like a top
those crazy colors
and ocean fronts
dancing chaos of fantastic lights
seen through the cosmos
of someones endless sight

scripted

Always so known
so predictable
Can’t catch a rhyme
for all the muscle in my mind
taken and replaced
with a desgin beyond
this oaken prose
with dribbles of acid
to seek new lines and scenes

central

Point of interest
taken on the run
on through the portal
focus on the one
painted with the blandness
of what neither left or right
never really certain
what’s the side of shadow

fence

to keep us in
or them out?
distance between what we have
and waht we can’t
those we se
and those within
sheltering us from our fears
deep rooted prejudice
sacred songs and
cherished beliefs

threaten

Hold the iron above me
cast dark shadows within
terror taken lightly
careening towards the end
stillness evokes a passion
beyond the dusky terminal
a lasting impression marks
passage towards a truth

bait

I’m what they want
tasty morsel
fit for a king
taken whole
or bite size pieces
sliced and diced
to suit the need
cast upon the waters
left to drift alone

suit

Dressed up for the circus
daily life abounds and collides
taken from the rack
all my guises seem to fit
in a package made
for more than just me
anyone can fit
it’s the wrapping
not the content
where it counts

timeline

Timeline, deadline
all the same
drag me down
tie me down
who’s to blame
take aim at all I do
Confused and tried
my undoing
can’t conceive of a better way
bite the bit
carry the weight

lounge

You lizard
smoked filled rooms without a view
taken in the morning
resting in the evening
startled by the raven hue
of starlets yet discovered
secrets left dripping
with crimson dew

drag

The strip where I grew up
long, dark blacktop
pitted with age and use
flat, straight narrow
Lolely road with a distinct beginning
a certain end
no bends
no dips
life in the quarter mile

scanned

Technology always on my mind
clock ticking
spinning in my head
taken from the cerebral wake
sheets of data passing across the table
all the machines tracking life’s course
cells to bytes
thoughts to ink

jury

Acguitted of no crime
stand aloone
the worlds a stage
us against them
recurring theme
justice for all
priced at the local mall
plays o mankind
richly displayed
men in black cloaks
within hides the joke

study

keep it tight
and to yourself
delve into the dullness of lightining strikes
kept apace beyond the void
deepened understanding
of deft stretches of mind and strain

» Posted By Protean On 07.08.2015 @ 8:54 pm

corrosive

destructive by it’s own means
taken out of context
never ending schemes
of men and places
vices and desires
seeking only what wanted
not what’s needed
taking for all
regardless of status
putting on faces
convenient graces

» Posted By Protean On 07.07.2015 @ 8:32 pm

toned

Pretend you’re an easel
and paint pretty pictures
tapestry of flesh
on brittle bones of calcuim crust
do what you can with what comes naturally
a blend of songs and poems
dowsed in tawny sinews

horses

Go with me to wild places
beyond the reach of everyday spaces
taken in to see the sites
of long distant passes
cold windy nights
in the the now with all the right minds
off with the stars in darkness with light

opportune

Take your chanes when they come
See an opening
Fear not don’t run
Stay alive be there when you can
Life does not abound in riches of chance
Grab what you can with fervor and grace

provider

Keep me in the loop
Candy on my table
Lettuce in my hand
Strength from generosity
Blessings from abundance
Always there when needed
And often when not
Strong hand supports
Weak limbs and empty stomachs

ballet

Soft as air
Hard as a calloused fist
Through the breeze
A staged belief
All so balanced
Art of controlled motion
Lift and sail on toes and out stretched arms
Ultimate statement of dance and charm

salesman

Knock on the door
What a bore
Brushes to bottles whatever to sell
Makes a buck for whenever he can
Mailorder as well
Name your price cause he’s the man

» Posted By Protean On 03.19.2015 @ 8:49 pm

undone

Unlaced and unkempt
Kept in a closet without a door
Incomplete without release
Taken and deserted on a high school street
Staid and faded from ashen times
Returned to the beginning
A complete reversal

panda

Domino dummy with a head like a pumpkin
huggible ursine monster on a chain
where you call home is man’s retreat
nothing left for you but what’s on our sheet
like so many you’re not what you appear
tear off a face like a grizzly or a cheetah

» Posted By Protean On 03.15.2015 @ 9:10 pm

piano

play like Elton john
virtuoso so sublime
singing out for all to embrace
lighted sounds cast into the air
generations beyond our time
sit and listen to the joyous sound
defining what our lives have been

» Posted By Protean On 02.07.2015 @ 9:11 pm

metered

At length I believe in the ways and rule
measured spaces and depths
taken with care and detail
for the sake to know how
and knowing how far
we take and we need
the distance we’ve come and
the distance to go

catwalk

Stealth abounds
soft paws peddle across the lawn
never know she’s coming unless
by her choice
quiet as the morning breeze
across the dew laden grass
