The Manic Placements of a Cause Unknown

The beginning of an end…

to release, yet again
a series of mistakes
continuing to riddle the path.
the trail left behind-
shattered, torn, and patched.
their hearts and memories-
continue to mold
mutate-
an empty home,
fatherhood, laughter, and frusration
echo.
my rejection notice
to all that pass
quickly handed around
and plastered to my chest.
pictures of the fallen
stapled to my abdomen-
an early wake up call
thirty years late.
what was once written
as an epic tale,
ends with the self destructive
anti-hero.
he calls himself the martyr
though- he knows he began the war.
a mile long stare
a nervous smile
a fake laugh
decorate his face.
the billboard expands
his chest
creeps to his back.
mummifying this world
lighting a flame this life.
let it float away with the smoke.
litter the earth
to a more useful product.
the charred being
dusts off
and walks along.
used to the charade.
choosing only to dance
and live again.

shards

dust filled eyes,
scathed & scratched retina,
focused, projected,
shining light forces them
to close,
a wet source of shame-
the cloud of dirt
looms…  moving-
proceed forward,
the path- the trail-
forces of gravity push
and pull.
the pendulum swings.
audible betrayl.
lies transform to a mask.
worn to deliver
mirror like hate.

under this green canopy,
a fire burns bright,
errupting the edges
of what once was smoldered,
the crews battle to
save whats left.
the young continue
to play with matches.
