Empty Inkwell

What writhes in the deep, O sweet beloved
my metronome, and spoken truth
what thoughts cross our paths on a night like this
dementia, and speckled swords of fallen stars
a dark dream follows me, quick to the heart
a hallowed moon, and a haunting memory to pass the time
still words in the dead of night, a still word
four hours until the sun bites the earth i move upon
a dawn of new things
i walk down the street and notice the jars
empty pockets of wealth and remorse
a jar moves into view, then another
in one i find a world unknown, pain
in the other lies the remnants of my youth
red hair appears, running down the brow of the universe
it marks the blood of the ancestor, and the next
the old world and the grateful dead
funny hats and broken bottles
first the house crumbles, then tomorrow
i walk down avenues not meant for my legs
i linger over thoughts of madness
and maddening thought
i walk to the store to buy a few soldiers
death is a luxury, but only when bought


Wounded We

look up
can you not see the world beneath your feet
the one that glows in darkest day
brightest bright
the ones you say you’d always know
the god in your pocket is the god you’ve grown
turn around and take a whiff
the death dealing won’t stop and you’re all alone now
no more crying
no clues for the mystery van
killer riff
burn the bed pans and break the black fang
turn your eyesight out in two
turn the rivers that flow in you
bottles and bottles and bottles
break ’em
burn the rivers, boil the skies
bake the mountains that fill with lies
the songs we sing for the signs we miss
the lives we want in a deathly kiss
paltry words mean nothing now
the earth is spinning upwards, how
no turning back, no loitering
don’t hang around the mall
a baby cries
and we turn and we turn
and we turn around until memories burn
we lie and we fade
I’m sure the skies will give shade
to bring barrens and bliss
while we summarize this
don’t worship the night and let the light linger
bring doubt to the party
now watch me snort glitter

Late Night Entropy

now tuned in to watch the animals party on
cracked ceramic sphere
yeah i see it coming, i see the swan song
the end is near
and all they want is more
the cage unlocked, the door wide open, mark the floor
Vader’s losing weight as the world progresses
nothing less and nothing more as the animals fester
mid life crises coming up from the black seeds
forgetting the families, forgetting the worth as we shoot the poor
shoot it up, shoot for more
3 pointers flow as the we hemorrhage the core
change the order of the chaos flow
the men up top know
no more and no go as the hammer pulls back
again through the alleys and light rays
no more toys to play with, no highways
buildings fall flat as the tendrils move
leeching life forward through the drug infused grove
the meddling, the noise it brings
we rip apart the words that made us
the skies that gave us
the light that saves us, saves you, no more
that’s true
loud booming and a train goes
another in the night, and the land knows
cracked up, the Lines they Ley
erupting with darkness, no majesty left
no time, the barony went
magic floods into the sky
we fall through worlds as our memories lie
no words, no hate
glass houses rise up and stand eternal
facade, and blessed with death
no lands to spoil the rod
much like the man that was, the hand that harms
the old god
