Wild Erased

Just settle down
Tell it to your manic
Who used to threaten the world
If it harmed a hair on my head?

Just go gently
Take your wild, man
Ever contemplate the green
Would snuff it out for settled-down love?

Harem

Only you untethered me
Then spoke of my hands as though I loosed the knot
Eventually, you accomplished me
Invisible
I sneak you now, I know you see
But do not speak to me
I, floating away in waters warm and calm
And infested
I don’t want to

Honor your empty manifesto, if you must

Prospector

I am never going to tell.

I’ll talk circles around them when they inquire and railroad them as they pry. I’ll question their questioning, “Isn’t it obvious?” I’ll ask.

And should they speculate, I’ll lead them on, Westward, with the same come-hither look in my eyes that you gave me.

You taught me what I’ll teach them: Find the glory…find you’re gold.
