Althea Redux

settle back, jack, from this close attack
flush these minutes down through the cracks
its your shifted eyes that crowds attract
althea, my friend, give him some slack
gravity's grave is earths decay
widdled down reason, your words a play
crimson drips from a shiny blade
the knifes removed but the scar has stayed

The voices eclipse the surrounding mist
evinced in glimpses of embers crisp
in stoked excitement the twilight grips
fabric catches static and quickly rips
it's seam is stripped to shreds and slips
like words from lips that crack and split
a bed to rest and dreams distinct
Althea for me your his fingerprints

Loose with the truth, stokes the rising fire
truce is the news, but your starting to perspire
rain down friction when the scene seems dire
gets you clutching to the edge when you're down to the wire



Words of Wisdom

I'll always remember what my mother told me,
that I might be alone though her word may hold me
I should have been smart just stop and listen
but I talked too much, which left her reason hidden
but here's the admission, I won't deny my mission
to learn to breath, though i'm inconsistent
but my words they clang, souls might sting
clothes mights tear, and my worries cling
she said to wait, though patience had me thinking
I dug a trench, but then tried to sleep in
when I second guessed, memory stood to reason
I creeped in, a mental waring treason, but who sees in
also frees him, cancels pain, just to create beacons
light that streams from the current season
careful now just to relieve, just to ease in
don't ease don't ease, please freeze the seizure
of current teasing of the evolved creature
taught jesus is love, but his father the reaper.

When she spoke so slow, my soul it glowed
just to learn and know, that my mind might grow
but the bullets fly, scatter gull and crow
risen up from low, sky high fly explode
current event, dispense knowledge and less tense
past phrase, more intent then heads, bettin less
sell high and buy low fabulous phrase 20th century pharaoh
just so you know turn the phrase your way, current and flooded play
rising water, bursts the levies way, channel to delta, left a vast array
of blood sweat dripping, castle bridge enlisting 
knights to defend these walls, as princes drink 
deep in it's shrouded mead hall, as observers die and crawl, 
towards hell to vanquish all. Stand up tall, don't slouch, 
couple your money and your mind, porch or couch, cat call

vanity fall, like icculus, wax dripping and all.
