slam, secret of the word

inside
screaming
outside
dreaming

new face
same shit
hard case
hypocrite

no faith
homeless
lone wraith
boneless

one word
love all
awkward
then fall

fabricate
and deprecate
complicate
then illuminate

shattered at the base
we stand waiting
in a collective mood
for the cosmic punchline
on time in mind
creeping sleeping
weeping and reaping
like there’s no tomorrow

eyes drip
first class
hearts flip
hourglass

epic duel
uptight
constant fool
appetite

tangled hair
underwear
lying still
unaware

sunset
sunrise
seeking the hustler
antagonize

drinking wine
trapped in time
sick verse
slick rhyme

standing with a lyrical beast
and sharpening swords
we await magical feasts
while severing chords
it’s an open ended dream
one we thought we’d hold
for infinity

held up
beat down
reading poetry
sad clown

meditate
street fight
alleviate
stage fright

microphones
and pheromones
dancing through
cyclones

peacetime
part-time
common thief
overtime

unending war
with ego’s fill
shut the door
then stand still

two souls connected
but lost in the search for meaning
the world revolves around
separate fates careening
end upon end
and the songs’ never complete
but still we bend
waiting, almost obsolete

upside
downhill
prophesied
set to kill

new age
walking on
old rage
magnetron

sex games
and totem blues
counterclaims
and hidden clues

soft lips caress
random connection
secrets to confess
sacred resurrection

wandering medication
symbols in seclusion
open vindication
discreet illusion

to all once and forever
journey’s past and present
i hand you this gift
light in the absence of love
may your wings never falter
